Farewell to the tv icon
Tears, emotion, prolonged applause but also joy and smiles. So Italy today gave its last farewell to Raffaella Carrà, with a ceremony at the Basilica of Santa Maria in Aracoeli in Campidoglio that commemorated the Romagna artist in all the most significant aspects of his personality. Few flowers, few trappings, as she herself had asked for, in a simple ritual but full of emotions and memories.
In addition to the family and closest collaborators, many well-known faces from the world of politics and entertainment present at the ceremony: among others the Minister of Culture Dario Franceschini, the mayor of Rome Virginia Raggi, the former Minister of Economy and candidate the mayor of Rome Roberto Gualtieri, the CEO of Rai Fabrizio Salini, the director of Rai1 Stefano Coletta. There are also many colleagues of the great showgirl, including Milly Carlucci, Michele Cucuzza, Serena Autieri, Massimo Lopez, Alessandro Greco, Carmen Russo and Enzo Paolo Turchi, just to name a few.
