LATAM TOUR 2023: COLOMBIA by Daniela

I’m late with the list of various concerts in South America, due to Michelle Impossible’s translation, but now I’ll try to catch up quickly.
We continue the LatAm Tour with stops in Colombia.
Here is Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero upon arrival in Bogotà, very warmly welcomed!!

There is very little time to rest and therefore we immediately move on to the concert.
There are many nice full song videos, which I am attaching.




UN AMORE COSI’ GRANDE (spanish version)





Beautiful collage of songs


Colombia, Bogotá waits for them and receives them with all the expectation and love that they have always generated in their public. We love you, we admire you and we are happy and grateful for your presence in our country. Welcome Always.
It is another fantastic trip that is done with all activities. Seeing them together is already cause for joy. Their brotherly love is the ideal complement to their beautiful voices and they should know that almost 50% is a component of their success!!!!!! … all their presentations in whatever activity they carry out have a stamp that they only imprint on each concert, at each moment, at each response, at each composition they perform, everything becomes warmer, more tender, more meaningful, they produce the double the butterflies in the soul, double the emotion in the heart.
If the songs are beautiful, they become sublime, pure feeling, pure emotion.
With the fact of having chosen them, what lives inside each one is revealed.
For their wonderful voices, for each tone of voice, for each harmony we have clues to a bit of their world.
Since there is a common factor between them, their great and blessed talent, their love for singing, their brotherly love, their admiration for one another, their dedication to the profession and their public, their sincere appreciation to their families, to Its origins and its great team: manager, assistant, teacher, band, technicians…, transmit to us all that beauty that the world contains where they are super talented, loving and charming hosts, intelligent, very different from each other but absolutely complementary. Hearing and seeing them is the closest thing to being in Paradise.
God allow your union to last, your brotherly love be the foot for many, many more successes. Let nothing and no one separate you or induce you to leave this great road that you have built for 14 years now. Wishing that time multiplies. ….it only remains to express
Sincere admiration, great affection and much respect from Colombia.  (Luz Adriana Toro Arango)

Very sweet moments  ❤

This is an Instagram comment by MUSIC TREND COLOMBIA:
Rarely does a three-voice ensemble have the chance to move with total confidence between some of the most famous songs in the world without failing in the attempt.
What happened to @ilvolo today at the Movistar Arena was simply perfect 👌🏻

This is the comment of LUZ ADRIANA TORO ARANGO after seeing the concert:
Yes, just perfect. One does not “die of emotion”, because God is very great. My heart stopped, I floated on a cloud of fantasy, I was in paradise during the entire concert. They are much more than what one expects. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! Admiration Love and respect from Colombia.

This comment by MOVISTAR MUSIC COLOMBIA is also beautiful.
The music of IL VOLO won everyone’s heart! 💙🤩🎶
With a repertoire of poems made into songs, IL VOLO delighted us with its incredible voices. 🤩 Language was not a barrier for everyone to dance and sing at the top of their lungs, because music was the main language, turning it into a concert full of emotions and indescribable energy.
Music makes you feel alive, it makes you feel more connected to the world!

Il Volo participated in a television program: DIA A DIA CARA COLOMBIA
Very interesting this exchange of views on love, which I translate for you.
GIANLUCA= We should always do crazy things, right?
WOMAN= How crazy are you made for love?
GIANLUCA = I traveled very far to see a woman, in Mexico, I remember.
PIERO= Never, never, like him (Ignazio)
GIANLUCA= But he is the craziest.
PIERO= He fell in love with a Brazilian, and every month: “Where’s Ignazio?”
He went to Brazil, always Brazil, always.
WOMAN= Once a month did you go to Brazil to chase love?
WOMAN= Loving from afar, is it possible?
PIERO= I believe that love is nourished if they are together.
GIANLUCA = Out of sight, out of mind.
WOMAN= In other words, you don’t believe in love from afar.
GIANLUCA= Well, it’s very difficult, but everything is possible… isn’t it?… If you believe in something. That love is like learning to do something, if you want to learn to be a singer you have to study every day, you have to have a cure, right? Even for love, I believe.
IGNAZIO= I don’t agree, they are all words…
PIERO= They are all words…
IGNAZIO= Love is such a spontaneous thing that you don’t control it nor can you study it.
WOMAN= And you? You say no, you’ve already lived it, you don’t want to live it again.
IGNAZIO= Well, I’m a person who doesn’t set limits and therefore I won’t say no… but it’s difficult because… one of the most important things in a relationship is everyday life, right?
WOMAN= Spending time together…
IGNAZIO= Yes, fine, you go to work, you have your life, I have my life, but when we want to be together, we stay together.
GIANLUCA= (addressing the woman) What do you think?

Then, they were interviewed in the LA POSTA program for Ecuadorian TV. (I translate briefly)
It’s an interview to publicize the arrival of Il Volo in Ecuador, so the questions are aimed at this purpose.
The interviewer asks why they have dedicated an EP to Latin songs and Gianluca replies that they have always had the opportunity to sing these very beautiful songs. The woman says that there is a lot of reggaeton there and it is remarkable to return to the songs of their fathers with beautiful voices.
Piero also says that he loves the way of dealing with life in South America, always with a positive attitude. The woman asks if it is the first time they have been to Ecuador and Ignazio replies that they have been other times. So they talk about the beautiful beaches and she asks if they like Equadorian food and if they are going to visit Quito, but Piero replies that they will only stay one day but next time they will try to stay and visit the city.

Il Volo also had an exclusive interview with CTV Faranduelando, here’s what they said about them:
“We talked to the Italian trio Il Volo, about their new production in tribute to Latin America entitled ‘Three voices one soul’.  Enjoy this great interview with Il Volo.”
(I translate briefly)
Gianluca begins by saying that in 2013 they paid a tribute to the great Josè Josè and from that moment they fell in love with Latin American music and now with their EP they have decided to pay homage to romantic music.
When asked how does Latin music influence Il Volo’s music, Ignazio replies that Latin American music is very close to Italian culture, both are very romantic and since Il Volo always says they bring Italian culture into their music, the idea was to bring all the tradition of Latin America to the younger generation.
They are asked if Il Volo will make a video for the song Tan Ennamorados and Piero replies no, they are too busy in the tour, the EP is already out and they will sing the songs in the concerts, and then they are concentrated in a new project.
The new question is how Il Volo felt singing with the mariachis.
Gianluca replies that it was a challenge because powerful voices are needed but also full of passion and feeling to better interpret the song with the marichi.
Piero replies to the last question about what Il Volo thinks of current Latin American popular music.
He says that Il Volo respects every musical genre, music is for everyone, and the three of them are nobody to criticize. The musical genre of Il Volo is a genre not very well known by the new generation, and that’s what they try to do, it’s a genre that has been sung in the past by great artists and also the young people, as happened to the three of them, yes can fall in love with these songs. Everyone recognizes himself in a musical genre, everyone can listen to what he wants, we respect all musical genres and all artists who sing.

