The TEDx community lost a beloved member this week. Giorgio Ungania, organizer and curator of TEDxDubai, passed away on Sunday at age 46. Giorgio was a force of life and an instrumental leader in our community, organizing his first event in 2009, and going on to organize many more events, including TEDxYouth@Dubai and TEDxDubaiChange.

He was a mentor and a friend to so many across the globe. We at TED will miss him greatly. Our thoughts are with his wife, Natascia, his son, Sky and everyone else who knew him.




  1. Still in shock by the sad news… So hard to believe we have lost one of our own. We will miss Giorgio and his spirit will be with us…
    Dear Natascia, please accept my sincere condolences, glad we all celebrated your birthday in Rio with Giorgio… thinking about you. Love, Mojdeh
