Informations and abstract

Keywords: Theodor Mommsen, Bernardino Biondelli, Luigi Riva, Ercole Ferrario, Varese.

Based on what the press reported at the time and on the information recovered from Ercole Ferrario’s private archive, the essay is aimed at considering Theodor Mommsen’s inspections throughout Varese’s area, which took place during spring in 1869 and in 1871 while he was composing the fifth volume of Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum.

Three unpublished letters to Bernardino Biondelli, recently discovered in Biblioteca Ambrosiana of Milan, are transcribed
