<title> RIASSUNTO </title>La pietra di Bologna fu nel XVII e XVIII secolo uno dei più bei regali che uno scienziato potesse ricevere. Il suo potere di emanare luce nell'oscurità era in quell'epoca un fenomeno difficile da spiegare. Come tante altre «curiosità naturali» il fosforo diventò un esempio spirituale delle diverse teorie della luce e della materia. Alchimisti, chimici, cartesiani e newtoniani interpretarono la fosforescenza della pietra di Bologna con i loro diversissimi modelli esplicativi. In particolar modo all'Accademia delle Scienze di Bologna il fosforo costituì nel XVIII secolo un eccellente esempio della diffusione del newtonianesimo e nello stesso tempo del metodo sperimentale a cui si dovevano sottoporre tutte le teorie scientifiche.
