Sergio Ferrara


Sergio Ferrara has been awarded the Commendatore Ordine al Merito della Repubblica Italiana. The Italian Order of Merit of the Republic is earned on the basis of contributions made to literature, public service and the economy and of humanitarian activities. Ferrara’s Commander ranking – of the third class – is recognition by the Republic for his contributions as a theorist to the physics community.


As an already accomplished theoretical physicist, Ferrara urges young students starting their careers to work with much curiosity and enthusiasm. He encourages them to be trustful of their own self-confidence.
