"I am writing this because I have been invited to do so, the occasion being a tribute to my husband Franco, Ferenc to his friends in Hungary, and having started there as a graphic designer Ferenc Pintér has become his signature. I should make it clear that I do not usually write about myself or my loved ones, I have never filled out a single page of a diary in my entire life because it has always seemed dangerous to me to immortalise my thoughts! However, this is a unique opportunity to take a full portrait of the man that many people know professionally, but whom only I have been close to for 45 years. The meeting took place in the Mondadori offices in Via Bianca di Savoia 20 in Milan, back in August 1960, I had just finished my high school exams, Ferenc Pintér had been working for a few months in the Artistic Editorial Office and was already a popular. I would see him playing football between the drawing tables with paper balls (he was much less talented at football than at painting), at other times he would hold checkers tournaments, which he often won, and in the remaining time he would produce splendid ink drawings, the famous 'little windows' that advertised detective stories and other soon-to-be-published books. I, apart from Anita Klinz, our boss, was the only woman, Pintér the only bachelor, so colleagues jokingly invited us to get to know each other better."
