To install the distribution:

o run "latex frontespizio.ins"
o run "{|pdf|xe}latex example{a,b,c,d,e}.tex" for a test
o run "{|pdf|xe}latex example{a,b,c,d,e}-frn.tex" for a test
o run "{|pdf|xe}latex example{a,b,c,d,e}.tex" for a test
o after the tests, you should have correct dvi or pdf 
  example files (choose either latex, pdflatex or xelatex
  and compile each of the three examples)
o move "frontespizio.sty" to locations where LaTeX will find
  it (the FAQ on CTAN in /help/uktug-FAQ gives more
  information about this magic place)

fron­te­spizio – Create a fron­tispiece for Ital­ian the­ses

Type­set­ting a fron­tispiece in­de­pen­dently of the lay­out of the main doc­u­ment is dif­fi­cult. This pack­age pro­vides a so­lu­tion by pro­duc­ing an aux­il­iary TeX file to be type­set on its own and the re­sult is au­to­mat­i­cally in­cluded at the next run. The markup nec­es­sary for the fron­tispiece is writ­ten in the main doc­u­ment in a fron­te­spizio en­vi­ron­ment.

Doc­u­men­ta­tion is mainly in Ital­ian, as the style is prob­a­bly apt only to the­ses in Italy.
