CARLO BERTOLINI  (1945-2017)

With great sadness we announce that on the 2nd of June 2017, unexpectedly, Prof. CARLO BERTOLINI passed away.

Professor of the Catholic University of Rome, Carlo had been the protagonist of the history of Rehabilitation not only in Italy but also in all Europe.

We are proud that we had the honor and pleasure of knowing Carlo and of working  with him over the years in all European bodies of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine,

in which his role has been outstanding… 

He was elected as member of European Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine  in September 1996.

 His competence, class and wisdom were and will remain as unique!! Above all, he was a true friend and a valued member of the Academy.

He will be remembered by all of us. May he rest in peace!!!!

On behalf of all Academicians ,we passed our condolences to  his wife Rita, and his daughters Francesca and Federica.

This body of up to 50 senior doctors in the specialty across Europe was created in 1969. Academicians are invited on the basis of their distinguished contribution to the specialty, particularly its humanitarian aspects. The aim of the Académie is to improve all areas of rehabilitation for the benefit of those who need it. It thus promotes education and research across Europe, acting as a reference point in scientific, educational and research matters, exchanging ideas and information, facilitating the exchange of PRM doctors between different countries and engaging in moral and ethical debate.


Its motto is: ‘Societatis vir origo ac finis' which can be translated as ‘Man is both the source and the goal of Society'.
