Days of Firing from a Dirigible

Chapter

Abstract

While it’s true that the years at the beginning of the century were particularly lively and rich in initiatives for Italian culture in general, and specifically for the scientific movement, Volterra’s energy was singular and genuinely limitless even for that period. The international congress in Rome had hardly finished, with the unpleasant aftermath that we mentioned, before he immediately threw himself into the planning for what would become the Italian Thalassographic Committee.
