Sometimes meta can be used to spread news that might be interesting for the community. Unfortunately today a sad one reached the Italian newspapers.
Yesterday, July 21st 2022, the famous Italian linguist Luca Serianni died. He was in the hospital following a traffic accident.
He was one of the foremost Italian linguists. He's probably most known to the users of this site for his Italian grammar book, considered the most authoritative reference work on the subject and a frequent presence in many answers. He was also, together with Maurizio Trifone, one of the current editors of the famous Devoto-Oli dictionary, a constant companion of my school years.
