This morning in Milan, a crowd of people gathered at the Basilica of Santi Nerio e Achilleo for a funeral Toto Cutugno. To welcome them, they find his music, namely the motifs of his songs played by the accordion but also balloons with the Italian flag, or the notes along the stairs and next to the blacksmith’s autograph books.
Upon the arrival of the coffin of the singer, who died in the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan after a long illness, spontaneous applause erupted from the many who could not enter the church and who also sang L’italiano.
“Go Toto!” someone shouted as the coffin, which had a pillow of white roses and a red rose on it, entered the church.
There are plenty of ordinary people among whom well-known faces like Mario Lavezzi are confused.
