1 Levi, hirns elf the author of an im portant work on Cattaneo, 2 reported on several initiatives which had been taken by Italian scholars since 1945 to rescue the Lombard writer and politician from relative obscurity. With some financial assistance from the City of Milan, a committee of Italian and Swiss scholars had been formed in the spring of 1946 to publish Cattaneos works, which until then had only appeared in fragmentary and uncritical 3 editions.

LeMonnier of Florence had agreed to publish the new edi tion. Meanwhile, the Lombard historian Rinaldo Caddeo was preparing with considerable pains an edition of several volumes of Cattaneos correspondence. In addition, a catalog of materials pertaining to Cat taneo and found among the Crispi papers was being prepared at the State Archives in Palermo. Abrief biography had appeared in 1945 and other works by historians, political scientists, and journalists were 4 in progress. These initiatives seemed long overdue, in view of the fact that Cattaneos contemporaries bad considered hirn a leading figure in the liberal-democratic current of the Risorgimento.

As Levi acknowledged in his article, however, these e. fforts to rescue Cattaneos work from obscurity were something more than a belated tribute to an important participant in the his tory of nineteenth century Italy.
