We didn't think the news could get any sadder!

Turns out, when James Gandolfini died in Italy, he wasn't alone.

The father of two brought along his teenage son Michael to the Taormina Film Festival. The two were taking a "guys' trip," spending some quality father-son time together.

According to the hotel's manager, Michael was the one who found his father collapsed on the bathroom floor and called the hotel staff for help.

Hotel workers then tried to resuscitate the Sopranos star until the ambulance came and took him to the hospital.

James sadly could not be revived and was declared dead just 40 minutes after arrival. Hospital officials say an autopsy will be performed, with preliminary results on Friday.

Michael's mother Marcy Wudarski immediately flew to Italy to be with her son following the tragic events.

How terrible. We can't even imagine.

  1. Mark says – reply to this


    My heart goes out to that son, I can relate so much. I found my Mother dead also, and it still haunts me to this day.

    Yeah… been there too, Mike. It's a memory that sears.

    Michael will never forget. But I hope that when those moments come… when he remembers seeing his father in his final minutes.. that he can try to recall the huge, huge, moving outpouring of love and respect from Gandolfini's costars, industry cohorts, and friends. One magnificent tribute after another for this man who was not only revered as a deep and natural talent… but also as a humble, fundamentally kind person who never forgot where he came from, or who made him happy along the way.

    Sorry, I meant to write "Mark" in that first sentence above. Had Mike on my mind.
