RIP Umberto Eco

With sadness I learnt that the great Italian novelist (and all bunch of other things) Umberto Eco has passed away today.

I remember seeing and falling in love with the movie adaptation of his first novel “The Name of the Rose” when I was a teenager. A mystery/murder themed story in medieval times starring big talents like Sean Connery. I still remember how much I had enjoyed the movie and the story.

A great novelist, a great mind. May he rest in peace.
