Chapter 34

Cortina D’Ampezzo, Italy

Mariangela and Leilac woke up in hotel Le Ali Del Frassino, Peschiera del Garda. The previous afternoon, they took part in a tasting with Zenato wines. The fun extended into the night at a fireside dinner at the home of a family they met the same day. At the time of the Covid-19 pandemic, such merriment would have been forbidden. Defying the rules was almost a necessity for Leilac’s mental-health survival.
They meet the board of the company in Desenzano del Garda to sign a mutual-NDA and discuss some patents.
Leilac leveraged the business with the documents he obtained from Sacra Corona Unita when he was with Ilaria in Polignano al Mare.
A black BMW 520 D was on Leilac tail after the visit to the company in Desenzano del Garda. But Leilac and Mariangela, who were inside the Strada Della Forda, had fun while driving through a series of tunnels dug out of the mountains. They maneuvered their car to get rid of their tails. The BMW 520 had stayed behind in a very fun way.
In Cortina d’ Ampezzo, Leilac and Mariangela met Anamaria and a few of her friends. Giulia, Anamaria’s friend, was an old acquaintance of Leilac. He met years ago in Quinta do Lago, Algarve.
Despite the restrictions caused by the pandemic, the quartet had a great time in Cortina d’Ampezo, especially in Lago di Bràies.
Leilac bought a Cazu Marzu, a traditional cheese of Sardegna that was banned by the European Union because it contained live maggots.
