Italy pays homage to David Bowie

Milan, January 11 - Italy on Monday paid homage to British pop and rock legend David Bowie the day after he died from cancer aged 69. "Bowie was the true class rebel," said Lombardy regional governor Robero Maroni, a music buff. "For my generation and in an age dominated by big groups, when if you were not part of a group you were nobody, he was the solo singer par excellence," he continued. "A courageous choice. I really liked his incursions into rock, for us youngsters he truly went against the flow and he also knew how to be very romantic, in his own way," Maroni concluded. "Bowie is the maestro," wrote anti-mafia author and journalist Roberto Saviano on his social profiles. "The capacity to create personalities and explore musical genres against the flow are the manifestation of a constant exploration and a profound study of mankind," he continued. "Bowie is continual experimentation: to change and never indulge the fear of disappointing. Bowie is a true artist because he made his life into a work of art," Saviano concluded. Giuseppe Sala, former Expo CEO and one of the candidates in centre-left primaries in Milan on February 7, compared Bowie to "the Milan we want". "A perfect mixture of high and popular culture. Ability to look and practice tradition, the present, the future. Local identity and global reality. All held together by a great intelligence and unrivalled ability to work. The Milan we want," Sala wrote on his Facebook page. Italian musicians entrusted their homages to Twitter. "Ciao David, when I was a girl you were my idol and my strength; without you I would never have taken the big step towards rock," wrote singer-songwriter Gianna Nanini. "David Bowie was one of the greatest and most extraordinary artists in the history of Rock and Pop. A true legend, a unique innovator, a marvellous visionary. The world mourns the Thin White Duke," tweeted Gianni Morandi. "Hats off to a colossus. Ziggy Stardust, The Thin White Duke, David Bowie is now Black Star (the title of his last album released on his 69th birthday on January 8). But he has always been David Robert Jones. His musical legacy is enormous. To him my most sincere thanks from the depths of my heart," wrote Ligabue.
