We are deeply saddened to share with the community the following message we received from Marilena Crupi and Rosanna Utano:
We are deeply sad to inform you that our teacher Professor Gaetana Restuccia (1947-2022) passed away on February 27, 2022. Since 1980 Gaetana Restuccia has been the leader of the research group of Commutative Algebra in Messina. She has inspired two generations of young algebrists and has been a very appreciated teacher. She has encouraged her students to study abroad, organized some international conferences and schools, inviting prominent algebrists in Messina and establishing strong collaborations from all parts of the world. It is a big loss for all of us.
