San Benedetto del Tronto (Ascoli Piceno), September 9 - The cremation of Lucio Battisti, one of Italy's best known and most influential pop-rock musicians who died in 1998, took place on Monday morning at the central Italian city of San Benedetto del Tronto, according to local municipality authorities. The body of Battisti, who died after a long illness aged 55 in 1998, was exhumed from its resting place at a cemetery near Lake Como in northern Italy at the request of his family earlier this month. He was buried after his death in the cemetery of Molteno, a town nestled between lakes near the city of Lecco, where he spent his last years with his family.
