“There were multiple dimensions to Davide,

and if you were not paying attention, you often missed most of them.”

Unfortunately we have not the powers to go back in time, we wish we could! What we can certainly do is to leave here a message, a thought, a nice memory of a moment lived with Davide. Something that connect us to him and we do not want to loose or simply something we want to share.

Once Davide wrote, quoting a British author:

“Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.”

So, as long as there will be someone or something able to help us remember his smile and funny laugh, Davide will not have left and will always be with us.

Here, if you want, you can leave your message.

    Do you remember?
