He was entrusted with the care of his younger brother on the death of his father and then moved to teach Maths at the university of Padua, another famous university, that still exists in the Veneto.
Here he taught geometry, astronomy and mechanics, up to 1610, were he made many discoveries in applied science and astronomy.
