The Academy of Sciences of Turin was founded in 1783, with Royal Patents, by King Vittorio Amedeo III. This act is the culmination of a process that began with the birth, in 1757, a scientific society of a private character, which grew from mathematics, mechanics and physics, initiated by Count Giuseppe Angelo Saluzzo and Giovanni Cigna Louis Lagrange.In 1801 with Napoleon, the Academy of Sciences was reformed and divided into two distinct classes, for the humanistic and the scientific division still in force.Currently the Academy, in addition to domestic scientific meetings held in the month in which the members present the results of their research, organizes conferences, seminars and events, including international, of both a specialist and the general public. Each year awards are also given high-level scientific, national and international.The Academy has a library which was formed in the eighteenth and nineteenth century collecting the best of scientific and humanistic age. Currently, mainly because of the great specialization of the sciences, the library has had a much smaller increase in terms of books, but has been enriched thanks to intensive periodic reports required by our institution with scientific academies and other research institutions and exchanges that are achieved. The library catalog is fully computerized and available on Librinlinea, the bibliographic information and a Loan Service of the Piedmont region.The historical archives of the Academy is one of the most important Piedmontese archives and you will retain documents and records produced by the Academy of activity during two centuries, the original manuscripts of scientific research of men like Louis Lagrange, Giovanni Plana, Amedeo Avogadro and other scientists ; cards belonging to members or as the Count Frederick Sclopis Bernardino Drovetti, the creator of the original nucleus of the rich collection of the Egyptian Museum in Turin, with patents on color plates (over three hundred machines), witnessed the positive contribution that the Academy has given the process of industrialization in the country, from Piedmont took its first steps; remarkable correspondence of importance to the illustrious names of the senders and recipients and for the interest of the topics covered, and parchments from different dates and various subjects.
