<title> SUMMARY </title>This essay, based on unpublished material, is the first biographical sketch of Giuseppe Morosi (1772-1840), the "mechanic": Educated in Pisa and Florence, he was exiled in 1799 to Paris, where he encountered important inventions in the field of mechanical engineering and manufacturing. Returning to Milan in 1801, he used his specialized knowledge of the textile industry as administrator and training supervisor in the first Lombard factories. Acutely aware of the importance of technical education, he travelled abroad in order to study manufacturing techniques and buy machinery. A Hapsbourg administrator after 1814, he was widely known in the Lombardo-Veneto and in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, where he retired in 1833, maintaining those contacts with Tuscan scientists he had never lost.
