This morning our office received the news about the sudden passing of our President Prof. Rodolfo Cattani. We feel deep grief and sadness about this loss.
Rodolfo was extremely well known and respected throughout the disability movement, not only being deeply involved in EBU, but also with WBU, EDF, UICI in Italy, and in many other roles throughout a long and distinguished career. His diplomatic and linguistic skills, and profound knowledge of EU institutions were legendary, earning the respect of all those who worked with him, but he also made great impact on people through his personal warmth and wisdom, and his love of life.
It is an understatement to say that he will be deeply missed, and our thoughts go out to Anna, his wife, and all his family, friends and colleagues throughout Europe and worldwide.
