News Professor Michele Rossi passes away in Milan
9-Oct-2023 - Professor
Michele Rossi has passed away in his hometown Milan on October
8th, 2023, where he was born 84 years ago.
"There will be time to remember the
great chemist", said Mario Pagliaro on learning the news, "now
it is the time to remember Michele, the fine gentleman, father
and grandfather, and dear friend.
"We met at a congress of italy's
Chemical Society in Alghero in June 2002. Perhaps also because
he was in his beloved Sardinia, Michele was particularly relaxed
and happy. A few months later, we started to collaborate.
"Michele was a man full of wit and
a true gentleman. Born a few months before his hometown was
subjected to heavy bombing during world war II, he was
one of the men who literally reconstructed Italy after the war.
"Like many gentlemen originating
from Milan, he loved Italy's beautiful south and its glorious
beaches and shores which he knew personally also as a
freediver when, in 1974, he became full Professor of inorganic
chemistry at the University of Bari.
"He will be greatly missed. During
this time of sorrow we wish to express our heartfelt condolances
to his familiy, friends, and former research team members".
