It is with great sadness that we share the news of Dr Valerio Lucchesi passing away on September 2nd, 2018 at the age of 91

Dr Lucchesi joined the Italian Sub-Faculty at Oxford in 1966, was University Lecturer in Italian and then Fellow of Corpus Christi College from 1970 until his retirement in 1994.

Our thoughts are with Valerio’s wife, Joyce. Information on the funeral and memorial service will be shared soon.
