Life[ edit ] Born in Lecco , Stoppani studied theology and became a priest in the order of the Rosminians. He was ordained in , a year of turmoil with the Siege of Milan.
During this siege, the Five Days of Milan , he became a hero for his role in the use of hot air balloons to send messages out of the besieged city. Along with Vincenzo Guglielmini, he ensured that the balloons could move over the walls of the city from the Seminario Maggiore di Porta Orientale and carry messages to rally the Italians against the Austrian Empire.
It presents, by means of 32 didactic, scientific conversations supposedly in front of a fireplace, ideas and concepts from the natural sciences, in language accessible to the average 19th-century reader. It was so popular that it went into editions by and was a textbook in schools. It deals especially with geological curiosities and the beauty of the Italian landscape. He commented on Italians who "know almost nothing about the natural beauty of our country; yet take delight when someone calls it a garden" and that the English fall in love with just one thing and devote their energies, emotions, and life to arrive dead or alive at the summit of mountains.
His introduction to natural history declared that "man should never disappear from nature, nor should nature disappear from man". He promoted the idea that Catholics needed to learn science and that the bible was to be interpreted rather than taken literally.
In a later edition of Man and Nature published as The Earth as Modified by Human Action in , Marsh noted:  In a former chapter I spoke of the influence of human action on the surface of the globe as immensely superior in degree to that exerted by brute animals, if not essentially different from it in kind.
The eminent Italian geologist, Stoppani, goes further than I had ventured to do, and treats the action of man as a new physical element altogether sui generis. According to him, the existence of man constitutes a geological period which he designates as the Anthropozoic era.
The idea of a new geological epoch, the anthropocene , was proposed in by Paul Crutzen and Eugene Stoermer.
