She was multilingual Italian-Spanish-English, and more. She used to speak perfect Spanish as she worked as a TV presenter for RTVE. Raffaella used to sing songs in Spanish too, which were popular in most Spanish-speaking countries. This is a hilarious video of people in Argentina singing her song Fiesta including nurses, doctors, butchers, etc.

A los 78 años falleció la cantante y presentadora italiana Raffaella Carrá. 😢
Seguramente, en algún lado, se reencontrará con su amigo Diego y volverán a tirar bailes geniales como este.

In this 2014 interview for an important radio network in Spain, Raffaella says that she learned Spanish many decades ago by singing in Spanish from Latin America originally, but at the time of this interview, she could speak also Spanish from Spain.
An hour long program on Televisión Española about Raffaella.
Two days ago I wrote a post about El Rey, a mariachi Mexican song that every person who stays to Mexico for a while should know. Raffaella also knew this song. I added her video at the end of that post In fact, not many women sing El Rey, but Raffaella did.
Descanse en Paz.
