  1. Igor my parrot is so upset he now has to go to confession. Actually I am very disappointed but I figure they would not do this unless they had a good reason.

  2. “The regret of Piero, Ignazio, anthemd Gianluca” says it all. They
    have hearts for the peoples of the world. I respect and love
    them for their care and wisdom at their young age. I don’t
    blame Igor the parrot for being upset. I think we are all
    concerned for the state of the world.

  3. It look’s like the guy’s were ready to go on stage, if that picture was from 10 hour’s ago.
    Pirate, I think igor will be a little late coming home.
    A flock of parrot’s just flew over my apartment in Hawaii, and I could swear one of them was singing Volare! Lol

  4. Ciao a tutti….che dire, siamo tutti rattristati e delusi per la cancellazione dell’impegno alla GMG. La giustificazione dell’impossibilità tecnica ci sembra alquanto banale, ci deve essere sicuramente un motivo ben più grave che non possono rivelare. Non si cancella un evento di questa portata, davanti al papa, e al quale loro stessi hanno detto sempre di tenerci tanto, per simili motivi. Onestamente penso che non sia solo una questione di sicurezza altrimenti che dire del papa e tutte le altre persone?
    Spero che i motivi siano molto importanti perchè sicuramente i ragazzi perderanno moltissimo in immagine, certo noi fans siamo qui per sostenerli anche nei momenti più difficili e gravi, ma altre persone, in primo luogo la stampa sopratutto italiana, non aspetta altro che un pretesto per denigrare il Volo.
    Una mia amica fans del Volo e in vacanza a Roseto degli Abruzzi, martedì 26 luglio è riuscita a trovare Gianluca in spiaggia e a fare una foto con lui, gli ha chiesto della GMG e lui le ha risposto che non vedevano l’ora di andare e che sarebbero partiti ieri. Tutto questo ci dice la verità sul loro impegno e che alla base le motivazioni della disdetta devono essere profonde.
    Purtoppo in Italia già circolano commenti che forse hanno rinunciato per partecipare ad una festa VIP (non posso assolutamente crederci), oppure che volevano un compenso più alto (altra cosa a cui non credo).
    Sono d’accordo con Lydka che la delusione dei fans polacchi è enorme e Gianluca Piero e Ignazio per primi ci debbano un chiarimento e se fosse un ordine del loro management alla quale devono per forza ubbidire, in questo caso si impongano o perderanno tantissimo rispetto.

    Hello everyone …. I must say, we are all saddened and disappointed by the cancellation commitment to GMG . The justification technical impossibility it seems quite obvious , there must surely be a much more serious reason can not reveal. Do not cancel an event of this magnitude , before the Pope , and to which they themselves have always said to keep us so much , for similar reasons .
    I honestly think that it is not just a security matter otherwise what about the Pope and all the other people ?
    I hope that the reasons are very important because the boys definitely lose a lot in image, of course we fans are here to support them even in the most difficult and serious, but other people, first printing especially Italian, do not expect more than a pretext for denigrate Il Volo.
    A friend of mine fans of Il Volo and holiday in Roseto degli Abruzzi, Tuesday, July 26 managed to find Gianluca at the beach and take a picture with him, she asked about the GMG and he said he could not wait to go and they would leave yesterday.
    All this tells us the truth about their commitment and motivation to the base of termination must be profound.
    Unfortunately in Italy already circulating comments that perhaps they waved to attend a VIP party (I can not quite believe it), or they wanted a higher fee (another thing I do not think).
    I agree with Lydka that the disappointment of Polish fans is huge and Gianluca Piero and Ignazio first we need a clarification and if it were an order of their management of which must necessarily obey, in this case you require or lose a lot of respect.

    • Daniela, your comment is good and I agree with you.
      This situation is unpleasant for all. I hope that it does not cause harm to their good image.I assume that managers of artists always have a strong voice in decisions.Boys have a lot of commitments, many activities, concerts, probably do not have time and energy to deal with some things and rely on the people in their team,whether this is good or not, only time will tell. Sometimes, it is difficult not to lose yourself in show business,be yourself no matter what the others say, and to enforce own decisions. I think maybe they need be more active in some important decisions about their career.They too much rely on the people in their team, maybe it is not good for them. The financial side may also be reason for not participating.It is possible that their management provides them with something “better” (better paid event) , who knows ? In show business everything revolves about money (I have no illusions) …I do not think we will know the real reason for non-participation. Some things always remain secret.

