It happened to me... to be Italian #3.

È meglio scrivere di riso che di lacrime, perché ridere è ciò che è proprio dell'uomo.
Edoardo Sanguineti [1930-2010]

It sounds like 'You'd better write about laughs than tears, because laughs belong to people'.
The Italian poet and writer Edoardo Sanguineti passed away yesterday, due to surgery complications. I've heard him speaking in various public occasions and I'm not afraid to say he was one of the most brilliant and funny intellectuals I've ever seen.
Ciao, Edoardo.
