Giuseppe Grioli (April 10th, 1912 in Bordonaro, frazione di Messina, Italy; †March 4th, 2015 in Messina, Italy) was a Mathematical Physicist with special interests in continuum mechanics and stereodynamics.

Early Life and Education

Giuseppe Grioli was born in Bordonaro, a small village in the surroundings of Messina, on April 10, 1912. He graduated with honors first in Physics and later in Mathematics from the University of Messina. Then his supervisor Renato Einaudi, a professor of rational mechanics student of Levi-Civita, suggested him to move in Rome where he met Antonio Signorini who soon recognized Grioli to have an exceptional aptitude for research.

Einaudi and Signorini introduced the young Grioli to Mauro Picone who was the founder and director of the Istituto Nazionale per le Applicazioni del Calcolo (INAC) of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) in Rome. In 1938 Grioli was called for an interview by Picone and immediately took...
