<title> SUMMARY </title>The principal aim of this study is to reconstruct the configuration Experimental Physics assumed in Pavia, from the viewpoints of both research and teaching, before Volta's arrival in 1778. Attention will be devoted, in particular, to the work of Carlo Barletti, chair professor in Experimental Physics at Pavia from 1773 to 1778, a little-studied figure, often considered of modest scientific value compared to Volta. A careful interpretation of the documents and events of science history in Pavia in the second half of the XVIII century, will lead us to describe a less simplistic and definitely more complex picture, revealing Barletti's major role in forming the Physics Laboratory in 1776, and in the methodological approach given to teaching Experimental Physics. The essay also analyses relations between Barletti and Volta, both before and after the arrival of the latter to Pavia.
