Emilio del Giudice (1940-2014)

This page is dedicated to the memory of Emilio del Giudice who was an outstanding scientist, a fascinating lecturer and a wonderful friend. He presented his research on Water conferences every year from 2007 to 2013 – always very committed and inspiring. His wisdom and humor have always been an important part of the meeting’s atmosphere.



He was a theoretical physicist, a researcher at the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) in Milan, a member of the International Institute of Biophysics in Neuss, Germany. He worked at MIT in Cambridge, USA and at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. His research interests related primarily to the quantum field theory, and the study of the collective properties of matter, to shed light on the nature of life. He is the author of numerous scientific articles. He was awarded the Medal Prigogine 2009.

Emilio worked so hard to explain physical phenomena underlying principles of the memory of water and a biological signal transmission by electromagnetic waves

At this page you can hear the sound of Emilio’s soul which was recorded at the Water Conference’13 by special device (download sound). If you want to share your memories of Emilio del Giudice please send the related materials to mail@waterconf.com.
