For Raffaella Carrà’s family, Italy has lost the opportunity to pay homage to its greatest artist for the first time
While in Italy we still think about how to pay homage Raffaella Carrà who passed away on July 5 at the age of 78, elsewhere there are those who are already acting. In Spain it’s at Madrid very soon there will be a square Raffaella Carrà. The municipal council has in fact approved the proposal of to dedicate a square in the Spanish capital to the queen of television, according to the newspaper’s website El Diario.
The space chosen for the tribute to Raffaella Carrà is located at Malasaña, on the road to Chueca, at the intersection of Fuencarral and Augusto Figueroa streets. The square is also called Plaza del Olivo, just to indicate the tree that is at its center. The news was then also reported by her family members on the singer’s official social profiles. “It’s official: between the house numbers 43 and 45 of Calle Fuencarral in Madrid there will be a square with the name of the great Raffaella Carrà “– reads the press release.
However, there was no lack of controversy with the arrow sent to our country: “Italy once again loses the opportunity to be the first to pay homage to its greatest artist”– the family members wrote. On the other hand, the link between Spain and Carrà was very important. The singer was very popular in the Iberian country as she had worked for many years.
The premier Pedro Sanchez after her death on Twitter he had paid homage to her by writing: “It was a woman who inspired several generations”. And in a few days he will also have a square in his honor.
In Italy, however, still nothing even if the proposals are not lacking. Milly Carlucci asked Rai to name the Auditorium of the Foro Italico where the Carrà conducted many successful shows, while Christian Malgioglio proposed to name the Rai studios in via Teulada after her. To date, however, still nothing. And considering the bureaucracy, we imagine it still takes a long time.
