Public pain and unspeakable thoughts. The last bitter act of the great story of Gina Lollobrigida could have been written by a great screenwriter, by one of those who with their stories and their dialogues had made the most beautiful in Italy a world diva. In the funeral home set up in the hall of the Protomoteca del Campidoglio, notables and celebrities parade to say their last goodbyes to the diva, under the eyes of her only son Andrea Milko Skofic, her nephew Dimitri and Francisco Javier Rigau, an enigmatic character who calls himself ex husband, but who was in reality the other party to a marriage annulled by the sacra rota, which the parties had undertaken never to transcribe in the civil documents. – laws | Photo | video

However, everything suggests that the funeral, public and broadcast on Rai Uno on Thursday 19 at 12.15, will not be the final word, but a solemn moment, after which hostilities will begin between family members, exes and trusted men. There is, or at least there should be, a great heritage at stake.

CARRAMBA WHAT A SURPRISE – In this comedy the canvas is known, and as already mentioned it revolves around the inheritance, but it is worth pausing for a moment on the scripted parts. Let's start with what appears to be true spectacular turn of events : after years of oblivion Javier Rigau has reappeared, the Spanish entrepreneur, born in 1961, who allegedly married Lollo and whose marriage was later annulled by the Sacra Rota. He, the Rigau, defines himself as an entrepreneur, but in reality no one is clear what business he deals with. According to a private agreement, reproduced on the Corriere website, there was an agreement between the diva and the Spaniard to celebrate the marriage 'exclusively in a religious form, categorically and unequivocally not wanting civil effects to follow from it' and for this very reason they undertook «not to request, jointly or severally, the registration of the marriage in a civil court, in any country or nation in the world». all commitments, even some concerning confidentiality, which would have remained valid even after the death of the actress. Strengthened by the agreement, Lollo was ready to get married, which were suddenly cancelled.

THE OMNIPRESENT FACTOTUM – Towards the end of 2009, Andrea Piazzolla enters Gina Lollobrigida's life almost by chance. He is 21 years old, and as we would say today, no particular skills. he gets to know her through mutual friends, initially he should help her sell sculptures in Arab countries but within a few days he moves to the villa in via Appia Antica and becomes her right arm. It is he who discovers that Rigau, after the marriage annulled in 2006, managed to marry Lollobrigida in 2011, by proxy. The ensuing turmoil ends in 2019 with the annulment of the wedding. Pope Francis dissolves it was Pope Francis himself who dissolved the marriage 'due to non-existence', which makes the provision unappealable. All right, but then in what capacity is Rigau in the funeral home alongside his son Andrea Milko and his nephew Dimitri. He also wonders how to report, to the microphones of Live life , that the assets of the actress “Has disappeared”.

WHAT ABOUT INHERITANCE? Rigau points out on Rai1: 'I will not inherit anything, this is something that has already been done and please do an investigation into my assets and what I had before'. But on the one hand he lets it be known that he still has the marriage certificate, registered in the Spanish court, and Lollo's lawyer, Antonio Ingroia, puts his hands forward explaining that according to the Spanish civil register that marriage is still valid and therefore there is the possibility that that register could be enforced at European level. And so what? everything suggests that the macabre dance is just in the opening lines: it will be necessary to see if there is a will, when it was written and if the ghostly Spanish marriage will be considered valid. And at that point see what remains of a heritage that was very rich but that someone suspects has already been looted.
