I cannot be 100% sure of course, but I think that source might be incorrect.
According to several other sources, including the original files from the Senate of Italy linked below (Pullé was also a senator of the Kingdom of Italy), Pullé was first "Full professor of Sanskrit and Comparative history of the classical languages" in Padua from June 3rd 1886 to 1889; then "Full professor of Sanskrit" in Pisa only for a few months, starting June 20th 1889; and eventually "Full professor of Indo-European Philology" in Bologna from October 23rd 1899 to 1925.
In fact, he established the "Gabinetto di Glottologia Sperimentale" (later renamed "Istituto di Glottologia", then "Dipartimento di Studi Linguistici e Orientali" and currently "Dipartimento di Storia, Culture e Civiltà") in Bologna already in 1902.

>> If somebody knows an obituary notice on P.E. Dumont, I would be interested by the reference or a copy. Presently, beside his Indological writings and a few family archives, I only have the reference to an obituary published in the Baltimore Sun (or The Sun, Baltimore) on the 10th of December 1968 (but no copy of it). Any living testimony would be also appreciated.

>>> Dear Christophe,
>>> if I am not mistaken, from 1899 to 1925 it was Francesco Lorenzo Pullé who was in charge of "Indo-European Philology" at the University of Bologna. A former student of Angelo De Gubernatis in Florence, Pullé had also studied with Albrecht Weber and Heinrich Kiepert in Berlin.
>>> He counted among his own students in Bologna several noteworthy scholars such as Luigi Suali, Ambrogio Ballini and Ferdinando Belloni Filippi.
