Farewell Pier Mario

Pier Mario Vello has prematurely passed away June 29th, 2014.

Pier Mario was 63 years old, served as Secretary General at Cariplo Foundation since 2006 and held numerous positions in major international institutions. Throughout his outstanding career, he distinguished himself as an inexorable supporter of knowledge as a tool for personal and organisational development and by continuously advocating a better understanding among people. His commitment and unarguable creativity were recognized with several international awards.

His passing is a severe loss for our Foundation. A brilliant leader and a sensitive man. Thanks to his expertise our foundation accomplished  important achievements, but besides his knowledge "our" Pier Mario shared with us his great personality, that permeated every working and friendship relationships.

Our thoughts and the most profound sympathy and grief are with Pier Mario’s family at this sad time.
