The President and the Board of Italian Society of Echography and Cardiovascular Imaging (SIECVI) is mourning to announce to all members and imaging people the sad news of the death of Professor Maurizio Galderisi, vice-president and Chair of Echocardiography of European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) and honorary member of our SIECVI.

Active supporter of European and Italian society meetings, his scientific and clinical contributions are well known to everybody: Full Professor of Internal Medicine and Chief of Interdepartmental Laboratory of Echocardiography at Federico II University Hospital in Naples, Italy, and Head of the Program of Cardiovascular Emergencies and Oncohaematologic Complications.

With his important position in the EACVI, he has been the bridge with the SIECVI and the Italian word of cardiac imaging, also making the Euroecho meeting in Milan in December 2018 the most successful of the recent years.

In the last weeks, he served as clinical cardiology among coronavirus disease, paying with the life his heroic service. This sacrifice keeps the memory of his courage and has to be an example to all of us and to young cardiologists and has to be remembered from the medical and nonmedical community.

The Italian SIECVI feels his passing a great loss for the European Cardiology and particularly to the of echocardiography community and would like to express the sympathy and deepest condolences to Prof. Galderisi friends and family.

The President and all the Italian SIECVI.
