ICTP has honoured the memory of Luigi Stasi by dedicating a lecture room to him. Stasi worked closely with ICTP founders Abdus Salam and Paolo Budinich to establish ICTP, as well as other international research institutes, in Trieste.

Stasi's ICTP-related achievements included:

•    was secretary of the Local Restricted Committee, which was formed in Trieste to facilitate the establishment of ICTP;
•    helped compose the agreement that was eventually signed between ICTP, IAEA and the Italian government;
•    oversaw the bidding and other administrative tasks related to the acquisition of land and architectural services for the design of the ICTP building;
•    as president of the Istituto Autonomo Case Popolari (IACP), oversaw implementation of the construction of ICTP's Galileo guesthouse.

The Luigi Stasi Seminar Room was officially dedicated at a ceremony on 26 February.
