The Historical Archives of the Department of Physics collected in the network
14 archival funds of italian physicist ready for consultation
Since the end of the 1980s, the History of Physics group, formed within the Department itself and composed of Giovanni Battimelli, Michelangelo De Maria, Mario Grilli, Lucia Orlando, Giovanni Paoloni and Fabio Sebastiani, has worked on the recovery, preservation and organization of personal archives of Italian physicists. It is superfluous to underline the great importance in the field of historical research, and in particular of historical-scientific research, of the archival documentation constituted by the papers of scientists. Over the years, the Group has progressively reduced, while the number of archive collections collected has increased.
The documentation is kept in modern compactus in the Library of the Department.
