Take a deep breath and wipe away those tears. The time has come for “Our Boys” to go home to their family and friends. Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca have given us the gift of themselves for more than a few months now. We have seen them live, seen some great videos and wonderful photos! We have all that to remember them by while they take a little time at home. We don’t know when they’ll be back here in America, but we’ll keep in touch the best ways we have. Remember Gianluca loves to keep in touch with his fans and Piero and Ignazio usually will send Tweets and the occassional Keek to let us get a glimpse of their lives. We respect their privacy, but we do like the little updates they share with us.
I thought you might like to see a little of where they call home!
Piero calls Naro a town in Sicily home. In his beloved Naro, Piero likes to hang out with his friends and his sister, Maria Grazia.
Ignazio goes home to Marsala, also in Sicily. He enjoys hanging out with his friends and driving his new car!
Gianluca calls the Hamlet of Montepegano, in the Abruzzo Region, home. When he’s home he enjoys going to the beach with friends and watching his brother, Ernesto play Soccer.
Twitters, Tweets and Keeks:
Gianluca: “A girl with intelligence is sexy” Last night: “Buenas night” See his Keek “Greetings from NY” On Mundial.
Piero: Shopping and smiling around #NYC with @barbaravitali”
Ignazio: “Sushi heart for everyone” with a picture, and today, ” Snowing!! Good morning New York, last day!!!” See his picture in the snow on All Things Il volo.
See Connie’s Il Volo story under “my Il volo Experience” .
Dates coming up in Italy: December 14th, concert at The Basillica of St Francis of Assissi in Assissi, Italy. December 18th in Scala at The Bascillica di San Lorenzo. It is unsure if we can see these concerts here in the USA, but i’m sure there will be videos available on UTube.
Of course we’re all sad today, but the sadness is somewhat tempered by their joy in going home!! Until you come back again, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, stay well, enjoy your Christmas and God speed for your flight to Italy!!
OOPS got to run, have to find Marie!! The last I heard she was seen at the airport running after a jet heading for Italy!!
