On Monday September 28, 2015 Prof. Guido Barbiellini Amidei, currently co-Principal Investigator of the AGILE Mission of the Italian Space Agency and one of the founding members of the NASA international experiment Fermi, has been awarded the honor of the “Sigillo” of the Province of Trieste.

Prof. Barbiellini Amidei, full professor at the Physics Department of the Trieste University, currently retired, has a long experience in the field of elementary particles and of high-energy astrophysics of cosmic radiation.

Both AGILE and Fermi instruments use silicon detectors, precisely proposed for a space application by Prof. Barbiellini Amidei in 1987. His many students and colleagues have always admired his working method and his team-working attitude in common projects, often following his original intuitions.
