These four pictures from Guatemala were sent to me because they “Seem to show special light-filled peaceful, joyous smiles!”  Who would write like that?




This  beauty was shared with us by someone whose 1st initial is "M".   She recently said she was sending something special. Did she make this?  You'll have to ask her.

I have to add this one.  It's my favorite Latin America Concert  photo.  No, it's not because of the Dreamboat singing "Maria".  It's the woman.  I have no idea who she is.  I have named her JOY!   The question was going to be, why I named her that.  But it would be such a stupid question.

  1. What a tour the boys have had. Hope they can have some R & R soon. Looking forward to their Christmas Concert on PBS. Their Christmas CD is wonderful. Taking it to FL with me so friends down there can hear it. Love to the boys from Nonna Maureen

  2. AlI I know is this young lady is just in heaven being so close to Ignazio, smiley and darling fellow that he is. Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio are just marvelous to see, hear, keep up with and enjoy. I am a Gramma fan and have my hopes for these young men to get some deserved rest and get home safely to their families, especially for the holidays. Enjoy hearing from other fans. My best.

      1. No, I’m not. I’m hoping to see them next yr. when they return to IL…saving my $$$!! Ha-Ha

  3. Don’t know for sure, but I would think it had to be Ignazio. Here lately, the kindness in him has been totally evident! He doesn’t even have to try. What is it people say, kindness wins every time? Ignazio, you are a blessing!

  4. Thanks for sharing these smiles with us, Harriet. Yes, this grandma is also hoping some much deserved R&R will put more joy back behind those Il Volo smiles. I’m so impressed that they can continue to smile thru their grueling schedule. Was just looking at pics from Italy in August before their trip and it was wonderful to see them so relaxed and happy! We are so lucky they are spreading joy to all of us.

  5. Is answer #3 mfa?? You’ve shared such sweet gifts with us, Michele, so just guessin’!

    And LOVE “Joy” as well as the moment of chemistry with our beloved Ignazio!

    I think I know #1, but I’ll wait and see what others say.
    Mary’s, you’re lookin’ great!

    Another fun one, Marie!
    Love ya,

  6. The Marys are plotting strategy for the CD signing in Minnesota!
    Love that picture of Ignazio and “Joy!” He seems to be having a VERY good time!

    1. Yes Penina, that’s exactly what those two beauties are planning! Doesn’t it look like they’re going to have fun? Hey, they told me dinner but all I see is the bar! I know we all want to go with them. To the signing not the bar. Well…

  7. So sorry, I misunderstood what was happening on this page, but I don’t take back my comment about Ignazio. It’s amazing to me that the boys have earned our adoration on so many levels, by just being themselves. How many young groups can compare? NONE. Credit goes to them, and to their upbringing. So wonderful to see in todays world, don’t you think?

    1. Agreed, Kitty! The very fact of being themselves / ourselves in this world is a huge gift and accomplishment! How does it get any better than to be the bright Lights they / we were born to be? (; >)

      Off to dreamland,

    2. Oh, I agree wholeheartedly, it is amazing. Just being their sincere, kind selves comes right through in their singing and faces, in addition to their attitude. Their families instilled fine, generous values in each of them. They seem to keep them grounded and thankful….love listening and keeping up with them. Gramma fan

    1. Elaine in response to your question on the previous page which I just saw. If you tell me where Ignazio is going to be when he comes back to the States I will make that dish & present it to him personally with the hopes of expecting only a hug. Now you have given me a great idea.

  8. the four pics showing “light filled peaceful joyous smiles is definately from Jeanine Dubois. Were the 2 Mary’s discussing their plans to go to Detroit? Marie says Ignazio with “Joy” is her favorite latin american tour photo, yes it is nice, but my favorite is Gianluca in his White jacket extending his hand out for the fans and they are grabbing onto his arm and his smile is so sweet, he made those girls night (year) (lifetime)!

  9. Jeanine, you can not hide so don’t try! Correct! Detroit is wrong however, they’re talking about an even colder place. I know that picture of Gianluca Chris. It’s heart stopping!

    1. Ya nailed it, Christine. LOL, Marie! Interesting that when I sent those photos to Marie, I thought how I was wishing I could share them with the whole Flight Crew, as Our Boys look so amazingly beautiful (yes, and full of Light and peace). Ah ha! Once again those “wouldn’t it be wonderful if…” thoughts comes to pass! I never dreamed that it would and certainly not in this way.
      You have such clever and fun ideas, Marie!

      Oh, there was a close-up (Mundial?) from that image of Gianluca, too. I think I know one or two of you who might like the close-up! (; >)

      Still curious about our gift #3 question!

  10. Marie, you are too funny!!! I didn’t even realize we were all but hugging the bar in this picture. 🙂 We REALLY DID EAT! 🙂 Can’t wait for Black Friday…praying we don’t get a snow storm. Mary B. you are close enough where you could trudge through the snow to get to them, BUT it would be a little trickier for me. ALTHOUGH…I could walk through sky high snow drifts…trod through mud, sleet, hail, sand storms, grasshopper infestations…ANYTHING just to get a chance to see our boys in person!!! 🙂

  11. Grasshopper infestation!! You really are in love! I understand completely! Since it’s going to be one of the best days of your lives, you should call it something other than Black Friday. Like Fabulous Friday. Anyway, I’m sure you two will have a great time. Stay away from trouble and Grasshoppers!
    Isn’t Mary B wonderful? I was privileged to spend a little time with her in Detroit. What a Lady!

    1. Aww, Marie, You are too kind, but thanks, anyway. The time in Detroit was so much fun, remember Loretta’s chicken dish? I like Fabulous Friday…that’s the new name. The only grasshoppers we will encounter might be in the bar–do they still make those anymore? It’s been a long time. And as to the compliment–right back at ‘ya!!

  12. Ok, I have to tell. You got the Mall of America planning meeting between the Mary’s. Chris even caught on to Jeanine! The sweet pictures with the concert dates are from Marti. Thanks Marti, that is so cool. Makes a nice desktop background! “Joy”, well, she’s just a happy and extremely lucky girl!

  13. OMG…go to FB Mundial and watch Gianluca sing ALL OF ME !!! I pray he does this on the next CD…or in concert. It is wonderful. That guy can sing Sinatra like no one else!! And he is simply a doll!

  14. Oh yes, FABULOUS FRIDAY is perfect! The JOY photos of Ignazio with that beautiful girl is perfectly named. Who ever took that photo caught the moment at just the right time…pure joy and bliss in both of their faces. How wonderful!

  15. Harriett and Islo, welcome! It’s always great to hear from new visitors.

    Aren’t we fortunate to have this beautiful place to share our love of IL VOLO?

    Buona nottte,
