The Story Behind The Name
When the Duke of Modena undertook negotiations with the Supreme Executive Council of the French Republic, the Abbé Venturi became Secretary to the Legation and was sent to Paris. But soon recognizing that the negotiations could not be brought to successful issue, Venturi settled down in Paris for some time in order to improve his knowledge of physics and chemistry. He there made the acquaintance of the most learned people of the age such as Cuvier, Hauy, Biot, Lalande, Monge, Laplace, and many others. During his stay in Paris, Venturi published several treatises; of these we may recall one on the movement of camphor on water, and another of great importance, “Experimental Researches on the principle of the Lateral Communication of Movement in Fluids applied to the explanation of different hydraulic phenomena.” It is the latter work which propounds and demonstrates that law of nature now known by Venturi’s name. He also published works on the researches of Leonardo da Vinci and of Galileo.
The deep respect in which Venturi was held during his stay of a year and a half in Paris resulted in his being warmly commended in a letter addressed to General Bonaparte by Lalande, Director of the Paris Observatory, who spoke of him “as one of the men most competent to bring renown to Italy and to build there useful waterworks and do good work in mathematics and physics.” In another letter to Bonaparte, Venturi is praised for his ability in the art of civil engineering and military architecture. The Abbé Venturi made use of these letters in order to frustrate the intrigues of those in his country who tried to oust him from his position at the University, and also in order to seek the protection of General Bonaparte, who received him with great kindness. Bonaparte made him a member of the Corps Legislatif and a professor at the Military School of Modena, and also appointed him Chevalier of the Legion of Honour. Subsequent to this, however, adverse political influences were the cause of Venturi’s being subjected to many vicissitudes, even to the e of imprisonment. But after the conquest of Italy the First Consul gave him a professorship at the University of Pavia, and he was entrusted also with several diplomatic missions. During this period, in addition to his other numerous duties, Venturi found time to engage in mine work and hydraulic construction. Later he was Diplomatic Agent of the Helvetic Confederation, which compelled him to study questions quite different to those to which he had devoted nearly all his previous career. He spent some twelve years in Switzerland, during which time he accomplished his difficult task in a manner that commanded the admiration and respect of all. He eventually retired in 1813, owing to failing health, and was granted by the Emperor a pension on the maximum scale. On his return to Reggio he set about the publication of a number of scientific and literary works.
Venturi died in 1822, at the age of seventy-six. As will readily be gathered from the foregoing, he was a man of remarkable talent and of extraordinary activity, which led him to study numerous questions and undertake many things. Savant, man of letters, and diplomatist, he always showed himself endowed with an observing and penetrating intellect, and with great ability in dealing with technical problems. In reflecting on the widely varied character of the many offices and functions Venturi was called upon to fill and perform, one cannot fail to be impressed by the great gifts and versatility of the man. Eminently gifted, witty, frank, loyal, and a patriot as he was, it was left for Herschel to revive his reputation and add fresh lustre to his name.
