In memoriam

Prof. Carlo Alberto Pagni

(13 February 1931 – 2 March 2009)

Sad news reached the KWA community last week: our Italian member Prof. Carlo Alberto Pagni had completely unexpectedly passed away in Milan on Monday, 2nd of March. Nobody could know that after his 78th birthday – we still congratulated him at the end of February – only such a short time was left to him.
