The plot, already involving for the subject, also plays another winning card: the friendly participation of IL VOLO, a fresh and young presence, like the two protagonists of the film, Giuseppe Maggio and Francesca Loy, all witnesses, each in his own role, of the prodigiousness of music, and in particular of belcanto.

It is a love story that takes place between St.Petersburg and Verona, two guys who meet and one of them is passionate about opera.
At minute 4.59 Francesca Loy answers questions about the Flight that I’m going to translate.
* Recall that also recite the three guys of IL VOLO, Ignazio Piero and Gianluca, winners of Sanremo in 2015. Tell us a little gossip, how was acting with them, what types are they?
F= So, I’ll tell you, they are first of all very nice guys, just handy, not at all arrogant, they do not even seem famous. You realize that when one evening I went out with Gianluca. We went to Piper (a local in Verona) and he was very quiet, that is, very simple people.
It was exciting, because still hearing them sing live, it is an indescribable emotion.
* Are they as strong as they feel on television?
F = Yes, absolutely yes, they are very nice, all three, especially with Ignazio. I laughed a lot, they are really sweet and very nice guys.
