Carli, Giovanni Rinaldo, writer on antiquities and economics, was born in 1720 at Capo d'Istria. While still young he was appointed to the chair of astronomy at Venice, subsequently resigning to devote himself to antiquarian research and political economy. On the latter subject his leading works were Delle Monete, e della instituzione delle Zecche d'ltalia, and Ragionamento sopra i Bilanci economici delle Nazioni. The Emperor Joseph, recognising Carli's merits, appointed him president of the Council of Commerce at Milan. In addition to those named he wrote numerous other treatises. He died in 1795.
