The hero of implant dentistry, the legend who fought and won against the many obstacles placed in his path, the person who respected the opinions of his colleagues, the lighthouse of world implantology, the dear friend we will never forget who left us much too early on January 26, 2017.
We wanted him to live forever.  He will live forever in our hearts and those of our profession. 
With sincere gratitude and devotion we salute you, our beloved Leonard.
Future generations of colleagues and patients will always benefit from your brilliant insights and innovations.

NuovoGISI is an educational organization founded to maintain the principles of Dr. Giordano Muratori.  

Dr. Muratori, of Bologna, developed many endosseous screw type and blade implants.  He authored several books and contributed many manuscripts on oral implantology to dental journals.  He founded the GISI, which lasted over 30 years.
NuovoGISI organizes webinars and conducts short CE courses.  The goal of NuevoGISI is the expansion of the concept of multi-modal implant dentistry and related practices, without the involvement of commercial interests.
