Ezio Bosso died at his home in Bologna last night.
The Turin conductor, composer and pianist passed away at the age of 48 (he would have turned 49 on September 13th).
Since 2011 he has been fighting a neurodegenerative disease but music has never stopped him.
He had recently suffered a deterioration which led him to abandon the plan. In 2017 he renounced the role of guest principal director and resigned from the Municipal Foundation.
The funeral will take place in strictly private form. Bosso was very close to Bologna where he had lived for several years now, participating in the artistic and cultural life of the city.
