Luciano Pavarotti The World mourns the passing of Luciano Pavarotti, who died in the early morning hours today. Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo paid his tribute to Italian tenor und hinted that the Scuderia will do so during this Weekend Italian GP similar to 2001 after the 9/11 attacks.

The opera singer died at the age of 71 in his home in Modena, also home to the sportscar manufacturer, a year after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Although Pavarotti’s death didn’t come as a total suprise, the news of his passing has spread sadness around the World. As the most splendid voice on earth silences forever, the maestro will be reverred to not only by mourners paying their last tribute tonight in Modena’s Cathedral, but everywhere around the World.

Luciano Pavarotti, August 2007

«With Pavarotti our country loses an extraordinary ambassador for its culture, music and Italian identity in the world,» Montezemolo said. «With him, I lose a personal friend and a great friend of Ferrari.

It´s expected that the Scuderia Ferrari will pay tribute to Pavarotti in a visible way, yet, no confirmation has been made as to the kind of homage the Italian Team will carry on their cars during this Weekend’s Italian GP.

Back at my place I’ve opened a bottle of my favourite Corvo from the Duca di Salaparuta vineyard. I always quite enjoyed to listen to Pavarotti on the Audio, but his experimental concerts with rock and pop greats on stage where equally appealing to watch. And so I’m listening to my favourites, unforgotten performances such as Il Canto, Caruso, O Sole Mio, It’s A Man’s World, Va Pensiero , Miserere, Ordinary World , Se Bastasse Una Canzone, Panis Angelicus , Come Back To Sorrento , You Are So Beautiful, E Lucevan Le Stelle , All For Love, Let it Rain, Too Much Love Will Kill You, Una furtiva Lagrima , Ave Maria and, of course, Nessun Dorma .

Arrividerci maestro… ci veddiamo un bello giorno lassú.
