I recently came across several quotes that jumped off the page at me, making me think of none other than our three guys and the charming, alluring country they come from.
See if you agree…
“Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go.” – Truman Capote, American writer.
“My favorite thing about Milan is that you see these guys, and it’s as if a spaceship came out of the most attractive planet invented and just dropped them off all across the city.” – Brad Goreski, Canadian stylist.
“Rome, the city of visible history.” – George Eliot, English writer.
“You may have the universe if I may have Italy.” – Giuseppe Verdi, Italian composer.
“In Italy, they add work and life on to food and wine.” – Robin Leach, English writer.
“And that is … how they are. So terribly physically all over one another. They pour themselves one over the other like so much melted butter over parsnips. They catch each other under the chin, with a tender caress of the hand, and they smile with sunny melting tenderness into each other’s face.” – D.H. Lawrence, English novelist.
The last one sums it up so perfectly. The young men of Il Volo show their love and affection for each other and all those around them so easily. They love having us complete strangers, give them hugs, kisses, and gifts! We as fans love being close to them as much as they love being close to us! Are we lucky or what?
