Personally Speaking~What you see is what you get~

Let’s imagine you are the ONE person in this world who has NOT seen or heard of IL VOLO.  I know, a terrible thought!  First impression just LOOKING at their photo (not listening to the voices yet) would be…my, my, what HANDSOME young men we have here!  

Then you remember you heard they can SING, so you listen to a song and are ASTONISHED at the caliber of their voices. 

Then  you figure you will have to LISTEN to some of their interviews to get an idea of who they are and what they are all about.  

By now you are HOOKED and are thinking, #1…where have I been…living in a hole? and #2...I’ve just GOT to see and hear more from these three!

You then start looking at the gargantuan amount of photos of them on line and begin to realize they are a true phenomenon in every sense of the word.

TALENTED beyond the moon, HUMBLE, GENUINE as the day is long, KIND HEARTED, LOVING as if they were family, RESPECTFUL of all people and situations, SWEET and above all TOTALLY COMFORTABLE WITH WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY STAND FOR. 

You see they live their young lives by FAITH, VALUES AND MORALS of the highest standards.  You realize they are the most AUTHENTIC young adults you have ever known.  13178586_806567862806470_1164596968835535639_n

Placing flowers in the Basilica in Loreto.


You realize where they came from, where they are today and where they will be tomorrow…with these three…WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET.  Always the real deal.



Where they came from…


Where they are today…


Where they will be tomorrow.

  1. Oh Jane! All I can say is that this is true and wonderful. You have such a knack for putting together, for us, what is in front of our faces but we couldn’t possibly say it this well ourselves.

    Thank you Jane and thank you Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio for being all of the above.

    We love you Guys today, as does all of England!

  2. It’s so nice to know there is still some real and genuine things in this world! 🙂

  3. Thank you, Jane!!! A beautiful post!!! This is all so true! I am so thankful that Gianluca, Ignazio, & Piero are now a precious part of my life!!!

  4. Jane, As always a spot on description of our boys. I am hanging on long enough to see them again. Joanie G

  5. I wish them everything good in this world. The same for their families too.

  6. A nicely written post Jane and you have so accurately described the voices, the character and the hearts of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca. I am so grateful I saw them on their first PBS special “Il Volo Takes Flight from the Detroit Opera House”. I was totally amazed at these three boys with their beautiful voices and wonderful personalities! They have brought so much joy to so many and continue to do so.

  7. A wonderful, wonderful article, Jane. You very accurately described just why we love Piero, Ignazio, and Gianlca so very much. They have wrapped themselves around our hearts.

      1. This type of conversation is not serious conceived,the point is to show the humorous side of the personality and interview should be a little bit different, unusual with personal questions. :- ) I think that is the nature of that website. So boys showed their funny character and sense of humour.

      2. Lydka, I am so glad they did this sort of interview. It is unusual but I think of how boring most interviews must be for them…endless! No, it is very good that they got to have this type of conversation. I sincerely appreciate you posting it for us!

  8. Jane, Just as everyone else has said, you certainly have captured our deep affection for these fine, dear young men….thank you for expressing the love we feel, so eloquently. They have captured our hearts and shared so much of themselves with us, making us all feel special. Hugs to you !!!! ♥
