Dear Vaurien friends,
I am very sad to inform you that Gianpiero Saggini, our estimated International President and beloved friend, suddenly died on Saturday morning, Aug-18-2012.
It is not rhetoric to say that his entire life evidences that love, belief and enthusiasm may overcome any kind of difficulties. At least, within human possibilities. Let's remember how he succeeded in managing an intense and meaningful life in spite of hard health problems. Nearer to us, let's remember how he succeeded in rescuing Vaurien from the deep crisis of recent years.
He never practiced hopelessness, even if he probably faced it, like all human beings. He will remain an example to us all.
