Tu Si Que Vales, Nerina PIeroni, the 81-year-old pianist, is dead: the story that the woman told the judges
Everyone will remember Nerina Pieroni, the pianist that last October 31 has enchanted the public and judges of Tu Si Que Vales. Unfortunately it is dead to 81 years old, last night, in the retirement home where she moved a few years ago. Everyone was moved to see his performance.
The lady was a teacher of music and had also been an accompanist on the piano at conservatory of Turin. However, in 1996 he decided to stop to play for a problem.
He resumed playing his beloved piano afterwards 10 long years. In fact, when she showed up on the TV show, Tu Si Que Vales was keen to to tell his history. Nerina Pieroni said to the judges:
It was my life but when you can’t anymore, you can’t anymore. I have decided to retire to a nursing home. My friends were afraid that I would be saddened. They said to me: ‘Nerina you go there and after a month you lie on one side waiting for the end!’
I replied that I am also waiting for the end at my house. I must say that I have met some wonderful people: the director, the nurses, the guests are my brothers and sisters. I found the life I needed.
Between one thing and the other a nurse, Cristina, recognized me and told me if I was still playing, I said no and she made me bring a pianola. I put my hands on the piano and at night I struggled to fall asleep, so much was the thrill of being back to play. I played at an event and everyone liked it so much. So here I am.
The words of Maria De Filippi for Nerina Pieroni
The woman is dead serenely last night, in the retirement home where she had moved, in the province of Wedge. He had a busy schedule. His talent thrilled thousands of people. In fact the same Maria De Filippi, when he heard her, he said to her:
I think you have two talents. The first is a talent that belongs to the person. The talent when he told a delicate moment in his life, probably familiar, is the talent of knowing how to see the glass half full and never half empty.
It is a rare talent, which I do not have and which I would dream of having. It is the art of life, knowing how to live. And then he has the art of playing!
