Italian teacher and politician, who was a supporter of genetic improvement of crops through "genealogical selection", which was applied to existing crops. His rival was Nazareno Strampelli, a supporter of hybridization. Between the two scholars a debate arose - with respectful and civil tones - that lasted until the 1920s. In 1940 Todaro admitted the successes of Strampelli with great scientific and intellectual honesty. Todaro died in Rome on 10 January 1950.
