Michael John Nigel Priestley <br> Editors: Gian Michele Calvi and José I. Restrepo
Michael John Nigel Priestley was born in 1943 and passed away in 2014. He has been a scientist, a designer, a carpenter, a gourmet, a poet and a free man. His influence on the growth of many people and on the evolution of several areas of structural engineering has been enormous. For this reasons, his name has been borrowed to entitle a number of initiatives in earthquake engineering, including an international seminar, a scientific prize, a museum. For this same reason a number of friends, colleagues, fellows and alumni have devised a volume of memories, in which his scientific and human heritage will be presented and discussed from several points of view, in the hope of further disseminating seeds of sapience.
