Terenzio Cozzi (1939-2022)

It was with great sorrow that we learned of the passing of Terenzio Cozzi. Those of us who knew him directly cannot forget his amiability, friendliness, and kindness.

In his long and rich career, we remember him first and foremost as the first President of STOREP (as well as founder together with other friends and colleagues).

Of Venetian descent, Cozzi graduated from Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Gesù (Milan) in 1962 with professor Siro Lombardini. He got a Ph.D. from Cambridge in 1969 under the supervision of Richard Goodwin. He was full professor of Political Economy at the Faculty of Political Science of the University of Turin, where he was appointed professor emeritus in 2012.

Among his many positions, it is worth mentioning that he was President of the Scientific Committee of the Fondazione Luigi Einaudi in Turin (from 1999 to 2006 and from 2010), President of STOREP (from 2004 to 2006), President of the Società Italiana degli Economisti-SIE (from 2007 to 2010), member of the Accademia delle Scienze in Turin since 1974 and of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei since 1994.

He has written numerous scientific publications on dynamic analysis within Keynesian theory. He is also the author of several widely circulated textbooks.

He was a person of great affability and balance, who always defended and promoted heterodox economics in all the institutional positions he held.
