It is with great sadness that we have this week heard the news that Giovanni Nasta, founder and owner of Opera Loudspeakers and owner of Unison Research, has passed away. We as a company have many fond memories of Mr Nasta and his wit, wisdom and kind hospitality will be sorely missed. Our best wishes go out to his family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time

Below is the public statement from Opera Loudspeakers, on behalf of the Nasta family...

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,
