The National Conferences of Italian Naturalists

The annual conferences of Italian Scientists (nine of them during the period 1839-1848) were an important and stimulating occasion of encounter for the men of science of the time and showed the existence of a united Italian culture. The online publication of the Proceedings of the Congresses of Italian Scientists constitutes the first part of a project which also intends to make available to scholars previously unpublished holdings, such as the Proceedings of the Venice Congress (1847).
