Rossano Rubicondi, the images of the funeral in New York: the pain of Ivana Trump and the words of friends
The funeral of Rossano Rubicondi, who died of cancer on October 29, 2021, took place in New York, organized by his ex-wife Ivana Trump, who was with him until the end.
While rumors and inferences continue to chase each other on the causes and modalities of his death, on the probable alternative treatments to which he had entrusted, the images transmitted by Barbara D’Urso in Afternoon Cinque, which resume the funeral of Rossano, in the presence of friends, strike to the heart more expensive (there was also Roberto Alessi, who remembered him from the pulpit and wanted to toast his memory after the funeral, just “as he, so lover of life, would have liked”). And there was Ivana Trump, first lover and then lifelong friend. Destroyed by pain, supported by her son’s arms, sitting in the front row of the church.
Ivana gave Rossano 500 red roses, that fiery Italian she had married, from whom she had abruptly departed but which she had found over the years. Just this summer there were rumors about their possible new marriage: they themselves had talked about it, halfway between serious and facetious, already, in 2019, guests of Barbara D’Urso on Domenica Live, and many recent images, published by the Daily Mail and other foreign tabloids, which portrayed them together in New York, shopping and taking long walks, always arm in arm. The latest dates back to last July, with Rossano visibly thinner and aged.
