FRANCESCO INGx1RAMr (1772—1846), a distinguished archaeologist, fought in the French wars (1799), and afterwards devoted himself especially to the study of Etruscan antiquities. He founded a college at Fiesole and collected, though without critical insight, a mass of valuable material in his Monumenti etruschi (10 vols., 1820-1827), Galleria arterial (3 vols., 1829—1851), Pitture di vasi fittili (1831—1837), Museo etrusco chiusino (2 vols., 1833), and the incomplete Sloria della Toscana (1841—1845): these works were elaborately illustrated. His brother, GIOVANNI INGIIRAMI (1779—1851), was an astronomer of repute. He was professor of astronomy at the Institute founded by Ximenes in Florence and published beside a number of text-books Effemeridi dell' occultazione delle piccole stelle sotto la Tacna (1809—1830); Effemeridi di Venese e Glove all' use de' naviganti (1821—1824) Tavole astronomichi universali portatili (1811); Base trigonometrica misuratain Toscana (1:818); Carta topografica e geometrica della Toscana (183o).
