We have been informed of the death yesterday of Carlotta Nobile, a phenomenally gifted and resourceful violinist.
At 24, she was artistic director of the Santa Sofia chamber orchestra in Benevento and the author of two published books. Two years ago, she was diagnosed with a melanoma, which recently spread to the brain. She was planning concerts as recently as April, but the cancer advanced too fast.
May she rest in blessed peace.
Here is a stanza from a poem that she wrote about her illness:
Ci sono battaglie che non abbiamo scelto. Poi c’é la vita. E io quella non smetterò mai di sceglierla. – Carlotta Nobile
And here is the facebook diary that she kept to bring hope to others.
