Italy says goodbye to Raffaella Carrà for three days

Italy says goodbye from today Wednesday until Friday to its diva Raffaella Carrà, passed away on Monday at age 78, and he does it with a funeral procession, a burning chapel and a funeral in Rome, the city in which he achieved success. The country, still shocked by the unexpected news of his death, has turned to these funerals to honor in style one of its most popular and beloved artists, also abroad, especially in Spain and Latin America.

The first act of the farewell on this day of intense heat in the Italian capital has been a funeral procession for the places that were important in the life and work of the presenter and singer. His coffin, in a car escorted by police motorcycles, left the house where he lived for the last forty years, on Vía Nemea in the Vigna Clara neighborhood, a house surrounded by a garden on the northern outskirts of the capital, far from its bustling center.

He was stopping at various venues of the Italian public television, RAI, temples of the show where he conquered the public with his songs, dances and his sympathy in the many programs in which he participated throughout his long career. The first point where he stopped was the RAI auditorium in the Foro Italico, next to the Olympic stadium, which they have already proposed to be baptized with his name in the future. At his doors, dozens of workers and followers gave him an emotional applause.

Afterwards, he passed through the RAI headquarters in via Teulada, where the legendary program ‘Studio Uno’ was filmed, in which Raffaella appeared in the sixties and the procession has also paraded through the entity’s headquarters on Mazzini street . He has also stopped before the Theater of Victories, where in 1971 Carrà scandalized himself by appearing for the first time before the cameras of the ‘Canzonissima’ program with a suit that revealed his navel, something inappropriate for the codes of Italy at the time.

It was also in that program that he presented one of his most famous songs, ‘Tuca tuca’, and his dance as a couple, which consisted of touching the knees, hips or the head of the other, which aroused the censorship of the era and irritated the Vatican. The funeral procession comes to an end at the Campidoglio complex, the seat of the Roman City Council and which houses the burning chapel of the star from 6:00 p.m. local time today until next Friday, to allow her legion of followers to see her off.

The burning chapel will run throughout the day tomorrow, Thursday, until at noon on Friday (10.00 GMT) his funeral is officiated at the nearby church of Santa María in Ara Coeli.

Raffaella Maria Roberta Pelloni was born in Bologna (Emilia-Romagna, northern Italy) on June 18, 1943, but moved to the capital at the age of 8 to learn from the choreographer Jia Ruskaia, founder of the National Academy of Dance. The disease that has ended her life, of which there is no confirmation, has taken Italy by surprise, because apparently the diva did not want it to tarnish her legacy of joy and spectacle.
