The Giorgio Careri Memorial
The Physics Department of Sapienza University of Rome established, in 2010, a series of invited lectures named after Giorgio Careri (1922-2008). Professor of structure of matter for more than 30 years Careri gave a strong impulse to low-temperature physics and to biophysics. A brilliant independent mind he has been versed, until his very last days, in several subjects at the crossroad where physics, biology and the arts meet. The Giorgio Careri Memorial lecture is given, each year, by distinguished scholars active in the fields of interests cultivated by Careri, invited to present either comprehensive or sharply focused views on subjects of their own choice.
