title SUMMARY /title

We transcribe five letters of Geminiano Montanari to Gian Domenico Cassini, the first four written from Bologna (in 1669, 1670 and 1678), the fifth from Venice (1681). Here, several subjects are discussed, among which: objections raised by someone of Bologna against the S. Petronio sundial built by Cassini and also against Montanari's behaviour towards the same Cassini, the dissatisfaction of Montanari and his wish to go to Paris, the painting of a portrait of himself to be sent this town, the quarrel with Rossetti and Montanari's admission of the rotation of the earth around the sun.
