"The sunbaked island of Sicily, the largest and historically richest in the Mediterranean, is the scene of the annual IBLA GRAND PRIZE, a piano competition held in a hall buried among the clusters of 17th and 18th century stone buildings that crowd the little threads of streets.

The rocky town of only 80,000 lies just a few miles from where Ionian and Mediterranean meet at Sicily's southern most tip. Hearing piano-playing in this kind of setting is amazing. It is like the opening of an ornate and ancient casket only to find it stocked with glittering gems."

-Gordon Sparber, Winston-Salem Journal, NC, USA

We at the IBLA Foundation are deeply saddened by the passing of our passionate music loving

IBLA Foundation Chairwoman Baroness Mariuccia Zerilli Marimo'. The world of music at large has lost one of its most graceful and generous supporter. Her faith, passion, smile and energetic presence will profoundly be missed ...


Baronessa Carissima,

abbiamo imparato tanto dal Suo Amore ... dalla Sua Fede ... dalla Sua incondizionata generosita' ... non la dimenticheremo mai.


November 13, 2015
Memorial Mass celebrated by His Eminence Renato Cardinal Martino Protodiacono di Santa Romana Chiesa e Grande Priore del Sacro Ordine Militare Costantiniano di San Giorgio.

"... We should all follow Mariuccia's life path of humility and generosity ..."

Renato Cardinale Martino