I would say that the tour is going very well, but damn there is no time to breathe and immediately another country to add to the concerts.
Tell me what you think and…… see you soon!!
Daniela 🤗


I was sending this post, but I saw a video recently posted by Ignazio on Bosky TV.
Activate the subtitles, and read carefully the purpose of TOGETHER IS BETTER.
Once again a demonstration of great heart and generosity.
“Solidarity does not tremble: help us save!!”

March started very well here in Italy, in the evening on Canale 5, we were waiting for the previously recorded episode where Il Volo was a guest of Michelle Huzinker in the MICHELLE IMPOSSIBLE program.
It was all wonderful, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca perfectly at ease, but you will see for yourself from the long video.

Daily Motion Video – Click Here

A splendid Michelle comes down the stairs and makes a long speech to introduce Il Volo.
MICHELLE= Do you ever think about the moment that completely changed your life?
That moment when everything changes in an instant, when we took that train, that decision, or accepted that job, that’s the moment that started a series of events that led us to where we are today.
And if it had gone differently what would it have been like? Would we still be with those people we know today? Or would it be completely different? Because in my opinion the people we have around us are very important and are a turning point, they are fundamental in the meetings we have, and this is why we must be careful, we must pay close attention to the opportunities that present themselves, because the meetings that we do, they can change our existence, and fate is unpredictable.
(The very sweet notes of MICHELLE MA BELLE begin and Il Volo enters and goes down the ladder singing Il Volo, kisses and hugs ) 
GIANLUCA= Good evening.
IGNAZIO= Hello everyone.
PIERO= Hi Michelle.
GIANLUCA= Did you hear that serenade???
MICHELLE= But guys, what an entrance, thanks!
PIERO= In English it doesn’t make it, but in Italian: you are beautiful!!
MICHELLE= You too, you too, and then I’m always very happy to have you here, come and let’s settle down here on the staircase we sit down with a grace. (it’s not very comfortable to sit on those steps)
GIANLUCA= We are all super bright. (All four are wearing elegant and bright suits by Armani)
MICHELLE= (Ignazio remains standing) Please, Ignazio, take a seat.
IGNAZIO= I am admiring your enchanting-ness. (he says it by mangling the word in Italian )
MICHELLE= Wow, that’s too many compliments!
I am super happy that you are here, because I think back to the first time we met…….
IGNAZIO= (He starts to sit down) Help!
MICHELLE= Ignazio, you’re very young, look, this is the first hint of seniority.
IGNAZIO= It’s not the age problem, it’s the size problem. 😁

PIERO= The first button Ignazio, unbutton.
MICHELLE= They have never changed, because I met them for the first time in 2011, think, they were very small, I presented WETTEN DASS in Mallorca …. (At the bottom of this long post is the video of Wetten Dass )

GIANLUCA= Our debut on international television was with you.
MICHELLE= Yes, I was hosting this program in Germany, by the way it was broadcast in Germany but we were in Mallorca. Next to Il Volo were : Cameron Diaz, Heidi Klum, Jennifer Lopez…
IGNAZIO= Ah,  I remember her well. (Jennifer Lopez)
MICHELLE= You remember her well,  eh….and then there were them singing, you realize that they left abroad, that is, they were born here, but they immediately hit the international stages and this is an incredible thing, because it’s not something that happens to everyone in Italy.
PIERO= Us….our story is particular, because we didn’t know each other…
MICHELLE= Exactly…
PIERO= We met in 2009. We live together….it is in all respects a coexistence, because we have been living together for the past 14 years…
IGNAZIO= Unfortunately yes (ironic-laughter). 😁
MICHELLE= Yes, but I really want to understand, because before, I told the audience about the “sliding doors” issue, i.e. you met by chance.  Tell us for a moment that moment when you met, i.e. did you really understand that it would have changed your life?
IGNAZIO= But I think that, as you said, being at the right time, in the right place is fundamental, because in any case there are so many talents all over the world, in Italy, especially we have beautiful voices, and we were lucky enough to find each other in the same place, in the same year, because we met on a children’s television show, and from there they put us together. But it was our decision to say: “OK, let’s continue together”, because in any case we, yes, we are a group, but we are three singers put together, that’s it.
MICHELLE= I understand, but let me understand something, you started your experience, you were put together and then you walked the most important stages in the world. Suddenly you were international, but between you, you had immediately that friendship could spring…
GIANLUCA= The thing that struck me is that there is this similarity, very strong in us, because music, like any form of art, allows you to express what you have inside, and it’s truly unique as a sensation, all the anxieties, all the emotions that we live, and singing is a way to express emotions, and we have this strong thing in common, this strong emotion and this passion for music that unites us in an indissoluble way.
PIERO= But the beautiful thing is that the emotions you feel on a stage are unique, indescribable, and the beautiful is being able to share them with someone who in that instant comprehends and understands those things….
MICHELLE= …. what that you’re living. They sang with Barbra Streisand, tell me, Barbra Streisand, then Laura Pausini, Eros Ramazzotti, you sang in front of the Pope, after singing with everyone,  you go back to Italy and win Sanremo, and that was one more step, you became prophets at home.
PIERO= We used to come back to Italy only for holidays. 😑
MICHELLE= Really??
PIERO= We couldn’t digest this thing, but…..
MICHELLE= In what sense?
PIERO= We only sang abroad, America, South America, Japan… and in Italy, you know it’s always pleasant to sing for your people, for your countrymen, and therefore we had the opportunity to have the GRANDE AMORE song in our hands ……
MICHELLE= Wow, that’s a wonderful song.

