One of the Medical monuments and memories in the University central seat, in Pavia, is the marble memorial tablet to the memory of Saint Riccardo Pampuri who studied medicine in this University from 1915 to 1921. He graduated on the 6th July 1921, with a doctoral thesis on the "Determination of the arterial pressure with a new sphygmomanometer".
The italian inscription on the tablet reads as follows: "BENIGNO QUI ANCORA SPIRI L'AMORE / DI CUI SI INFIAMMO' IN MODO ERICO / ERMINIO PAMPURI / ALUNNO ESEMPLARE E MITISSIMO / DI QUESTA UNIVERSITA' / ORA ELEVATO AGLI ONORI DEGLI ALTARI / E INVOCATO CON IL NOME DI / S.RICCARDO / DELL'ORDINE OSPEDALIERO / FATEBENEFRATELLI / QUANTI NE SEGUONO LE ORME / SENTANO COSTANTE LA SUA PROTEZIONE / TRIVOLZIO / 2.8.1897 / MILANO / 1.5.1930".
