Italy on Wednesday bade farewell to the late and much-loved TV presenter Fabrizio Frizzi, who died three days ago. Frizzi's funeral took place at the Chiesa degli Artisti (Church of the Artists) in Rome's Piazza del Popolo. Thousands of people crowded the square and gave his coffin a long and loud round of applause as it went into the church.

The priest officiating, Father Walter Insero, described Frizzi as a "generous fighter, always with a smile". "He is now receiving all the love that he sowed," Father Insero said in his homily. Among the mourners were fellow presenter Carlo Conti, who said "he was a brother to me, I can't say anything else", and Tuscan actor-director Leonardo Pieraccioni who said "let's keep him in our hearts".
