Prof. Vito Di Bello, a cardiologist, researcher, and teacher, but moreover, he was a “blues” professor corresponding to the music he loved to play.

He passed away after few months of illness, but he worked as a cardiologist and researcher until his last days.

His curriculum is full of successes and his scientific production has always been excellent in cardiology and medical science.

He loved so much his work and research in particular, but he never forgot to be, at first, a doctor, taking care of patients.

Despite his high scientific value, he had several hobbies other than medicine, so he was in love with music, blues, electric guitar, but also interested in nature, travel, cultures, the sea, and the Italian food.

I have been lucky to collaborate with him and I had the opportunity to see how much passion he dedicated to his work. He was able to transform “cold numbers” in imagines, meanings, and histories with significant impact on medicine and cardiology.

This way of working, associated with his passion, was a nice example for students and young doctors that were attracted by lessons and research.

We will miss Prof. Blues.
