GIOVANNI ANANIA (Catanzaro 9 December 1957- Cosenza 15 July 2015)
On July 15th 2015 our friend and colleague professor Giovanni Anania suddenly passed away.
Giovanni Anania was Full Professor at the University of Calabria (Italy), President of the European Association of Agricultural Economists (EAEE) and one of the founders of the Associazione Italiana di Economia Agraria e Applicata (AIEAA)
His scientific commitment was directly inspired to the scientific, political and cultural heritage of Manlio Rossi-Doria since he earned a post-graduate diploma from the Portici Center. He was then one of the most active promoters and one of the founders of the Associazione per studi e ricerche Manlio Rossi-Doria. He was member of the Manlio Rossi-Doria Centre for Economic and Social Research from the beginning of our activities.
We are committed to remember Giovanni’s scientific achievements and we are presently working on different activities and events to honor Giovanni:
- Giovanni Anania Scholarship
- Giovanni Anania Summer School for PhD candidates and young researchers, a constant focus in Giovanni’s mentoring action.
