He invites friends for a party that he has planned at his Italian restaurant on 11 March 2021, 10 years from the day of the earthquake. His friends are bewildered by this sudden invitation and begin to talk about his intentions. Who would venture to drink together on a day when the disaster area is shrouded in solemnity.
