Prof. Ferdinando Auricchio has been elected National Member of the Accademia Nazionale delle Scienze.

The Accademia Nazionale delle Scienze, known as “Accademia dei Quaranta” (the only national scientific academy continuously operating since its foundation), was founded in 1782 on the initiative of the mathematician and hydraulic engineer Antonio M. Lorgna, and had among its founding members the forty most illustrious scientists from all over Italy, including Lazzaro Spallanzani, Alessandro Volta, Lodovico de Lagrange, Ruggero Giuseppe Boscovich: hence the current name of “Società dei Quaranta” (today “Accademia dei XL”).
