The music his passion, has accompanied since his childhood truly handsome, talented baritone, Gianluca of Il Volo. He has always had the chance, through his father Ercole, attentive interest of good artists, to listen to great Italian songwriters such as Fabrizio de Andrè, and Francesco De Gregori. Check out his performance with our three loved ones at 2015:Una Avventura Straordinaria Concert, live at the Arena of Verona.
His grandfather, Ernesto, was a huge Claudio Villa supporter. That says a lot about Gianluca and his stunning commitment to music. He is well aware of the importance of giving a fresh eternal life to any kind of music, which willing or not, it was created to last forever.
One of his idols is, as far as the more classical musical human heritage we are experiencing, Andrea Bocelli. Watch Il Volo perform Granada, at the Zanetti and Friends, last year in Milan.
Gianluca’s love for music, together with that of Ignazio and Piero, brought a group of great producers to put these guys together as Il Volo. That is also the reason why these young men with such voices are worldwide extremely appreciated for their, indeed, pure talent.
For me and my friends, the Grande Amore tour, back in summer 2015, was a chance to really get to understand what this great baritone from Montepagano and his mates were about, artistically and personally. To be honest, my support for them was born before the Sanremo contest, but it grew stronger as I met great fans like me. Many criticized Il Volo after their victory. I didn’t care and I still don’t mind. They are talking nonsense. I won’t say to other people they should ever become a Ilvolover. My message is: don’t go telling lies you heard or read about them, as these guys are true and honest. Il Volo music makes my days. Listening to them is something huge, Italia sets me free. No other artists have given me such emotions before. My friends and I had several chances to meet the three of them. We have traveled to be at the GIGS. Every time this all happened, they were all so precious. The best times we had with them have no pics.
Some things cannot be fully translated into words, but I keep the most like they were tattooed on my heart.
I cannot really explain how exciting it was to have them live in Torino for the first time in a gig back in January 2016. How sweet and caring they were. Torino was also the city they started with their Italian tour, Notte Magica. It was an unbelievable night. Gianluca was so perfect that night. Il Volo sang their hearts out completely. I followed them on their European tour last year and I’m still on the road.
Gianluca is an extremely sensitive guy. He’s shy. When he sings he gives you the feeling how much devoted he is to music. He caresses every word, he bows to the seven notes. As a baritone, he has a beautiful deep, warm voice. His eyes speak themselves, so full of joy and the listeners cannot avoid being amazed by his talent. It just overflows.
Gianluca is stunning when performing En Aranjuez ( con tu amor). And what about singing his other idol, Elvis Presley, Can’t Help Falling in Love? This love hymn makes me fall so, just like he shows every time he’s about to give it to the audience. I get perfectly speechless and breathless. Despite Il Volo fame throughout the planet, Gianluca is still so humble, as the kid born in that romantic small village in Abruzzo. The one that is always so anxious and proud to come back home after days of promotion and tours. He cannot wait to spend some time with his family and trusted friends. He is truly fantastic, a prince.
Gianluca has never forgotten about his land and whenever he can, he tells how he adores Italia. I’m totally proud of him, because when it comes to approach him, he’s always so dedicated, thankful and madly special towards the fans, the people he believes care for Il Volo in their soul. He understands who does believe in them, in the person and in the artist. I want to thank Gianluca for being unique in all his ways. Serena.
