Abstract

The mutual influence between the most original Italian and French mathematicians are investigated, from the early 18th century to the fall of Napoleon. The model of the Académie des sciences et belles lettres in Berlin was a winner over the French model of the Académie des sciences. Mathematicians in Italy, such as Boscovich, Malfatti, Mascheroni etc. continued to look mainly at the works of Johann and Daniel Bernoulli, Euler, and then Lagrange in Berlin. After Napoleon’s Italian Campaign, interactions in research between Italian and French mathematicians were prevalent, thanks also to the stay in Italy of Monge and Prony, of Lagrange in Paris and to the French exile of Mascheroni and Brunacci. The model adopted in Italy throughout the nineteenth century was that of the Institut de France of the Revolution and of Napoleon.
