Re: Tragic News: Passing of our Dear Friend, Maria Agnese Giraudo
I am very sad to hear that Maria Agnese Giraudo has passed away. This
is so unexpected.
I met Agnese at an Open Content conference in Milan, Italy. She
attended as a research librarian specialist, but her interests were much
broader than that. She traveled every year to Tanzania, where she
adopted and mentored a young man, William Wambura, and she supported
many projects as a sponsor and advisor. She hosted me several times at
her home in Santa Marinella, Italy, and many others as well. She greatly
appreciated our work together with Samwel Kongere in Kenya, so much so
that she visited him, I think more than once, and brought him to
Tanzania to help organize and inspire UYOGA. She was very active in
including Africans in Italy, and was very concerned about threats to
democracy in Italy by the Berlasconi government.
She was the daughter of a senator, and she had the heart of a senator.
