Vincenzo Schioppa Narrante, 1956-2016 (RIP), Secretary-General of the European University Institute

It is with profound shock and sadness that we must communicate the passing of Vincenzo Schioppa Narrante on the morning of August 24th in the San Leonardo Hospital of Salerno, where he had been treated for the last two weeks after a traffic accident.
 
Ambassador Schioppa Narrante was a person of profound culture and wide interests. He was an alumnus of the French École Nationale d’Administration (ENA) and had a distinguished career in the Italian Foreign Ministry. His last posting was as Ambassador to South Africa. Earlier he served, inter alia, as Ambassador in Libya during the dramatic events of the 2011 revolution and previously as Permanent Representative of Italy to the OECD in Paris.
 
Vincenzo Schioppa Narrante joined the EUI as Secretary-General on March 2nd 2016. In a very short time he managed to leave a distinctive mark on both the internal and external life of the EUI, initiating a series of initiatives of great importance.


 
With his considerable diplomatic and managerial experience coupled with a creative and enthusiastic personality, Vincenzo Schioppa Narrante brought to the Institute new energy, a fresh perspective and broad vision for the future of the EUI in the world.
