The article discusses the life and works of Giuseppe Pella, a competent, cultivated statesman and head of the government of Italian Republic. At the cost of great sacrifices, parents found the means and the time to let Pella get some elementary schooling. Giuspin worked both by day and by night at his studies, the peasant boy became a bookkeeper, and that was the first step upward. In September, 1946, on behalf of the Christian Democratic Party, he successfully acted as umpire in a serious quarrel between supporters in the government of free enterprise and backers of a planned economy. Pella was made an under-secretary in the cabinet, then the Minister of Finance. Since then Pella has served as Italy's representative on many international committees, and has won not only a world reputation but also skill in dealing with world problems.
