In the doctoral work I completed last October, I analyzed for the first time in a comprehensive manner the role of the Italian physicist Franco Selleri (1936-2013) in the fields of particle physics, foundations of quantum mechanics and foundations of the theory of relativity during the years 1960-2010. Having had access to his unpublished archives, I found a considerable amount of contributions, handwritten notebooks and correspondence with scientists and Nobel laureates around the world. It emerged the deep connection between Selleri’s research and historical and philosophical approach, and the contemporary socio-political environment in which he worked. All the results of this research as well as the historiographic followed approach will be shown here. The complete bibliography of all his scientific works will also be presented, as well as a series of annexes with all his writings, the conferences in which he participated and some of the above-mentioned correspondence.

All references are included in:
