Gianni Nazzaro granted an interview shortly before his death, which took place on Tuesday 27 July 2021. The Neapolitan actor and singer passed away at the age of 72, due to lung cancer.
In his last days of life, Gianni Nazzaro had his partner, agent and press office, Nada Ovcina by his side. The singer has decided to marry Nada Ovcina for the second time, a few days before her death. Gianni Nazzaro and Nada Ovcina were husband and wife in the 1970s: after the birth of their two children, Giovanni Junior and Giorgia, the couple separated and then returned together about fourteen years later.
The interview was granted to the weekly Nuovo. Part of the interview was shared on Instagram by the director Riccardo Signoretti.
On several occasions, Gianni Nazzaro and Nada Ovcina had planned to remarry. Following the worsening of his health conditions, the singer asked his partner to marry her, giving her one last memory that she will keep forever:
He and I were divorced and sometimes planned to remarry. When his condition worsened beyond repair, Gianni asked me to become his wife. A wedding in extremis, celebrated at three in the morning in a hospital room. But it gave me a moment of happiness: the last, unfortunately, which makes our bond eternal and indestructible.
In the interview, Gianni Nazzaro expressed regret for not being able to return to perform at the Sanremo Festival:
I would have liked to return to the Sanremo Festival, but I was sidelined in favor of often untalented artists. This interview? It is a test of courage for me. As an artist, I want to get out of the scene in the best possible way. I don’t want to be regretted or, worse, rediscovered: if I had talents, I had to recognize them when I was alive.
