Between 1922 and 1931 Emilio Betti (1890-1968) wrote some letters, until today unreleased, to a prominent scholar of Ecclesiastical law, Mario Falco (1884-1943). He explained some issues concerning himself and his career. First, he tried to involve Mario Falco, who was full professor there, in the effort of transferring to the University of Parma, coming from the University of Messina. Later, they were colleagues at the newly established University of Milan and Betti asked Falco for a review to be published on one of the main Italian trade law journal. The matter was about some ideas about inheritance law, which – as Emilio Betti claimed – were wrongly ascribed to a young scholar, Francesco Santoro-Passarelli, instead to himself.
