Leonardo Masotti, university professor, pioneer of electronics (or electrical engineering “of weak currents”, as it was still called when he graduated), has left us. He was a very important figure for the Florentine and Italian industry, a true innovator who was able to give impetus to many now well-established realities, in the world of industrial lasers as well as in the medical sector.
Perhaps not everyone knows that he was a great supporter of the application of technology to the study of art, too, to the point of accepting the position of President of the Regional Technological District for Cultural Heritage. It is thanks to his vision that, for example, we have many lasers for restoration.
But above all it was the professor who had remained a constant point of reference through the years.
His genuinely kind manners and curiosity for each new idea will remain to guide us in the future as well.
