Abstract

title SUMMARY /title Italian chemistry in the second half of eighteenth century was strongly characterized by ambivalence. On the one hand there were the experimental and technical contributions by Landriani, Fontana, Volta, Spallanzani, Giobert, and many others, who immediately contributed original results to the debate on gases which was going on between English and French chemists. On the other hand there was a lack of interest from the same scientists for the theoretical and methodological issues of the controversy between Lavoisier and Priestley. It was this lack of interest, due to their opposition to the abstract and philosophical aspects of chemistry, that cut off the italian chemists from the theoretical debate.
