 So CUTE!!! It says “Awaiting the signing of San Remo (that part doesn’t concern us) and “the godmother of a surprising musical trio”
Antonella certainly was their godmother! Some of the newer blog people might like to see this from the old days:

This is a really nice video of Ignazio singing “Somos Novios”. He’s on Skype with his girlfriend Alessandra while he sings. Watch him dance with her during the musical refrain. (Kudos ~ All Things Il Volo)

(I must add here that this is one of the most romantic things I have ever seen!  – Marie)

62 Interesting Facts About . . .Italy

#19  No other country in Europe has as many volcanoes as Italy. This is because the Italian peninsula stands on a fault line. Three major volcanoes (Etna, Stromboli, and Vesuvius) have erupted in the last hundred years.

#39 Soccer is Italy’s most popular sport, and the famous San Siro Stadium in Milan holds 85,000 people. Italy has won the World Cup four times (1934, 1938, 1982, and 2006), making the country’s team second only to Brazil’s in number of wins.

I mentioned that I was big fan of tennis and still I like tennis as a viewer.When I was younger I collected  tennis posters, I gave away some of them ( for example gave as gifts few posters of Novak to my former friend ), but I still have quite a nice collection ( Djokovič, Federer, Nadal, Wawrinka, Tsonga, David Ferrer, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Berdych, Sharapova, Venus Williams, Ivanovič, Henin,Azarenka…).  I mentioned in comment that I have book about Nole, also about Roger, and I got as gift from friend autograph from Djokovič, so that as evidence that I am not a liar I send photos of books, 2 posters and autograph. 🙂

Common Italian Words and Phrases

Italian is known for being one of the most beautiful languages there is. It is the language of Dante and Da Vinci, and the direct descendent of Latin. When learning Italian, however, it might help to start with the basics.
When you meet people you will have to communicate with them, introduce yourself, and know how to ask and answer some basic questions. You may not be fluent yet, and you may not be quoting renaissance poetry, but at least you can communicate and find your way around, which will open up many doors for you when you’re traveling around Italy.

  1. Thanks to all who contributed to this! And, Marie , I totally agree with you about the the solo by Mr. Dimples! My heart feels like a big puddle of milk chocolate! I can only imagine (and I have a good imagination) how Ale felt! How can we not love this guy!!??

  2. What a fun post. I loved the few moments when Ignazio danced with Alessandra. What a romantic guy! The 62 facts on Italy was wonderful! Thanks!!

  3. Thank you girls for all the information just posted & also for Ignazio’s heartfelt song to Alessandro. He is definitely a romantic & she is a very lucky girl to have attracted the handsomest man who is our heartthrob. How many times have I said I am going to learn Italian now I can take another stab at it again. I would like to know where in Toronto is the BEST Italian restaurant. So far haven’t found out yet. After this move I am going to realy save to go to Italy & I will find the best restaurant there.

      1. Thank you Marie I’m sure everyone will want to know the best restaurants. You can chose the best foods for us to eat after you sample them & I’m sure Nina’s pizza’s will be on the list.

    1. Thank you to all for this wonderful post. I am trying so hard to learn this beautiful language and these words and translations were so helpful. I have to say that Alessandra is one lucky girl to win the heart of our precious Ignazio. I can’t even imagine what it feels like to have these beautiful words of love sung to you and for you by our Ignazio. Oh if only……..

  4. Thank you for all the interesting facts about Italy and also the many helpful words and phrases. And while I have picked up some words and phrases, it is nice to learn more. The video of Ignazio was lovely! I remember seeing a really beautiful video of Gianluca singing “lo Che Amo Solo Te” at the concert to his girlfriend Martina. I believe it was in Abruzzi. He came over near the end of the song singing it to her and then hugging her. I thought it was one of the most romantic things I have ever seen, especially for one so young! It is a beautiful song and I hope he will sing it more in concerts or on a CD.

  5. There was a 6.2 Earthquake in Italy at 3.30am Wednesday. Six people have been found dead in the city of Norcia in the province of Perugia, which is north east of Rome. They expect to find more people in the rubble of the building’s. The guy’s probably don’t know about it yet, as they would be sleeping.
    My heart and prayers go out to the people of Italy.

  6. So sorry for Italy. I hope the boys families are ok. They must be very anxious to return home. Ercole was tweeting during the aftershocks so I think the boys knew what was happening.
    On a happier note, yes Alessandra is a very lucky woman and Igna a lucky man to have found each other. We wish them all the best life has to offer.❤️
