Remembering Rodolfo Fattovich

Dear Colleagues,

The following message may be of interest to you. Please send your responses directly to the organizers.


Dear Colleagues,

We are glad to inform you that on 25 September (with a possible extension to the 26) an event commemorating Rodolfo Fattovich, who untimely left us, will take place in Naples. Knowing Rodolfo, we are sure that the best way to remember him will be not only to meet and to share personal memories of him, but also to discuss the topics that he investigated in his scholarly life. The event will take place at the University of Naples “L’Orientale”, where Rodolfo was teaching and conducting research for more than 40 years.

We are therefore asking to confirm your participation by July 20, and to tell us if you need support in finding an accommodation.

Further information about the schedule will be sent shortly.
If you cannot join us, but you would like to contribute to the volume in memory of Rodolfo, please just answer this message by emailing Andrea Manzo (amanzo@unior.it).

Best regards,
