Prof. Lozano shared that talking about Norberto Bobbio should talk about himself because for 30 years of communication Bobbio had left in him a stamp of personality not only as a scientist but also as a person. The Italian professor began its story from the far 1959 when he had sit for examination to Bobbio for the first time. He presented his life in a historical plan telling interesting details, facts and personal experiences from his lively contact with Bobbio.
