We have received the very sad news that Giovanni Nasta, owner of Unison Research and founder/owner of Opera Loudspeakers, has died.

The Italian brands’ UK distributor, Henley Audio, sent us the following message from Unison Research and Opera Loudspeakers:

“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of the beloved Giovanni Nasta on Sunday 10th May 2020. He was 65 years old and his death is a great loss to his family and to the audio community.

Giovanni led his life and his work in the same enthusiastic manner, always ready to experiment new roads and solutions. He founded Opera Loudspeakers and took over Unison Research, bringing them under the umbrella of A.r.i.a. Srl, and has left a prosperous and flourishing company, rich in projects and new ideas.

Over the years he created a formidable team of professionals, extremely competent and passionate. His experience, sensitivity and creativity will inspire us all in carrying on his life’s work.

We profoundly thank all those who were close to us during this difficult time: friends, suppliers and customers whose support we never lacked. Our mission now is to carry on his legacy with the same passion and pure vision. Rest assured that Giovanni’s heritage is in good hands, and we will do everything to continue as he would have.

In deep sadness,

Donatella Vigilante, Bartolomeo Nasta, Riccardo Nasta, Elisabetta Nasta,

Gianni Maria Sacchetti, Leopoldo Rossetto, Mario Bon and all Colleagues”

We send our deepest condolences to Giovanni’s family, friends, and colleagues.
