title SUMMARY /title

The following letters aim to add a chapter to the studies about Guido Grandi (1671-1742), illustrating his relationship with Odoardo Corsini (1702-1765), historian and mathematician of the Scolopian fathers. Grandi, already a well known mathematician, received from the young Corsini an attempt at the squaring of the circle and kindly read it, pointing out its mistake. Eleven years later, Corsini submitted him another mathematical problem and its solution, which Grandi himself and other mathematicians had already discovered.
