All people have their fancies; some desire horses, and others dogs; and some are fond of gold, and others of honour. Now, I have no violent desire of any of these things; but I have a passion for friends; and I would rather have a good friend than the best cock or quail in the world: I would even go further, and say the best horse or dog. Yea, by the dog of Egypt, I should greatly prefer a real friend to all the gold of Darius, or even to Darius himself: I am such a lover of friends as that.
The Angelo Marcello Anile Association has been founded by his family to commemorate his memory, to preserve the special “style” that characterised his life and professional work, and to support scientific research in pure and applied mathematics with the same intellectual freedom which he had, trying to maintain the same vision and spirit of enquiry that he pursued during his career as a greatly-respected international scientist.
Membership is open to individuals or institutions who support the objectives of the Association and who are interested in its proposed activities. Those wishing to join should make a written request to the Directive Council.
