Pistoia, 4 April 2021 – One of the most beloved professors of Pistoia. Roberto Nania, 63 years old, engineer and professor of electronics at Fedi-Fermi, originally from Poggio a Caiano, he lost his fight against the Coronavirus. Indeed, against its English variant. “Yes is infected at school at the end of February – his wife Olga thunders upset and desperate, after an illness that lasted more than a long month in which she clung to all possible hopes -. At first, they thought of vaccinating only teachers up to the age of 55 and he therefore failed to do so. It had the English variant. He tested positive at the end of February and only after two days ended up in hospital because the doctor never called him back. My husband was abandoned. He had breathing difficulties and wanted to start therapy, but no one showed up, so we decided to take him to San Jacopo where they told us that he already had a compromised lung “.

From there a long ordeal began for Professor Nania. “He spent the first week in the Covid ward – says his wife -. Then the worsening, so he was transferred to intensive care. The hospital staff was very good so much so that they arranged for the transfer to the Careggi polyclinic to be able to attack him at the hospital. ‘Ecmo, the machine that allows extra-body breathing. Everything had gone well, so much so that the first two days seemed to improve, then he gave up and got worse and worse. This morning (yesterday, ed) he had a cardiac arrest, they filmed it but then they realized that there would be nothing to do and that it would only be a matter of hours “.

A tragedy huge that affected the entire school community. Nania was adored by his students, many thanks to him did not leave school, others with his evening courses that he himself organized at the Fedi-Fermi, they left to study and even decided to continue with the university. “His boys loved him – underlines his wife – In these hours we are getting many photos and videos of former students who still remember him with love”.

Passionate about travel and a great sportsman, Nania was a very healthy man so much that many believed that he would defeat the virus. The battle, on the other hand, was all uphill. Great condolences from the Fedi-Fermi institute led by the principal Paolo Bernardi. “As a professor he has dedicated his entire life to school, at the two great technical professional institutes of the city: the then Ipsia Pacinotti and the Iti Fedi, now the ITT Fedi-Fermi – explains Bernardi -. In his teaching activity, he worked for everyone’s educational success: he esteemed and respected the students and the students reciprocated him with equal esteem and great affection; for many he was a guide in the difficult moments of growth. He believed in teamwork, in teaming up, in inclusion of the weakest subjects and had managed to activate the courses at the institute and give them a great development, becoming their sure point of reference. Roberto, a man of great culture, loved literature, cinema, photography, great travels, art, music, beauty in all its manifestations. He lived all these interests with great passion, a passion that he was able to transmit to others as well. He embellished and enriched the common areas of the Isti headquarters all with photographic testimonies, commented by the thoughts of philosophers and writers, coming from many different cultures, from the countries he had visited. His fast pace, his smile and good humor, his empathy will resonate forever in our classrooms and in our hearts. The institute joins with an embrace the pain of the family and intends to take initiatives to keep alive the memory of Professor Roberto Nania. “The date of the funeral has not yet been decided, the body of Professor Nania will arrive in Pistoia no sooner. on Monday.
