Italian mathematician who graduated at the University of Bologna in 1919, where he later worked on a freelance basis as teaching assistant and professor of History of Mathematics. From 1925 he taught analytical geometry at the Naval Academy in Livorno. Agostini also held - on assignment - several lectures at the University of Pisa. He dealt mainly with the history of mathematics following the principles of his own teacher, Ettore Bortolotti, emphasizing the assessment of the facts more than their synthesis.
His studies on Pietro Mengoli and the origins of the theory of limits are particularly worth mentioning.
He died on 27 August 1958, aged 66, in Livorno.
