Lettera del Professor Liapis

Dear Alberto,

I was extremely saddened by the news of your father’s and my dearest friend Prof. Piergiorgio Settembrini
death. Your father was a leading figure in Vascular Surgery, not only for Italy, but for Europe and the USA
both due to his high intellect expressed by his many scientific contributions but also due to the generosity
and kindness of his character explaining his many friends all over the world. Having the opportunity to discuss
with him many times throughout our long-lasting friendship, on matters of vascular disorders, organization
of services, training and education, at the end of each meeting he never failed to express his pride of you and
your achievements.

He was certainly a man who left his print in the world and who will be sorely missed by not only his family,
but also his students, his patients, his colleagues and his many friends who will always remember him with

Please convey my condolences to the family and to the Italian Vascular Community.

C. D. Liapis
