ABSTRACT
In this short obituary for Gino Giugni some relevant events in his academic life are recalled, using the metaphor of the journey. The first significant journey took Gino Giugni to the USA in 1951, holding a Fulbright fellowship. On that occasion he met Federico Mancini, with whom he shared, later on, a similar attitude both in scholarly work and in policy-making. Gino Giugni was initially a professor at the University of Ban, where he acted as an innovator in teaching labour law. He collaborated with Otto Kahn-Freund and other leading labour lawyers from various countries in setting up a group devoted to comparative research. He was also a State minister in the early 1990s. In that capacity he met Robert Reich, who was himself minister in the Clinton administration. After teaching at the University of Rome "Sapienza", he moved to LUISS, a private university in Rome, where he once more created a stimulating interdisciplinary environment. Journeys are meant to be a mataphor of intellectual freedom and of questions waiting for answers. They are also an indicator of a lively and unique academic discourse.
