Nel 1801, Monaldo Leopardi (padre del poeta Giacomo) sperimentò il vaccino contro il vaiolo, somministrandolo ai figli Giacomo, Carlo e Paolina, con ottimo esito. Fu la prima vaccinazione contro il morbo nello Stato Pontificio, contemporanea a tentativi analoghi promossi negli altri Stati italiani e in Europa. Sul suo esempio, la profilassi si diffuse nelle vicine città, e nei trienni 1816-1823, diventato Gonfaloniere di Recanati, Monaldo Leopardi continuò a sostenerla in nome del bene pubblico. Il testo intende far luce sulla lungimirante politica sanitaria di Monaldo, tracciandone un ritratto inconsueto, lontano dalle tradizionali narrazioni legate al cliché del conservatore retrivo. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… In 1801, Monaldo Leopardi (father of the poet Giacomo) experimented with the smallpox vaccine, giving it to his children Giacomo, Carlo and Paolina, with excellent results. It was the first vaccination against the disease in the Papal States, at the same time as similar attempts promoted in other Italian States and in Europe. Following his example, smallpox prophylaxis spread to nearby cities, and in the three-year period 1816-1823, having become Gonfaloniere di Recanati, Monaldo Leopardi continued to promote this practice in the name of the public good. The text aims to shed light on Monaldo's far-sighted health policy, tracing an unusual portrait, far from the traditional narratives linked to the cliché of the conservative backward person.]
