# Titlepage dissertation help

I've been trying to figure out how to fix my dissertation titlepage but it's driving me nuts!! I need to produce an output exactly like this (sorry for dividing the whole pic):

In the first black box a university logo should appear and in the second the university name. Then below where it says "candidato" there's going to be my name and my student number, where it says "relatore" my teacher's name. I'm working in report-ambient.. any help would be great!!

\begin{titlepage}
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[width=0.42 \textwidth] {logo}\\
\vspace{7 em}
{ \text{University}}\\
\vspace{1 em}
{ \text{Faculty}}\\
{ \text{type of degree}}\\
\vspace{4em}
{\text{Thesis type}}\\
\vspace{4em}
{\huge \textbf{title}}\\
\vspace{4 em}
{\text{Candidate:}}\\
{\large\textbf{Myname}}\\
{\text{mynumber}}\\        \vspace{4 em}
{\text{teachername:}}\\
{\large\textbf{\textit{Prof.} name}}\\
\vspace{4em}
{\text{year}}\\
{\text{date}}\\
\end{center}


Which is nothing like the one above. It has to be exactly like that one: with the two lines and same architecture. I'd rather keep the report ambient to avoid other issues with the rest. Also I tried the frontespizio package but it's not working.

• Welcome! Please post the code you've got so far or, at least give us a minimal document with your class and the textual content of the page. Also, be sure to include any relevant packages (not all of your packages!) e.g. if you are using a package to change the paper size, that would obviously be relevant. – cfr Aug 28 '15 at 16:20
• Welcome, for a start you can have a look at How to customize my titlepage? and a few more examples at github.com/johannesbottcher/titlepages – Johannes_B Aug 28 '15 at 16:21
• Also, if your class is really report-ambient, we'd need a link if you're stuck. – cfr Aug 28 '15 at 16:21
• @cfr Concerning the class, use stadard report or article or whatever and include the titlepage using pdfpages. I find that to be much more simple than fixing margin stuff with geometry. There are strange things out there. – Johannes_B Aug 28 '15 at 16:24
• Have a look at the frontespizio package: it has a default layout similar to your needs, but it can be customized. – Pier Paolo Aug 28 '15 at 16:40

With the package frontespizio it's really easy.

\documentclass[a4paper]{book}
\usepackage{frontespizio}

\begin{document}

\begin{frontespizio}
\Universita{Roccacannuccia}
\Facolta{Scienze Matematiche, Fisiche e Naturali}
\Corso[Laurea triennale]{Fisica}
\Titolo{La fase di Berry}
\Candidato[12345]{C. Andidato}
\Relatore{Prof.\ R. E. Latore}
\Logo{../duck}
\end{frontespizio}

\frontmatter

\tableofcontents

\mainmatter

\chapter{Introduzione}

Eccetera

\end{document}


If this document is called fasediberry.tex, running LaTeX on it will also produce a file called fasediberry-frn.tex. Run LaTeX over this one and rerun LaTeX on the main document.

It's not necessary to run LaTeX over fasediberry-frn.tex each time, just when the file has not yet been created or the contents of the frontespizio environment has changed.

If you know and use arara, the directive

arara: frontespizio


will do all the work for you.

I used lualatex, but you can change it to pdflatex ( {fontspec}-> [T1]{fontenc}. The titlepage has another layout:

\documentclass[a4paper]{book}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{libertine}
\begin{document}

\begin{titlepage}
\vspace*{-4cm}\enlargethispage{3cm}
\hspace*{-2cm}\begin{minipage}[c][\dimexpr\textheight+6cm]{17cm}\centering\sffamily
\includegraphics[width=1cm]{tiger}

\large\textbf{Università degli Sudi Roccacannuccia}
