I have just received this very sad news that Giovanni Nicolotti passed away. The loss of a good friend and colleague Forest Pathologist is terribly sad news. Our condolences go out to all of his family.
The Italian Forest pathologists regret to announce the unexpected
death of Giovanni Nicolotti at the age of 48. Prof. Giovanni
Nicolotti, who was associate professor of forest pathology at the
University of Turin (Italy), suffered a major stroke last June 24th.
