The ASEA-UNINET Community deeply regrets that our long-term co-ordinator of the Polytechnic University of Milan,
Professor Dr. Giancarlo Spinelli has passed away recently. We will always keep him in our memory as a valuable and active member of our community. The feelings of our sympathy and condolence belong to his family and his colleagues.

Prof. Dr. Dr.h.c.mult. Bernd Michael Rode
Honorary President of ASEA-UNINET

This is the message of Prof. Carla Locatelli giving us the sad news:

With great sadness I have to convey the news of Giancarlo Spinelli's premature death.
This coming Wednesday his funeral will take place in Milan.
Many of us have had the privilege of meeting and working with Giancarlo, a role model for many of us involved in the internationalization of Higher Education.
The Polytechnic of Milan loses a splendid colleague, and many of us lose a friend as well.
His legacy will live on: the seeds he planted have grown to be strong trees and beautiful flowers for a better world. His ideals of cooperation in research, and peace building are still with us, as are his relentless pursuit of scientific discovery and ethical commitment.

Please inform our ASEA-UNINET family of his departure, this time, on a different, long journey.

With sadness and in living remembrance,
