26 July 1955 - 10 March 2017 Naples, Italy
The world has lost a rare scholar and wonderful person. Cesare Rossi was a distinguished professor of engineering and also historian of engineering. He was a friend and an Associate of the Foundation for Science, Technology and Civilisation, UK (FSTC UK). He passed away whilst preparing to join us in London at the ”Symposium on Science and Engineering in Muslim Heritage” organised jointly by FSTCUK and Al-Furqan Heritage Foundation. His paper was going to be about The Influences on Da Vinci’s Engineering. His recent book entitled Ancient Engineers' Inventions, History of Mechanism and Machine Science, vol 33. Springer, Cham. (2017) will be a long-lasting reference for researchers.
