Interest in medical humanities began at the end of the nineteen eighties with a group of friends (Mauro de Grazia, Roberto Malacrida, Graziano Martignoni, Fabio Merlini, Gianni Tognoni and Franco Zambelloni) discussing ethical topics concerning the relationship between health, sickness and treatment, paying particular attention to problems of suffering, pain and transplants, in the context of questions posed by the relationship between prognosis and destiny. In the course of these preparatory activities prior to establishing the Foundation, various cultural and professional events were organised. The Sasso Corbaro Foundation officially began in the year 2000. It has since set up an Observatory for Training and Research in Medical Humanities (OFREM, Osservatorio per la Formazione e la Ricerca in Etica Clinica e in Medical Humanities), which enables it to pursue its objectives. The founder members were Aramis Andreazzi (fiduciary), Gianni Cattaneo (lawyer), Sergio Grandini (insurer, since deceased) and Roberto Malacrida (physician).

Dopo aver conseguito la maturità scientifica al Liceo di Lugano (premio Maraini) studia fisica al Politecnico Federale di Zurigo dove ottiene il diploma e quindi il dottorato in fisica (1972) con una  tesi teorico-sperimentale sui fenomeni di contatto tra un superconduttore e un metallo normale. Negli Stati Uniti, lavora come “visiting associate professor” (76-77) presso uno dei centri di ricerca più rinomati per lo studio della fisica della materia, gli Ames Laboratories della Iowa State University. Al suo rientro, ottiene la libera docenza all’ETH e quindi la cattedra di fisica all’Università di Neuchâtel. In questo ateneo svolge un’intensa attività di ricerca su materiali e sistemi superconduttori bidimensionali, il cui sottile comportamento sfugge a interpretazioni convenzionali. Questi lavori hanno generato oltre 120 pubblicazioni (due di esse sono citate nella laudatio del Premio Nobel di fisica 2016), 17 tesi di dottorato e numerose collaborazioni internazionali, in particolare con il prestigioso “Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics” di Mosca. Durante due congedi sabbatici, è stato “visiting scientist” al Laboratorio di ricerca IBM di Zurigo (1990) e professore invitato all’Università di Ginevra (2001). Membro del Consiglio della ricerca del FNS (1989-2000), ne ha presieduto la Divisione delle Scienze esatte, naturali e dell’ingegnere.
