When the mayor called me on the phone, one morning not many days ago – how many, I wouldn’t know: quarantine makes you lose the size of time! – inviting me to sing in the Cathedral for Easter, I replied “present” without hesitation. Indeed I take this opportunity to thank him, as well as I sincerely thank all those – in Italy and in the world – who in this complex period have proved particularly sensitive and generous, supporting the many fundraising campaigns, including one, active still today, created by the Andrea Bocelli Foundation, in favor of the COVID Hospital in Camerino and to support additional hospitals and departments dedicated to the care of COVID-19.
