Abstract

Riccardo Felici (1819-1902) was Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Pisa from 1859 to 1893. However his main scientific contributions go back to the Fifties of the XIX century, when he studied the electromagnetic induction phenomena both from an experimental and a theoretical point of view. His formulation was very rigorous, probably the best of his time, and it was quite appreciated also by J.C. Maxwell. His school of physics was the most important and influential in Italy for the best part of the XIX century, and he gave also a substantial contribution to the formation of the Italian Physics community, especially through his direction of the journal Il Nuovo Cimento and his participation in founding the Italian Physics Society.
