Egi Volterrani - architect, writer, set designer, journalist, cook and much more - left us shortly before his 80th birthday.
He was one of the founders - with Predrag Matvejevic', Igor Man, Claudio Magris, Gerardo Marotta, Nedim Gursel, Khaled Fouad Allam and many others - of the Fondazione Mediterraneo in the early 1990s.
Ironical, autoironic, cultured, lazy: many adjectives that can never describe Our Dear Egi.
We remember this with the video testimony on our friend Mario Molinari when the city of Turin dedicated a plaque to the sculptor of colour: even then Egi asked for a chair in the hall of the palace to better articulate words and emotions.
