A mourning changed Roby Facchinetti’s life forever. In the last few hours, the former voice of the Pooh posted a long post on Instagram dedicated to the friend Valerio Negroni, who passed away 9 years ago. The post thrilled Facchinetti’s fans.
“Dear Valerio” – Roby writes on the popular social network – “Nine years have already passed since that last phone call of ours, from that cursed evening of darkness, snow and pain. For nine years you have suddenly left: leaving an unbridgeable void in our hearts, and when I say “our hearts” I mean the hearts of us, your friends and colleagues, obviously of your family, but also of the people, of the many who they followed, loved, read, sang “.
Negroni’s death literally changed Facchinetti’s life: “Since then our lives have never been the same, dear Valerio. And how many regrets have grown in me. How many extraordinary things we have done, lived together and will never be able to repeat, never will they be able to return; how beautiful, strong, miraculous was our alchemy, an alchemy which was also unrepeatable “.
Facchinetti concluded the long post, saying: “You must also have stamped your passport to the stars, Valerio, in that dark night; but since you usually brought the stars into the house with your poetry, now evidently they are the ones who bring us you, your memory, your lesson, a presence that, like your art, will really never die. I hug you tightly, my friend and brother “.
