He gave milestone contributions in the knowledge of cardiac innervationwith the discovery of the “Terni column”, a preganglionic autonomous nervous center. Due to “racial laws” introduced in Italy in 1938 by the Fascist government, he, being Jewish, was expelled from the University of Padua like many others from Italian universities. At the end of the 2nd World War, he was reinstated to his chair of Anatomy, however, having belonged to the Fascist party, hewas dismissed from the Lincei Academy.
