Mama Irene was a mainstay of all Insomniac events for years. Pasquale Rotella's fabulous mother always visited her sons productions and graced the main stage with her presence year after year. Mama Irene took ill in 2015 and sadly passed away after an incredible life of overcoming hardships and watching her son build an empire.

Pasquale Rotella has debuted a downright aweseom statue of Mama Irene for this year's EDC Las Vegas. While the no statue can do her massive personality justice, this is a pretty incredible tribute.
