Benito Rimini, the former professor and accountant who collected degrees, died at 96

He was three times Doctor Benito Rimini, who passed away yesterday at the age of 96: he received his last degree (in philosophy) in 2020 when he had already completed 94. He discussed a thesis on anxiety and living for death in Heidegger, without ask teachers for discounts, as he pointed out. And he did so in front of the television news cameras, which came to tell the story of a man in love “with knowledge in general” as he revealed in the crypt of Sant’Andrea in Vercelli in front of family members and those who wanted to see closely that student so far ahead with the years.

His first degree was in economics, in Perugia in the Umbria that was his birthplace, and it was the discipline that marked his professional life. He had been an esteemed accountant but also a teacher: he was a professor at the Bona institute and many alumni of accounting were among the first to leave messages of condolence. The second degree came at the age of 62, in Urbino in sociology. Then he studied economics, undertaken after the death of his wife, to keep himself busy and quench his need for knowledge. In the nineties, his parenthesis in city public life led him to be, in the center-right quota, the rival of Gianluca Susta in the first direct election of the mayor of Biella: it was 1995 and the head-to-head that privileged the center-left candidate in the ballot was lived in a polite election campaign without the blows under the belt that politics has accustomed observers in recent times.
