Italian mathematician, astronomer and military architect

Del Monte dealed in his major work with mechanics of the movement of critical understandings of Aristotle and the Peripatetic school. On the threshold of modern science standing, he attempted a theoretical analysis of simple machines (the so-called mechanical powers) and went to the application of the principle of virtual velocity deserves. Del Monte was of the opinion that the technical application of machinery is an act against nature, a outwitting nature. He also said that one can not operate as an abstract and decoupled from the practical application of science mechanics. His interests were varied, he also dealt with astronomy, Perspective and mathematical instruments.
