Interplay between local and international journals: The case of Sicily, 1880–1920

Abstract : In 1884, Giovan Battista Guccia founded first the Circolo Matematico di Palermo and then some years later its journal, the Rendiconti del Circolo Matematico di Palermo. Although historians of mathematics have published a number of works on the Circolo and the Rendiconti, there are very few systematic studies on mathematics in Sicilian periodicals. In our paper, we shall investigate the relationships between the “international” Rendiconti and the “local” proceedings published by the Sicilian academies located in Catania, Messina, and Palermo. What is the image of mathematics that emerges from these journals? What is the presence of Sicilian mathematicians among the authors in the different cases? May we recognize a Sicilian dynamics in mathematics and, if so, in what sense?
