(1791-1867) is mainly remembered today as a discoverer whose researches established and transformed a new understanding of electricity, and as a pioneer in electro-magnetism, electrochemistry, and the conceptual but non-mathematical adumbration of field theory.

, there's an association with both Michelozzo and Michaelangelo in equating the infill in the colonnade under the Economist building with the reworked corner of the Palazzo Medici, while the book ends with the assumption of Pericles' mantle.
