Tributes flow after Bruno Arena dies at 65

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 28 - Bruno Arena, one half of the Italian TV and film comic duo Fichi d'India, has died at the age of 65, his son Gianluca said on Instagram Wednesday.
    "I wasn't ready, but I never would have been, bon voyage dad...you leave a huge gap," the son said.
    Musician and TV presenter Paolo Belli posted a photo of the pair together saying "RIP great friend of mine".
    Arena suffered an aneurysm in 2013 which compromised his motor capacities.
    He started off in show business in the 1980s and hit the top of the TV comic scene after meeting partner Max Cavallari and founding the Fichi d'India, a constant presence on cult comedy show Zelig. (ANSA).
