Abstract

[Based on a research program in history of mechanics and some previous papers on history and epistemology of mechanics we present here a concise case–study on the use of the scale ratio in the Galilean Trattato di fortificazione (end of 16th century). We focus in particular on scientific reasonings around the scale proposed, on the figures and on the peculiar lack of effective use of the ratio in the manuscript.]
