The Society is sad to announce the passing of member Dr. Silvano Adami. Dr. Adami was the Director of Rheumatology at the Azienda Ospedaliera Universitaria Integrata in Verona, Italy. He was a friend and colleague to many, a long-time participant of the ASBMR Annual Meetings, and past contributor to the Primer on the Metabolic Bone Diseases and Disorders of Mineral Metabolism. Dr. Adami was also a founder and Past-President on the Italian Society for Osteoporosis and Metabolic Skeletal Disorders.

 

Throughout his career, Dr. Adami provided seminal contributions to our understanding of the pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy of osteoporosis and other metabolic bone disorders, and functioned as lead investigator of many large-scale trials on osteoporosis medications. He was a relentless advocate for implementation of programs for fracture prevention in Italy and in Europe, and a passionate, insightful, and determined clinician and researcher. Silvano was a role model and a dear friend to those who have had the privilege of working with him; his gentle smile and demeanor will be greatly missed, along with his acumen and deep knowledge. We invite you to leave a note or share a memory of Dr. Adami below.

My late husband, Gideon Rodan, and I considered Silvano a good friend and a wonderful, thoughtful and knowledgeable colleague.

 

My condolences to his wife Carmen.

Silvano was a role model as a clinician researcher. He was also a friend and a gentleman in love with his home city, Verona. I remember walking with him through the streets of Verona in the middle of night where his family had its roots back a millennium.

He loved Italian wines and was generous in sharing that passion. Thank you Silvano

Silvano was a unique combination of a sharp scentific and critical mind, a pronouced sense of humour, of honesty and freindship. We shall miss him a lot.

I would like to thank Silvano for these 30 years together. He was a citizen of the world, appreciated and beloved far beyond his country. Working with him was one of the greatest gifts of my life because he was for me, and will always be, not only a mentor but especially my best friend.
