Libero Martoni, director of the paediatric clinic in Bologna, brought the study of paediatrics to Italy and through an accurate and precise translation, introduced him to Italian paediatricians. Since 1955, the year of the first Italian translation, it has remained to today the fundamental text of paediatrics. It brought a remarkable contribution to the field of puericulture, hepatology and oncohematolgy, both in research and in manuals.
