Let’s face it, when you do a feature called “In Case You Missed it” and there is no news to miss, well, a girl has to make a living somehow. I’m starting this new feature called “Did You Know?” It was inspired by a Flight Crew member, Ann, when she sent us a few “Did you Know?” tidbits. That inspired me to look all over for others and hopefully give you some surprising facts, not always about Il Volo, but also things somehow connected to them. Now, you may already know some of these, that’s ok, maybe you can give us a “Did you know?” of your own. Feel free!!!
DID YOU KNOW??
There are a lot of theories that your birth order in the family may determine how you do in life, including your attitudes and behaviors. “Our Guys” are each a different birth order. Gianluca is the oldest in his family, Piero is a middle child and Ignazio is the youngest in his. Could this be the reason that Gianluca is serious and a perfectionist, that Piero, being a middle child and prehaps needing attention, dresses a little outside the box sometimes? Ignazio being the youngest being so funny and getting away with his antics? (Don’t write me, I’m not criticizing, just making some observations)
This is from our friend Ann: Dean Martin only spoke Italian up till he entered school? He was often made fun of for his poor English which eventually caused him to drop out of school in the 10th grade, along with the fact that he thought he was smarter than his teachers?
Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean?
Naro, Piero’s home, was founded in the middle ages?
Montepagano, Gianluca’s home, has a population of only 774?
Marsala, Ignazio’s home, dates back to 397 BC, when survivors of an invasion built a town where present day Marsala stands?
Elvis Presley sang in public for the first time when he was 10 years old, standing on a box to reach the microphone, at the Mississippi/Alabama Fair?
This too from Ann :
