Abstract: As it is well-known, the year 2005 has been the centenary of the -annusmirabilis- 1905 during which Albert Einstein published four fundamentalpapers of his. But already in 1979, for the centenary of Einstein-s birth, theworld celebrated his monumantal work. In Italy too, there appeared scientificbooks, and many semi-popularization or popularization articles. The presentpaper represents a talk delivered in Italian, at the invitation of the NobelFoundation Sanremo, IM; Italy, in time for its publication in 1979. Thisarticle has been however reprinted, much more recently, in 2002, by the -CentroDIEA-, Faculty of Engineering, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy and itssource-file, in html, has been prepared with DIEA-s collaboration. We presenthere a description of the human, philosophycal and scientific background,starting from which Einstein produced his amazing results: Indeed, we try toshow why Einstein-s writings today are still so important not only for purephysics and technology!, but also for our epistemological understanding ofthe procedures followed by science, and by our own mind, in their development,as well as for our philosophical views about the world we live in; withoutforgetting the teachings that come or should come from Einstein-s life andclaims for modern pedagogy.
