<title> SUMMARY </title>The purpose of the present paper is the publication of the index of Giovanni Gualberto De Soria's manuscript, from the Biblioteca Labronica F. Guerrazzi in Leghorn, Raccolta di lettere di G. G. De Soria. The author emphasizes the cultural relations instaured by De Soria with the Tuscan scientific and political milieu during the decline of the Medicean dinasty, and the subsequent rule of the Lorena family. This correspondence, which covers the years 1744 to 1764, offers an important testimony for the history of scientific thought in early eighteenth century Italy, from the discussion on the most important biological theories of the time to the analysis of geological doctrines, and the discussion by De Soria of his own work in geometry.
