Bruno Ratti, great entrepreneur and good friendDear Distributor Colleagues, Marco Ratti sent us sad news this morning about the passing of his farther and our dear colleague Bruno Ratti. This is very sad news for us personally and I am sure for everyone who had the privilege of being around him. Our thoughts and prayers are with MariaLaura, Marco, Dilma, and their entire family today.
The world has lost a great intellect, scientist, entrepreneur, and for us a good friend and colleague. He was someone one who was uniquely able to see and interpret are all things in the context of history, culture and philosophy. He saw GIS, his work and life this way...as having meaning to the world.
Also, details mattered to Bruno, whether they were art, graphics and words... or business strategy and direction. He aspired to understand everything and was a kind of renaissance man that reminded all of us about the richness and purpose of life. Plus a person who loved to have fun and had a great sense of humor.
It will take some time for all of us to get used to him not being with us. I remember quite clearly his enthusiasm and commitment to doing things well and doing things right.
I know his spirit will continue in the minds of all of us.
