Abstract

Guido Fubini (Venice 1879–New York 1943), one of the outstanding mathematicians of the past century, spent thirty years of his life in Turin, teaching in the School of Engineering, until the racial laws enacted by the Fascist government in 1938 expelled him from a community of which he had been one of the most prestigious members, with the enthusiasm and the energy which he put into all his endeavours.
