Abstract

In the 19th century, Morelli's method, like those of Taine, Cuvier and Pierce, addressed the theme of signification and quality of signs at the origin of knowledge, inaugurated by John Locke and recently resurrected after a long ideological and political repression, with relevant implications. This topic, together with the attraction for the sharing of metaphors and protocols with the nascent forensic medicine, which the newspapers gave account to replace the stories of various atrocities, half news half literary invention, determined the extraordinary fortune of Giovanni Morelli in wide contemporary British culture.
