In morte di un amico, un pezzo della cultura locarnese che se ne va

Si è spento all’età di 82 anni Giancarlo Bertelli  uno dei principali artefici del rilancio del Teatro di Locarno di cui fu direttore dal 1990 al 2012


For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind. (John Donne)

La campana ha suonato per un caro amico: Giancarlo Bertelli. “Gentiluomo della cultura e protagonista riservato”.

No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
John Donne
