Yesterday, my dear friend Franco Ruta left this world.
He was a brilliant man, the world had been introduced by him (through his Bonajuto bakery in Modica) to his chocolate and the traditions of this beautiful city.
Tireless and a real powerhouse of ideas, he taught me to love Sicily and its inhabitants.
A person of great generosity, he always supported the authentic values of quality and he cultivated relationship with honest and virtuous people.
He gave me a lot, not only his great products but also precious historical information and real life confession, without expecting anything in return.
Thank you, dear Franco.
I am thinking of you with a lot of affection and I am close to you in the continuation of your journey.
My deepest condolences to his beloved son, his family members and to those who were fortunate enough to stand by him.
