Aged 77 today, Pierre Arditi retains some important memories of his father. He revealed that he had in his possession a writing belonging to him, which had a special place in his home. “He sent me a letter one day, which is pinned in front of my desk, which I see every day, where it was marked ‘My son, what are you becoming? We see you there, we see you there, you do this, you do a variety show…‘” he reported.
In the letter, the painter explained to his son that he was going astray wanting to be on all fronts. “The letter was terrible. I’m at the limit…” he remembered, tears in the eyeson the set of It’s up to youbefore continuing:This letter, I keep it because he was right. I was getting lost.
