La prima parte di questo volume è dedicata a questioni concernenti i fondamenti della matematica tra Cinquecento e Seicento. Nel capitolo primo è discusso il punto di vista di Alessandro Piccolomini sulla "quaestio de certidudine mathematicarum", che mirava a spiegare i motivi per cui le conoscenze fornite dalla matematica sono più sicure e solidamente fondate di quelle offerte da ogni altra disciplina. Nel secondo capitolo è analizzato, attraverso la lettura di un lemma del "De verborum vitruvianorum significatione" di Bernardino Baldi, un aspetto dell'evoluzione dei concetti di numero e grandezza alla fine del Rinascimento. Il terzo capitolo verte sulle soluzioni offerte da Girolamo Cardano, Giovanni de Guevara e Galileo Galilei al paradosso della "rota Aristotelis": i primi due contribuirono a chiarire l'aspetto cinematico del movimento della ruota, mentre il terzo ne fece il punto di partenza per una minuziosa analisi dell'infinito e del continuo. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… The first part of this volume is devoted to questions concerning the foundations of mathematics between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The first chapter discusses Alessandro Piccolomini's point of view on the "quaestio de certidudine mathematicarum," which aimed to explain the reasons why the knowledge provided by mathematics is more secure and solidly founded than that offered by any other discipline. In the second chapter, through the reading of a lemma from Bernardino Baldi's "De verborum vitruvianorum significatione," an aspect of the evolution of the concepts of number and size at the end of the Renaissance is analyzed. The third chapter focuses on the solutions offered by Girolamo Cardano, Giovanni de Guevara and Galileo Galilei to the paradox of the "rota Aristotelis": while Cardano and de Guevara helped to clarify the kinematic aspect of the movement of the wheel, Galilei made it the starting point for a meticulous analysis of infinity and continuity.]
