Member of Honour
† August 15, 2003
We remember Mrs. Mercedes LUZZATI as the irreplaceable partner and collaborator for many years of mourned Avv. Mario G.E. LUZZATI, President of the Italian Group of AIPPI from 1961 to 1970, who was appointed Member of Honour of AIPPI International in 1971.
Since the early sixties Mrs. LUZZATI was an active Member of the Italian Group, which appointed her Honorary Member in 1966. With her husband first, then, after his death, from 1970 till 1993, under Avv. Luigi SORDELLI’s presidency, she assiduously attended the Italian Group’s work and almost all AIPPI International Conferences.
She was very active at international level as well, particularly in Committee Q50 “Reorganization of the IAPIP – Working methods”, where she was Secretary under Mr. Sten E. TENGELIN’s chairmanship. This Committee, established in 1977, worked for a long time, until it produced a revision of the AIPPI Statutes and Regulations in 1985. In the same year, 1985, she was appointed Member of Honour of AIPPI at the Executive Committee Meeting held in Rio de Janeiro. She retired from active life only in 1993, after more than 30 years of being enthusiastically devoted to the Association.
