Dino Tonini was educated at Padova University, where he also submitted a PhD thesis in 1927. He was there appointed lecturer of hydraulic structures in 1942, after having been with the hydrologic Service until 1930, with Società Adriatica di Eletricitta Venezia until 1936, and with Compagnie Italo-Belge d'Electricité in Brussels until 1940. Tonini was then a vicedirector with a hydraulic engineering office from 1940 to 1944, during which the Pieve di Cadore Dam north of Belluno was designed. From 1951 he lectured hydrology at Padova University and there was appointed in 1962 professor of hydrology. Tonini had talents in the organization by serving as the president of the International Association of Scientific Hydrology IASH; or presiding over the Italian National Commission of the hydrologic decennium. Tonini also served as editor of the main Italian hydraulics journal L'Energia Elettrica for 15 years. A bronze plaque was mounted in 1976 to commemorate the outstanding contributions of Tonini for his city, his region and his country.
\
Tonini was not just a hydrologist, although his research was confined to this branch of water sciences. As noted from his career, Tonini was a hydraulic engineer with knowledge in dam design and river engineering, whose work was both scientifically well based and directed to applications mainly in northern Italy. He was also one of the few persons that were able to communicate in both French and English, as is seen from his publications. Following visits to Belgium, he was well acquainted with a number of languages that allowed simpler communication. Tonini remains the outstanding hydrologist particularly for his posthumously published 1983 book. It contains the following chapters over almost 1000 pages: Data analysis, Atmosphere, Precipitations, Discharges, Groundwater, Surface waters - hydraulic and physical characteristics.
