Piedmont, Italy!

For all of the Americans out there, here and abroad, we wish you a safe and happy 4th of July!

Two years ago today, Lorna and I,  with many others, celebrated the 4th at the Verona concert!  What fabulous fireworks it was!  🙂  Seems like forever ago now!


I was perusing through my email and happened upon the little Italian digital news paper of L’italo – Americano.  It is a great little newspaper with a wealth of interesting Italian tidbits.  I clicked on a link and it took me to their Facebook page.  As I was scrolling along, I happened upon this posting.  It nearly took my breath away with its beauty and music.  I nice little repast…. it takes you from sunrise, to sunset!


From Wikipedia:  Piedmont (/ˈpdmɒnt/ PEED-mont; Italian: Piemonte, pronounced [pjeˈmonte]; Piedmontese, Occitan and Arpitan: Piemont; French: Piémont) is a region in northwest Italy, one of the 20 regions of the country.[3] It borders the Liguria region to the south, the Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna regions to the east and the Aosta Valley region to the northwest; it also borders France to the west and Switzerland to the northeast. It has an area of 25,402 square kilometres (9,808 sq mi) and a population of 4 377 941 as of 30 November 2017. The capital of Piedmont is Turin.

  1. Thanks Jana, I see that you like all of Italy, from the north, (Piedmont) to the south (Sicily) and I’m very happy of this.

    GOOD 4th JULY to the whole crew.

    This video I found long ago, I think it’s appropriate today.

  2. Thank you Daniela, for the beautiful tribute of our National anthem by IlVolo. When they sang this in the U S. before a ballgame it was very special!

    1. Jane and Daniela, our guys sing the National Anthem better than anyone else I have heard before, and I’m not just saying that because it’s them.
      How many times have you heard an American singer forget the words, but not our guys! 🇺🇸🇬🇧🇮🇹

  3. Thanks Jana for those amazing pictures of Italy beautiful country I so want to go there.
    Good fourth of July to everyone hope weather is perfect for you & I still say when Il Volo sings a song it turns to gold. No other singers can compeat. They are truly our treasures who make us feel as if they are going to improve the world. With angelic voices like theirs they will succeed.

  4. Hi Jana can you please tell me what the name of the new CD or video of Il Volo’s & also the name of the new CD. I haven’t been able to get out so I want my son to pick them up for if we can get it in Brantford. I phoned Brantford CD’s here to no evail. Thanks

    1. Loretta, no one knows the name of it as it is NOT out yet. And no one knows what’s holding it up. We have to be patient–which is very hard!!

  5. I use the search engine Bing but I think it would also be on Google.
    I type in Il Volo Star Spangled Banner New York.
    They went to the fire station in New York on a trip sometime after 9-11 and
    sang the song. The fire chief is Italian also. Ignazio dressed up in a
    firemans suit. I was very touched with their performance.

  6. Thank you for the videos. I came from West Virginia , and there was a coal camp named Piedmont in Mercer county. In the mountains to the south. I think there were a number of families in the area from Italy.

  7. Thanks, Jana for the beautiful video! How I would love to see it in person! This was almost as good! ❤ ❤ ❤
