With him we introduce the topic of complex analysis which we touched upon when discussing Pincherle. His brother45 Beppo (1875–1961) was also a mathematician and at the same time as Vitali engaged in a brief controversy with H. Lebesgue regarding the cogency of some proofs by the latter. Nevertheless, he would mainly concentrate his efforts on algebraic geometry, number theory, logic and the foundations of geometry. In the complex analysis, Eugenio Elia’s research focused on the singular point sets of a holomorphic function of several variables.

The golden age of Italian Mathematics actually ended with World War I. Some warning signals could have been seen before, perhaps. These were not just isolated and specific events, such as the controversy between Enriques and Croce where because of 1 2 Castelnuovo had married one of Enriques’ sisters. The correspondence is reproduced in P. Nastasi, R. Tazzioli, Calendario della corrispondenza di Tullio Levi-Civita (1873–1941) con appendici di documenti inediti, Palermo, Quaderni Pristem, No. 8 (1999), pp.

We have already mentioned how Peano went on to study logic after embarking on his rigorist struggle and his search for extreme precision in definitions and proofs, also for teaching purposes. Around him and his publishing plans and the Rivista di Matematica (founded in 1891), a school of young and combative scholars would rapidly coalesce. Their presence would enliven many conferences which were still an innovation at the beginning of the century. Bertrand Russell would remember his meeting with Peano at the International Philosophy Congress in Paris in 1900 as being a particularly significant event for the formulation of his program.
