On Sunday, November 4 in Italy, we remember the end of the First World War and it is also the feast of the armed forces.
To commemorate this festivity, an event was scheduled in the beautiful Piazza Unità d’Italia in Trieste, and was attended by all the representatives of the armed forces parading in front of our President Sergio Mattarella.
During these events, the Italian national anthem is sung.
Who could do this better than our talented PIERO, GIANLUCA and IGNAZIO?
Here they are in their impeccable execution.
What an honor, to sing the national anthem on these occasions.
Chills, and emotion.
The guys were very good, very elegant and very moved.
The event was broadcast live on RAI 2, and the thing that I really appreciated is how the boys were presented by the reporter, and now I bring you back.
The Frecce Tricolori pass (planes that carry the colors of the Italian flag), the voice of the reporter (off-screen) says these words:
“The Frecce Tricolori bring the colors of Italy to the world.
To bring the colors, the language, the traditions of Italy to the world are also the three boys who will sing before the President of the Republic, are the guys of IL VOLO, two tenors and a baritone. Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca will sing the national anthem.
Truly represent the GRACE, the EDUCATION, the SYMPATHY, the SKILL.
IL VOLO, the voice of Italy for good, of Italy that likes it.”
What a great satisfaction to hear these beautiful and very right words.
How nice to see our guys in photography with our President.
It was all so engaging and fast, but for those few minutes I felt full of pride.
Giorgi is a radiant councilor who tells Trieste about the meeting with the trio of IL VOLO, which took place in the backstage of Piazza Unità during the celebrations of November 4, in the presence of the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella.
“They are exceptional artists, young singers who bear the name of Italy around the world – reports Giorgi. We had the pleasure of having them back in Piazza Unità after the final stage of the Festival Show of two months ago. Too bad because they could sing a little bit more for the public in the square. It was nice to meet them in the Prefecture and make a selfie with them.”
This is instead the tweet of Gianluca, which I translate.
“It was a great honor to be able to interpret the Mameli Anthem in Piazza Unità d’Italia in Trieste, on this particularly important day for our country and the Armed Forces. We thank the President of the Republic and the Minister of Defense.”
The boys had already sung the national anthem in two other events, and exactly:
2015 GRAND PRIX MONZA F1
2014 CHRISTMAS CONCERT IN THE SENATE
But Gianluca had already sung the anthem alone in 2009 during the event
GAMES OF THE MEDITERRANEAN.
And now some good shots.
There is nothing to add, the photos and videos speak for themselves as usual …… and as usual, so much pride !!
