Abstract

The correspondence between Federigo Sclopis and Quintino Sella

The study is based on the correspondence between Quintino Sella (1827-1884) and Federico Sclopis (1798-1878), one of the most important jurists of the 19th century. It illustrates the management of the principal academic institutions of the time, both in Turin (Regia Deputazione di Storia Patria, Accademia delle Scienze, R. Scuola di Applicazione per gli Ingegneri) both in Italy (Accademia dei Lincei) and it also reports on many prestigious university professors. Interesting details emerge about the scientific collections of those institutions and the progress of the scientific knowledge, especially in crystallography and in optics. Finally the correspondence revels the personal relationship concernig political affairs.
