Addio, Rita Levi-Montalcini, age 103

Her niece, Piera Levi-Montalcini, told La Stampa newspaper that she had died peacefully “as if sleeping” after lunch.

Her aunt had continued to carry out several hours of research every day until her death, she said.

A Nature article on the occasion of her 100th birthday is here.
