In 1970 and 1971, he was a Summer Visiting Scientist at Bell Telephone Laboratories in Murray Hill, NJ. Since 1980 he has been a full professor of Electrochemistry at the University of Rome. In the fall of 1990, he was the George T. Piercy Distinguished visiting professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at the University of Minnesota. In the fall of 1991, he was a Visiting Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at the University of Pennsylvania. In 1996, he received the title of Doctor in Science, “honoris causa,” Hon. Dsc., from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.

For the term 1988-1991, he was vice-president and president of the International Society of Solid-State Ionics; in 1996-1998, president of the Italian Chemical Society; and since 1989, a member of the Italian Commission of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). He was elected in 2000 as a vice-president of The Electrochemical Society. In 1997, he received the Research Award of the ECS Battery Division.
