Antonio Favaro e l’edizione nazionale galileiana. Ragguaglio su una teca digitale (2023)


Sebastiano Timpanaro Snr., the first director of the Domus Galilaeana in Pisa, recognised that the philological and historical work of Antonio Favaro should be one of the principal concerns of the institute that had been entrusted to him at the beginning of the 1940s. He thus, together with Giovanni Gentile, the institute’s president, took action to ensure that the Domus acquired Favaro’s library and archive which were in the care of Favaro’s son Giuseppe. The delays due to the worsening effects of the war and the unexpected deaths of Timpanaro and Gentile prevented the material, following its acquisition, from being used for a systematic study. Now the Theka@Favaro, curated by the Museo Galileo, carries forward this original intention through the use of modern computer technology. It constitutes a multifaceted digital library capable of providing anybody interested with first-hand material together with useful tools for its interpretation and contextualisation.
