Che cosa si può dire di una ragazza morta a venticinque anni?
Che era bella. E simpatica. Che amava Mozart e Bach. E i Beatles. E me. Una volta che mi aveva messo specificamente nel mucchio con tutti quei tizi musicali, le chiesi l'ordine di preferenza, e lei rispose sorridendo: «Alfabetico.» Sul momento sorrisi anch'io.
