L'Eco di Bergamo, May 29, 2002

Pavarotti, Zucchero and Bocelli arouse emotion with "Miserere."

The award for the most emotional moment of the evening at "Pavarotti & Friends," the ninth edition live on Raiuno from the Parco Novi Sad in Modena, goes to "Miserere." The song, written by Zucchero in 1992, thinking of a great tenor, launched Andrea Bocelli throughout the world: and this evening for the first time the bluesman from the Valley of the Po had the pleasure of performing it with two great tenors. The exceptional trio enraptured the audience at Novi Sad. And it was actually to launch "Miserere" that Zucchero convinced Pavarotti to organize the first "Pavarotti & Friends."

Bocelli, first to remain alone on the stage to sing "Mille Lune, Mille Onde," referring to the very recent death of Pavarotti's father, stated, "In such a difficult and delicate moment, Luciano wanted to be here for you and for the children of Angola."
