Luigi Meneghello has passed away

This morning Luigi Meneghello has been found dead in his house in Thiene my birth city. Another great man behing a great writer passed the black river. He his almost known in all the world for his book “Libera nos a Malo”, which is the last sentences of Holy father pray. But Malo is also the name of the town where I currently live after get married, so the sentence also mean “set us free from Malo”. I think that his best book  “Libera Nos a Malo”, t describes very well Italy after the second world war, in the so called “boom” period where the rural society as moved to the industrial and monetized one. The characters are greatly described and the main figures in the city: the priest, the city chef, the teacher are a great representation of a way of thinking that is still permeating our Veneto. Goodbye Luigi, even if it is not necessary you’re justified your life.
