Italy after - the war depends upon ,th e
solution .of. three great , engineering
problems, in the opinion of Professor
Luli Luiggi, president jot the - Italian'
Society of ; Civil ' Engineers. The3e
three problems," he, stated' to cn ad

clanation 'of marsh lands, the irriga
tion of semi-arid tracts; and the more
