In memoriam

Prof. Augusto Fantozzi, IFA Honorary member

17 July 2019

Honorary member, Prof. Avv. Augusto Fantozzi passed away on 13 July 2019 at the age of 79. Prof. Fantozzi was a very active and involved IFA Member, both in the Italian Branch and in central IFA. From 1981 until the end of 1994 he contributed to the scientific work in IFA, first as member of the PSC and since 1989 as Chair. At the end of 1994 he had to retire from the PSC upon his appointment as Minister of Finance of Italy.

After his retirement from PSC he continued to be a regular participant of our Annual Congresses until some years ago.
IFA is most grateful for his invaluable contribution to our association. In 2010, during the IFA Congress in Rome, he was appointed Honorary Member of IFA.

We will remember Augusto as an amiable IFA friend with whom it was a privilege and a pleasure to work and talk. May he rest in peace.
Our thoughts are with his family.
