[Autom. eng. transl.] The Convention intends to revisit the exceptional figure of Quintino Sella in his various roles as statesman, scientist, technologist, high-culture personalities and great civil ethics who contributed to the Italian national unification and to the institutional configuration of Rome as the capital of the new State. It is rare in the history of the 150 years of the Italian State to find a personality who, starting from a rigorous scientific mentality, has been able to put the same at the institutional service of the new Nation, crowning his work also with the re-establishment of the Accademia dei Lincei. The one that Sella wished to reunite with the ideals of the first founders who at the beginning of the 17th century promoted the emergence of the new science above all through the work of Prince Federico Cesi and the genius of Galileo Galilei. With this celebration the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei is about to solemnly conclude its events dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy ideally started already in February 2010 with the Conference at our Academy of the President of the Republic, Giorgio Napolitano, on theme Towards the 150th anniversary of united Italy: between historical reflection and new reasons for shared commitment.
