Switzerland has also been enchanted.
The MOON & STARS festival held in the square of Locarno was a success.
Here are some photos.
Great to see people in these photos.
Here are some short videos:
“ALMENO TU NELL’UNIVERSO”
On the fanpage LE MAMME ILVOLOVERS, I read a beautiful comment, about who was present in Locarno, I extract the most significant piece and I thank the fanpage.
I hadn’t heard them live for a year !! I thought that after Notte Magica in Taormina, where they had been great, they could no longer amaze me !! There are no more doubts about their greatness !!
Last night, instead, in Locarno, I had to think again !! Each time, they surpass themselves in skill !!
I don’t know where these guys are going, they are still so young, they have so many years ahead of them, but if they keep it up there is no one else who can have this success!!
I saw them so at ease, close-knit, happy to be on stage that transmitted joy to all of us present! I have seen their other concerts here in Switzerland, but to hear the square sing with them like last night, NEVER !!

“They came to steal hearts. There was a lot of love in the air for IL VOLO. The voices of the three boys come from another planet – even live. The three wonders transformed effortlessly between classical and pop music, international songs and Neapolitan songs. Pop Opera in a class of its own in Piazza Grande. Well done!”
(Scroll down on the webpage to see IL VOLO perform “Grande Amore”.)
A very nice review about IL VOLO written by Mauro Rossi appears on this Corriere del Ticino website: Corriere del Ticino article – Click Here
The translation of the paragraph below the photo of IL VOLO:
But let’s start with the classic-pop Italian trio made up of Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto (tenors) and Gianluca Ginoble (baritone) who may or may not like it as far as singing style (belcanto, although considered the emblem of Italianness all over the world, at home and from us does not enjoy too many consents) but that is absolutely impeccable. The voices of the three boys are in fact optimally set, the harmony is perfect and even the repertoire chosen by them does not make a wrinkle: a dozen classics of the melodic tradition of the Peninsula (from “Il Mondo” to the “L’immensità”, from “Lontano Dagli Occhi” to “Almeno tu nell’universo” to the inevitable “Volare”), four to five songs of their own (including the Sanremo singles “Grande Amore” and “Musica Che Resta”) and a couple of international standards like “My Way” and “Love Story”. All accompanied by a classical orchestra of about twenty elements (the Filarmonia Veneta) and a pop complex: a sumptuous organic capable of offering an ideal sound carpet to the performances of the three, performed both together and carving out their own spaces personal but always in the sign of a continuity and an interpretative balance that has never failed. The undisputed heirs of Bocelli, in short, that the public appreciated them with long and enthusiastic applause.
Beautiful this support from Abruzzo, who knows for whom will have given their warmest applause ?? 😉
This, their image is very beautiful.
And here are the beautiful words of Luce Blu, also present at the concert:
Hello everyone, yesterday I had the extraordinary fortune of finding myself in Locarno for the “Moon & Stars”, I don’t know what to tell you except under a different sky, other scents, a clearer night … the same intense sensations that you get straight to heart, they are impossible to hold and escape from the eyes. How can we not thank them for this? Always … it’s the minimum. But still for their availability and kindness, rare qualities in their world and perhaps also in the world in general.
All that immediately catches one’s eye is their serenity on stage and their great harmony, one can say aloud that they are back to being those three voices and one soul that in “Notte Magica” was perceived too, one can well understand, of the importance of that project so demanding that it weighed with considerable responsibility.
Quarta, then with that violin … an alien on earth that makes the strings of that instrument scream, and together those of the soul, the solos of our idols with its accompaniment cannot fail to make you shed tears.
And tonight Alessandro Quarta’s shirt is longer!!
What to say, although the program was shorter, for reasons of time, certainly, Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca, got a great concert.
BRAVISSIMI, but quick to rest, there’s another concert coming soon: Merano, al Maia Music Festival !!
