Abstract: On January 7-th, 2010, Carlo Cercignani, Professor of Mathematical Physics at Politecnico di Milano, passed away in Milan, after a long illness.
   If one ought to indicate a single man as a reference point for the development of kinetic theory in the last 50 years from a mathematical, physical, historical and, more generally, cultural point of view, there is no doubt that everybody would think of Carlo Cercignani. We have not only lost a very reputed and loved colleague, but also a pivotal figure for all of us working in the field.
