Christmas is dead!

The best band in the world: Natale, Pietro and Ferdinando!

Yes, Christmas is dead, literally! ūüė•

We could hardly believe it when our friend Ferdinando informed us that Natale had passed away. Natale is the Italian word for Christmas, just to explain to those who don’t know it. But it was also more than that. It was our dear friend’s name.

We had spent a wonderful time with Natale and Ferdinando a few years ago, and we’ll all remember the night when we played music together, forever. We were the “Best band of the world”!

Natale’s lake and island

Natale had lived in an exceptional place in the woods of central Italy. With his own small sweet water lake and an even smaller island. I still remember how much fun I had exploring everything in Natale’s garden. Natale was an artist and so his garden was filled up with all kinds of statues, pieces of art, rubbish that he upcycled and more. Perfect for a young boy and his adventures.

Ciao Natale, buon viaggio, ci mancherai! ūüė•
