Friends and colleagues have reacted with shock and dismay at the death of Tommaso Zuccon Ghiotto, a talented violinist from Vicenza, who was found dead over the weekend at his home in via Napoli.

He was 27.

Tommaso had won an audition to play in Enrico Morricone’s Sinfonietta Italiana.

After studies at the Zurich conservatoire, he was entering international competitions and achieving good placements. At this stage, there is no known cause for his death.

Our sympathies to his loved ones.
