Abstract

On the 7th March 2012 Gherardo Gnoli, Academician of Lincei and formerly professor of Religious History of Iran and Central Asia at the Sapienza University of Rome, passed away after a long illness. Italian Orientalism is thus deprived of one of its outstanding figures: a great scholar as well as active promoter of scientific activities, he enjoyed international renown, receiving and developing the heritage entrusted to him by Giuseppe Tucci with the presidency of IsMEO. The Italian scientific community as a whole, but particularly those Oriental studies which he had so keenly promoted, lose a scholar of exceptional scientific and human stature, a true reference point for colleagues and students. Gherardo Gnoli was born in Rome on the 6th December 1937, and studied at the University of Rome under the guidance of great scholars such as Antonino Pagliaro and Giorgio Levi Della Vida, Sabatino Moscati and Alessandro Bausani. Giuseppe Tucci appreciated his qualities and was the tutor for his Laurea dissertation, dedicated in 1962 to the religious aspects of the monetary imagery of the Kushans. In the same year Gherardo Gnoli joined the excavation campaign, the direction of which his friend and colleague Umberto Scerrato had embarked upon,
