Back in September at the Venice Film Festival, there was a press conference for the presentation of the film, UN AMORE COSI’ GRANDE, where our boys will be present as actors. It will be a beautiful romantic film.
Here in Italy the film will be released in February on Valentine’s Day. It was said that a first vision will be released by December, and only in Verona.
I sent a message to Federica Andreoli, the producer of the movie, UnAmore così Grande.
I told her that ILVOLO’s fans of Flight Crew wanted to know if the film will be distributed to America as well.
Federica kindly answered me. These are her words.
“Hi Daniela, we are now finishing the film editing and then going to the musical part! The film will also be released in other countries beyond Italy and I also hope in America … a hug and good Sunday.“
The following is the Press Conference. I will translate from the 10.05 minute…what the producer of the film says about the participation of Il Volo.
“What can I say, I’m the one who wanted strongly the boys of IL VOLO.“
“The boys of IL VOLO, why? Because today are the most beloved,mostfollowed Italian guys, in Italy and in the world. They are the ambassadors of Italian music in the world, so it was the right choice to have them in this movie, a film that must bring young people to the lyrical world.
Today they are not here with us, they send greetings because in a few days they will leave for a South American tour, the 7th will be in Mexico with the first concert, a tour that will see them busy for a couple of months.
Negotiation with them was not easy because they are always around the world, so finding them, talking to them by phone, it was not easy. We put in 15 months and we did it. They read the subject and fell inlove with the screenplay. I have to say a special thanks goes to their manager, Michele Torpedine, because he helped me so much in this negotiation.
And then I chose them for another reason, because I’m a fan of theirs. I had a dream, to make an event, a movie with these three guys and Isucceeded. I can say that the first ciak, the first “take” of the boys of IL VOLO, is in my movie. As a producer and fan, I have double satisfaction.”
