The President and the Board of Italian Society of Cardiovascular Echography (SIEC) announce to all Members and the international cardiology community, the sad news of the death of Professor Salvatore Mario De Tommasi, honorary member of SIEC, where he represented a wise, peacemaker, and moderate soul.

Active supporter of all society scientific meetings with witty argumentations, his scientific and clinical contributions are well known to everybody: Chief of the Cardiology Hospital in Pisa, one of the founders of the Pediatric Cardiology and a pioneer of the rising Pediatric Echocardiography in Italy.

During his last months of life, he continued to be active in international echocardiographic research and teaching, participating in the most important meetings, thus continuing to provide wise suggestions to young cardiologists.

Complying with his reserved character, not eager to official awards, we want to celebrate him with a series of brief memories of his closest friends members of SIEC such as Antonio Pezzano, Alberto Balbarini, Italo de Luca, Giuseppe Gullace, Scipione Carerj, Frank Benedetto and with a Scientific Award at his name for a young investigator, reserved to a cardiologist who will submit the best scientific abstract to the next National Meeting of SIEC.

To his family, and in particular to his wife Paola, all the SIEC members want to express the deepest condolences.
