Massimo SALVATORES was not the man of a country, an organization, or a team. Certainly because of his origin, his education, and his culture, Massimo has always favored a broader and more open collaboration instead of a bureaucratic and shortsighted approach to the research, keeping the achievements only to a restricted inner circle. He was convinced that disinterested sharing makes one stronger and Massimo is one of the few nuclear reactor physicists who elevated international collaboration to its highest level. A short history of the major contributions that Massimo made to his dear discipline, Neutronics, will emphasize this peculiar aspect of his career.
