Abstract

Twenty years ago, on the 6th January 1967, the astronomer Giovanni Battista Lacchini died in Faenza, a town near Bologna where he was born 82 years before, on the 20th May 1884. But, as we shall see, he spent most of his life very far from Faenza, moving his residence all around the Italian peninsula and also over other countries.
