Gherardo Gnoli (Rome 1937 – Cagli 2012) was one of the most distinguished scholars of pre-Islamic Iran. From 1965 to 1993 he was Professor of Iranian Philology at the Istituto Universitario Orientale of Naples (now L’Orientale Uni- versity), of which he was also Rector from 1970 to 1978. Then, from 1993 to 2008 he was appointed Professor of the “Religious History of Iran and Central Asia” at the University of Rome La Sapienza, and Professor Emeritus since 2009. It was mainly due to Gherardo Gnoli’s work and teaching that Iranian philology in Italy was able to grow into a distinct field of studies parallel to that of Persian studies. He was a member of many scientific academies. From 1979 to 1995, succeeding Giuseppe Tucci and Sabatino Moscati, he was President of the Istituto Italiano per il Medio ed Estremo Oriente (IsMEO) and since 1995 of the Istituto Italiano per l’Africa e l'Oriente (IsIAO). As President of the IsMEO, he contributed signif- icantly to the expansion of Italian research work in Asia (after 1995 also in Africa) by increasing both the size of the related disciplines and the geographical areas involved. He was also a founding member of the Societas Iranological Europaea (SIE), and it is not mere coincidence that, as long as the IsIAO was active, the of- ficial seat of the Societas was located at the Institute....(abstract dalla premessa di Enrico Morano, Elio Provasi, Adriano V.
