Flashpoint Ferguson: Latest news on crisis roiling U.S.

FILE - Nilla Pizzi performs in this 1963 file photo. Nilla Pizzi, winner of the first San Remo festival, and whose voice was deemed too sensual to sing on radio during the fascist regime of Benito Mussolini, died on Saturday, March 12, 2011. She was 91, said RAI state TV, which broadcasts the week-long festival of Italian song each year. The Italian President Giorgio Napolitano in a condolence message hailed Pizza as a "sensitive and popular interpreter of the Italian melodic tradition." During fascist rule in the years before World War II, Pizzi was kept away from radio work because her voice was deemed too "modern, exotic and sensual," the Italian news agency said.
