In memory of Ettore

We find ourselves very sadly bidding a final farewell to Ettore Beghi.

We would like to express all respect and admiration for the man and the researcher, and gratitude for his contribution to the birth and development of the Italian network of Global Burden of Disease researchers.

Ettore co-founded the group, and has been present since the first initiative: the Venice workshop organized by Giancarlo Logroscino in October 2016 at the Congress of Neurology.

His great experience and professionalism were always accompanied by great modesty, sympathy, and respect for all.

We will greatly miss his guidance, passion and smile.
