It was not possible to include the School of Engineering of the Univs. of Genoa and Bologna nor the School of Architecture in Venice. A list of 31 references are cited at the end, and an Appendix lists by author and institution further publications of mechanicians in Milan, Turin, Pisa, Rome and Naples. Titles are given in the original Italian with English translation following. Summaries are in English. (Author)
