Support Aeon Donate now A few years ago, my husband was contacted by genealogists tracking descendants of rabbis from the Lithuanian shtetl of Kelm. The impoverished little town was known for its fierce schools of Talmudic learning, or yeshivas; it was a centre of Mussar — a strict system of ethics based on logic and the rigorous practice of mindfulness, a meditative approach to self-reflection and prayer. The massive genealogy we ultimately received by email spanned five continents, 16 generations and almost years of grief. Some 6, Jews had sought refuge behind the fortified walls.
First, put a 1 pound package of Mueller's spaghetti in a large pot of rapidly boiling water. Allow to cook for 45 minutes to an hour, or until most of the water has evaporated.

When I was in my early teens, I went to a neighborhood Italian restaurant in the Bronx, and ordered spaghetti. The waiter brought me a bowl of strange-looking stringy things covered with tomato sauce.
What has happened to our field since our first conference 20 years ago cannot be considered without examining the more troubling question of how the world has changed—since I have less than 15 minutes, I will not attempt to objectively summarize that question, but say that speaking subjectively, the world seems more fragile and imperiled than it did in the mid eighties.

I've always loved the painting and have been looking at it for over a half-century beginning with a penny print I bought in kindergarten.
It was in terrible shape, covered with mold and dirt and darkened by centuries of wear and bad restoration — Nevertheless the genius that Leonardo had invested in the work showed through and could not be denied.
I had occasion to visit Milan frequently because I was doing a lot of work for Olivetti, at that time one of the most progressive of all European industrial concerns. In the eighties they initiated a complete restoration of the painting. Sadly, Olivetti is no longer an extraordinary example of how a corporation could be a good citizen as well as a profitable business, in fact it no longer exists.
On one of my visits to Italy, they arranged for me to visit the painting in the process of being restored. An attractive middle aged matron in a brown business suit was concentrating her attention on the face of Christ, high above the floor on a scaffold that had been constructed next to the painting.
I say painting instead of fresco because, as many of you know, the Last Supper was an experiment in using untested pigments and binders that Leonardo was interested in. This is one of the reasons the work has fared so badly since it was first created.
Pinin Brambilla Barcillon, who had the incredible responsibility of restoring the work single handedly, motioned me up the scaffold alongside her, inches away from the head of Christ, the centerpiece of the painting towards which all forms converged — I cannot describe my emotions as I realized the privilege of seeing Leonardo's work from a vantage point that few will ever have.
