Amelia and the boys from the Terni Music Academy do not give up. After experiencing the tragedy of the death of his partner Simone two years ago, Serena Ursillo had not wanted the silence and compassion around her, but she had continued to play drums with a special fondness for hard rock and heavy metal., trying to transfer this love for music to the youngest. Fabrizio Tini Brunozzi of the Terni Academy of Music reminds us: We are surprised – he tries to tell us – because it is a great loss, professionally but above all human. He always smiled and the students loved him, especially the little ones. With us she always behaved like an exemplary person and teacher, a real music lover with a special predilection for rock and metal. Life does not smile at him and it was very unfortunate, this tragedy happened just as he was recovering from grief over the loss of his life partner. She will have a splendid memory of a person who knew how to be among others and who knew how to give with generosity and love.
