On August 23 we lost one of our oldest and dearest friends in Cortona, the beloved Gino. Countless generations of UGA Cortona students knew him, and played bocce, danced, learned some Italian, stomped grapes, and attended Sagre with him. He loved UGA and the students he met over the years; he took care of our buildings and our grounds and many of us as well. If you have a story or a remembrance of Gino, please post it here, and if you have photos to share, message them to us and we’ll include them in this album. RIP Gino, UGA Cortona will not be the same without you…

CIAO will forward remembrances posted here to Gino’s family. To see more photos and memories of Gino visit the UGA Cortona Facebook page, the window linking to it is always displayed here in the bottom right.
