The excerpt above is taken from B. T. Feld’s presentation of the publication, “Lectures on Pions and Nucleons” for the Proceedings of the International School of Physics held in Varenna. These lessons were taught by Enrico Fermi  for the II course on “Questioni sulla rivelazione delle particelle elementari” (Questions about the detection of elementary particles), directed by G. Puppi in 1954 just a few months before Fermi’s death.

“In working on these notes, I have been rewarded by frequently encountering sections which are so unique in their language and approach as to evoke for me, again, the picture of Fermi as he lectured, during those lovely mornings in the beautiful setting of the Villa Monastero on Lake Como.”
