This paper comments the content and methodology of an article published in 1907 by Rodolfo Benini, an Italian statistician active at the beginning o last century, that is credited by Carl F. Christ (A.E.R., 1985)to have been the first to use multiple regression as an instrument of applied demand ananysis. The original calculations are replicated the comments of Benini are reinterpreted in the light of modern theory. The result of the investigation confirm that Benini can indeed be considered one of the founders of modern econometrics.
