The sales of Torpedine’s book go very well, he wanted to thank everyone with this message:
IT IS A GREAT SATISFACTION THAT IN A LITTLE TIME “RICOMINCIO DAI TRE” IS AMONG THE BOOKS MOST SOLD BY FELTRINELLI.
THANK YOU ALL.
Certainly it is a great satisfaction, considering also the beneficial purpose of selling the books.
Several newspapers have written reviews of the book and there have been many interviews.
This, which I translate, is taken from the article of Optimagazine, written by Red Ronnie and explains very well why this book was made.
“Why did Michele write this book? Perhaps because he was tired of having to reply to artists who told events that concerned him by distorting or inventing parts, perhaps to close the chapter of the past and “fly” again very high, but above all to tell that those who take care of people who climb on a stage he is also an artist to whom not only the money of the percentage he collects is enough, but he would also like gratification.”
With whom Michele has re-found gratitude and the desire to move on?
You have some doubts?
But of course with Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, in a word IL VOLO!
In an interview, Torpedine was asked if the guys at IL VOLO are grateful and he replied that not only the boys but also their parents, to the point that he had to ask to stop thanking him.
But here’s what he wrote about them when it all started.
“My new creature (creation), IL VOLO, is challenging, of course, but it’s too fascinating to be able to invent, try, throw themselves together in projects that seem impossible and instead all are realized: theaters and arenas sold-out in every corner of the world; fans of all ages, because with them concerts come, whole families. “
We know that all this is true, during the concerts of the boys it is possible to see from the children to the grandparents, generations mixed in enjoying their music.
Another very significant piece written by Torpedine, where he talks about the guys is this:
“They always follow me, even if they do not fully share the idea. They trust me. Finally someone has understood that it is not the gain that interests me, rather the satisfaction of showing that in music I can also make mistakes, but very little, very little.”
How true Torpedine is, you have not made a mistake in your judgment of the boys. Pearls rare, very rare, and you recognized them, even if they were crude.
Crew, what do you think of this? Michele had a nose?
But the boys grow up and the difficulties arrive and Torpedine writes about this:
“Yet the difficulties were not lacking even with them: they came, above all, when the world realized that he no longer had three prodigy children, but three mature artists aware of their potential. Suddenly, we almost had to start all over again. , with great perplexity of the media and professionals, and we were not afraid to roll up our sleeves.
We really have to thank Bruno Vespa, it was he who bet on IL VOLO on TV at a time when it was not so easy for us.”
But I have to tell you, crew, that the piece that has me a little shocked, was this, and I would like to read your opinion on this.
“Nicoletta Mantovani (wife of Pavarotti) was the first to comment very negatively about IL VOLO, my last creature (the last artists created Michele), aiming to destroy the opinion of these guys, instead of encouraging them at their beginnings.
Obviously it is impossible, not only risky, to compare them to Pavarotti. Who does this is crazy.
Today, however, she also recognizes that they are unique guys: they sing well, they have passion and they believe in it.
Recently, all the media have documented that she strongly desired them at the inauguration of the Museum of Modena dedicated to Luciano.”
What to say, they did not deserve this, they were just kids … but maybe she did not know them and when she finally got to do it years later, she changed her mind.
In fact we say that, “Those who know them can not help but love them.”
I think Michele really loves Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca and it is widely reciprocated by the boys.
I believe that the difficulties have not been few and will continue to be there, but the team is strong and the road, even if tortuous, can be leveled.
Surely talent, education and gratitude are not lacking in our guys.
What do you think?
