Scenes from the life of Beppo Levi

On the occasion of the 140th anniversary of the birth of the famous Italian mathematician Beppo Levi (1875-1961), we publish an interview with his daughter Emilia. We also recall his brother Eugenio Elia Levi, a well-known and brilliant mathematician whose life was cut short at the front during World War I. A brief outline of Beppo Levi's life is followed by an introduction to a letter that he wrote to the periodical Israel in 1919, in part regarding the foundation of the state of Israel. Finally, we publish an English translation of the letter in its entirety.
