PAUL NASH NON C'E' PIU' ...

Sono veramente dispiaciuta per la morte di Paul Nash, grandissimo amico di Massimo che ho conosciuto solamente per email, purtroppo.

Il grande sito lon line su Ulrichs, frutto del suo lavoro e di quello del suo compagno di vita Michael, rimane uno dei pilastri fondamentali per la presa di coscienza della nostra ( glbtqi) storia come popolo, storia ancora troppo poco conosciuta dalla stragrande maggioranza dei gay.

Al suo compagno di tutta una vita mando tutto il mio affetto: è sempre difficile vivere senza più chi si ama.

Ringrazio Roberto Massari per questa notizia, che ci permette di conoscere e ricordare.

Dear Michael,
there are no words that can fill the empty place left by somebody one has loved.
I feel so sorry for not having had the opportunity to visit you both last year, during the summer, when I was in the States trying to promote the Rosso Gayardo, the wine that you both drank in front of the cemetery where Ulrichs is buried.
I think that personally I'll keep this memory of Paul, a peaceful and happy memory.
And I am very grateful to you for having informed me of this sad event.
I'll tell you something.
Tomorrow (friday 14th) there will be in Rome a meeting to commemorate the recent death of Giovanni Buzi (an author of mine, good friend, relatively young - a tumor in that case too).
Giovanni was introduced to me by Massimo Consoli and he was well-known in the Glbt community for some of his novels. His companion (Laurent) is a Belgian whom I know since a long time. He has invited me to say something in memory of Giovanni and I think that a good part of the Roman Glbt community will be present. Well, I'll look for the right moment to say few words also in memory of Paul.
I know that it is nothing, compared to the inexorability of death, but I still believe in symbolic actions. And in this case the symbol will connect two grievances and it will fly across the Ocean.Let's remain in contact.
Un abbraccio.
Roberto Massari
