Elio has flown away


The title of this sad post is the message that arrived this morning via SMS from Elio’s brother, Sergio Molino, announcing his death. Elio worked for us as a tractor driver for more than three years, he knew the motors better than their makers, listened to the machines and treated them with kindness, making them human.

I hate words at times like this, so I would like to remember him simply, with this photograph.

Goodbye, gentle giant.
