Luigi Aloysius Colla

Luigi Aloysius Colla (1766-1848) was an Italian botanist of the late 18th and early 19th Centuries. He was a member of the Provisional Government of Savoy from December 12 1798 to April 2 1799, taking his turn as chairman of the government in rotation for a ten-day term. In 1820 Colla described two species, "Musa balbisiana" and "Musa acuminata", that are the basis for almost all cultivated bananas. Cholla was a member of the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences.