IGNAZIO= But we never told you the story, you also wanted some gossip…
MICHELLE= Yeoh, give me some gossip…
IGNAZIO= The audition of GRANDE AMORE arrives and one thinks: “Wow, mamma mia, what a piece” ….. I didn’t like it, not even Piero…
PIERO= That’s not true!
IGNAZIO= No, the only one who liked it was Piero, he went crazy, Gianluca and I didn’t,….because the audition arrived strange, it was sung by a tenor and a soprano and lyric singing, so we got into the study…
MICHELLE= And you two (Ignazio and Gianluca) who are not as lyrical as Piero, didn’t love this piece so much.
IGNAZIO= Not for the lyrical fact, but because the piece didn’t reach us….
PIERO= But there was that refrain (he articulates it with his mouth), which stayed in my ear, and I said let’s try it, it doesn’t cost us anything, let’s just waste one day of our lives….
IGNAZIO= We sat there with Celso Valli (arranger), Michele Torpedine our manager…
MICHELLE= So you won Sanremo thanks to Piero, though!! (She pronounces the phrase in a Sicilian way – applause)
IGNAZIO= Let’s not exaggerate.
MICHELLE= Then Sanremo, a nice extra piece. then at a certain point you also find yourself in international situations, crazy international parties, where you met Beyoncé…anyone, but you were scared…..
IGNAZIO= Her too I do not forget! (Beyoncé)
MICHELLE = Oh yeah? She has a beautiful voice.
IGNAZIO= She’s beautiful, apart from the fact that she’s a crazy singer, she’s very good…
MICHELLE= It’s the queen…
IGNAZIO= But then she is a beautiful woman, really very beautiful.
MICHELLE= Yes, I imagine. Then you went home and you were afraid to tell this because you thought they didn’t believe you anyway.
PIERO= Our friends thought we were crazy, because we were 15/16 years old, we went home, I repeat on vacation, I was ashamed to tell my friends that we were at those parties…
GIANLUCA= Let’s say that flaunting is always wrong, both knowledge and material things, we certainly don’t boast.
PIERO= I used to tell my brother, my sister and that’s it.
Later, over the years, as time went by, we showed some photographs.
MICHELLE= It was a matter of delicacy.
GIANLUCA= But the secret is just that, in the end, for how many things can happen to you in life, like totally changing the path, we always live it with that innocence, just without ever forgetting, that child that is within us, which is the most important thing.
MICHELLE= For this reason you are so wonderful, huh! (applauded)
Like that time when at some point you escaped the fans, and you found yourself in the kitchen with a girl named Lady Gaga.
PIERO= Yes, get Ignazio to tell him.
GIANLUCA= We were at a big event in New York, in 2016/2017 if I’m not mistaken, and we were guests of this big event where Lady Gaga was also there.
He (Ignazio), at a certain point, after the performance, after the evening, the gala, says: “I’m going to sleep, I’m sleepy.”
MICHELLE= Well done Ignazio!!
GIANLUCA= He goes to sleep and instead we spend a nice evening with Lady Gaga. He missed this experience.
MICHELLE= But why did you go to sleep?
IGNAZIO= No, but I told them I was going to sleep…..
MICHELLE= Ahhhhh…….
IGNAZIO= I think you can understand me, each of us goes through periods in our lives where you are particularly passive….
GIANLUCA= (addressed to Michelle) Why are you passive??
PIERO= Can one be passive at 23???
GIANLUCA= He was 23!!!
MICHELLE= Passive in what sense?
IGNAZIO= (He got up) Let me breathe.
MICHELLE= You mean introspective, that you had a particular period?
IGNAZIO= I breathe and I answer you.
MICHELLE= You are very elegant.❤
IGNAZIO = Thank you very much.
MICHELLE= You’re not breathing but you’re fine. 😁
IGNAZIO= There are those moments where you ask yourself questions, I’m like that, it happened to me, but I think it happened to many people, that period comes when you stop and ask yourself who you are, what you want, if you’re in the right place, and I had that period where I wondered many things and I was also very closed off, and therefore I isolated myself a lot, I never went out with them. I went through that period and I have to say it’s nice to be a group, being three of us helping each other overcome difficulties and obstacles and therefore it was lucky to find ourselves in three. I finished my concept.
MICHELLE= Beautiful!! (applause)
PIERO= Can I say one thing? Just one thing, I ask the director to give me a close-up with Michelle, just a moment, where is the camera?
MICHELLE= Sure, why?
PIERO= I would like to tell my friends: “I’m in the right place.”
MICHELLE= Ah, what a charm. (applause)
Ok, a little more gossip. Who happened to find his autograph on the calf of a Vololover??
IGNAZIO= On the calf!
PIERO= We were in the United States, the morning of the concert I go on the treadmill to run and while I was running, I saw this lady next to me, we say goodbye, I run with earphones, I see it and I think I know that signature there, it was my autograph, here, tattooed like this (and he marks at the end of the calf).
MICHELLE = Crazy, incredible! (applause… all must know that the woman Piero is talking about is Marie Crider, a founder of Flight Crew.  When I had the pleasure of meeting her, she herself told me about this moment with Piero.  She also wrote about this meeting with Piero in a post, and  she also took two photos of Piero, you can read everything here, at the bottom of the post)
Piero says it was his signature, in reality was written IL VOLO” ☺
MICHELLE= I understood that all three of you are truly fantastic, but now, as life has brought you to be together, in this small juncture, while you are here at MICHELLE IMPOSSIBLE and I want you to do an impossible mission, that is to separate for a moment and ask yourself a little what it would have been like if these three guys hadn’t met, they would certainly have made a career as soloists, but they would have had different tastes from each other.
Ignazio, what would you have sung, would you have entered opera?
IGNAZIO= If I were alone and could choose a musical genre, what I like most, I would opt more for pop …. R&B (type of music rhythm and blues)
MICHELLE= Oh, really??
MICHELLE= You would have become an R&B pop singer.
IGNAZIO= Yes, yes.
PIERO= But he has an incredible vocal reach.
GIANLUCA= He is the Freddie Mercury of Marsala. (applause)
MICHELLE= But you are also, the boys told me, that you sing girl songs very well.
IGNAZIO= I’ve been trying for a few years to carry on a project, in our concerts, where I like to sing songs, let’s say made famous, brought to success by women and which maybe have never been sung by a man .
MICHELLE= I believe you, because the others fail.
IGNAZIO= But not for that.
MICHELLE= No guys, I’m telling you, I’ve heard it, he doesn’t like compliments so plug your ears, but he sings amazing female singer songs, without changing the key……Maestro, we want put Ignazio to the test and bring him to the centre, we want to see him alone, in a context…..
IGNAZIO= I change some keys, also because otherwise I would sing like the Cugini di Campagna (Italian musical group that sings in falsetto)

GIANLUCA= Which we say hello to them.
MICHELLE= Go Ignazio. So, only here at Michelle Impossible will we enjoy a beautiful piece…..
IGNAZIO= Wait while I take the stand. (of the microphone)
MICHELLE= We are here that listening to you: ALMENO TU NELL’UNIVERSO, an easy, easy song !! (Ignazio begins to sing) – at the end applause, standing ovation) 

