I thought if i can give away what i know... then i should do it.
And the second reason is this:
I had some great moments in the last 2 years, i have met fantastic people, made new friends and lived great emotional moments... and this, nobody can take away from me...
As i showed the collection of badges to Mr. Robbiati, he spotted the "la sorrentina" badge... and a great pride engulfed his eyes... he proudly said: "they wanted a golden badge... i sold these in New York".
He looked so happy as he said this, with stars in his eyes and a broad smile on his face.
"If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere"
Here Frank Sinatra in 1982...
For Mr. Robbiati junior, exactly the contrary happened... it made it anywhere and finally made it in New York. (something his father already achieved in the 50ies)
The end of an era... the apotheosis of a carreer...

A last breath of life from a soon bygone era.
