preprint description
In this first paper we outline what possible historic-epistemological role might have played the work of Ulisse Dini on implicit function theory in formulating the structure of differentiable manifold, via the basic work of Hassler Whitney. A detailed historiographical recognition about this Dini's work has been done. Further methodological considerations are then made as regards history of mathematics.
