    The aim of this paper is to study G. Fano‚Äôs (1871-1952) personal collection of volumes and offprints, currently preserved in the Special Mathematical Library ‚ÄúG. Peano‚ÄĚ of the University of Turin. This type of investigation allows to examine some aspects connected to Fano‚Äôs international relationships, as well as to give a glimpse of his personal trajectory. Furthermore, the analysis performed through the digital humanities software Palladio provides an interesting overview on the cultural roots of his research activity. Finally, following the works on C. Segre‚Äôs and A. Terracini‚Äôs library heritages, this case-study adds another piece to the reconstruction of the cultural heritage of the Italian School of algebraic geometry

    In this paper we analyze A. Terracini’s (1889-1968) library heritage (his personal library and miscellany), which is now kept in Turin and in Perugia, with the help of the digital humanities software Palladio. This historiographical perspective allows to focus on the dynamics of circulation of mathematical knowledge and it promotes the highlight of some lesser-known aspects of Terracini’s biographical and professional trajectory
