Cristiano Castelletti

It is with great sadness we are reporting the heartbreaking news of Cristiano Castelletti’s passing on October 4, 2017 in Lugano, Switzerland.

Cris was a superb philologist, a wonderful friend, a loving husband and father. His work on Flavian epic is known to all. He had published numerous articles, most recently on acrostics.

Cris had completed a draft of his commentary on the eighth book of Valerius Flaccus’ Argonautica and was working on the influence of Aratus on the Flavian poets. His previous work includes a book on Porphyry.

We will always remember him for his great humor, kindness, and openness to his friends. He is survived by his wife, Beatrice, and young daughter.
