Maria Organtini

Augusto met Maria Organtini in 1984 on occasion of an informative week related to the Bahà'ì world community. In fact, he was interviewed by her for Radio Base Lombardia. From then on there was a beautiful relationship that brought him to become a member of the Circle of Poets and Artists of Monza and Brianza, a very profound relationship lasting until his passing on and still today.
In 1995 Maria Organtini wrote the following poem that is dedicated to him:

THE JOURNEY

Superi le barriere del tempo
con gagliardo vigore
nutrito alla fiamma della Fede.
Come un nocchiero attento
valichi gli scogli dell'indifferenza
e punti dritto alla meta.

É bello guardare il tuo volto
dove i segni dell'anima s'identificano
con i segni dell'eta' e da questi
traggono forza e vigore.

Tanto amore per l'umanita'
tanto ardore nella Fede
accompagnano il tuo viaggio.
Amico che passi di qui
non dimenticare quest'anima.

Maria Organtini

To Augusto Robiati with gratitude - Monza, November 3rd 1995
