Emilio del Giudice (1940-2014)

Emeritus Professor in Theoretical Particle Physics Yogendra (Yogi) Srivastava sends a few words:

Emilio began his research career at Naples with INFN in high energy physics and then transferred himself to the INFN of Milano. He spent some time at MIT and there worked with two illustrious Professors S. Fubini from CERN & Torino and Gabriele Veneziano producing first rate papers.



Somewhat later, after Giuliano Preparata became a Professor at Milano, Emilio started a long standing close scientific collaboration as well as a very close personal friendship with G.Preparata. They formed a formidable team with Giuliano 's mastery of theoretical formalism and Emilio's deep physical insight. Their work on the mysteries of water brought upon by its ferroelectric nature discovered by them would then lead to a vindication of so many ideas of Benveniste. In the beginning, they provided a vocal scientific basis for the memory of water that had been so much maligned by others who knew so little about the subject.



Further on the highly controversial subject of Cold Fusion by Fleischmann Pons was taken up by the Milano Giuliano Preparata and Emilio Del Giudice duo and they began formulating ways on how CF could be achieved both theoretically and experimentally. For this they would be ostracized and ridiculed all over Italy specially by INFN.

After G.Preparata’s early demise, Emilio continued his work on water with Vitiello and other collaborators and he became a major voice in that field. Over the past few years their work on water became associated with the replication of Benveniste's work and further research on the subject with Professor Luc Montangnier's group. It has led to a remarkable change in the scientific community about the role of water in biology specially with low frequency Electromagnetic signals that have been found.



After his retirement from INFN, he went to the German research institute in Neuss to continue his various avenues of research.

Emilio was a great believer in homeopathy and once again was often ridiculed for it. Emilio's extraordinary sense of humour was contagious even to his detractors and quite often he succeeded in changing his detractors views on the subject.

At a conference in Sussex circa 1980, he introduced himself to the largely British audience as Emil McJudge and brought the audience down. In those days we all used plastic transparencies and the plastic would often fall off to the ground. So the Chair of his session put four one pound coins to hold the plastic to prevent its falling. At the end of his talk Emilio pocketed all the four coins with a big fat grin saying something to the effect that he needed it more than the illustrious Chair! Once again -as elsewhere, whenever he spoke- the audience cheered him.
