<title> SUMMARY </title>Giovanni Bianchi (alias Iano Planco, 1693-1775), physician, scientist, scholar and versatile writer, represents the most relevant personality of the cultural milieu of Rimini (Emilia Romagna, Italy) during the XVIII century.In his palace, furnished with a rich library and a varied collection, he created a private school, in which dozens of pupils were educated.The correspondence examined in the present paper provides evidence of one of Bianchi's many exchanges of letters: in this case, with the famous physician and naturalist Antonio Cocchi, called "Mugellano" (1695-1758).This important collection of letters spans a well defined period; however, it is well known that autograph papers of Bianchi are full of reminiscences and references regarding Cocchi.
