From the reviews:

“This book is the result of a conference held in 2008 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Giuseppe Peano’s birth and the 100th anniversary of one of his most famous works, the Formulario Mathematico. The nine articles survey various aspects of Peano’s work in mathematics and logic. … overall this small book provides a great way to begin exploring the work of Giuseppe Peano.” (Fernando Q. Gouvêa, The Mathematical Association of America, May, 2011)
