Antonio Meucci e la città di Firenze

Tra scienza, tecnica e ingegneria
  • Edited by:
  • Franco Angotti,
  • Giuseppe Pelosi,

To mark the bicentenary of the birth of Antonio Meucci, under the umbrella of the «Genio Fiorentino» initiative three important events addressing the figure of the famous inventor of the telephone and the culture of his time were organised by the National Committee for the celebrations, the Provincial Authority and the University of Florence. Bringing together the contributions made on these occasions, this book starts with an initial pictorial itinerary through Meucci's Florence focusing on his educational formation in the Restoration Grand Duchy, and going on to embrace more generally the cultural climate and the technical and scientific milieu of early nineteenth-century Tuscany. A special section is devoted to the aspect of communications at the time, with a view to placing in its historical context the technical and scientific environment in which Meucci's training took place.
