The Central Archives of Turin University preserve many personal fonds of alumni and professors. This paper provides a survey of these private archives, focusing on Enrico Castelnuovo’s Papers. During his sixty-year career as professor at the Universities of Lausanne and Turin, and at the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa, the historian of art criticism Enrico Castelnuovo (1929-2014) encouraged the renewal of the discipline, outlining new clues deduced from other subjects, such as Geography and Social History. The essay describes the overall structure and consistency of Castelnuovo’s fonds, private library and photo archive, acquired in 2016.
