My Collaboration with Cuban Physicists

My first meeting with the scientific Cuban community was in 1969 when the first of four young Cuban physicists, Joaquín Torres Orosco, came to the Physics Department of Parma University through the ‘Andrea Levialdi Fellowship,’ an Italian bursary promoted by Roberto Fieschi using a fund, subscribed to voluntarily by the Italian physics community.