      • I must add that it is naive to think that artists are free to decide in some cases about their careers and participation or non-participation in certain events..sometimes when manager says something , artist has to do do it , be obedient and be quiet. I have read many stories about backstage of show business from the artist’s point of view.Personally I don’t want to criticise the boys, always wishing them the best and I respect ,as fan, their decisions and choices.I only write my opinion, I am always sincere, others may not agree with me, this is ok. 🙂 But I think that this cancellation should have been communicated in the better way and with longer advance.

      • Ciao Lidka, sono anch’io d’accordo con te, non credo che i ragazzi abbiano tanta autonomia di decisione ma questo era un evento troppo importante e spero che il loro management abbia valutato bene il contraccolpo sulla loro immagine. Inoltre era noto a tutti quanto Piero Ignazio e Gianluca ci tenessero a questo evento. Forse non sapremo mai la verità. L’anno scorso tutti si aspettavano una loro presenza all’ ultima puntata di “Ti lascio una canzone” (programma che li ha lanciati) ma loro non ci sono stati perchè mi sembra dovessero presenziare ad un altro evento. Un poco di delusione, ma un conto è mancare ad una finale televisiva locale (Italia), un conto è mancare ad un evento mondiale e al Papa.
        Qui in Italia si parla già di una loro presenza lunedì 01 agosto nello stadio di Napoli per un evento di calcio.

        Lydka Hello , am I agree with you , I do not think the guys have so much autonomy of decision but this was too important event and I hope that their management has failed to gauge the repercussions on their image . It was also known to all as Piero Ignazio and Gianluca we fell short at this event . We may never know the truth . Last year everyone expected their presence to the latest episode of ” leave you a song ” ( program that has launched them ) but they are not because they had to attend another event . A little disappointment, but one thing is lacking to a local TV finale ( Italy ) , is one thing to miss such a global event and the Pope.
        Here in Italy there is already talk of their presence Monday, August 1 at Naples stadium for a soccer event.

    • Daniela I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your comments coming from Italy. You can give us a better perspective of what the fans and critics think ihere.

    • Daniela, I know that Monday, August 1 at 20:15 the boys will perform with the orchestra San Carlo, at the San Paolo stadium in Naples on the occasion of the 90th birthday of SSC Napoli, I sent Kelly info, articles. 🙂 Who knows if boys will be there, because their presence there wasn’t officially confirmed, yet. WYD is prestigious and big event, this is why I wrote my last sentence in previous comment. Hope that their managers know what to do to maintain their good reputation ! Buona serata ! 🙂

  5. Lets give this situation some time. After the Youth event is over and the Pope is back in Italy maybe the management will give us the real reason. I feel they need to to calm down the criticism. This event was planned a long time ago and a song was written for the boys to sing so I feel there must be a very good reason to cancel.
    I feel sad and disappointed like many of you.

    • Grazie Gina, sono contenta che apprezzi i miei commenti, anche se sono solo il mio parere personale.
      Devi sapere che qui in Italia non è molto apprezzato, anzi direi per niente apprezzato il lavoro non del loro management ma di chi gestisce il loro sito e promuove ciò che fanno.
      Alle vere fans queste persone sembrano molto incompetenti, infatti spesso sbagliano date , pubblicano foto dicendo Messico e magari sono in Brasile ecc.ecc. Alternano nel sito ufficiale notizie tipo quella della mancata presenza alla GMG con foto di articoli pubblicitari del Volo. Inoltre questo staff il cui dirigente è di Brescia (accidenti mia città) ha pubblicato sul giornale locale più importante di Brescia, quanto era stato bravo a prendere la direzione del lato pubblicitario del Volo addirittura dicendo che se avevano vinto Sanremo era stato grazie a loro. Ridicolo. Noi fans non li sopportiamo e per far vedere la loro incompetenza tante pagine a loro dedicate con tanto amore da ragazze senza alcun tornaconto (ad esempio All About Il VOLO)
      hanno chiuso la pagina , ed il vero problema era che i ragazzi erano convinti che il lavoro venisse fatto bene e siccome erano impegnati nei concerti all’ estero (da voi) non si riusciva a dialogare con loro. Adesso però la situazione è migliorata, credo che tante amministratrici siano riuscite a dialogare con loro e le pagine stanno riaprendo ( Il Volo Abruzzo, All About il Volo).

