To my great sadness, my brother Luca passed away the other day. He was the most wonderful, generous and creative person. We were very close and I will miss him terribly. Here Luca is painting in his studio in Viterbo days before his death.
We decided to have a big get together with my brother and sisters, nieces and nephews to celebrate Luca’s life.
It was a beautiful day in Zürich and everybody brought a dish. The table was overfilled with the most delicious plates.
It was difficult to get all the dishes in the picture!
Don Mario, Don Michele and Don Sergio giving the food a big ‘ tic’
We sat together remembering all sorts of stories about Luca. He lived such a full life all over the world, painting wherever he lived, finally also setting up an art school in Dili, East Timor.

We had a mass of old photographs of Luca. Vera, Mario and Sambo looking and remembering.
Some of us sat in the garden.
It was a very beautiful day, so sad but with lots of amazing memories.
I will miss you Luca xxx
