Associate professor Kerstin Bach

Two years have gone since Kerstin came for first time in my office together with Agnar. I have admired her from our first meeting. In the meanwhile, Kerstin has acquired to IDI one of the biggest EU project (SelfBack)  IDI has ever been played a key role in. She is now associate professor and today I get the message that one of the seven strategic NTNU PhD positions is granted to Kerstin (7 out of 68 applications so acceptance rate 10%). Congratulations Kerstin, looking forward to follow your career in the years to come.

Augusto 18.2.1964 – 2.1.1990 #bebrave #laugh #folgoreeeee

Augusto Ferri was born 18/2/1964. He died 9450 days later, the 2/1/1990 if this program counts days correctly. He spent many of these almost 10000 days with me, laughing, eating, drinking, and kissing, driving motobike, ultralight aircraft, sail boat. We also spent a lot of days quarreling with each other about upcoming divergent political ideas, being mischievous and faithless as young and less young people can be. I  remember clearly our first date, sometimes in late 1979, the two of us running in the military exercise paths of paratroopers of Fologore in Pisa, clothes dirty wth slime, faces aching for too much laughing, metallic voices in the background shouting “Folgore!”. I do not write rest in peace, Augusto. You never rest in peace, you are alive with me and many other friends for almost three decades now, since you left us. We still laugh at your  jokes (Ah Pisciarooooo!) and we try to be brave in life.

#motherday #festadellamamma #olavaolaspacca

Oggi in Norvegia e’ la festa della mamma e i negozi e facebook pullulano di Gratulerer med Morsdagen. Qui nessuno ha detto “ba” e quando ho osato dire “E’ la festa della mamma” mi rispondono i miei figlioli, uno dopo l’altro, in pisano stretto “Si ma in Norvegia” con quella bella G strasci’ata.

Ho anche letto un altro libro brutto, Voi non la conoscete di Cristina Comencini. Non c’entra granche’ con la festa della mamma, ma e’ un libro tipo la Figlia Sbagliata che mi chiedo ma perche’ si scrive un libro cosi’? Per levare la speranza al lettore che si puo’ essere felici nonostante qualcuno tra i tuoi antenati, o tu stesso ha fatto qualche errore, non ha amato abbastanza in passato? Possibile che ci sia, ma io non sono riuscita a cogliere nemmeno una goccia di positivita’ in questo libro. Morale io ora vado in piscina, anche se non mi sento granche’ bene, o la va o la spacca, diceva il mi’ babbo in questi casi. Gratulerer med svømmedagen Letizia! 700.jpg

#calzemaglie

letizia-jaccheri1e’ stata una giornata intensa, ho incontrato un ministro, due rettori e tanta gente importante e intelligente. quello che mi resta pero’ e’ che ero andata a lavorare con le calzemaglie e il cappotto sopra, sapendo di avere gia’ il vestito attaccato alla gruccia in ufficio. ma quando sono arrivata trafelata, sono andata alla macchinetta a farmi il caffe e li’ mi son tolta quasi del tutto il cappotto. Et voila’ un professore e direttore in calzemaglie a Gløshaugen non si era mai visto. Per fortuna c’era solo una collega, che credo ci ridera’ per mesi. Ci ho riso tutto il giorno da sola a ricordarmi che anche se ho cinquant’anni mi sento sempre io, come quando la mamma ci metteva il grembiule bianco col fiocco sulle calzemaglie, per far prima e via!

#Lascuolacattolica #Ila #Luteranchurch #weddings

I am reading an Italian book titled “La Scuola Cattolica”. More than 1000 pages, I have only read 10%, it is an important book. But. There is a 1000 pages but. I get  depressed by the past, by contractions and brutality. It is somehow like Ferrante, but very masculine in the bad sense and I feel I have understood very little of the time I had lived in (70, 80, etc.). Today I read that the Norwegian Church will allow homosexual weddings in the Church from 1.2.17, beautiful picture with Lars, the priest here at Ila. #Allyouneedislove (sing like in #stranamore for those who remember). Che faccio vado avanti con la Scuola Cattolica?likekjonnet-vielse
