There are lots of things about Il Volo that we love and admire: their talent, their character, their good looks, and so on. But there is much more to these guys. Their comments show that they are intelligent, serious, compassionate young men.
IN THEIR WORDS: HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT THEIR FANS
Piero: The most important thing to us…we just care about the audience. It’s them who make us succeed. If we travel the world as Il Volo, it’s truly thanks to them.
Ignazio: You, the Ilvolovers, say always that we change your world…the truth is that you changed ours.
Gianluca: I can’t wait to sing on many new stages, meet who follows us over seas and in Europe, and live in that atmosphere, intense and funny that is only on tour.
HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT THEMSELVES
Piero: It seems like just yesterday when we were three children, maybe a little overwhelmed, that slowly began to get used to the stage, to the public in front, to the flash of photographers, moving away from home and the full days of commitments…but time passes. And even though the years have passed and our appearance is no longer that of children, in my eyes, there is always the same emotion.
Gianluca: Sometimes I can’t even acknowledge that I’ve become a world-famous singer. Sometimes it doesn’t seem real to me, because I still keep inside…we keep…that naivety, that innocence and simplicity of children.
HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT THEIR HOMELAND
Piero: Only music can express the joy of coming home, singing in my land and pay tribute to this beautiful island. The eyes that I recognize are those of the people with whom I grew up. There are thank yous that are direct from the heart and even more, because nothing makes me feel as special as to know that I am home.
Gianluca: We’re leaving for a trip that will take us away for many months. I already know that I am going to miss you, every one and every thing…my family, my home, my friends, and the love it makes me feel in this wonderful land that is Italy. I’ll bring you all with me in a special place in my heart.
Piero: Every time a new stage, a new audience, and new emotions I cannot wait to find out. The secret? A smile, always, in my mind and heart…nothing more.
Gianluca: Music is my passion, and I would like to do this forever, for all my life. We have to work hard, but we are young. We have all the time in the world to study and learn and do more. We’re so happy to do anything we have to. Traveling, dreaming, singing…three single words enclosing the sense of my life. Travel has changed me. I was no longer the same person after I saw the moon on the other side of the world.
Dreaming is creativity, imagination, and only those who won’t stop doing that can touch the sky.
Ignazio: Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions be bigger and louder than your words. You never know what’s gonna happen in your life, so just live it.
Sometimes love is more powerful than anything.
Is it any wonder that we love and admire them? And how much we wish that we could actually know them in person, as part of our lives, but as some wise one once said, “You just have to accept the fact that some people can only be in your heart and in your dreams and not in your life.” Yes, they are surely in our hearts, and maybe in your dreams??
It’s a beautiful thing.
