Abstract

The aim of this paper is to study G. Fano’s (1871-1952) personal collection of volumes and offprints, currently preserved in the Special Mathematical Library “G. Peano” of the University of Turin. This type of investigation allows to examine some aspects connected to Fano’s international relationships, as well as to give a glimpse of his personal trajectory. Furthermore, the analysis performed through the digital humanities software Palladio provides an interesting overview on the cultural roots of his research activity. Finally, following the works on C. Segre’s and A. Terracini’s library heritages, this case-study adds another piece to the reconstruction of the cultural heritage of the Italian School of algebraic geometry.
