The reopening of the Accademia (1811) and the fifth edition of the Vocabolario (1863-1923)
The Accademia della Crusca was refounded as an independent institution in 1811, with three main goals: the revision of the Vocabolario, the preservation of the purity of the language, and the analysis of works sent to the Accademia for the literary contest declared between 1809 and 1810.
In 1812 the new Academicians were elected, and the distinction between Resident and Correspondant Academicians was introduced; in the same year Pietro Ferroni was elected President and Lorenzo Collini Secretary; simultaneously, the project for a new edition of the Vocabolario, proposed in the past by Rosso Antonio Martini and Ildefonso Fridiani, brought under consideration.
The Academicians had also attended to the final part of the entries; the preparatory works for entries from letter P to Z are held in the Historical Archive of the Accademia.
