Nocera de' Pagani or Nuceria Paganorum is the name under which was known in the past, between the 16th century and 1806, a civitas that included a large portion of the Agro Nocerino-Sarnese, composed of 5 existing municipalities: Nocera Inferiore, Nocera Superiore, Pagani, Sant'Egidio del Monte Albino and Corbara. Ugo de' Pagani came from Nocera de' Pagani. Reference to Nocera as his birthplace is found at least as early as Baedeker's Southern Italy (1869)[1] and is also found in the Old Catholic Encyclopedia.[2] Two more recent writers say that the theory is supported by a letter that Hugues wrote from Palestine in 1103, in which he talked of writing to "my father in Nocera" to tell him of the death of his cousin Alessandro.[3][4]
