Abstract: In the second half of the eighteenth century, earthquakes had become a very controversial subject. An on-going debate about what exactly it was that caused earthquakes to happen had split the international scientific community into the two warring factions of the Firists and the Electricists. This is the story of a Sienese Electricist and his unwitting contribution to the building up of the Italian earthquake catalogue.
