[Autom. eng. transl.] The essay traces the relationship between some literati belonging to the Accademia dei Lincei and the lively cultural environment around Urban VIII. In particular we take into consideration the figures of Virginio Cesarini and Giovanni Ciampoli, lincei academics and close collaborators of Galileo, but also trusted men of Urbano VIII, who will contribute to establish and consolidate the new Galilean science in the first years of the pontificate of Maffeo Barberini. The essay also follows the exile of the Lincei provoked by the events of the condemnation of the Dialogue and the trial of 1633, showing how however in Sforza Pallavicino, a Jesuit and finally a cardinal, traces of his youthful scientific education and lincea remain.
