UNIMED remembers Professor Giuseppe D’Ascenzo


UNIMED remembers with affection and gratitude Professor Giuseppe D’Ascenzo who passed away in the night between Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 of May, at the age of 86. Professor D’Ascenzo was Rector of the Sapienza University of Rome from 1997 to 2004 and President of UNIMED during the same period. 

A great friend of UNIMED founder Prof. Franco Rizzi, his Presidency was characterised by a period of expansion in terms of international cooperation and growth of associated universities. 

He was personally involved in spreading and teaching the importance of job safety and security in Syria, actively engaged in the realisation of the MEDTRA Occupational Medicine Training Course project.

He leaves in all of us the memory of a man of enormous culture and, at the same time, of shy and smiling irony.
