The cycle of Lectures “Lectiones Commandinianae” was founded (2007) in honour of the 
famous Italian mathematician Federico Commandino (Urbino 1509-1575). Well
known 
are his mathematical texts and his activity of editing translations of ancient books of mathema-tics. His production includes translations
with commentaries of Archimedes, Ptolemy, Euclid, Aristarchus, Pappus, Apollonius, Eutocius, Heron and Serenus. 
The Lectiones Commandinianae are organized by "SYNERGIA Research Group in Logic, Language, Cognition, History and Philosophy of Sciences", University of Urbino “Carlo Bo”. 
Given by scholars of international prominence, the lectures are intended to provide a general audience with an overview of some of the modern developments of history and philosophy of sciences.