      Thanks Gina, I’m glad you appreciate my comments, even if they are just my personal opinion.
      You have to know that here in Italy is not very appreciated, I would say not at all appreciated the work not of their management, but of those who manage their site and promote what they do.
      The true fans these people seem very incompetent, in fact often mistaken dates, publish photos and maybe saying Mexico are in Brazil etc.etc. Alternate in type news website that date the non-presence at GMG with pictures of IL VOLO advertising items. Moreover, this staff whose executive is to Brescia (my city accidents) published on the most important local newspaper in Brescia, what had been good at taking the direction of the advertising side of IL VOLO even saying that if they had won Sanremo was thanks to them. Ridiculous. We fans can not stand them, and to show their incompetence so many pages devoted to them with so much love by girls with no self-interest (such. As All About IL VOLO) have closed the page, and the real problem was that the boys were convinced that the work was done well, and as they were engaged in concerts abroad (by you) you could not talk to them.
      But now the situation has improved, I believe that many administrators have been able to talk to them and pages are reopening (IL VOLO Abruzzo, All About IL VOLO).

  6. It galls me to think that the fans in Italy would not be no critical of Il Volo & realize that they probably had no choice to cancel & that the reason wasn’t money but something far more important.

    • It is disappointing that Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca’s participation in this event was canceled. Let us all remember our special guys have always conducted themselves both in their professional and personal lives with the utmost professionalism and integrity. At this time we do not know the reason. There should be no judgment or criticism from anyone. We know our guys commitment to everything they do and say in their careers. We wish them safety always as they move forward with their decisions always keeping in mind that they have so far made very brave and wise decisions that have made us true Il Vololovers and lifelong fans.

      • Margaret , it is precisely because we know them that is strange to us this decision , it is not from them , we’re all a little disappointed , no one wants to criticize them ( the reasons will certainly valid ) all criticize the justification that was given precisely because who knows them knows He can not hold as truth . All we love them deeply and always will support them .

      • Daniela I hope my post wasn’t misunderstood. I know true IlVolovers would never criticize any action of our 3 special guys I was speaking of outside criticism. Thank you Daniela for replying to my post.

    • LORETTA , we real fans do not think that the reason is money or fatigue or difficulty techniques , know too well the guys , but maybe says Lydka the REAL reason we will never know .

  7. I have friends who live in Warsaw. They said the whole city is locked down. streets are closed etc. I have a feeling that it may be a security reason. I will e-mail my friend and find out if he knows anything. Joanie G

    • Town due to security will be unavailable for cars,therefore many residents of Krakow are leaving from the town, normal transport in the town is almost non-functional. So, with car is unable to get to the town,Poles are doing everything that all participants feel safe,this is normal and I think in this world all countries certainly would have done the same ! The same precautions will certainly also be at the Olympics in Rio.

      • Please do not misunderstand Daniela my post I know all our loyal IlVolovers would not criticize our guys I meant criticism from other sources I apologize for any misunderstanding of my words

      • Lydka fact , I’m sure of this .
        I have to say thank goodness that the Italian newspapers that never wasted too IL VOLO have not given much prominence to the news of the participation in World Youth Day , and now also have almost taken over the lack of participation IL VOLO

    • And what about other artists who had and have there their concerts ? For Pope will sing choir with 300 members… And for interest , Ave Maria, mater misericordiae, the unreleased song,was especially composed by Romano Musumarra for this event and for Piero, Ignazio, Gianluca. I have read that those who have already heard this song said that it suits perfectly to their voices and is a powerful song on listening , that will touch our souls in the deepest.

      • Thanks Lydka, now I reallly want to hear that new song as composed by Romano Musumara.. Hopefully they will record it in the future for us.

      • I have read that maybe it will be on new Cd Una notte magica….And I also was looking forward to this song. 🙂

    • Donna I have exactly the same opinion.It´s not money but justifiable concerns about safety of boys.
      Come also to Poland POPE + huge crowd of Christians in one place and this is also a great opportunity for their enemiens.

  8. Margaret does not worry about the fact you that your comments may have been misunderstood, I know of your sincere affection for the Flight I have no doubt, is one of the reasons why I wanted to be part of this group .
    Lydka , too ‘ I waited anxiously for the new Ave Maria written specifically for this event , we hope to be able to hear later .

  9. It is now 5:57 PM in Krakow and I am sure the boys are sad that they are not there to sing. I feel my frustration is because I knew their singing at the two events would have been special. Right now we all need to say a silent prayer for the Pope, the young people gathered there and for Il Volo.

    • I’m sure they are disappointed and it would have been wonderful for them to be with all the young people and Pope Francis. I hope they do record the new Ave Maria composed for this special event. God bless them all and keep them safe!
      Thank you Daniela for all the comments and information from Italy. It is nice to get another viewpoint and from Il Volo’s home, and thank you also Lydka for filling us in from your home. It is sad to hear how critical the press can be about Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca. I feel they are the best ambassadors for Italy, its lovely people and its bel canto.

      • Thanks Margaret Ladolcetta , also I think they are the best ambassadors of ‘ Italy but believe me , in Italy many journalists instead of supporting them do not expect anything other than criticize them .
