<title> RIASSUNTO </title>L'articolo esamina l'influenza dell'opera mineralogica e metallurgica di Giorgio Agricola sulla chimica del diciassettesimo e diciottesimo secolo. Le ragioni di tale influenza sono sia di carattere teorico che di natura sperimentale. La riforma «umanista» della nomenclatura tecnica e la critica all'alchimia presentate da Agricola in molti dei suoi lavori, segnano l'emergere di una nuova concezione dell'ambito disciplinare della chimica. Parimenti, l'importanza dell'analisi chimica delle sostanze di natura inorganica e delle tecniche e strumenti ad essa connessi presentata nel De re metallica costituisce una delle fonti principali dell'opera di molti chimici settecenteschi, in particolare Stahl e Lavoisier. La combinazione di questi due elementi contribuirono a favorire la fortuna dell'opera di Agricola tra i chimici più innovatori dell'era moderna.
