Biography

1932     returns to Italy, appointed director of the Italian Cryptogamic Laboratory in Pavia

1936     appointed professor of botany at the Academy for Agriculture and Forestry in Florence

1942     appointed professor of botany at the University of Pavia

Well, I was surprised when I started finding so many publications by Ciferri (who I hadn't heard of at the time), but The Dictionary of the Fungi says that he has more than a thousand [I don't want to even start doing the math on how many that is per year], so obviously I've only got the tip of the iceberg here. He went on collecting expeditions to Cuba and the Dominican Republic and published quite a bit on the fungi he found there, publishing also on yeasts, smuts, and fungal pathogens of humans.
