The Cats of Torino

  • Angelo Guerraggio
  • Giovanni Paoloni


The 1890s opened with the important new phase of the transfer to Torino. We don’t know exactly what the reasons were that led Volterra to leave the University of Pisa, where not only had he received his training, but where he had also been given a chair at a very young age. To be sure, the desire to ‘liberate’ himself from the watchful eyes of those who were by then his colleagues, but had just a few years earlier had been his teachers, must have played a role. It is easy to imagine that Professor Volterra, within the Faculty of Sciences, was still the young Volterra to the many older chair-holders who had known him when he was only 18 or 19 years old.
