After a long battle against his illness, Lino Nori has left this world on 18th December morning.
Mr. Nori was one of the fathers of Italian organic farming. A pioneer and a guide, a wise and balanced man who did everything possible to make Italian organic farming a strong and structured system, able to affirm itself inside the Country facing every possible interlocutor and to be competitive at international level.
Silently, he did a tremendous job for this cause and, to a large extent, he achieved his goal. Along his path he crossed even someone who did not understand him and got in the way, as it happens all the time, everywhere, but particularly in Italy (do you remember the Guelphes and Ghibellines? Nothing has changed). He faced these situations wisely, almost smiling. To be enemy of someone like him, always looking for the point of balance, was really difficult for anyone.
In 2005, Lino Nori was the first president of FederBio, launching the project of a unitary national representation of the entire sector. Before, in 1988, he founded the certification system of organic companies in Italy creating the CCPB which today is an authoritative certification body at an international level. Furthermore, until the last few days, he held the role of president of the Consortium “Il Biologico”, through which many companies have started their growth process on international markets, with the collective participation, organized by the Consortium, to the major international food fairs.
He was popular and esteemed even abroad. He left a void. The Italian organic can only regret it. He faced his long illness with dignity and privacy as best people do.
Greenplanet staff, to whom he was close, remembers him with esteem and affection.