MICHELLE= Piero, instead you? Let’s sit down again for a moment, (she laughs because it’s tiring to sit down) “Whoever wants to appear beautiful, must suffer a little,” then Piero, instead you, since you were little: pure lyric, you always have loved the opera, is it true?
IGNAZIO= (he too tries to sit down with difficulty) Ouch Ouch….
GIANLUCA= Again eh!!
PIERO= As a child I immediately rediscovered my vocation for opera, it was passed on to me by my family, and my plan before meeting them (Ignazio and Gianluca), because we met in the pre-adolescent phase, was to finish high school, enrolling in the conservatory and embarking on a course of study to become a tenor, that was my life’s goal.
MICHELLE= But in fact, even now you study 3-4 hours a day, because you train your voice, in the depths of your heart it’s as if you wanted to go there……or in any case you keep yourself trained because it’s a dream in the drawer or do you leave it there, in the sense that you’re already satisfied with what’s happening and you continue to train like this because it’s a passion?
PIERO= I think it’s right to be satisfied with the work you do, but never lose that ambition which is that extra stimulus that makes you alive and gives you that motivation when you wake up in the morning, to always do something more.
MICHELLE= That’s the beautiful thing: the goal in life. (applause).
So what would your dream be? Leave them (Ignazio and Gianluca) alone, leave diplomats “politically correct” alone, what is your dream?
PIERO= I don’t believe much in dreams but I believe a lot in goals. This is one of my goals, I don’t know if I will succeed in my life one day, but I will try to make this wish come true.
MICHELLE= But tell me, because that day I want to be there to show you the tape of this moment. What is the opera stage you would like to tread, the most important one for you.
PIERO= Definitely an Italian theater, more than anything else I’d like to debut with an opera: La Traviata, L’Elisir d’amore, one of these.
MICHELLE= And I think it will happen, meanwhile it happens here with Michelle Impossible, I ask the director please to transform this stage into a great Italian opera house, because they are the most beautiful in the world. Maestro, are we all ready?
PIERO = Wow, I go! (The stage has turned into a theatre – applause)
MICHELLE= Present us the piece well! The piece you will sing.
IGNAZIO= Can I do it?
PIERO= Go, go, you do it come on!
IGNAZIO= Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the second edition of Michelle Impossible, (Michelle corrects Ignazio’s pronunciation)…..I’m introducing, so leave it to me…..
Now Piero Barone, a member of the Il Volo group, will delight us, charm us, amaze us, and in any case he will sing…
PIERO= Do you also want the tax code?? 😁
IGNAZIO=……one of the most famous, most important arias in the history of opera. Taken from TOSCA, E Lucean le stelle (applause, Piero begins to sing)  

MICHELLE= Maestro….incredible!! (applause – standing ovation)
PIERO = Thank you.
MICHELLE= It’s nice to hear them sing alone, to hear how they are different from each other, in their character.
Gianluca is missing.
In any case incredible. (turning to Piero).
PIERO = Thank you.
MICHELLE= I can’t wait to see you on one of those stages and I’ll be the first to come see you.
GIANLUCA= Everyone in the front row.
MICHELLE= The first really.
PIERO= Promise!
MICHELLE= We said it here. (applause)
MICHELLE = Gianluca…
GIANLUCA= Shall we sit down again?
MICHELLE= No, no now it’s your turn.
We heard from Piero and Ignazio, what would you have done, in this moment, let’s say alone?
GIANLUCA= But honestly I’ve always wondered over the years, because knowing each other is difficult, I’ve had periods of confusion. I grew up listening to both Bocelli and Elis Presley and Bublé , Alex Baroni who I loved to death (an Italian singer ) so it was always a world between pop music and … but classical music has never been part of me, let’s say. Then I found a great inspiration in Elvis Presley…
MICHELLE= You mean you’re singing to me something about the great Elvis?
GIANLUCA= I’ll try (applause)
MICHELLE= So the stage is all yours and I would say transform it at this point…Elvis isn’t exactly from New York, but we want to bring people to America. He (Elvis) never got out of America, he wished he would…
GIANLUCA= He went to Germany to enlist..
MICHELLE= But never to sing.
GIANLUCA= He has never sung in Europe, exactly.
MICHELLE= Then you’ll do it now for him.
GIANLUCA= I try, humbly, I try, I go!
MICHELLE= Please. (applause). So at this point Piero, do you want to announce Gianluca?
PIERO= Ok! Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the second edition of Michelle Impossible….
MICHELLE= Perfect like you said it!! (Piero and Michelle make fun of Ignazio)
IGNAZIO= Crafty (untranslatable) can you tell on TV?
MICHELLE= Nowadays, yes.
PIERO= We welcome Gianluca who will sing for all of us: Can’t Help Falling in Love. (applause, Gianluca starts singing) 

