“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”. This is what we read on the Facebook profile of Raffaella Carrà currently run by the family of the queen of television, who passed away in Rome on 5 July, explaining that the proposal, approved by all parties except for Vox who abstained, belongs to the municipal group Más Madrid. Now it has become a reality. Más Madrid, in launching the proposal concerning a space between the Chueca and Malasana neighborhoods that has not yet been titled, highlighted the work of a singer who is very involved in some social causes, such as workers’ rights or feminism.
“Raffaella Carrà deserves this and more. She represents an icon of freedom for many generations. Her music has inspired several generations. She was one of the first public figures to talk about sexual freedom and is a reference point for music and television, an icon, for Madrid and for Spain as a whole. It deserves this recognition, since it has always been very attached to Madrid, a city where she said she felt free and where she felt very comfortable enjoying the life of its streets and its squares “, said Mas Madrid.
“Italy once again loses the opportunity to be the first to pay homage to its greatest artist”, reads the facebook post. Although in Italy several proposals have been launched to pay homage to her, such as that of Milly Carlucci who asks Rai to name the Auditorium of the Foro Italico after her where the Carrà has conducted many successful shows, including ‘Carramba! What a surprise ‘whose reruns, aired in these evenings on Rai1, have won the ratings. Cristiano Malgioglio asked instead to name the Rai studios in via Teulada after her.
