The Price To Be Very Famous ~ by Daniela

A friend passed me this short newspaper article.

It seemed to me to be a nice and funny news that our dear Gianluca is protagonist.

Before summarizing the content I think you all know that Gianluca is friend of Ermal Meta.

Ermal is a good singer and composer, this year’s Sanremo ranked second.

Gianluca repeatedly said in the interviews that there will be songs from Ermal on their next CD.

And now we come to the article.

The article says that Gianluca was on the steps to attend the concert as any fan but was immediately noticed and surrounded by fans.

Smiling and helpful with everyone, Gianluca greeted everyone with extreme courtesy, but this bustle did not allow the organizers to start the concert.

The security guards  escorted Gianluca came in so that the concert could begin.

Poor Gianluca, this is the expensive price to be very famous, from the comments of so many fans Gianluca was really courteous and helpful.

This is the comment of a fan on the facebook page of Ercole Ginoble.

Good morning sir. Ercole, I would like to publicly commend my compliments to you and his lady for how  have grew up your sons. I had the honor and the pleasure of meeting them at the concert of Ermal Meta and I have been disarmed by so much simplicity, gaiety and availability from a person who in his short life has a megagalactic success, sang with the greatest and could be full title of the arias …  I have seen some singers who are not coming close and that they do not even remotely salute the fans … I think this attitude is not only fruit of the character but also and above all what you as parents have sent you !!! It could be my son seeing age, but if before I was a fan , now I love him more !!! Paola

  1. Daniela thanks again for this post. Gianluca’s kindness to his fans is so appreciated and it reflects on IL VOLO. All three young men are special in their own way.

  2. Since meeting & seeing how these 3 young men have treated & shown respect to their fans & interviewers I have been impressed by the wonderful parents they each have who have raised them with such love & shown them the proper way to treat people with respect. We can actually have a conversation with them & go to their concerts without hearing cursing & swearing in their comments. If I ever get to meet any of their parents I will be congradulating them on how successful their efforts have been. Its too bad other entertainers can’t take a lesson from the Il Volo boys.

  3. High praise for deserving families! I was recently complimented on the politeness of one of my grandsons, I said, “that’s the way he was reared”! I have met 2 of the Mothers and one Dad of ilVolo, nice, polite folks….the way they were reared! <3 <3 <3!

  4. And this article point to one of the reasons we love Il Volo so much not just as incredible singers, but the wonderful kind people they are and we know it is due the the wonderful upbringing by their families . I know how special all the families are and love them for it and thank them everyday in my own way for what amazing young men they have given to the world. Thank you Barone Family, Boschetto Family, and of course Ginoble Family.

  5. Ciao a tutti sono in Sicilia e non ho il traduttore. Sono contenta che il post vi sia piaciuto. Noi amiamo i ragazzi anche per questa loro semplicità. Un abbraccio a tutti voi.

    1. I translate for you Daniela’s message
      “hi everyone, I’m in Sicily right now and I don’t have the translator. I’m glad that you liked my post. We love this boys because of their simplicity too. A big hug for you all.”

  6. Thank you Daniela for this beautiful story and post. Is it any wonder why we love our Il Volo boys? They are a shining example of everything good, kind and decent. I agree with all the ladies posting this comes directly from their parents and upbringing. Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero’s parents are to be commended and praised for raising these three exceptional guys. With all the turmoil in the world today, we can look to them for a positive role model for young and old alike; for their acts of kindness, for their patience, for their dedication
    to their craft and to all their fans. I know that they always bring a smile to me whether I am listening to their music or following their day to day adventures on this amazing Il Volo site. If I ever have the opportunity to meet these caring parents, I will thank them for the beautiful gift of their sons.

  7. Yes, gian is so sweet and always the gentleman. I think they are careful in what they say at concerts since they know a lot of young children attend. But it is nice to know when you attend one of their concerts it will be clean and family friendly jokes!
