Mauro Gendotti †

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Dr. Mauro Gendotti, president of the Swiss Alp Committee. A well known and liked veterinarian who was located in Faido in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland, Mauro Gendotti was a compassionate supporter of transhumance.
The message of his untimely death at the age of 68 was a shock for the entire community of the Leventina valley where he worked all his life. He was not just an animal doctor, he understood the culture and – most of all – the history of his beloved canton Ticino.
The winners of the Adopt-an-Alp program could see first hand what an eloquent, passionate and educated host he was during our day in the Ticino in the summer of 2019.
His kind soul will be dearly missed.
