I use Beamer for my presentation. I am using the Berlin theme. I would like that only the title page (first slide) did not show the header and the footer line indicating the index of the topics, the title, etc. I tried to use [plain] just after \begin {frame} of the first slide but it takes away the university logo (I don't want to take it off). How can I solve? Thank you enter image description here

I would like to add the University logo in the same position of all other frames (Berlin theme).

\documentclass[12pt]{beamer}
\usepackage[italian]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\newcommand{\pngfigspath}{./figures_png_beamer/}

\title{Indagine numerica sulle prestazioni di una turbina eolica ad asse verticale di tipo troposchiano}
\author[UniBG]{\texorpdfstring{\large Alessandro xxx\\ \small Relatore: Chiar.mo xxx\\ \small Correlatore: xxx}{Alessandro xxx}}
\date{Tesi di Laurea Magistrale, xxx}
\logo{\includegraphics[width=20mm]{\pngfigspath Uni}}
\institute[Uni]{Corso di Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria meccanica\\Università xxx}

\usetheme{Berlin}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}%[plain]
    \maketitle
\end{frame}

\end{document}

  • You can place the logo manually somewhere with \insertlogo. But it would be much easier to help if we had some code to play with...

You have to temporarily deactivate the headline and footline templates for the titlepage and then reinstate the ones from the Berlin theme afterwards. The command to set a specific template is \setbeamertemplate and you already found out that headline/footline are the corresponding ones you need to change.

To clear them, just call \setbeamertemplate{headline}{} and to reinstate them call \setbeamertemplate{headline}[miniframes theme], be aware to use the right brackets!

Here is how to use it in an extended MWE of yours:

\documentclass[12pt]{beamer}
\usepackage[italian]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\title{Indagine numerica sulle prestazioni di una turbina eolica ad asse verticale di tipo troposchiano}
\author[UniBG]{\texorpdfstring{\large Alessandro xxx\\ \small Relatore: Chiar.mo xxx\\ \small Correlatore: xxx}{Alessandro xxx}}
\date{Tesi di Laurea Magistrale, xxx}
\logo{\includegraphics[width=20mm]{example-grid-100x100bp}}
\institute[Uni]{Corso di Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria meccanica\\Università xxx}

\usetheme{Berlin}

\begin{document}

\setbeamertemplate{headline}{}
\setbeamertemplate{footline}{}

\begin{frame}%[plain]
    \maketitle
\end{frame}


\setbeamertemplate{headline}[miniframes theme]
\setbeamertemplate{footline}[miniframes theme]

\section{Section}
\subsection{Subsection}
\frame{A frame}
\frame{Another frame}

\end{document}

And this is the title page and first slide:

  • @pmaen if you are interested in a solution for that, please open a new question with a reference to this question.

  • I solved the issue in some other way back than (I don't remember how exactly from the top of my mind). Maybe I'll open a question and answer it myself when I have looked it up. But thanks for the tip.
