Rita Levi Montalcini

Italian Neurobiologist Rita Levi-Montalcini , born in Torino in 1909 died today. Montalcini had lived 30 years in US and in 1986 she was awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine.

Montalcini has lived through anti-Semitic discrimination and Nazi invasion. One of the big women in science and role model for Italian (and not only) women. A big proudness for all Italians.

“Do not think of your self think of the others!”
Dico ai giovani: non pensate a voi stessi, pensate agli altri. Pensate al futuro che vi aspetta, pensate a quello che potete fare, e non temete niente. Non temete le difficoltà: io ne ho passate molte, e le ho attraversate senza paura, con totale indifferenza alla mia persona.
