One of the many things that we love about our boys is the great camaraderie that they have for each other. It is amazing how these three who only became acquainted through the unexpected foresight of someone in the music business, have become, as they, themselves, say, like “brothers.”
Like brothers they kid around, tease each other, sometimes come to blows, embrace affectionately, share life experiences, and show, in so many ways, how much they care for one another.
Interesting that three such different personalities have been able to meld together in one such cohesive entity as IL VOLO…Gianluca, so painfully shy, Ignazio, so painfully (ha) outgoing, Piero, so “take charge.” Somehow they have all learned from each other and been able to maintain the beautiful solidarity of IL VOLO. Gianluca has overcome much of his intrinsic shyness due to exposure to and encouragement from his brothers. Gianluca and Piero have tried to tame Ignazio down to a tolerable level, (don’t go too far with that guys–we love his craziness) as seen in their interaction with him on stage.
In spite of the rigorous lifestyle, with its many challenges, not the least of which is living in such close proximity during the tours, they have seemed to have been able to maintain their strong bond of affection. We love to see them having fun together.
