Calvi Risorta is an Italian municipality ( comune ) with 5611 inhabitants (as of December 31, 2019) in the province of Caserta in Campania . The municipality is located about 23 kilometers northwest of Caserta and about 43 kilometers north-northwest of Naples on the Monti Trebulani . The administrative seat is in the district of Zuni .


The ancient city of Cales was located here in the municipality that was originally settled by the Aurunkians . It was probably up to 2,500 people who made up the city. Cales was conquered by the Romans as early as 335 BC. Cales was the seat of a bishop until the 5th century. In 879 the city was destroyed by the Saracens. The city was then rebuilt under the Normans. In 1818 the diocese, which had its seat in the newly established city of Calvi, was abolished and incorporated into the diocese of Teano.


The A1 autostrada from Rome to Naples and - almost parallel to it - the Strada Statale 6 Via Casilina run through the municipality .
