He then entered young Torricelli into a Jesuit College inpossibly the one in Faenza itself, to study mathematics and philosophy untilby which bzrometro his father, Gaspare, had died.

Torricelli is also famous for the discovery of the Torricelli’s trumpet also – perhaps more often – known as Gabriel’s Horn whose surface area is infinitebut whose volume is finite.

The barometer is then placed inverted on the dish full of mercury.
