Hi Everyone,

It’s been a long and wonderful week for our “Guys”!!  Finally in their home country of Italy, they have been recognized for the stars that they are!! Fans came from far and wide to see their 2 concerts in Taormina. All their friends and family that were unable to see their concerts in other parts of the world, were finally able to see them perform live!  As we have seen here and other fan sites the videos and photos show the happiness of Il Volo during these spectacular concerts. How wonderful for Piero to be able to sing “Mamma” to his own mom. We have seen videos of Ignazio and Gianluca sing to their moms before, but not Piero. I also loved the video of Gianluca hugging his brother, Ernesto. After the concerts in Taormina they flew to Riga, Latavia where they were invited to sing at “The New Wave” music festival. Il Volo, all three of them,  flew to Rome where they traveled to Gianluca’s home in the Abruzzo region. That must have been an interesting 2 days for everyone. Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca were together at a party with some vey attractive young ladies. We also see a picture of Ignazio playing a video game with Erny, Gianluca’s brother. They all stayed because they were to attend a press conference in Pescara where they are appearing in concert in September. Ignazio tweeted early yesterday that they were back home.

Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio make us breathless at concerts and make our hearts race at Meet and Greets. They also are kind enough to share some of their free time with friends and families and we must always be respectful of that. I thought we’d look at some pictures of their free time.

  1. That photo of Piero giving Ignazio a kiss is hysterical! It made me laugh and laugh. Oh we are indeed lucky to have such a marvelous trio of handsome, talented, generous young men that share their lives with their fans. Viva IL VOLO!

  2. Although I could not be at their concerts in Taormina, I have felt a bit like I was. It has been wonderful to share this with them long-distance! As far as Piero singing to his mom, there is a video on You Tube! It is the most darling thing! His mother is so proud, and Piero is in his glory singing to her. Oh the smiles on his face!

    And FYI that picture of Piero kissing Ignazio is photo-shopped, I’m pretty sure. But it is still funny nonetheless! 🙂

    1. Carli is right, the pic is edited!! In the original picture Piero is kissing a girl who is eliminated in the edited version. I have the original pic if someone wants to see it…

    1. Thanks, Carli, I hadn’t found the whole video before and it is so great. I love the way she pats and rubs his leg and reaches up to touch his head. So precious. And Piero shows so much emotion in his face. What a guy!! I loved him before, but this is the frosting on the cake.

      1. Hi Mary
        It seemed to me that she was keeping in time with the music, like the boys she couldn’t keep still with the beat going on! It is a lovely video–it shows one of the things we love about the boys–their devotion to their families.

  3. Sweet! I’ve never seen him looking happier!

    Nice post Linda! So refreshing to see them relaxing and having some much deserved fun for a change. I forget how young they are until I see things like that. Good for our Boys! Thanks for that first paragraph! I can’t keep up with where they’ve been they are so busy! I can always count on you for that, Linda.

  4. Thanks, Linda, for bringing us up to date with what Our Guys have been doing in their free time. Just when I think I couldn’t love Piero any more, I see that video of him singing to his momma. Loved it! Thank you Carli.

  5. Thanks Linda for the video. I think every Mother would wish their son would show so much love. It was wonderful to see. Joan

  6. I just wanted to add that almost the entire concert is on Youtube now including Gianluca’s “Anema e Core” which has me swooning endlessly.
    Also–the other night a friend came over and I played many of the Taormina videos for her. She cried through almost all of them.. The emotional effect they have on all of us is incredible. I myself have never felt this way,ever before in my entire life, about any singers. Happy Sunday everyone !!!

  7. Thanks everyone for your kind words. I enjoy looking around for new updates on our “Guys” I’m like you, I like to to know everything they’re doing!! 🙂

  8. Thanks Linda for the great update on what our guys are doing, it is so great for them to share some of their personal times with us, it makes me feel just a little closer to them, \i hope someday to see them again, love them so much!!! thanks again Linda.

    1. You’re right Annie Nan, it does make us feel closer to them, I hope they never stop doing that. I think it shows what sweet and wonderful young men they are!

  9. What a great update! I am so thankful for your time and effort on each update! Thank you thank you thank you! Excited to see more!

  10. Thank you so much for this compilation! I still haven’t been able to watch all the videos form Taormina, but I LOVE that one of Piero and his mother! Now, I need some help. Captain Crider has started d leting me a d it ne ds to sto ! I wa t the crown! He p!

    1. Hi Isabel. Look up Maria Sergeeva’s videos of the Taormina concerts. She recorded songs from both nights of the concerts & the sound & picture quality is very good. Watch the “We Are Love” one from 7-21-14. Piero smiles & blows a kiss to someone at the start of the 1st chorus & it will melt your heart away.

      Maybe Marie will stop deleting you if you promise not to write poetry. She is the reigning queen in that department. But you & Carli express yourselves extremely well, with a lot of wit & whimsy. As did that young lady who wrote her concert experience a while ago, but wanted to remain anonymous. I really enjoy reading your posts.

      OK, Marie. Now you have to put on your poetry crown & come up with an anniversary ditty. I know it will be better than what I’ve been thinking. Because all I can come up with is “We love Il Vo-o-lo, oh yes we do-oo. There’s no one else we love as much as you.” You know, like we used to sing for the Beatles 50 years ago (OMG –I’m OLD!!!

    2. Isabel, NEVER GONNA HAPPEN! you little fibber, you!

      Lynn, I wrote a poem for the occasion. However, when we started this site we decided that “We Are Love” is our theme song. It’s the intro to our website video. Plus we “Share the Love”.

      Oh yes, I sang that song to the Beatles just a couple of years ago. We sang “we love you Beatles..then we love you John, then down the line. If you don’t know it, it’s a very hard song to sing (lol).

      1. FI BER? ?! !?!? ME?! !? ? New n te to se f: 1) Co pos an ive sary poe 2) ST AL C OWN! ! !!! !! !

      2. Marie, Really? Just a couple of years ago?! Please send me that magic mirror you are looking into. I wanna be younger, too!!!

  11. It is so nice to see the guys relaxed and at home, and I loved that Piero and Ignazio stayed with the Ginobles while in Abruzzo. Further proof of the family that all the families have become. Special thoughts to Mrs. Ginoble with four boys in the house. 😉

    1. i just wanted to add that Piero and Ignazio stayed in a hotel in Roseto degli Abruzzi (hotel Liberty), they didn’t stay at GG’s house although they spent lots of time together!

  12. Thank you for this wonderful post. Love seeing the guys enjoy every aspect of their lives and appreciate the fact they love social networking! 🙂