GIANLUCA= Thank you (applause and standing ovation) Thank you all, thank you Maestro, thank you to all the musicians.
MICHELLE= Guys but you’re giving me emotions, here the heart …. gives way, I have no one to make out with, it can’t be like this. (laughs)
I tell you one thing, but even during rehearsals, there are few artists who have ….plug your ears (she tells Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, because she wants to give them a compliment), they seem to be recorded singing because they have perfection, because they study. Then you understand why they are so appreciated abroad, they are international, and I am happy that you are returning home, because now you are in South America at this moment and therefore you have come from South America especially for me.
GIANLUCA= But do you know what the most exciting thing is? Me as a child when I was on the sofa and I looked at you crazy, in love….
MICHELLE= Don’t say that I feel old… “when you were child”…. 😁
GIANLUCA= I wanted to pay you a compliment, (applause), I wanted to pay you a compliment….when I was a teenager…
MICHELLE= Come on, kidding!
PIERO= No, wait, Gianluca showed me his TV from when he was little, it was still in black and white! (laughs)
GIANLUCA= I wanted to say that before being famous, that sounds better, I watched her on television and I was in love and now we are delighted to be here with you.
MICHELLE= Thanks!! (then she turns to Ignazio).
Leave the Maestro alone. Ignazio, look, Maestro Chiaravalli is very jealous.
IGNAZIO= But you’re mean, calm down!
MICHELLE= He’s jealous of his cube.
IGNAZIO= This is the reason why your hair fell out, calm down, you are too agitated. (jokes)
MICHELLE= No, because Ignazio, I’ve already touched this little cube here in the first episode several times, the Maestro doesn’t want to because he says things happen….
IGNAZIO= Can’t I touch it?
MICHELLE= You can’t touch it, because if you touch it, things happen.
GIANLUCA= (addressing the people) Aren’t you curious now?
IGNAZIO= (to Michelle) What are you laughing at, explain to me.
MAESTRO= (Piero tries to touch the cube) No, no, no, you can’t touch it.
MICHELLE= The beauty is that everyone you say “you can’t touch” wants to do it.
PIERO= You have become famous, we saw it in a television programme…..
MAESTRO= Yes, but you mustn’t touch this, please, because this is a mechanism….
MICHELLE= Look at them, look at them….but now are we the whole transmission here with the cube?
IGNAZIO= But can you touch it? I mean….
MICHELLE= I could touch it, but I’ll leave it alone because I know what could happen.
IGNAZIO= Let me see what happens.
MICHELLE= Try it then, if you must.
IGNAZIO= But you do it. Let me see what happens.
MICHELLE= Me? No, if I touch him, it’s happy. (laughs)
You touch it first, go. (applause) Please go if you must. (Ignazio crushes the cube, but there is only one raspberry)
IGNAZIO= Oh, just like that?
MICHELLE= You touched it wrong, when you touch it wrong it happens like this.
MICHELLE= Go, go. (Piero squashes but only a raspberry). You have to touch it with feeling, understand?
PIERO= (addressing one of the laughing audience) You, I’ll see you later (jokes).
MICHELLE= Feeling, do you want to see how it is with feeling? Are you ready?
IGNAZIO= Go! (Michelle crushes and nothing happens)

MICHELLE= So?? But did something unspeakable have to start?
MAESTRO= Evidently there wasn’t the feeling that there should have been.
IGNAZIO= I’ll take care of it…with feeling we said (Ignazio brings the cube and crushes it with his forehead)
PIERO = Good night…..
MICHELLE= Enough let’s go on…..(but Ignazio starts singing sweet Notting Hill, Gianluca immediately joins in while Michelle and Piero dance

MICHELLE= All right guys the time has come for my request as a Vololover, for me and for my mum, you must do me a great pleasure, you know I wrote you a message before winning Sanremo and I wrote you that you would have won, I brought luck, so now I would like you to sing Grande Amore for me and for my mother, Ineke, who is at home.
PIERO= Before singing Grande Amore I have to tell you two things:
1= we sing it only if you sing it with us….
MICHELLE= Alright.
PIERO=…. 2= the project that we presented this evening to sing individually and then always gather together, which is our strength when all three of us sing together, we will present this project which is called  TUTTI PER UNO (ALL FOR ONE) in just two evenings on this network Canale 5 in May.
MICHELLE= Ah, a big event on Channel 5.
GIANLUCA= We will go back to the Arena.  (I already have tickets for May 1st )
MICHELLE= I can’t wait.
PIERO= And it’s called UNO PER TUTTI – ALL FOR ONE…… tonight’s was a completely organized scene….
MICHELLE= But don’t say that….
IGNAZIO= Anyway, don’t delete our (telephone) numbers if we go back to Sanremo, who knows, you’ll write to us again.
MICHELLE= Of course. (laughter)
IGNAZIO= So you sing with us?
MICHELLE= But if you want to take that risk…
PIERO= Have you reviewed Grande Amore?
MICHELLE= Yes, in the dressing room, I reviewed it again, now I’m like real singers who wear inears. (Ignazio knelt down to give her the microphone)
PIERO= The proposal is being made to you.
MICHELLE= Then I am like Blanco who doesn’t hear anything (Blanco is a singer who didn’t hear the music in the inears at the last Sanremo). 
Ok, how do we position ourselves?
IGNAZIO= As you wish, do you want to stay here, do you want to stay there.
PIERO= Maestro!
MICHELLE= I would like you to be united, I want to put you back together, because this moment is solemn, and every now and then I get into the song.
IGNAZIO= All right.
GIANLUCA= We are about to sing Grande Amore with Michelle Hunziker (applause)

MICHELLE= I can’t wait! Maestro!
IGNAZIO= Maestro! (Grande Amore begin)
MICHELLE= Il Volo (applause)
Thank you, you are fantastic! But how can you not love this song and these guys.
GIANLUCA= But thank you.
MICHELLE= I would like a man to dedicate these words to me looking into my eyes and tonight you did it in three….
IGNAZIO= Tell me that never, that you will never leave me. (he quotes the lyrics of the song)
MICHELLE= How good you are, a big round of applause again for Il Volo!!
Carry on with your tour in South America.
IGNAZIO= Thank you! One very quick thing: thank you, because you are one of the few people who makes us feel really good, makes us feel spontaneous, and makes us feel at home, so thank you very much, you are a wonderful person. Obviously they don’t know you at home, like maybe as well we know you and you really are a wonderful person. Thank you so much for inviting us!
MICHELLE= Do you want to make me cry?
GIANLUCA= But it’s true, it’s what we feel.
PIERO= It’s the truth.
IGNAZIO= Thank you musician, thank you so much you are amazing. Many thanks to all of you (to the audience) because you are the most important part and every artist owes so much to their audience, because you are the reason why we do this job.
GIANLUCA and PIERO= Thanks!!
IGNAZIO= See you in May.
MICHELLE= We get ‘em out with the final chorus of Grande Amore, come on, let’s get ‘em out big!
I don’t want you to go out like this, I want you to go out great. (final chorus of Grande Amore begins, greetings to all) ❤❤❤


This still image on PC was sent by Piero from Ecuador to show that they were watching MICHELLE IMPOSSIBLE from Ecuador.


It was a really beautiful program. Michelle, an elegant, kind and nice hostess, immediately put our treasures at ease, who gave their best, both in speeches and in songs.
Great to have them exhibited individually and then join them in the final. I’ve read many enthusiastic comments about their performances, from people who wouldn’t have listened to them like Il Volo, but seeing them separately, not only listened to them, but were pleasantly impressed by their undeniable skill.
I had fun translating everything for you, even if I fell behind with the descriptions of the concerts in South America. I can’t wait to see Il Volo in May at the Verona Arena.
Have fun everyone, I’ll add other things at the bottom that you will surely enjoy seeing and reading!!

