title SUMMARY /title

The piarist Odoardo Corsini (Fanano, 1702-1765) is better known as an historian, for his studies about both numismatics and chronology. Less known is his activity in the scientific field, which led him to exchange letters with many scientists of his time.

Corsini's activity in hydraulics is witnessed by booklets, not recorded in bibliographies, and by his correspondence. The article ends with the transcription of two letters by Antonio Vallisneri to Corsini, where the problem of the origin of springs is mentioned.
