“Restarting from knowledge” is the title of the book, just published, of the CRUI President but it should be a programmatic commitment: education and research are the main fields in which to invest in order to make the country prepared to meet the challenges that we are living, now more than ever, in a time of fast and great changes.

In memoriam
With great sadness, we announce the loss of our beloved colleague, Michele Calì (1946-2021), who was Professor Emeritus at the Politecnico di Torino, former full professor of “Fisica Tecnica Industriale” at the Department of Energy and Coordinator of the PhD Programme in Energetics of the same University, member of the Academy of Sciences of Torino. His student and colleague, Pietro Asinari, remembers him thus: “I had talked to Michele a few weeks ago and I found him enthusiastic as always, cheerful, curious, and energetic in proposing new initiatives. Nothing would have made me foresee this outcome, but unfortunately, he was taken away from us too soon. In addition to being a point of reference for decades at the Politecnico di Torino, certainly for students but also for colleagues, I remember his humanity, his care in understanding situations and his advice. He has never failed me with good advice and strong encouragement. He always said there is hope in young people. His greatest teachings are about attention to the environmental issue and sustainability, before the term has become so popular, as well as the constant effort to promote the Italy’s good. Have a good trip, Professor”.