Il Volo to WETTEN DAS 2011

And here is the beautiful post made by Marie in 2014 after meeting Piero in the hotel gym.
It’s really fun to read about Piero wanting to take a picture of Marie’s tattoo and her asking Piero if she can take his picture.
You will have fun reading it and seeing how young Piero was!!
Marie, if you read today’s long post you’ll be happy to know that Piero hasn’t forgotten that moment and still talks about it today.
A big hug Marie !! ❤😘

Marie’s Excellent Adventure ~ Piero ~ The Final Chapter

Three years ago, after learning that the guys were going home because of COVID, I started checking the fans pages to see what I could find out. What I found out was people were very concerned that the guys were going into the COVID zone, Italy. Little did we know that we would follow them.
The guys did what they had to do. They left to be with their families.
I was not a person who went on fan pages. I was always too busy to stop and read all that people had to say.  But suddenly, I wasn’t busy. In fact, I was completely shut down. No business, nothing! That’s what led me to start reading the fan pages. After a few days I realized that the fans were making themselves crazy over the guys going back to Italy so, I decided to write an article about it. I posted the article on Facebook and some of the administrators of the Il Volo fan groups started to message me. Can we post your article? Then they followed up with can you write another article. Well, I had nothing to do so I said yes!
At one point I received a message from Daniela Perani who asked if she could post my article on Il Volo Flight Crew! I said yes, and three years later I have my own column (every Wednesday) and the rest is history!
So, today, three years later, I am posting the original article which Daniela posted. I’ve included her remarks so you can get a feel for how this all went down!  So here I am Talking About Our Guys ~ Three Years Later.
Daniela’s comment:
Reading, here and there on the various sites and fan pages, I found this beautiful article written by Susan De Bartoli. Several fan pages have recognized the goodness of this beautiful article by publishing it. Since maybe not all of you who follow Flight Crew may have read it, I thought I’d post it here too, and I asked Susan for her confirmation to do so. Here’s what she wrote.

Over the last few days, I’ve been thinking about how our lives have changed in just two weeks. It’s surreal! I try to distract myself but it’s difficult to get away from it all. So, I decided to focus on something else. I can usually get lost in my writing. You know before I started my travel business in 1990, I worked in the motion picture industry. I used to critique films. It was a good job but, I decided I wanted to do more with my life so, I quit my job and I spent two years writing. The best years of my life. So, where am I going with all of this?
Like most of you, right now, I spend a good deal of my day listening to those three amazing guys sing and I said maybe I should do a review of what’s been going on in their lives for the last 10 years. I think, over the last few days, I must have watched hundreds of video clips including interviews and some full concerts and now I’m ready to Talk About Our Guys.

Let me start off by saying these three young men are extraordinary! They are remarkable, exceptional, persons. And, they have revolutionized the music industry. Let’s take a look at each one.

Gianluca is known as the Velvet Voice! I don’t who coined the phrase but, that is right on. Let’s use our senses to understand what that means. Take a piece of velvet and hold it in your hand. Now take your other hand and gently pass your hand across the velvet. What do you feel? You feel a smooth even surface that is crisp with no breaks in it. The sensation is so good that you automatically go back and do it again. And every time it’s the same. It’s pleasing!
Now take Gianluca’s voice, let the notes pass into your ears, what do you hear? A crisp, smooth, even voice with no breaks in it. The note barely passes into your ear, and you are going back for the next note. It’s always pleasing!
Gianluca is a lyrical baritone. He is exceptional because he can sing from the lowest to the highest note in the baritone range. Most baritones are limited in range. Gianluca’s voice is huge. He has a very rich chest resonance which creates a feeling of depth and drama in his voice.

A baritone voice is very romantic, very pleasing to listen to and is always inviting. Most songs are written for baritones. Gianluca starts, almost, every song. Why? In order for a song to be received well you must draw your audience into it. Gianluca’s voice draws you in in a romantic way and you hang on to every note. He can mesmerize you with songs like “Mi Mancherai” where he reaches into the depth of your being. His interpretation of “Surrender” is electrifying.

But, when Gianluca sings, “She’s Always a Woman”, he takes your breath away. The highs, the lows, the emotion, the expression. His voice expands like nothing I ever heard before. He has total command of the song. You walk away with your senses lifted to another level.

Let’s talk about Ignazio, who I call the bridge. He is a lyrical tenor. He, like Gianluca, is exceptional because he can sing from the lowest to the highest note in the tenor range. And God knows he can, easily, hit the high C. Waiting for it and knowing it’s going to happen is so exciting! He brings so much to the production, and I’ll talk more about that later!

A lyrical tenor has a warm graceful voice which is bright and strong but not heavy and it can be heard over an orchestra. Ignazio’s voice is smooth, clean and clear, with an acute extension. His voice has the ability to increase the baritone voice of Gianluca while softening the spinto tenor voice of Piero.
Ignazio has many faces. He is very whimsical in his songs as in “Libiamo ne’ lieti calici”  from La Traviata. In the aria “Una Furtiva Lagrima” from L’elisir D’amore, Ignazio makes you feel the innocents of Nemorino’s love for Adina.
In his dedication to Pino Daniele you hear an interpretation that is emotional and a delivery that is so amazing that you get the sense that Daniele wrote his songs for Ignazio.
Ignazio’s voice is the one that brings it all together!
I certainly look for every excuse to include one of my favorite songs. Nobody else can sing it like Ignazio! Just thrilling! “Quando l’amore diventa poesia.” 

And finally, Piero. Piero is a spinto (meaning pushed) tenor. A spinto tenor has the brightness and height of a lyric tenor, but with a heavier vocal weight enabling the voice to be “pushed” to dramatic climaxes with less strain than his lighter-voice counterparts. His voice is warm, graceful, bright, and can be heard over an orchestra.

Piero has a powerful voice that easily reaches the higher notes. Every note that comes out of his mouth reaches us with such intensity and remains with us for a long time. It’s the voice that reaches out to you and demands your attention.

Think of Piero singing “E Lucevan le Stele” from Tosca. Or singing the beautiful Spanish aria “No Puede Ser” from A Tabernera del Puerto. From the first note Piero pierces your soul! His passion comes through in his music. Arias are very dramatic and, Piero brings all the drama of the aria into his performance. Always a showstopper!

Now let’s put the voices together. Gianluca starts most songs because he is a baritone, and most songs are written for baritones. As I mentioned he draws you into the song. Gianluca will sing (in most cases) to Ignazio and Ignazio to Piero. This is how the three voices become one. Select one of their songs. Now close your eyes and listen to them sing. What can you say about this song? You can say, that is Gianluca or Ignazio or Piero singing. In the progression of the song, you hear the voices blend to form a symphony for your ears. Their voices are very distinct.

