Archives for the History of Malaria

Margherita Bettini Prosperi


Archives for the history of malaria and malariology in Italy have been rediscovered in the recent past. The Sezione di Storia della Medicina at Rome University conserves many different personal and institutional archives closely or loosely related to this topic. Many of them had been originally gathered and kept at the Istituto di Igiene at Rome University. Among them the Fondo Casini, of the 20th century, documenting the activity of public institutions such as the Società per gli Studi della Malaria and the Scuola Superiore di Malariologia; archives of the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, such as the Fondo Bignami, Celli; and many others.
