Fabio Picchi 1954-2022

Fabled across nations
A good man, a golden man, is gone
Bringer of joy, of sublime food,
Intense, generous,
Open handed, open hearted.

Pillar of the kindness of the world,
In Firenze, in Teatro del Sale,
Caring, sharing food with strangers,
Changing them into friends through
His alchemical transformation:
Insisting “Eat, eat, it is good!”
