Giuseppe Peano (1858 - 1932) Italian mathematician, linguist and author, perhaps best known for the Peano curve.
Born in Piedmont, Peano studied at the university in Turin. After graduating, Peano ghostwrote a calculus textbook for Angelo Genocchi. In his first book published under his own name, Peano introduced our modern symbols for set union and set intersection. Work on a Formulario, a comprehensive encyclopedia of mathematical formulas, led him to invent a new language in which he sought to do for Latin what Ludwig Zamenhof was trying to do with Esperanto. The final edition of Formulario was written in the language he invented.
