Giuseppe Levi, My Grandfather

Carlo Ginzburg


In the pages that follow, I will sketch out a brief memory of my grandfather,
the scientist Giuseppe Levi. During my childhood, he influenced my
perception of science as an adventurous journey. I will focus my attention
on his passion, as well as his respect for data, typical of a scientist who was
still deeply indebted to the positivist legacy. This was an attitude foreign to
any form of naiveté, and is still valid today.
