Giovanni Giorgi (27 November 1871 - 19 August 1950) was an electrical engineer who invented the Giorgi system of measurement, the precursor to the International System (SI).

Giorgi was born in Lucca and studied engineering at the Institute of Technology of Rome, and was the director of the Technology Office of Rome between 1906 and 1923. Lucca is a city in Tuscany, northern central Italy, situated on the river Serchio in a fertile plain near (but not on the Ligurian Sea He also taught at the University of Rome between 1913 and 1939. Sapienza University of Rome ( Italian Sapienza Università di Roma) is a coeducational autonomous state university in Rome, Italy
Toward the end of the 19th century, after James Clerk Maxwell's discoveries, it was clear that electric measurements could not be explained in terms of the three fundamental units of length, mass and time. The 19th century of the Common Era began on January 1, 1801 and ended on December 31, 1900, according to the Gregorian calendar James Clerk Maxwell (13 June 1831 &ndash 5 November 1879 was a Scottish mathematician and theoretical physicist. Therefore, in 1901, Giorgi proposed to the AEI (Associazione Elettrotecnica Italiana) a new system that had as fundamental units the metre, the kilogram, the second and a fourth unit to be chosen from the units of electrotechnology. Year 1901 ( MCMI) was a Common year starting on Tuesday (link will display calendar of the Gregorian calendar (or a Common year starting The metre or meter is a unit of Length. It is the basic unit of Length in the Metric system and in the International The second ( SI symbol s) sometimes abbreviated sec, is the name of a unit of Time, and is the International System of Units
In 1935 this was adopted by the IEC as the Giorgi system, also known as MKSΩ, because the fourth fundamental unit was that of electrical resistance, the ohm. Year 1935 ( MCMXXXV) was a Common year starting on Tuesday (link will display full calendar of the Gregorian calendar. Electrical resistance is a ratio of the degree to which an object opposes an Electric current through it measured in Ohms Its reciprocal quantity is The ohm (symbol Ω) is the SI unit of Electrical impedance or in the Direct current case Electrical resistance, In 1960, at the 11th General Conference of Weights and Measures, the SI (International System) was adopted, which was based on seven fundamental units: metre, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole and candela. Year 1960 ( MCMLX) was a Leap year starting on Friday (link will display full calendar of the Gregorian calendar. The General Conference on Weights and Measures is the English name of the Conférence générale des poids et mesures ( CGPM, never GCWM The metre or meter is a unit of Length. It is the basic unit of Length in the Metric system and in the International The second ( SI symbol s) sometimes abbreviated sec, is the name of a unit of Time, and is the International System of Units The ampere, in practice often shortened to amp, (symbol A is a unit of Electric current, or amount of Electric charge per second The kelvin (symbol K) is a unit increment of Temperature and is one of the seven SI base units The Kelvin scale is a thermodynamic The mole (symbol mol) is a unit of Amount of substance: it is an SI base unit, and almost the only unit to be used to measure this The candela (kanˈdɛlə /-ˈdiːlə/ symbol cd) is the SI base unit of Luminous intensity; that is power emitted by a light source in a particular
Giorgi died in Castiglioncello, Livorno at the age of 79. Castiglioncello is a Frazione of the Comune of Rosignano Marittimo, in the Province of Livorno, Tuscany, "Leghorn" redirects here For the breed of chicken see Leghorn chicken.
