How about:

  • From the head of the Polymnia Network
    It is with deep sadness that we advise of the passing of Ezio Pellizer, Professor at the University of Trieste, and a member of our network. We will remember his many articles and books on mythology and mythography, as well as projects carried out within the Gruppo triestino di ricerca sul mito and mitografia (GRIMM). We shall treasure the memory of a man of great erudition, who showed discreet elegance, and also an ever benevolent irony.We share in the grief felt by his family, his friends and his colleagues in Italy, in Europe and around the world.
