Tenor Salvatore Licitra’s website confirms what has been speculated for several days: That the singer may have suffered a cerebral hemorrhage that caused him to crash his Vespa last Saturday, sustaining severe injuries to his head and chest.
Licitra remains in stable condition, in a coma. His injuries have cast a somber tone over the Premio Ragusani nel Mondo, in which he was to be honored, but it is taking place as scheduled, with some controversy from those who thought it should have been canceled.
