~ Spot Bologna ~

GRAZIE, to Daniela for sending this to us!

Our dear guys have just come back from Kiev.  Will they be resting?

Absolutely NOT.   Today Piero, Ignazio, and Gianluca starred in an advertisement in Bologna!


IL VOLO, the band consisting of two tenors and a baritone that is so successful  in Italy and in the world, landed under the Two Towers. An unexpected visit that has conquered Bologna.   Tourists and passing students stopped to photograph the three idols of young people: Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble.


Using  the Piazza Santo Stefano square and the alleys that dive into the jewel of the city, the three very beloved stars have created an advertisement, transforming a quiet Wednesday afternoon into an exciting occasion to meet the young VIPs. The spot is for Ferrero, as part of an event that the multinational will organize in Mexico over the next few months. In front of the curious eyes of the fans, the three of IL VOLO have shot some scenes where they walk around the square, under the porches, in front of the church and via De ‘Pepoli.

The baritone Gianluca Ginoble, and the tenors Piero Barone, and Ignazio Boschetto, did not escape from the embrace of the fans.   They lent themselves to selfies and autographs. Although Ignazio was born under the Two Towers, Sicily and Abruzzo are the lands where the young singers grew up. For a few years, however, for all three Bologna is a second home because their manager is Bolognese, Michele Torpedine.  Their roads crossed in 2009 at a talent show by Antonella Clerici, “I Leave You A Song.”  From there their show began in 2015, with the song “Grande Amore,” to triumph at the 65th Festival of Sanremo.

      1. Pirate, Piero is curing his image very much, I think it is very fascinating, I just want the beard just mentioned and not too long.

  2. Thank you, Daniela. Photos and video are wonderful. Don’t they all look like grown men now? So handsome!

    Jane, does the size of that street in the video remind you of anything?

    1. What a pleasure to hear about you Marie, thank you for your compliments, when I see photos or videos or interesting things I just think about sending to Flight Crew friends, I like to do this and it was your idea to get me in this task.
      Yes, these guys are more and more fascinating men every day.
      A hug.

  3. Fun pictures and story Daniela. Thank you!!

    Yes, Marie…reminds me of the narrow streets of Naro! 🙂

  4. And yes, Marie, our boys are looking like handsome grown men these days! Thank you, Daniela, for your wonderful photos and video. I love being able to keep up with our guys through this blog,. It seems like forever since we’ve seen them, sigh. ~ Allene

    1. Thank you Allen, you too are of the idea that these guys are getting more and more beautiful, a big trouble for us, we can not escape their charm, but maybe we do not want!

  5. I do not want to also escape pictures or articles or recognition from them to us. At least I like to think they recognize us the Flight crew & if that is wishful thinking then I am going to hang on to that. I can’t let go of the feeling & longing I have of seeing them & giving Ignazio the biggest hug I have ever given anyone & hopefully I don’t cry like a fool. So still keep wishing

    1. Loretta, I assure you last year when I saw the guys I told them I was part of Flight Crew and I brought your greetings, they remebered the whole crew.
      You are sweet with your great affection for the boys and I hope that you can hug Ignazio for a long time.

  6. I swear if I ever manage to come back to Italy I would like to look you up Daniela and just give you a big huge hug for your contribution to the Flight Crew
    I’ll save my best Pirate hug for Piero when I see him next (please dear God, let there be a next time!) Ignazio always seems either puzzled or just not interested by me so I will leave him to Loretta!

    1. Thanks Pirate, I look forward to you with open arms.
      Piero is getting better and better, he is preparing for your hug.

  7. Thank you Pirate I accept with open arms.
    Daniela I am so happy that our precious young men recognize us & I also thank you from the bottom of my heart for the hard work you give us by keeping us up to date with information & anyone else who contributes to information for us. I have always said this is the BEST site on the internet. If I have forgotten anyone else forgive me it wasn’t intentional. I want to mention again Kelly, Marie, Jana, Jane, Daniela. We are blessed keep up the good work.

    1. Loretta, you are so sweet to think of all of us. It is a labor of love for me and I would guess it’s that way for the others as well. These three young men fill our lives with love and joy and friendship with so many others who feel just like we do!

    2. Thanks also from me Loretta, as Jane said well, we all do this with love.
      As for the Flight Crew site, it’s definitely THE BEST and I’m proud to be part of it.
