July 1, 2016 ……… I can not believe it’s already been two years since that fantastic night, where in the warm sunset of Florence, you could feel in the air the magic that these three young boys were giving, at the public present.
It was wonderful and I was there.
It was my second concert and I was very excited, it was also the first time I used my daughter’s camera, I made videos that re-post to you, sorry for the various tremors and my voice in the background.
The magic was, that no one knew what to expect, we all know that the boys have incredible voices, but when they started with the Nessun Dorma, I think all those present held their breath to the end.
“O my God, it’s very difficult”, I thought, and even the boys were very emotional. There was a palpable tension in the air.
At the final note, we could not believe our ears, we all got up in a very long applause and a few teardrops wet our eyes. They were very good, we were all very proud of them, and they were tighten their hands, hugging each other, moved to be successful.
The various songs went by fast and the evening was beautiful. The muggy heat of the afternoon had given way to a nice evening temperature and Piazza Santa Croce was truly magnificent and the public really very much involved.
Between one song and another there were presentations made by the boys themselves, repeated twice, one in Italian and one in English and this was funny because Piero said: “Rewind everything and repeat because the grandmother in the front row has not heard well.”
There were also strange moments, because it was full summer and it was hot and yet, because the CD would come out at Christmas, they also sang a Christmas song, which was not added on the CD.
And Gianluca occasionally said, “Congratulations, Merry Christmas!”
The boys were really elegant, and the stage was huge, with a large chandelier that came down from the roof and emanated lights of manycolors.
People reacted with enthusiastic applauses for their great affection, but also because they recognized the skill of the boys of IL VOLO.
But why in the title of today I wrote “Everything happened for a truly magical night”? Because of the videos I had taken that night…. once I returned home, I wanted to share them with someone.
It was about a year that I was following the IL VOLO FLIGHT CREW website, but I had NEVER commented, I read the various comments that I liked so much.
In fact, at that moment, I took courage and made a comment, attaching one of the videos.
Immediately Marie contacted me and told me to write my impressions on the concert and to attach all my videos that today, I’m re-posting.
I received so many very beautiful and enthusiastic comments of the videos, even if they were shaky and with background voices.
I immediately felt accepted by the group, indeed part of the group.
After three months I was able to meet Marie and Jane personally, what a wonderful meeting.
A few days before going to Florence I read that even Jana would be there to see NOTTE MAGICA, but I still did not make direct contact with Jana so we could meet and get to know each other personally. There will certainly be a next time.
Since then, every day I check the page of our beautiful website several times, and I always feel very close to all of you, even if you are on the other side of the world.
By now I have learned to know most of you. I have so many fond friends, I’m lucky.
The architects of all this are three boys of gold, our dear Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio.
Their wonderful voices console us and their family affairs, into which to our great joy, they allow us to peek, make us proud and also very united, as if we were all part of a large family.
This beautiful magic was also repeated in Verona, where I got to know other members of our crew, such as Mary and Mark Minton, Sue and Graham Hemshall, Jeannette Giglio, Susan Tafanelli, to whom I send a big hug.
Within a few days I will go to the concert of Marostica, and I am sure, it will be a beautiful concert.
I will try to get as close as possible to our boys, to whom I will certainly bring the affection of the whole crew.
I hope to be able to make good videos that I will certainly send you with a detail of the whole concert.
This is the whole story, for now, of how I started writing for Flight Crew, all because of a Magic Night.
Here is the photo of our arrival in the beautiful Florence to attend the concert, my husband and I.
Did you see that beautiful shirt I was wearing ??? I took the first shirt on the fly !!
I send a hug to the whole crew, and I hope I have not bored you too much.
