Well, today was finally the day! Piero was named “Ambassador of Naro in the World”, truly an honor and a credit to his character and to his work with Il Volo. The ceremony was held at Chiesa di San Francesco in Naro, and Il Volo as a group was recognized as well.
There is so much that could be said, but in true Ilvolovers’ fashion, it has been covered more eloquently than I need to try to repeat. All of the groups have been hard at work all day, basically, bringing out all the pictures and news that can be found. Thank you so much, because a lot of my work was made easier by all of you!
Shutting up now, 😉
