Saturday, May 7, 2016
from the Po to the Everest Last day at Bologna.
The installation at the DuepuntiLab Gallery was a great success. Italian friends made many beautiful flags that will go to the Everest with the other flags from the Mississippi, Yangtze, Ganga, Amazon, Fraser...I've been blessed with the light, food, friendship, and laughter in Bologna, by Bologna artists: Guy Lydster, Simone, Paoblo, Alessandro, Lucia, Cornelia... Can't wait to come back in September.
· Under the river flags, around the river stone sculptures by Guy Lydster, hundreds of people gathered. The Cultural Minister of Bologna introduced us, and I read the sonnet crown with my two lovely translater Vennessa and Margeritta. Before that gathering, Guy took me to the river where we found a bomb, rusty, almost fossil. after the opening, I was treated with the most delicious tortellini and tortelloni.
