The multifaceted and intelligent scientist, not an ordinary person, gave prestige to the city of the Straits, and Messina, grateful, did not forget him.

Born from the collaboration of three passionate researchers, the book takes place between different chapters that delve into events relevant to the topic in question, always placing at the center the history of ichthyology, one of the oldest branches of marine biology.

Francesco Morulico’s work can therefore be considered a milestone in ichthyology, because he paid attention scientifically to what before him was considered a mere nutritional approach.
