The department then collectively laid flowers on Pareto's gravestone and, following a quick visit to a nearby cemetery where the Welsh actor Richard Burton, and his barman, are also buried, adjourned to the local auberge where they were joined by the mayor of Céligny.
Most students, while aware of the importance of Pareto's work to the profession, had been unaware that he was buried so close to the Institute, and within the Canton of Geneva.
A brief group excursion from Geneva was thus (hopefully) transformed into a significant journey of intellectual discovery or rediscovery, both of Vilfredo Pareto, and of our peers.
