Il Volo Off Stage: Fun and Games

offstageIt is true that Il Volo is on the move again, slowly making their way to the US for their upcoming tour, but they have still found time to share some off duty things with us.  How sweet is it that they do so?

“Standing Ovation” ~ Daniela

Behold the participation of Il Volo to “Standing Ovation”.


In the first video the guys with Antonella joke because it’s Friday the 17th, we have this number brings bad luck, especially on Friday. Antonella says she does not believe in these things and the boys confirm but when she leaves them make their fingers crossed. In the transmission there are three judges, NEK you know well, Romina Power, which I know well as the wife of Albano and daughter of Tyrone Power. The third judge is Loredana Bertè, she is a good rock star, she did not mince her words and if something does not like it says in the face, but it seems to me that she was very glad of the performance of the boys, in fact, she sang with them. At the end of the GRANDE AMORE they speak a little of the American and European tour and the guys say that the better side when they return to their Italia.   It ‘was a good performance and the guys were great as always.


RTL102.5 ~ Daniela

On February 15th Il Volo were guests of RTL102.5 in radiovision. They have sung live, but they showed a good 8 videos: They said that London will host Mario Biondi who sang with them in the House Party. There will be a zero date in Roccaraso Italy Abruzzo May 3 but Gianluca let slip that they are preparing something to aid earthquake for Abruzzo. They also said they will go to Kazakhstan, Romania, Bulgaria, Poland. They asked the boys as they do with families as they are often away and they said that when they want to return and I can go by families whereas they think young people who are forced to work to get away from home, go abroad and do not see the families for a long time, Piero Ignazio and Gianluca have said they admire about these guys. They also said that were not previously known in Italy because after TI LASCIO UNA CANZONE went abroad and were like three nerds, but then when they came back with the Vespa broadcasts have begun to have visibility and then of course Sanremo and the fact that they had recorded the unpublished pushed them to greater audience. In addition to Italian tour we have added a date in Ancona and also another date in Rome and maybe they said it could become easily Tormina 4 dates, jokingly said that the date more is for relatives of Piero. ~Daniela


Although the interview is in Italian, Daniela has given us the brief synopsis above.  The interview contains some excellent video clips.

Stay with it because at the very end Piero goes to get…

our Flight Crew member Maura Pucci and brings her to the table.  Maura!  How did you do that?  How wonderful! 


That’s her standing beside Gianluca, who she claims as her 11th grandchild.





Radio2 Social Club ~ Daniela

Hello Flight Crew,

Today was the day of radio interviews, at 14.30 there was an interview with RAIRADIO2 only for radio and a short piece on facebook, the boys sang several songs live from the usual, Ignazio performed two songs by Pino Daniele, Gianluca performed “Sempre per sempre” song by De Gregori who had also performed at Arena and Piero performed a song “A mano a mano” by Cocciante, another Italian singer-songwriter very good. Cute and funny were as usual.

They are great!







Personally Speaking ~~ Growing Up Il Volo Style

The following is an excerpt taken from a famous poem written by  

Dorothy Law Nolte



If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.

If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.

If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.

If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.

If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.

If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.

If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.

If children live with fairness, they learn justice.

If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.

If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves

and in those around them.

If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

One Hundred Years From Now

It won’t matter what kind of car I drove

What kind of house I lived in

How much  money I had in the bank

Nor what my clothes looked like

But the world may be a little better

Because I was important

In the life of a boy.

Forest E. Witcraft

A heartfelt thank you to these parents, Grandparents, Michele,  Barbara, Placido and many others for being so very important in the life of these boys.
