Francesco Saverio Nitti (1868-1953). "Economist at Naples University, who advocated a high-wage economy and government intervention, particularly to encourage the industrialization of the South. Elected as a radical to parliament, he held various ministerial posts and was Prime Minister for a troubled year in 1919-20. He was forced into exile during the Fascist period, which he spent mostly in Paris." - The Oxford Companion to Italian Literature.
