With the approach to the start date of the Sanremo Festival, IL VOLO was interviewed by Radioitalia.
Here is the translation of the interview.
PRESENTER = I’m punctual today too. Today I have to present three great voices, three great artists: IL VOLO, hello guys.
P + I + G = Hello
PR = I have made the first compliment to you and you laugh so?
P = We laugh for that.
PR = Why, are not you great artists? You are!
G = Also, it is also nice to remind the audience that I was born on the same day, 11 February, that we last participated in the Sanremo competition.
PR = But not the same year dear…. but yes, in fact you were born the same day and in Sanremo we reciprocate the birthday wishes, but this year no, because Sanremo will already be finished, but I must say that for the Aquarius, will a good year and, closed parenthesis! Are you happy ? (she ask to Gianluca)
G = Very
I = And Libra?
PR = I do not know, I know the Aquarius because it is our sign and then …. then, I inform myself.
PR = So, welcome back to Sanremo, in the race, I have to say, because in Sanremo you were there last year, nice, it was a great participation.
You come back to Sanremo, because logically, you have a track in which you believe very well, come back to Sanremo, because in Sanremo, good or bad, you are born, and because you celebrate 10 years of career.
P = Exactly, we celebrate 10 years of our friendship that binds us, the passion that unites us, we could not choose a better stage the Ariston (the theater of Sanremo) which saw us born 10 years ago and we wanted to celebrate this goal together.
PR = Gianluca, do you want to talk about it, and tell us something about the song entitled MUSICA CHE RESTA?
G = To remember that Grande Amore has given us so many emotions, so it’s one more reason to come back, we are fond of this stage, but especially this song, we believe a lot, in this piece, because the important thing is to get to the people, win people’s hearts, this is the most important thing.
PR= You always come to the people, anyway.
Listen, Ignazio, can we imagine/anticipate a pop-lyric song?
I = I think an artist never wants to lose his personality, then surely it will be a big surprise, we would like to say anyway, that among the various authors and writers of this song, there is also Gianna Nannini, whom we value a lot, and we are really happy to have her on the team.
PR = Ok, very well, so great return to Sanremo. I’m thinking about 10 years, you are very young and have already played the most important stages in the world, you duet with the most famous international stars, you have made a journey that an artist, even in 50 years can do.
Sometimes you stop to think about this and you are afraid of having burned the stages, apart from that, your dear friend Michele Torpedine will invent one every minute, but do you think it all happened too quickly?
P = We met at the age of 15, our teenage period was different from that of our peers, but, as you said, Michele Torpedine invents one opportunity after another, so it’s never enough. When we are on a stage, we always think about the next one.
PR = But are you happy to come back to Sanremo? I feel you are a little like this ……. are you excited?
G = We are happy, a little tense, because anyway it is an experience ……
I = It is a stage that always creates a little anxiety.
PR = You are on another stage right now, but we’ll think about it in a few days.
G = Also here we had a beautiful concert in 2015.
PR = Of course.
I = And sure Radioitalia will invite us again this year.
G = Again, exactly.
PR = Absolutely yes.
PR = I know that then there is another beautiful international project, a right album, of unpublished songs and not ..
G = Yes, it will be a surprise, we cannot tell you more, it will be an international project, where there will be new songs.
I = We can only give you a clue.
PR = Go.
I = This year we celebrate 10 years, so we are very happy.
P = and in the album there will be MUSICA CHE RESTA …..
PR = All right, I cannot get more information from IL VOLO, it is so, but we will listen to them in a few days on the stage of the Ariston.
We are very happy of your return to the race. We love you.
P + G + I = Thanks, us too, thank you for your affection.
Did you like this interview?
They said many things but did not reveal anything, but, reading between the lines, maybe a few hints to a further album there was.
What do you say if the output CDs were two ???
