Amarcord

May 23 2017

If you search IMDB.com (the Internet Movie Data Base), you will find a movie by Federico Fellini titled “Amarcord”.
It is a nostalgia movie, about life in a small Italian town, back in the 1930’s.
The town is located in Romagna, a region of Italy known for its robust cuisine, fast sportcars (Ferrari), and fiery tempers.
“Amarcord” is not an Italian word, but it comes from the dialect of that land.

It translates in English as “I remember”, but (like in every translation) some nuances are lost.

Literally, it means “I remember with longing”.

Since this is a Blog, we will not only deal with scientific remarks and commentaries.

We will also add something to reflect the human side of all this.
Like the special people we have met along the way.
Like the tortuous paths and the dead ends which punctuate any scientific effort in a field as fluid as Chiari.
This something has added spice to our journey so far and we want to share it with all of you.

So, Amarcord…