Most groups sing and you hear just a song but with Il Volo you are surrounded by voices. And the individuality of their voices entices you and it stays with you. “Musica che Resta”. (Music that Remains) Think of what Piero says when he introduces one of the solos, “After we were together a while, we realized we had three different voices.” He wasn’t saying that they suddenly found out they had different voices he was saying we are Tres Voces un Alma (three voices and one soul) and, we need to show you those voices individually.
Let’s look at how they described one another when they first started out. I think Ignazio said Gianluca was the serious one, and Piero was the Intelligent one and Gianluca and Piero said Ignazio was the funny one. So, let’s take a look at that.

Gianluca, in most cases, is the spokesman for the group. I’m not sure if this is by chance or choice. He seems to always take the lead when they are in interviews. And he is constantly monitoring the conversation. A good example is the video that was going around recently. It’s the one with the story about the shrimps. The boys were appearing on a Spanish show and Piero was telling the story about Gianluca and Ignazio’s food fight, when they were teenagers, and he mistakenly used the Spanish word cama (bed) instead of the Spanish word cara (face) which turns the story from them throwing shrimps into one another’s face into throwing shrimps at each other in bed. Gianluca picked up on this and immediately corrected the mistake while Ignazio and Piero got hysterical laughing.

Piero is the intelligent one perhaps because he thinks everything through. In interviews he thinks before he speaks, and his answers are always intelligent. He’s very serious and you can tell he thought out the answer before he spoke. And I’m sure that’s what makes his performance so great!
And, Ignazio, the funny one. And that he is! But is it really about the joke? Or is it more about the production. Let’s turn to the production.
The stage is simple. One sign that says it all – Il Volo. There’s the orchestra. Guitars, drum, piano, violins and whatever other instruments are needed for the performance. I want you to stop and think about the performance. We know these guys have three amazing voices but, what if they got on the stage and for two hours, they did nothing but sing. I don’t think it would work. A performance needs the ability to move on. There’s no change of scenery and no intermission so how do you move the performance along? Ignazio!!! The joking he brings into the performance provides the levity to relieve the seriousness of the performance. He brings a certain ease and suspense to the performance. The audience is always wondering, what will he do next. But is it always about joking? I want you to think about what I’m saying. Ignazio is constantly moving around the stage. He’s dancing and keeping the rhythm. He’s swinging the microphone around and constantly nodding towards the orchestra, Gianluca and Piero. Is that the lead up to a joke? I don’t think so. Let me tell you what you are looking at. Ignazio is following every note that is sung or played on that stage. His mind is in motion. He is sensitive and passionate with the music. He has the ability to see the music as it is happening. He knows where every instrument should come in and out. That’s why you notice little things like him smiling, nodding, pointing towards the musicians, Gianluca or Piero. He also grabs the baton from the conductor, sometimes to joke but more often to conduct.

Think about Ignazio conducting the Asti Symphony Orchestra while Marcello Rota sang his tenor part. He wasn’t joking, he was conducting. And that’s why everyone was watching him in amazement. And when it was over, they were speechless. Look at Michele Torpedine go across the stage to embrace him. He is in awe of this young man. Ignazio is music! You call him funny I call him brilliant! I am going to make a prediction here! Remember you heard it here first. Ignazio will compose a great opera and will probably also write the libretto for it.

An early interview. Talking from the heart!  Very sincere!

Let’s go back to the beginning. When these three young men started out, they were 15 and 16 years old. Think of being 15 or 16 years old and you have a dream, and someone tells you that that dream, needs to be shared. To fulfill that dream you have to leave your family, your friends, your home, you have to go to another country, and you have to share this journey with two people who you really know nothing about except that they had the same dream you did. You have to trust that the decision that was made by you and your family, was the right decision. If not, it’s back to square one! You’re going to be lonely, and you have to learn to survive without the people you love. So, you learn to lean on one another. That dependence turns into a friendship and that friendship into a brotherhood. It enabled them to trust enough to collaborate and perfect something truly amazing. Something that revolutionized the music industry. Let me go further by showing you a collaboration by these three amazing, very, very talented, young men that is so unreal that it boggles your mind. This is a collaboration of love. Stop and listen to this performance of “Por Una Cabeza”.

Look at how they smile at one another during the performance. A smile that says yes that’s it! Their faces are ablaze! Their expressions let one another know that it works. And, finally, when it’s over, they are so excited they can hardly contain themselves. Look at their smiles, their faces are lit up in joy and their embrace says it all! They are brothers who love one another!

Daniela’s final comment:
Susan, I really have to thank you for your nice words, you hit the mark in the description of Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero.
Thanks also for allowing the publication.
We will be happy to have your other posts if you wish.
A hug from the whole Flight Crew family.
Well, obviously, I continued to write for Flight Crew!
How do I see things now. I see the guys more mature with voices that are more amazing each day! The sweetness is still there, and they still share their lives with the fans.
Sometimes it’s difficult writing about the guys because they’ve lived a lifetime and experienced things that most entertainers only experience late in their careers. They are so young and have truly lived a lifetime of dreams. Since the column is called Through the Fields of My Mind, I must talk about the past. Sometimes I think, how many ways can I tell the same story and then, I read your comments and I realize it’s new every time and there is always someone who has never heard the story before. All in all, I still enjoy Talking About Our Guys ~ Three Years Later.
Just a final note, I will be leaving for South America next week. I will be away for three weeks. Since I don’t know what the internet will be like in South America, I decided to bring you three individual stories about the guys. They go back to the beginning before they were Il Volo! You can continue to message and email me but I’m not sure when I will see the messages.
While I am away, I would suggest you read my weekly story on because I don’t know if I will be able to post to the individual fan pages. You can go on Flight Crew and sign up for email and the story will be automatically emailed to you when it is published. While you’re there, visit the Archives and read all the old stories!
Now for you listening pleasure The Concert in Verona 2015

Join me next week as I go back Through the Fields of My Mind and open the door to a new adventure!

And here we are at the time of the first concert of this LATAM TOUR 2023, and Guatemala will host the first stage of this long South American tour.
There is a lot of anticipation for this concert, tickets are sold out and here is this video documenting the people patiently waiting to enter.
So nice to see the first fan who has all the Il Volo CDs with her, too strong!!
She says she has been following them since 2009, she says that Il Volo sings beautiful songs very well. Her favorite song is O Sole Mio, then she says she doesn’t have the new EP because it’s digital only and of course she answers right when asked for the boys’ names: Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero!! 😊
And here we are at the beginning of the concert, how exciting, we start with ECSTASY OF GOLD.
All the videos that I offer you of the concerts are short videos taken during the evening, hardly anyone has filmed entire songs.
The lineup of songs has changed, there are always the “IL Volo classics”, but several songs in Spanish have been included.
Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca started the concert in a very elegant way, wearing beautiful leather jackets, all the three in total black, very beautiful, but then they changed the jackets for some very shiny ones, and in any case always elegant.


