He related how a few days earlier, when he was visiting the Museo di Capodimonte in Naples with the museum director, a little boy who seemed very struck by all the beauty around him came up to them and asked, “What’s the most important thing in this museum?” and the director’s wonderful reply was, “Your presence, so it’s you.”
