In his introduction to the work on Ricardo, Sraffa used to say that he had had to follow Dobb, because when Dobb found himself in front of a difficult problem he would temporarily put it aside and go on. Sraffa instead would stop until he had resolved it. His critical principles did not stop him completing the book on Ricardo, however; a book noted for its scholarly perfection and depth of analysis. Yet perhaps the labour behind the book still remains underestimated. Unending was the research of texts and the verification of those facts which could help reconstruct the life of Ricardo; and the effort to command an understanding of the social and cultural life of Great Britain and the continent at that time, in order to provide a complete picture of the world which Ricardo inhabited.

The board of examiners was also the same each time. Its chairman was Giampietro Chironi, professor of civil rights who also taught Civil Rights Institutions. Although a disciple of formalist method and a virtual stranger to that ‘socialism of the professors’, Chironi was concerned enough about civil society and the social question to have been given political appointments alongside his academic role.
A committed liberal, Prato—confirming the multiplicity of positions that existed under the liberal flag—also flirted with nationalism, then fascism, and collaborated, when Piero was no longer a student, with the political-theoretical journal of Mussolini, Gerarchia (in the good company of Croce and Gentile), though in terms of economic thought he would never be near fascism. Perhaps more than the liberal culture, Prato was influenced by a positivist education, in particular in his way of teaching economic history, his discipline of choice.
