Arrivederci, carissimo Professore Piantoni

It is with immense sadness that the FIFA Master Alumni family shares the news of the passing away of Professor Gianfranco Piantoni, former member of The FIFA Master Scientific Committee.
Professor Piantoni, who taught Strategic Business Administration at the SDA Bocconi School of Management in Milano, as well as at Bologna University, was involved in The FIFA Master from the outset and his passion for sport and vibrant personality always left a lasting impression on the alumni who fondly remember his philosophical lectures, the passion for AC Milan (plus one club in each other country) and graduation speeches.
Professor Piantoni was a great believer in investing in young managers and giving them opportunities to become leaders in the sports industry. His inspirational approach to life and his exuberant smile will be sadly missed by all connected to the FIFA Master.
Sincere condolences go to Professor Piantoni’s wife and sons.
The FMA Committee
