In this short paper I celebrate the life of Lidia Barbanera. Lidia was among the historical colleagues from my own old institute (Laboratorio di Astrofisica Spaziale, CNR). We started to collaborate directly beginning in 1984 when I organized the first historical Frascati Workshop on "Multifrequency Behaviour of Galactic Accreting Sources". Lidia was the workshop secretary, and the factotum during the preparation and administration of the event. Only Lidia and I were involved in the organization of such "new multifrequency workshops".
This brief remembrance does not list the many important contributions of Lidia within the many activities of my institute, but simply paints his humanity through a few episodes of daily life that will stay in my mind forever.
