“I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.” Obi-Wan
Much has been written about Marco Zamperini today and many people knew him much more than I did so this won’t be a fitting salute to the man that helped shape the Internet in Italy. However such is the overwhelming sensation of loss in this small yet profoundly close-knit community of technology professionals, oddly reminiscent of something from a Star Wars film, that I feel compelled to add my own, sad farewell to a father, husband and genius I had the privilege of meeting at my partner’s home last year.
Farewell Marco and thank you for a life dedicated to innovation, optimism and guidance.
