This book is a collection of essays that explore the history of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Florence through its many transformations over the years and through many of its outstanding faculty members. These scientists lived, worked, and many had family roots, in Florence. They “did chemistry” long before chemistry took form as an academic discipline and they left a legacy of forms and customs, to say nothing of a remarkable body of research, that propelled the department to world-class status in the 20th century.
