A real teacher cannot be forgotten and no matter what his absence will hurt forever. You taught me so much in such a short time and at the age of 16 there were many things I didn't understand. In the confusion of a room filled up with hungry students of all ages I will never forget the look in your eyes grabbing my hand to come to the front with you. I was living far from any big city and I did feel so little between all that crowd I wasn't used to be around. We did not share a word outside the classroom and the only thing you wanted to know from me was my name. Your style, your movement, your passion , your energy literally everything about you was just not human. You taught me shapes and heights are important only to superficial eyes. The best of me today is because of you. And when times get hard, your absence becomes my weakness. I miss your teaching, your speech, being in a class with you and watch you dance. I passed from hating you for being so hard on me to having a bad teenager crush to finally see you for what you really are. Everything I teach today is because of you. I miss you so much and I can't find peace with the fact that you gone. It has been two years and I spend hours trying to find videos of you teaching hoping someone recorded you talking as well. Your voice calms me down and gives me security. I don't own anything. You gave me all I can use. And I know anyone you taught to feels the same. I love you so much and if you had no clue of it while you were teaching me I hope wherever you are right now you can finally see how many lives you changed. Mi manchi troppo Silvio.
