Carmine Melino and the Institute of Hygiene.

Author information

Department of Experimental Medicine & Surgery, University of Rome Tor Vergata, Rome, Italy.


Throughout his 94 years of life, Carmine Melino brilliantly pursued different professional paths, his life being a constant stimulus for students, colleagues, friends and the family. Following the early formative years of study, here, we briefly list his scientific achievements in Occupational Medicine and Hygiene as well as his broad literary interests. Carmine was an inspiration to his generation not only because of his professional achievements, but also for his warm personality, exemplary hard-playing life and unbounded enthusiasm. A polymath, post-enlightenment ethos flowed to all his friends and colleagues, creating an ambience where intellectual excellence was highly appreciated and avidly pursued.
