Abstract: Analytic foliations in the 2-dimensional complex projective space with algebraic invariant curves are studied when the holonomy groups of these curves are solvable. It is shown that such a condition leads to the existence of a Liouville type first integral, and, under ``generic'' extra conditions, it is proven that these foliations can be defined by Bernoulli equations.
