Silvio died recently in a motorcycle accident. He was one of the signatories for the popular law for a Clean Parliament, together with myself and many other friends of the Meetup in Roma. One never knows quite what to say in such situations. Sooner or later, Parliament will once again be clean. And that’s a promise.
Arianna remembers him as follows.

"It late already, but Silvio is no longer here. I will never again see those sincere, piercing eyes that looked upon the world with love and vitality. And all because of a motorcycle accident, one of those that leave you no chance of survival.
I am mourning for a true friend, one that was always sincere, and someone that was always telling me that you should not smoke during your pregnancy, someone who watched over and loved my two tykes with an endless love. Someone that, notwithstanding …., came along anyway on the 25th April and worked alongside his best friend Valerio, purely because of their friendship, nothing more and nothing less. Friendship alone. Those same eyes that were like a wide open window looking out over the world, those same eyes that looked at what was happening around us, those oh so big eyes have now been closed forever.
If there is a God, and if He is watching now, he must also surely hear the profound cry of pain coming from all of us, from the person who called me on the telephone, crying and sniffing... you are unjust, you are unfair, unjust and cruel. That is if God even exists.
I am in pain, I’m alone and I’m far from those that are near him.
Silvio, because of the deep love I have for you, my hope is that you can fearlessly race on a motorcycle made of dreams and fresh air and ride off into an infinite eternity.
I will never again eat your “Arrabbiata” sauce and you will never again prepare that Roman dish for me, the one whose name I cannot remember because of the tears.
I will never see you again.
It is not right... but, my great little friend, I loved you so very much, I remember you wherever we went together and I am writing this because I am unable to shout out loud the terrible pain that I feel inside. The twins are sleeping in the room next door and I promise that, one day, they will know that they once had someone who protected them while they were in the womb by scolding their silly mother because of her stupid habits.
Say hi to the light on my behalf, Silvio... and, dear friend, please drop and pay us a visit if you can, be the gentle breath of the breeze that caresses my cheeks at sunset. I will know that it is you and I’ll smile at you." Arianna

Salve sono Italiano ma vivo in Australia e non capisco come un stronzo come Beppe Grillo deve rovinare la reputazione degli Italiani all'estero
