title RIASSUNTO /title

Felice Fontana fece costruire dall'officina del Reale Museo Fiorentino di Fisica e Storia Naturale due strumenti che si dice ch'egli abbia disegnato. Erano un barometro a bilancia, ossia un barometro a pesi, e un termometro organico di grande sensibilit.

Tali strumenti furono visti e descritti da un visitatore, l'Argand, e menzionati in una lettera di Fontana ad un amico. Sembra che Fontana abbia preso il disegno del barometro da Richmann di San Pietroburgo senza citare l'autore. Il disegno del termometro era suo proprio. Successivi inventari del Museo catalogano soltanto il barometro, con l'annotazione in cattive condizioni .
