Between Pavia and Brescia: Luigi Porta (1800-1875)

Alessandro Porro, Antonia Francesca Franchini


The authors present two records from the Ateneo di Brescia, about Luigi Porta (1800-1875), surgeon at Pavia University (1832-1875). They were written by Bartolomeo Gualla (1810-1870), Portas student and surgeon in Brescia. A manuscript concerning Portas lessons on surgery, written by Martino Tommasi, student at Pavia in 1844, and other records concerning another student and surgeon, Antonio Rota (1838-1897), are presented too. All these records allow us to define precisely some aspect of Portas bioergography, and advance some problem concerning history of Pavias surgical milieu in 19th  century.
