Dal sito dell’ICCRFOM   vedi pagina 

The ICCROM community is devastated at the news of the death of Jukka Jokilehto, one of our most prolific former staff members and a great friend of the organization.  Jukka retired in 1998 as Assistant to the Director General of ICCROM and was responsible for the training and conservation education of many generations of conservation professionals around the world. His depth of knowledge in the history and theory of conservation as well as built heritage conservation in general and urban heritage in particular, made him one of the most respected scholars internationally. His dedication to sharing this knowledge continued long after he retired, and his lectures were also a highlight of ICCROM activities. Our thoughts go to his family and friends.

A fuller biography will follow in due course.