A long high note in Ignazio’s solo: ALMENO TU NELL’UNIVERSO.
Nice summary video from CLARO GUATEMALA.

I am so happy with this success for Il Volo in Guatemala. Reading the various comments, I found this beautiful one from a fan, which I’m sure you will appreciate a lot.

Definitely, each and every one of them makes each moment of their presentation something beautiful and wonderful!!!!, something sublime!!

Every moment with them sticks in the soul and is never forgotten.
His staging, his jovial dialogues, his complicity, his brotherly love, his puns touches….. complement those beautiful voices, those beautiful harmonies.

Those unforgettable and always adored interpretations of their classic and unforgettable Italian and international songs, their duets, their solos, but best of all their trios, which are the essence of the group, where these three wonderful voices converge, these three complementary personalities in a unique mold that gives personality to the group, without anyone losing their nature.
The interpretations that elevate the classic Latin melodies to superlative levels, in their deep, educated, harmonic, professional voices; all this envelops the hearts of all his listeners, those present and the video listeners, in a fantastic cloud of harmony, brotherly love and sweetness.

It is incredible that the feeling of being in a fantasy world does not stop appearing every time they appear together on stage.

Without pretending more than what is a beautiful feeling for me, I dare to say that I am sure that this is how El Paraíso must be and how it must feel, or at least it is very close. . … Total admiration, a lot of affection, great respect from Colombia.

What magnificent words…………………………but we leave immediately, destination El Salvador, there are two days before the next concert.

In San Salvador immediately there is an interview with LA PRENSA GRAFICA, here it is (enable subtitles in English).

Sure, Gianluca always points out the importance of letting young people listen to traditional music, and that’s why they made the EP of traditional Latin songs, so that young people don’t forget their roots.
Very nice that Il Volo takes care of romantic music, beautiful music ……. in this world of rap, reggaeton etc. etc.
An interview follows: DIARIO El Salvador. (english subtitles)

The same interview is also transcribed by El, accompanied by these beautiful photos.

Then an interview with radio GLOBO. (english subtitles)

Below is a passage in a TV program entitled VLM (Viva La Manana).
Nice this short of video, where someone among those present shouts to sing a piece of song and Gianluca replies that they will sing tonight (in concert).
Then Piero greets everyone and says that they are IL Volo, that they come from Italy to come and sing in this wonderful country.
Then Gianluca adds that they will do it tonight and that they can’t wait after 4 years of absence. Ignazio greets everyone. Piero adds that it will be a night of music by three Italians. But the presenter insists on doing a small piece of song and so Piero Ignazio and Gianluca start TAN INAMORDOS acapella. Applause.

And here we are at the moment of the concert.
Piero Ignazio and Gianluca, elegant in blue suits.







UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE (spanish vesion)

IL MONDO (spanish version), and more


Greetings from the El Salvador fan club.


A nice video that summarizes the concert from LA PRENSA GRAFICA.

Diary of El Salvador wrote like this:
The pop-lyrical trio Il Volo delighted the Salvadoran public tonight with a selected musical repertoire where romanticism reigned and the spectacular voices of the three young Italian tenors (Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble). Successes of Ricardo Montaner, José José, Luis Miguel, among others, resounded in the voices of the Italians. 🎼🎤🇮🇹 – David Martinez.
Also nice is this summary video of the concert made by EL UNIVERSAL SV where you can see the arrival of the people and the Salvadoran violinist who opened the Il Volo concert, very good, very good everyone.

(english subtitles)

And so the first two concerts are already over, Il Volo couldn’t have started their LatAm tour in a better way.
But once again I want to conclude with Luz’s beautiful words. 
Daniela 🤗


All the projects they undertake, all their tours, all their activities together, all the songs performed by the three of them, reach superlative levels.

They give a beautiful and unique touch to each song, each project, each activity, which they choose for their repertoire.

They especially have that beautiful touch of feelings and emotions hidden in their hearts and that springs up in every word that comes from their true artists’ soul. What beautiful sensations arise in the soul when seeing them, hearing them because all their presentations are wonderful; to enjoy from beginning to end with these melodies, so beautifully interpreted, indisputable is the immense emotion to appreciate, enjoy, and dream when the THREE UNITED sing, it is there where we are transported to paradise, a place from where we would never want to return.

May God allow them to never be separated, that intelligence, voice, tenderness, joviality, fraternal love, professionalism, support from their families, support from their cities of origin, support from their manager and assistant, from the master pianist and his band, and other equipment; be always present so that thus united, they can conquer a thousand more universes, because this world is already theirs. Great admiration, immense affection and much respect from Colombia.

The Il Volo adventure in South America has begun!

Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, as announced, left on Sunday February 19 for Mexico, to be able to participate in a television program and hold a press conference.
And here are three videos upon their arrival at the airport in Mexico.

Video 1 – Click Here

Video 2 – Click Here

Video 3 – Click Here

Translation: They came out more handled than market fruit but happy. 💗💗💗
But who wouldn’t have been happy after such a welcome, after 4 years of not returning to Mexico, certainly their fans haven’t forgotten Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero!! 😘
They held a press conference early on Monday morning in the presence of many journalists.
Here is the video. (there are English subtitles)

The words said at the beginning by Gianluca are beautiful, thanking their Mexican fans and saying that it is wonderful to return after 4 years of absence due to the pandemic, in this country that has always welcomed them with so much affection.
Piero also explains that the TRE VOCES UN ALMA project was conceived as a gift for their Latin fans who have not been able to see them for 4 years.
Kindly, Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero also performed IL MONDO a cappella. I think I understand that the journalists were very happy with the interview, in fact there were numerous newspaper articles and tweets that talked about Il Volo!!

IL Volo was also interviewed by Sergio Mejia for the OYE DIGITAL program.

In the place where the press conference was held, Ignazio noticed something 😁, always funny our Ignazio!

Ignazio Video – Click Here

Then they intervened in a television program VENGA LA ALEGRIA.

Here’s the video.


Then they attended the ticket signing event, which was only for 100 people, if I’m not mistaken.



The following morning they participated in the early morning program SALE EN SOL, here’s the video with English subtitles.
