The private library of Francesco d’Aguirre, man of letters and book-collector - This article concerns the Sicilian jurist Francesco d’Aguirre (1682-1745), a prominent figure of the early eighteenth century. A pupil of Gravina in Roma, he played a key role in university reform in Turin under Victor Amadeus II, and was later a leading member of the Giunta del censimento established by Charles VI in Milan. Turchetti examines a catalogue of part of his library (which was sold by his son Vittorio after his death) printed by Antonio Agnelli in 1753 and kept in the Biblioteca Trivulziana in Milan. Tha authoress also examines the correspondence exchange by Aguirre with some of the leading intellectuals of his time, such as Muratori, Lama, Maffei, Metastasio, Cmpailla. These letters illustratee d’Aguirre’s cultural interests and throw light on the provenance of some of the books included in the catalogue
