To Italian Graduate Society:
Dear Alberto, Hiromi, Eleonora, Brian,
On behalf of the whole department I would like to thank you for putting together a wonderful conference this past weekend. Panels and discussions were of the highest caliber and Vincenzo Binetti gave a most stimulating keynote speech at the opening of the event.
Now that celebrations for the 250th anniversary of the foundation of the university have started, I realize how appropriate and almost prophetic your thinking was when you first came up with the theme for the conference over a year ago. Revolutionary is indeed what university should be—and you gave us a taste of revolutionary ideas.
A heartfelt thank you to all who contributed to the success of the conference in all aspects of the organization. I know Sheri played a great part in it. Thank you, Prof. White, for hosting a delicious and delightful closing dinner on Saturday night.
