    The Italians are Coming! The Italians are Coming!

    Just to mention what a great pleasure it was to meet Dalmazio Frau and his friends Alberto and Massimiliano, who came to Paris this week. We had a wonderful time together and I'm still drinking the wine and liquor they so kindly brought, while feasting my eyes on the great painting of Elric which Dal gave me. And thanks again for the lunch, pards! I still feel it should have been my treat!

    In case anyone is wondering, Dalmazio Frau is the artist who painted the cover for the Elric of Melnibonأ© audiobook. His website is here:

    Favourite quote from his website: "Now illustration is finished and Conner, my cat, can sleep on it. Having a cat who appreciate your works is essential in this job."

          We are really happy and proud to have known Mike, Linda and all the cats. We have had really a beautiful time with all of them.
          Hoping we can see Mike, Linda and his tailed pards in Italy soon and in a good health.
          Italian wine is a good cure for the pain in the world. But "limoncello" and "Genepy" are really great medicine.
          :clap:
          About my ancestors, I didn't know anything about an italian family Frau as juggler in Munich in the '30's but this new is very, very interesting and funny.
          My family in that period was in Italy in Sardegna ( our ancestore probably were spanish, catalan nobles in the XVI with the Emperor Charles V, from my grandmothers we are nobles, but from my grandfather I think not ), were my grandfather ( I have known him a little bit when I was a child, he died when I was 7 ) was a Mayor i a little town during Fascism. And her brother was papal legate with the Pacelli Pope.
          Then arrived my father who has broken with the tradition of our family and at the end I'm arrived me to destry it at all.
          So that's all folks! :clap: :lol:
          Thank you again and thank you for your beautiful words about my art

                        This thread is making me feel very nostalgic. There was a time when I spent months on end in the north of Italy with my brother in law and his family. Wonderful people, food, wine. Great memories. Must get myself back there soon!

                        Glad you all had fun!

                          I'm be going to North Tuscany for a week in August. Really need it.
                          Pontremoli area within sight of the Carrara mountains. And plunging the old body into salt waters around Lerici or San Terenzo (Liguria).
                          Any Moorcockistas around?
