ABSTRACT

The Count Paul Ballada de Saint Robert (1815-1888) was an Italian scientist and important promoter of scientific culture, he succeeded in combining pure and applied science, art and social interests into one of the most elevated synthesis. Based on previous works published at the SISFA 2012 (Maffioli & Medici, 2013: pp. 313-319; Medici & Maffioli, 2013: pp. 329-336) in this paper we propose two of his many writings as demonstration of interdisciplinary of his studies: the first part is about the conclusions of Saint Robert concerning the retreat of glaciers, while the second part is about the Saint Robert scientific approach and explanation of the true meaning of the verses 22.24 of the I chant of Dante’s Purgatory.
