In the continent at East and little known: Russian Fellows of the Gioenia Academy in the 19th century
A banker, a doctor, a chemistry professor, a general, a consul
The events that bind the five Russian fellows of the nineteenth century to the Gioenia Academy of Catania are described. The curiosity to have a close-up picture of them has been much, but scientific and political literature in Europe is not very rich in information on the personality aggregated to the Gioenia Academy in the first twenty-five years of its existence. Even their scientific contribution to the cultural life of the Academy is almost nil, except for an article by Professor Hasshaghen on the geognostic description of the Crimea.
