Abstract

Antonio Nardi was born in Arezzo in the final decades of the sixteenth century and died before the middle of the seventeenth. He was a learned philosopher and expert on classical culture and languages. Under the guidance of Benedetto Castelli, he became a skilful mathematician, highly esteemed by Galileo, with whom he corresponded. He and his friends Torricelli and Magiotti were jokingly known as the 'triumvirate'. By means of a close reading of his writings, which remain unpublished, an attempt is made in this article to study the chronological development of his thought, especially whith regard to understanding the miscellany of subjects he treats in his major work, Scene. The cultural and political difficulties which prevented the new science from taking root in Italy are also discussed.
