Music producer and publisher Piero Sugar, husband of Caterina Caselli who died on the night of June 12 at his home in Milan. Born in 1937, he is the son of Ladislao Sugar, known for founding Messaggerie Musicali and managing CGD. After joining his father’s company at the end of the 1960s, Piero became its managing director, leading it with great success. The funeral will take place on June 13, in the afternoon in the Basilica of San Marco in Milan, in private, by decision of the family, which has chosen strict secrecy at this time. Reserve has always been an entrepreneur, capable of shaping the music world with intuition but always keeping a distance from the spotlight. Not even his marriage at the time tempted this gentleman of the show, who was not at all fascinated by fame or the limelight.


Qualities that conquered Caselli at once, were discovered by what later became her mother-in-law. Piero Sugar and Caterina Caselli met at a very young age and married in 1970, when she was 24 years old. The following year, his son Filippo was born, today at the head of the family business. The couple has always been very close, giving life to a partnership that also works. In 1989, Katrina Caselli founded Insieme-Sugar, later Sugar. Filippo Sugar also served as Siae President from 2015 to 2018. Team artists include Andrea Bocelli, Mallika Ayan, Negramaro, Raphael Gualazzi, Madame, Motta and Sangiovanni.
