Ciao Federico

It is with the greatest of sadness that I deliver to you today the heartbreaking news of the death of our colleague and friend, Federico Prandi.

I’ve been informed that Federico died in the afternoon of the 14th of April.
Federico ’s funeral will be on 18th of April at 14:00 at Cemetery of Trento

On behalf of all of us here at Fondazione Graphitech I would like to take the liberty of sending out to his family, our most heartfelt condolences and sympathy.

Federico was an extremely valued member of our team since November 2009.

Federico always had a smile for everyone and was highly regarded by everyone who ever had the opportunity to meet him.

Back in 2009 when Federico joined Graphitech, he took on the position of Postdoc Researcher. Over the years, he worked his way into the position of Senior Researcher, regardless of the challenges he may have had along the way.

Everyone who’d ever had the privilege to collaborate with him, always found him a special pleasure to work with.

Such an extraordinary person Federico was. This is truly a great loss to our organization and to our community as a whole. He will be profoundly missed by everyone whose lives he touched. Nevertheless, let us remember Federico each time, with a smile upon our faces.
