I met Piero Dello Strologo many years ago in Genova. He was younger than I am today and became the initial inspiration for what, years later, would be established as Centro Primo Levi in New York. I arrived at his office in mid-morning. At his desk, he managed his own business seamlessly together with all sorts of municipal affairs, and his dearest creation, the Centro Culturale Primo Levi. He wanted everyone to know and appreciate Jewish culture, regard Jews as “familiar,” and, at the same time, he wanted to leave a unique imprint on his charming but irreversibly declining port city. He got a kick out of the idea that minority could contribute in major ways to national societies. (Image: Emanuele Dello Strologo)
