Goodbye, Lucio

Leo Goretti 5 December 2011

On Saturday 3 December, Lucio Magri was laid to rest in Recanati, together with his beloved wife Mara. "Lucio and Mara together forever," says the memorial plaque. In his last will, Magri asked forgo an official funeral. Thus, his friend Famiano Crucianelli simply read his last letter to the dozens of friends who gathered to say goodbye; then, Mozart's "Requiem" was played.

Magri has also been remembered by the youth movement of the Greek coalition Synaspismos during a demonstration against austerity. The young Greeks paid tribute to him by singing the traditional left-wing song "Bandiera Rossa":
