Rome, April 1 - Italy was mourning on Monday the
deaths of two of its great musical artists, Enzo Jannacci and
Franco Califano.
Funerals are planned on Tuesday for both musicians, said
MEI, an organization representing independent musicians.
"(Tuesday) is an opportunity to remember them in the best
way: playing their best songs for the wider public, drawing from
their large and long artistic careers," said MEI.
After Jannacci died last Friday in Milan at age 77, queues
formed to say farewell to the singer-songwriter and stand-up
comic at the city's Teatro Dal Verme.
One day later in Rome, Franco Califano - a well-known
writer, singer, and actor - died at age 74.
Long lines formed Monday in the Protomoteca hall of the
city's Capitoline Hill to pay homage to the musician.
That included colleague Fiorello, who described Califano as
someone "who definitely enjoyed life," adding that Italy had
suffered a great loss with the two deaths.
"We are fortunate to have been able to know two such great
characters".
