    Have either of you ever visited Basilica di San Pietro in Ciel d’Oro where both St Augustine and Boethius are buried? I think it is not far from a Milan but found this pair being buried near each other in the same Basilica as very fitting

    Yes, in Pavia the capitol of the Lombard kings with the famous Certosa. I’ve only once been there for an afternoon–lunch with a recent PhD in politics who had written a dissertation–what a waste of time–on the Straussians. Lovely lunch and a tour of the city with her and her husband. On another occasion I was taken by Eugenio Corti to see the Certosa.
