Remembrance on Facebook
On her birthday of the year in which she took her own life, August 5, 2016, Elena dedicated a photo and a Facebook post to her. “My Mum was a mosaic. She was a woman made up of many, many things, often very different from each other, but all equally crucial to describe her today” she wrote that day “Mum was made up of big dreams, brilliant intuitions, contradictions, utopias and a thousand concerns for herself and for others. She was indomitable and fragile at the same time, she was endowed with unique courage, strength and determination. Mom was a creative, passionate, fickle woman who lived with impetus every aspect of the world she had built for and with us”. Then a series of personal memories: “As soon as you distracted your attention, Mom would plant a geranium for you somewhere, adopt a dog or stock up on detergents ‘which don’t go bad.’ She was the queen of mayonnaise and homemade pizza, Russian salad, veal with tuna sauce, and apple pie…even if the latter sometimes didn’t cook well and got pissed off” Elena said before concluding “For some people it was incomprehensible And . But not for us. Mama was a lioness, sweet and terrible in equal measure, and we all, both of her families, loved her just as she was.”
