Today is the first day that you are not physically with us any more. You have lived your time, and will always be with us in a timeless age. Through the 20th century you have gone as a true partisan and a passionate scholar, riding until the end the waves with elegance and determination. You have lived moments of inner loneliness, international fame, small and big joys of everyday life. Studying a lot and fighting to understand and discover ancient and new ways, you have been a guide and a master to those who wanted to understand and find themselves. How many among us have you taken in hand? How many glances have you given to the right and left to protect and to keep going? We will always remember you for your desire to know and your humbleness in learning; for your accuracy in work and your determination to gather all the roses of life.
We would have published these lines for our website on March 29, 2018:
today is a special day. It’s your 99th birthday. We want to send you a respectful, huge, gentle hug. While ordering your archive and library that you, with full trust, have given us to preserve its high value, we have had the extraordinary chance to know you even more. Through the documents, beyond your professional competence, we have seen the high determination, the sharp quickness to always get the point, and the strength to keep going in any case of life with a delicate sense of humour. When we have visited you in your home in Paris some days ago, we have felt utterly moved. “Take your time”, Anne… as your necklace pendant always reminds us.
We feel very close to you.
Marco Greco and all the Moreno Museum Association’s members
