Early tomorrow morning I'm off to Matera in Southern Italy for various events in honour of my late brother-in-law Gerardo Guerrieri who died on 24th April thirty years ago. His biography, edited by my niece Selene Guerrieri, will be launched and a cultural centre in his name will be opened in nearby Grottole where he is buried.

I'll be writing about all of this when I get back home in a couple of days. For now, here's a 1965 article in English about Gerardo's work as translator, a photo of the plaque which the city of Matera, his birthplace, will be dedicating, and a photo of Gerardo in a garden, probably in the mid-1970s.
