Abstract

Lorenzo Gotte (1926-1991) was an outstanding histologist at the School of Medicine of Padua. This year marks the 25th anniversary of his passing away – commemorated during the recent congress of the Italian Society for the Connective Tissue (SISC), held in Padua (September 30 - October 1, 2016). This brief note recalls this outstanding figure: indeed, forthose who knew him, Lorenzo Gotte was an exceptional scientist and at the same time, an unparalleled teacher – and, for many, a great friend. It is still difficult to separate these aspects of his personality, so intertwined in his life: studying elastin and elastic tissue was a passion central to Gotte’s life.
