Author’s abstract: Ercole Corazzi (1673–1726), a leading figure in the eighteenth-century Italian mathematical milieu, held the chair of Algebra at Bologna University from 1710 on and taught military architecture in the new Institute of Science founded by Luigi Ferdinando Marsili. In 1720, he was summoned by Vittorio Amedo II to work on the important reform of the University of Turin. Many unedited works by Corazzi from various Italian libraries have been the subject of our study, which concludes with an appendix of his published works and a list of his manuscripts preserved in the University of Bologna, as well as an overview of his correspondence.
