Gaetano Rossi, not to be confused with the Italian librettist, was an 18th-century Italian mathematician and lawyer who lived and worked in London. While there, he published a mathematics treatise filled with geometric problems and solutions. Curiously, the confusion with the author is extensive; even scholarly research points that this work was written by the librettist given that it helps makes sense of the mathematical errors and imperfections in this work. (Morgan, p.231).
