Maiani has been president of Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare and of Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, and General Director of CERN in Geneva. He is currently chair of Commissione Nazionale Grandi Rischi (PCM) and continuous his research activities on fundamental particle physics at Sapienza and at CERB. Among his contributions, the prediction, together with S. L. Glashow and J. Iliopoulos, of the existence of a new quark type, the quark charm.
