It was at 86 that she lost her life. She had a fatal fall while Nino Ferrer showed her around his facilities on his property. A tragic event that completely disturbed the artist.

Two days before his death, the doctor then prescribed anxiolytics to Nino Ferrer to treat depression. Euphoric because of the drugs, the latter had asked his relatives to call him “Don Nino Ferrer” at a party organized for his wife’s birthday.

But that’s not all. He had also dived without clothes in the swimming pool of their house. Something he had never done before. On the day of his death, he found a scheme to keep his wife away from him.

Nino Ferrer also confessed: “Honestly, I don’t know what to think. The time and materials available have made all possible chemical combinations occur an infinite number of times..

“And that certain conditions caused the appearance of life. This explanation seems logical to me. But when we try to look further, we wonder why. And how is it possible?.

“How could chance have achieved such a thing? Wouldn’t we rather be characters in a video game programmed by someone? But I find that living is wonderful in itself”.

Nino Ferrer then had concluded : “Whatever the answer, life is Beautiful. Well, if there’s something after that, that’s great. Glad that happens. Because it must be fantastic! And if there is nothing, well, too bad! For honor, for honor of life”.
