Carla Fracci, great international dance étoile, leaves us.

The lady of dance, Carla Fracci, passed away today at the age of 84.

Gone at the age of 84 is the queen of dance who graced the most important stages together with world-famous dancers: Carla Fracci. A great dancer ofinnate elegance and undisputed professionalism known throughout the world. A true ballet legend not only nationally but also internationally.

Rai pays tribute to her with programming dedicated to her, both within programs and by airing special episodes that featured her.

Rai5 will repropose at 7:45 p.m. the episode of “Corpo di ballet,” broadcast last Monday, narrating the complex journey to bring Giselle to the stage and the surprise organized by the new director: the unexpected arrival of Carla Fracci, who was Giselle’s greatest performer. Next, at 8:15 p.m. Senate&Culture will offer a “Tribute to Dance - Dedicated to Carla Fracci” (repeated Friday, May 28 at 12 p.m.) while at 9 p.m.15 will air the ballet “La Strada” in the historic edition based on Federico Fellini’s film of the same name with choreography by Mario Pistoni and music by Nino Rota with Carla Fracci, Aldo Santambrogio and Mario Pistoni (repeated Friday, May 28 at 5:30 p.m.).

With Rai Storia (channel 54) last October, Carla Fracci had shared “Domenica Con,” in a schedule entirely dedicated to dance, to which she had dedicated these words, “Dance must be helped more. We must carry on this art, because dance is an art.” To her Rai Storia dedicates today at 10:10 p.m. and in repetition, tomorrow - Friday, May 28 at 6:30 p.m. - “Events - Homage to Carla Fracci.” The Special features excerpts from broadcasts in which she was a guest or protagonist: “Studio Uno” from 1966 with Lelio Luttazzi, “Scarpette rosa” from 1967 directed by Vito Molinari, “Al Paradise” from 1983 with Oreste Lionello, Milva and Heather Parisi; “Serata d’onore” from 1989 with Pippo Baudo and “Stasera pago io” from 2002 with Fiorello. The Special, moreover, on Friday, May 28 at 6:30 p.m., will feature some of his interviews: a 1967 Telegiornale with Ruggero Orlando, 1974’s “Yesterday and Today” with Paolo Ferrari, 1992’s “Harem” with Catherine Spaak, and 1997’s “L’inviato speciale, l’uomo giusto al posto sbagliato” with Piero Chiambretti.

RaiNews24 will remember Carla Fracci, in all editions throughout the day, with in-studio guests, reports dedicated to her career, in-depth reports and live connections with the Teatro alla Scala that was her home.

The funeral chamber will be set up in the foyer of La Scala on Friday, May 28, from noon to 6 p.m. “We will have a funeral chamber at La Scala, something that has been done very few times,” announced Superintendent Dominique Meyer. “Which is rare, but since it is Carla Fracci...” he added, stressing that “she was the most important dancer in the theater in the last century, but also a very important star in international dance.” “We must bow before the career of Carla Fracci,” he concluded, “who was born here doing ballet school.” The funeral will be celebrated on Saturday 29 at 2:45 p.m. in St. Mark’s Basilica.
