General contextTravagino was in correspondence with Robert Boyle (FRS 1660) and Henry Oldenburg (FRS 1663), in particular regarding a proposed new way of utilising experimental philosophy for chemical-medical purposes. They also corresponded on blood transfusion experiments. His work on the 1667 Dubrovnik earthquake focused partly on the movement of water during such an event. Later in his life, he became involved in experiments of an alchemical nature as well.
