Caruso Award 2015
Il Volo has been nominated for the 2015 Caruso Award by Raffaele Lauro, a politician in the Italian Senate (Raffaele Lauro Wikipedia Page).
According to Commune di Sorrento (Commune di Sorrento Article),”the Caruso Award is a recognition given to a personality of the artistic world of Italian culture that has particularly helped to spread the art and Italian culture in the world. A prize, Caruso, which in previous years has gone to giants of the art scene, as Andrea Bocelli, Lucio Dalla, Claudio Mattone, Massimo Ranieri and Carlo Fracci.”
Congratulations, Piero, Gianluca, and Ignazio! We’ll be waiting to hear the official word–but of course we always knew that you belonged in the company of these artists. 😉
Count Down to China
According to Piero, the time for vacation is now over, and it looks like they are getting ready to hit the road running. Il Volo is heading the China before they go to the San Remo Festival. They will be guests in a Chinese national music festival on January 26 which will be televised live on Chinese National TV.

New Album News
The Guys are still recording–a process that obviously takes waaaayyyy more time than I ever thought. But it seems like the release date for the long awaited album will be sometime after San Remo, giving me hope that my hunch was correct: that the song they will be singing at San Remo will be on the album. It is talked about a bit in the above article as does Ignazio in an interview that was released recently. Stay tuned for a transcript of his interview.
