It is with great sadness that ASMI announces the death of our Honorary President and former Chair, Denis Mack Smith. The foremost scholar of modern and contemporary Italy in the postwar era, Denis worked at the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford and was a fellow of the British Academy. His intelligence, wit and charm will be missed by all who knew him. A fuller tribute will follow in due course in Modern Italy.
