Abstract

title SUMMARY /title In the years following 1820, when the town became part of the Kingdom of Italy, Rome was seeking to forge its new identity. The scientific culture of the town is a little known feature of this process, and yet it offers important insights into the economic planning and the cultural policy of those years. These features are also at the basis of today's roman scientific museums. In 1873, on the occasion of the celebration of the fourth centenary of Copernicus' birth, it was proposed to establish a Museo Astronomico e Copernicano. The original proposal for a museum devoted to collecting documents and memorabilia of Copernicus' italian period, soon became the project for a more ambitious Museum.
