In Venice, quite close to a canal I and BM met with Mr Arrigo (Harry) Cipriani. He then ruled Harry´s Bar down there by the Canal Grande. We learned to know his story, his sorrow and his joy. I remember Mr Cipriani as a very nice, though somewhat shy man. Pleasant-mannered. And welldressed as you can see. We had a cup of coffee and it was twenty minutes past ten. The 29th of April in 2003. Don´t know if he still rules that Bar. Came to read about Mr Arrigo and his son in Vanity Fair this week.
