Watch Out Montepagano, Gian is on the Road!!

Yes, our youngest Il Volo guy, has finally attained his last rite of passage into official adulthood!

Today, he got his driver’s license.  No more riding around with mom and dad, he can now cruise the highways and byways of Italy, along with Ignazio and Piero!

Congratulations, amico mio!  Take it easy out there and always wear your seatbelt. 🙂

And of course if you are not driving your car, you are out riding the waves of the beautiful Adriatic.   Thanks for these gorgeous pictures and to Rock me il volo on Instagram for posting as well.

GOSSIP GOSSIP : ARE THE GUYS FROM IL VOLO SINGLE? by Daniela

On POMERIGGIO 5, a known gossip TV program, today there was a video that talked about IL VOLO.Gossip 01

This transmission is very popular in Italy, and the guys have also been guests in the studio. This time it’s just a video and it’s gossip, about any new girls of Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero.

https://www.mediasetplay.mediaset.it/video/pomeriggiocinque/aaa-cercasi-grande-amore_F309209201003C04

So, from whom do we start talking today? Let’s start with Il VOLO?

From my friends at IL VOLO.

Those are full of females.

Let’s start like this.

Women from all over the world, come forward . . . the three guys from IL VOLO, are single!

It was a long time since this astral coincidence has occurred, but at this moment, it seems that Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero, are going through a phase of total sentimental freedom.

To prove it, the photos, taken during a holiday in Taormina, where the three entertain themselves, with as many young maidens.

And to say, that the latest news in our possession, both Gianluca, and Ignazio, seemed happily engaged, the first with Martina, with whom he had been a couple for two years, and the second with Alessandra, his historic girlfriend, with whom he was said, it would soon be married.

Instead, here they are, all single, and all at sea, ready to make new friends and new conquests.

Gianluca, immediately finds his place in the pool, next to a prosperous girl with dark and smooth hair, with whom he talks while relaxing in the water.

Piero, the only single for the longest time, with the bandana on his head, as he wants the fashion of the moment, is ready to go on the attack of a nice blonde.

While Ignazio, at the water, prefers the tennis court, always in good company, of a young and beautiful girl with slender legs, and he seems particularly interested.

In short, the three tenors, they enjoy flying, from flower to flower, although, of course, they are always looking for the GRANDE AMORE !!!

Gossip 02

Honestly, with all that can be said about our boys, talking about their talents or their concerts, these TV shows take them into consideration only to talk about gossip ……. it is also true that, among their talents , there is also beauty and youth, so these videos of gossip are justified, but ….. take them with the tongs, these news, they are never founded !!!!

 Mollysianna’s photos , thank you!

PIERO, IGNAZIO AND GIANLUCA AND POSITIVE MESSAGES by Daniela

Positive 01

A few days ago, during the presence at the Festival Show in Trieste, the boys took a picture, while they were holding a t-shirt with messages written against those who drive and use the phone.

Perhaps some of you have not paid particular attention to this picture, which I now propose to you.

The GUIDE E BASTA advertising campaign is promoted in Italy in order to sensitize drivers, especially young people, to the use and abuse and risks of using a mobile phone while driving a vehicle.

Positive 02

Using a mobile phone while driving is one of the main causes of serious car accidents.

It is enough to look away even a moment from the road to lose control of the vehicle and cause a car accident with unimaginable consequences.

For this reason, the boys have lent their image, in this picture above.

They also shot this video.

I = Hi guys, we are IL VOLO, everyone’s life is very important, so …..

P = ….. of course we are so much in the car, so when we want to stay on the phone, let’s let someone else drive ….

G = …… then guide and stop mobile

Positive 03

I find it extremely positive that the boys, lend their image to messages of this kind.

In addition, they often adhere to events with a charitable purpose, such as the concert in which they will participate in a few days.

Good guys, come on like this, I’m proud of you.

IL VOLO are expected as guests.

Here they came for the usual rehearsals of the evening. But one is missing, where is Piero?  He will be late.

Trieste 03

Here is the afternoon interview.

INTERVIEWER = The most prestigious and international guests, highly anticipated for this final, this year, welcome to the guys of IL VOLO, two out of three, then Piero will arrive, later.

I = I tried to eliminate him. (Piero)

G = Hello everyone, Piero is missing but he will come.

INTERVIEWER = You have made the holidays this year, after your tour. I saw you leave from Sanremo, we said goodbye the next day and you left to travel the world.

I = Yes, we did a tour, then we rested, this year, I in Sicily.

INTERVIEWER = Did you split?

G = Yes, of course, everyone returns home for the summer and rests, but now, the holidays stop because we have to go back to work. Next year there will be many surprises, new music, new songs.

INTERVIEWER= Also cinema. You are working around the world and now in all countries you are clearly expected as great stars, and also in Italy, even if Italy has arrived after the others. What is the country where you feel welcomed warmly?

I = Surely as a type of character, Italy, then there is Latin-America where they are very warm ….. can you say?

G = Of course we can say, Argentina, Brazil, it’s nice to see how they appreciate the music, the Italian bel canto, which is appreciated all over the world. Then what we try to do, is to bring the bel canto to everyone, not only to Italians, especially to all young people.

INTERVIEWER = Before, when you were trying out the songs, all the people in the cafes got up, and all the foreign people in the square approached to listen to you, many are here for you tonight.

I= It’s definitely nice, to get to make tradition and culture, and it is the thing that gives us more pleasure when we travel, which however Italian culture is always well-liked, around the world, is truly admired and loved.

G=And then it will be a great emotion to sing again, in this wonderful square after three years. We made the first concert in Trieste in the summer of 2015, immediately after the victory at the Sanremo Festival. We are really happy to be here.

INTERVIEWER = And we can not wait to see you again, thank you very much to IL VOLO for having been with us.

I = Thanks to you, it was a pleasure.

Despite the heavy rain, the guys were really very professional.

We hope they have not caught a cold, although I think so many would rush to treat them!

Next step . . . Taormina !!

A Sad Loss – The Tragic Fire of National Museum of Brazil

It is with heavy hearts that we share in the sadness of this grave tragedy that afflicted Rio on Sunday.  To AAIV and all fans of Il Volo in Brazil and South America, please know our thoughts are with you.  My current boss was born in Rio, Brazil, so I, too, have a connection to this.  😦

There is a very nice and in-depth article published by the NY Times, of which I am providing the link:  https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/03/world/americas/brazil-museum-fire.html

 

It said the museum did not have a fire suppression system, but was due to get a $5 million dollar grant/overhaul soon, which included a fire suppression system.

From Wikipedia & https://travel.sygic.com/en/poi/national-museum-of-brazil-poi:29978 :

The picture above is also from this site…

National Museum of Brazil
Local name:  Museu Nacional
Location:  Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The National Museum is the oldest scientific institution of Brazil and one of the largest museums of natural history and anthropology in the Americas. The museum is located inside the Quinta da Boa Vista park, in the city of Rio de Janeiro, and is installed in the Paço de São Cristóvão. The palace served as residence for the Portuguese Royal Family between 1808 and 1821, housed the Brazilian Imperial Family between 1822 and 1889, and also hosted the Republican Constituent Assembly from 1889 to 1891, before being assigned to the use of the museum in 1892.
