The correspondence between Angelo Secchi and Francesco Denza offers remarkable examples of the bond between ecclesiastical institutions and the development of technical-scientific knowledge and provides interesting insights into Italian science in the second half of the 19th century. Through the exchange of innovative ideas and organizational considerations on the study of astronomy and meteorology, the correspondence allows the scientific ‘mission’ of the two clerics to shine through and demonstrates how widespread the practice of science was in the civil and ecclesiastical society of the time.
