Leafing through here and there, I found these beautiful thoughts of a girl who met Gianluca on the beach of Roseto. Her name is Valeria, another Valeria, Valeria Tirelli and her favorite is Gianluca.
With his warm, velvety voice, he caresses the soul’s cords.
With his sweetness, with his kindness, with his generosity in wanting to give you a smile, a word, a hug, he steals your heart.
I’m really happy to have had the opportunity to meet Gianluca Ginoble.
Because I did not meet the famous singer, but he, Gianluca, the “normal” guy, the one who did not change (and I hope it never happens) from the huge, well deserved success achieved along with the other guys from Il Volo.
Together, they enchant audiences around the world with those wonderful voices. Meeting Gianluca face to face, he has enchanted me.
Impossible not to be touched by his way of being, so humble, so normal, or by his sweetness, which you perceive in every gesture, in every look, in every smile.
Gianluca is the furthest you can be from how, a bit all of us, we imagine are the famous people.
If, as happened to me, you have the good fortune to meet him outside of the official occasions, you feel on your skin of having in front of you, a very special boy. He is kind and helpful, curious and attentive to anyone approaching him to say hello, for a photo or an autograph.
Even if he is in a hurry, he does not deny a few minutes of his time to anyone, ever, going (and it is something that I would like to underline, having lived it in person) far beyond what would be “normally” due to the fans.
So I thank him for his time, for the photo, for the autograph, for those few minutes in which he spoke with us, treating us in a very exquisite way and giving us a precious moment to put in the album of memories.
I hope I’m lucky enough to meet him again.
I am convinced of one thing: only true great artists, and only those who have the merit of being beautiful souls, like Gianluca, are able to enter people’s hearts in this way.
And once they enter, they stay there forever.
