Series II. Professional Activities, 1929-1987

Scope and Content Notes:

Series II has been divided into three subseries: 1. Academics and Academic Business (1929-1983), 2. Professional Organizations and Activities (1934-1986), and 3. Publishing Activities (1937-1987).

The first subseries (Academics and Academic Business) mainly concerns de Finetti's activities in the academic environment such as teaching, university politics and reform, research funding, and job applications. It also includes material on his appeal against the denied appointment to the chair of financial mathematics at the University of Trieste in 1942.

Material in the second subseries (Professional Organizations and Activities) relates largely to de Finetti's membership in professional and scientific organizations, such as the Accademia dei Lincei, his collaboration with professional journals, and his participation at various conferences.

The third subseries (Publishing Activities) features correspondence with publishers, friends, and colleagues, page proofs, drafts, reviews, offprints, and related legal material.

Series V. Theory of Teaching and School Reform, 1957-1981

Scope and Content Notes:

Series V covers two areas in which de Finetti showed great personal interest and involvement, and which extend beyond his professional activities. One of them is his interest in the theory of teaching, its application, and its improvement. The second area documents de Finetti's political and social activism and ensuing legal issues. Both areas are divided into two subseries. The first subseries is entitled Theory of Teaching and School Reform and contains typescripts, newspaper clippings, journal issues, and correspondence that illustrate de Finetti's efforts to improve science and mathematics teaching, teacher education, and school curricula. Subjects discussed are de Finetti such as Il "saper vedere" in matematica and Perchè la matematica?, de Finetti's plans for educational movies, and a project for an educational center for teachers. The second subseries is comprised under Socio-Political and Juridical Issues and holds letters, memoranda, newspaper clippings, articles, and court records. Documented are his membership in the facist party, his participation in the Movimento Politico Lavoratori (MPL), and his role as editor of the Radical Party's publication Notizie Radicali.
