Robert Sheckley teleconference with Ray Bradbury in Bergamo

Roberto Quaglia
Robert Sheckley speaks via teleconference with Ray Bradbury in the occasion of Bradbury's 80th birthday.
This happened in Bergamo in July 2000.
But why actually in Bergamo?
During his "genovese" period, when Robert Sheckley was living in Italy as a guest of Roberto Quaglia, suddenly Ray Bradbury became 80 years old, and people of Bergamo, Italy, had earlier invited Bradbury to Bergamo. But in the last moment Bradbury didn't go, and knowing that Sheckley was in Italy, people of Bergamo decided to invite him so that Bradbury could speak with someone in a videoconference. This is the video of that unique - and to some extent bizarre - event.
