“Painful sadness and sorrow. This is what I feel now. However, if I think about you, a smile comes up to my face. You have been a teacher and friend to me. I think that one of your greatest merits was “sharing” thoughts, ideas, techniques. And you did that with the enthusiasm of a passionate pioneer and the humility of the true Greats. Today we are Cesare. And since you never really liked the English version: “ciao Cesare. Resti nei nostri cuori di amici e nelle nostre mani e pensieri di chirurghi. Un abbraccio”

— Athanasios Nikolakopoulos, Greece
