Naples…the city Gianluca so lovingly always refers to before they sing O Sole Mio! Beautiful Napoli….. This Naples concert was the last official concert of the Notte Magica tour for Italy. Next, they brave new cities and countries, like Bulgaria, Ukraine, and Poland! They will be back in Italy again in July to make special appearances at various summer festivals and events. It is never a dull moment for the guys…
As always, credit to all owners of pictures and videos….
To start out, here is a little something that Daniela sent my way…. What, did someone mention My Way??? “And now…. the end is near….and so I face the final curtain….” No, just a temporary intermission for Italy! 🙂
Last night our boys sang under the stars of this incredible city: NAPLES.
Naples is an Italian city of 970 214 inhabitants, the capital of the Campania region, the center of one of the most densely populated metropolitan areas of the European Union. It rises almost at the center of the homonymous gulf, dominated by the Vesuvius volcano
The “theater” of the concert is: Arena Flegrea, the great outdoor theater in Naples, was designed in 1938 by the young architect Giulio De Luca.
Constructed in semicircle, in the example of Greek theaters and amphitheatres, white travertine is set and conceived with great clarity and monumentality: grandeur of spaces, width of curves, rhythms and proportions of volumes and surfaces. The exterior solution is very intonate both in the atmosphere and in the traditional pictorial taste of the region and the landscape frames the complex with great harmony. The best technical equipment for a perfect stage and acoustic performance, a grand 1000 square meter stage, 16 individual dressers and a total capacity of 400 people behind the scenes, make it the ideal venue for music and outdoor performances for artists and great recall tournaments. The Arena Flegrea and the Verona Arena are among the most beautiful in Europe. With a capacity of 6,000 seats, it is the second arena concerts in Italy and one of the largest modern arenas in Europe.
Thank you, Daniela! 🙂
First let’s take a look at the happy meet and greeters!
And a little of everything here, thanks to Pamela. Watch for Igna’s conducting debut and lesson!
