Acknowledgments:
Several of the translations were done in cooperation with L.
Mihich,
to whom goes my gratitude for the great patience shown in these years.
Of paramount interest were the discussions which occurred between David
Hilbert, Felix
Klein and Emmy Noether during the years 1915-1918 on the mathematical
structure and on the physical meaning of the so
called general theory of relativity. Here are four quite relevant
papers, in their Italian translation (pdf):
David Hilbert "Die Grundlagen der
Physik I"
(1915),
David Hilbert, "Die Grundlagen der
Physik II" (1916),
Felix Klein, "Zu Hilberts erster Note
über die Grundlagen der Physik" (1918),
Emmy Noether, "Invariante
Variationsprobleme" (1918).
Due to the suggestion and to the continuous support of G. Gallavotti,
many of these translations have been collected in the
book
"Quando la Fisica parlava tedesco (alcune memorie di un'epoca)",
published
by G.N.F.M.. The whole book (in Postscript) can be found here,
while
single
parts
can
be
obtained
through
this
index.
This page exists thanks to the advice of D.-E.
Liebscher; his help to me extends however far beyond the limits of
this home page.
The great contribution of ArXiv
to
the

of
physical
knowledge
is
gratefully
acknowledged.
Together with A. Loinger it has been
noticed that important papers dealing with fundamental problems, e. g.
of general
relativity, are nearly forgotten by
present day's theoreticians, mainly due to the language in which they
were
originally
written. It has been availed of the
hospitality provided by ArXiv for recalling the attention on:
