Il Volo Comes Home–in Sicily
It was a busy week for the guys as they did a promotional tour through Sicily. While I am, of course, counting down the days until they are on our side of the world again, I can’t help but be excited for them that they are able to promote themselves and spend some time doing what they love in the country they love most.
Once Gianluca had finally packed his stuff, chatted with all the fans until the wee hours of the night and then was so sleepy that he fell asleep on the way to the airport the next morning (gotta love it! 😀 ), he safely joined his Il Volo brothers, and things got off to a pretty quick start.
First up, the Insemie TV show hosted by Salvo La Rosa.
I, unfortunately, was at work when this was taking place, and many of our readers were watching live (I’m a little bitter; I’m not gonna lie.), so I’m very thankful for Humildemente Ilvolover taking the time to share this on YouTube.
All About Il Volo has written a nice summary of the event that you can
Also, you can enjoy a short interview provided by Il Volo that aired on the Antenna Sicilia channel
and was translated by All About Il Volo here. —> http://www.ilvolo.mus.br/2014/05/il-volo-on-tg-la-sicilia/
Next up, Taormina, where they held a couple of press conferences and announced a 2nd concert date to be held on July 21st, as July 20th has already sold out! The guys seemed to each be in love with the city, Piero and Gianluca both tweeting several pictures of the beautiful scenery.

Naturally, The Guys have some very pointed and direct things to say about finally being able to come home to their people and have their families see them in concert and about how they want to be perceived and thought of. They have definitely come of age, and I love seeing them speak out as the men they have become. Maybe I’m a sap, but I think you will too. Thanks, once again, to All About Il Volo for the article.
“Taormina Will Be Our Turning Point”
And there was a final stop in Palmero for a Radio Interview on Doc Time.
And that was their whirlwind Tour of Sicily. Congrats to them for finally–truly–going home.
Ignazio Celebrates a Birthday by Playing Soccer
On May 21, Ignazio was back in Marsala celebrating the Birthday of Nino Barraco as a guest in a soccer match. I, for one, love it when I get to see celebrities do things they love outside of what they are known for, so I have enjoyed the pictures of this handsome soccer player very much. Maybe between our guys and Rafa (who is also a soccer nut), I’ll get into it after all. 😉
Head over to All About Il Volo for the full photo gallery and to see links of articles talking about the match.
Have a great holiday weekend if you’re celebrating Memorial Day–for those of us in the US.
