a physicist at CERN, professor at the University of Pisa and associated researcher at INFN, was one of the key players in discovering the Higgs boson. The important result garnered François Englert and Peter Higgs the Nobel prize for physics in 2013. After taking part in research projects in Europe and in the U.S., he focused on the CMS project at CERN. As head of the CMS Collaboration in 2010-11, he led the hunt for the most elusive particle in the history of physics, at its most crucial moments. He has received numerous international prizes and awards for his contribution to this discovery. The most prestigious among these include the Special Prize for Fundamental Physics, the Enrico Fermi Prize and the Medal of Honor assigned by the President of the Italian Republic. In 2016 he published the book La nascita imperfetta delle cose (Rizzoli).
