    “As this conference demonstrates, his intellectual legacy is enormous, just as his heart was. We miss him terribly, but we must cherish the time we were lucky enough to spend with him.” This was said by the Prime Minister, Mario Draghi, recalling the economist Alberto Alesina at the tribute event underway at Bocconi in Milan. “Alesina was an exceptional mentor for many students and young academics, and a leading voice in the public debate – he added -. His columns in the Corriere della Sera were essential reading for anyone involved in politics and government, regardless of his own ideas. He was a driving force at Harvard, at the National Bureau for Economic Research, at CEPR, in the Quarterly Journal of Economics. And he was an inspiration to many: full of life, self-deprecating, with an extraordinary team spirit. “
