Abstract

In this article we present the first Einstein's considerations on Mach's Principle that were published in a little note on 1912. In particular we want to suggest the correct interpretation of the most ambiguous machian
sentences and then to show, first how Einstein recognizes in Mach's considerations a fundamental Principle of the future General Theory of Relativity and second which is his first attempt in modelling the relation between inertia and gravity.
