"Vincenzo Brunacci"

Born in 1768 in Florence, Italy. Studied medicine, astronomy and mathematics in Pisa. Twenty years old started teaching mathematics at the Navy Institute of Leghorn. 33 years old moved to the University of Pavia with the office of professor of infinitesimal calculus and became its dean. Brunacci believed that Lagrange's approach, developed in the "Théorie des fonctions analytiques", was the correct one and that the infinitesimal concept was to be banned from analysis and mechanics. In Brunacci's university teaching infinitesimal calculus differently from Lagrange's principles was even prohibited as a rule. Died at age of 50 in Pavia.
