Raffaella Carrà is dead, mourning in the entertainment world. To make it known Sergio Iapino, who gave the sad announcement by joining the pain of the adored nephews Federica and Matteo, of Barbara, Paola and Claudia Boncompagni, of lifelong friends and closest collaborators. “Raffaella left us. She went to a better world, where her humanity, her unmistakable laugh and her extraordinary talent will shine forever”, Iapino’s words. The great artist, 78 years old, passed away at 16.20 today, after an illness that for some time had attacked her body so tiny yet so full of overflowing energy. Her unstoppable force, which imposed her at the top of the world star system, an iron will that never abandoned her until the end, making sure that nothing of her deep suffering leaked out. Yet another gesture of love towards her audience and towards those who shared her affection, so that her personal ordeal would not disturb the luminous memory of her. A woman out of the ordinary yet endowed with unsettling simplicity, she had not had children but children – she always said – she had thousands of them, like the 150 thousand made to adopt at a distance thanks to ‘Love’, the program that most of all remained in her heart. The funeral will be defined shortly. In her latest dispositions, Raffaella asked for a simple unfinished wooden coffin and an urn to hold her ashes. In the saddest hour, always unique and inimitable, like her overwhelming laugh.
