Some of us have known IL VOLO for a long time, but many others (like me) have started to follow them after Sanremo.
So, for many, Sanremo was a beginning, but those beautiful days of February 2015, how exactly did they take place?
Sanremo started on February 10th, but IL VOLO entered the scene from the second evening, on February 11th, Gianluca’s birthday.
Perhaps not everyone knows that in those days SORRISI E CANZONI, an Italian journal of music and gossip, entrusted to Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, a video-diary, that is a daily appointment, where they had to make a video and tell their emotions.
I found on Vimeo, all the videos, with the translations, so you can read what our kids said in those days.
3 February, start of the video diary
9 February, day of the general rehearsals of the show
The guys on the red carpet at Sanremo.
10 February, Sanremo begins
11 February, IL VOLO enters the competition
And here’s the fantastic first night, the first time that GRANDE AMORE is heard by an audience, by the public of Sanremo!!
The reaction of the public is simply fantastic, the guys very excited, Gianluca with tears in his eyes ….. a success!
12 February, the boys are excited about their first performance. It’s the evening of the covers.
Second evening, IL VOLO sings ANCORA.
February 13 third night, the boys will still sing GRANDE AMORE and there will be the first eliminations.
What about, again fantastic reaction of the public that call their name aloud. The guys are very excited with Carlo Conti (the presenter) who keeps reminding them that they are competing.
February 14th, last day of the video-diary and last evening of Sanremo.
Great last evening, each singer receives a video message from a supporter and for IL VOLO there is Placido Domingo.
And here we are at the final moment, the ranking has been said, the first three positions are missing, Carlo Conti calls on the stage all three singers.
The guys, immediately after the victory, the kisses and hugs and the pose for the cover of SORRISI E CANZONI for the victory of Sanremo.
What an emotion!!!!!
I do not know if all of you had seen all this, I myself was not looking at Sanremo, I turned channel only at the time of victory, I saw the delivery of the trophy but I had not yet heard the beautiful GRANDE AMORE, and when I heard it, it was immediately great love !!!
I hope this reconstruction has thrilled you, as it has excited me, and you find that the video diary made by Piero Ignazio and Gianluca has shown them to us as they are really . . . three simple and nice guys, our three boys of IL VOLO .
