Chapter Summary

Mario Emanuele Levi, who defined himself as an Italian citizen of Jewish race, was born on 14 December 1893 to Alessandro Levi and Emma Levi of Genoa. His application letter requested recognition of his merits to the Fatherland. Indeed, Mario Levi was decorated with the Cross of War for his military service during the Great War, which interrupted his studies at the Politecnico of Milan. After the war, he graduated and worked as an engineer for the State Railways and later for the Genoese company Odero Terni Orlando, which supplied engines to the Royal Navy. The Jesuit archbishop of Genoa, Cardinal Pietro Boetto, strongly recommended Levi's application to Cardinal Luigi Maglione of the Vatican Secretariat of State, who forwarded the request to Tacchi Venturi. The Jesuit solicited Undersecretary Buffarini to expedite Levi's application, which remained unprocessed for several months.
