The first picture shows us with Paolo Farinella and his family in his temporary apartment in Bergamo as he awaits a heart transplant. We are happy to report that Paolo seems in fine spirits and better physical condition than one might expect. We then spent a couple of days, with Al Harris, travelling to Lake Iseo, Lago di Garda, Arco (where the unheralded cliff-top castle sits), and Vicenza, where Francesco Marzari led us on a walking tour of the old city. Early during the DPS meeting, Clark received the Sagan Medal in a grand hall of Padova University and posed, with Lynda, in front of Galileo's chair. Other DPS-period scenes include Venice, the Bierhaus et al. poster, and the post-DPS Galileo-epoch dinner for the DPS Committee and guests.
After DPS, we spent time in the Roero and Barolo wine districts southeast of Torino, hosted by Enzo and Giana Zappala. A celebration at the Barolo castle resulted from Ted Bowell's naming of a large asteroid after the town of Barolo. Many bottles of fine Barolo wine were opened in thanks.
