Despite the very strong wind, MERANO, at Ippodromo di Maia, was also done.
It was the first time Il VOLO had performed in Trentino Alto Adige, and despite the wind, the people were warm and it was a success.
Here is a twitter of the Regional TG.

Fourth and last concert of the Maia Music Festival at the #Merano racecourse. 3,500 spectators listen to the songs of the Volo, the three opera singers, two tenors and a baritone, famous all over the world. Accompanied by an orchestra, they performed the most famous classics.
Here, a short video of “MY WAY”, you can hear and see the strong wind, but the boys have continued in their performance undaunted …… and the people, liked.
“LONTANO DAGLI OCCHI”
“LA VOCE DEL SILENZIO”
“E PENSO A TE”
“L’AMORE SI MUOVE”
My friend Marina was present at the concert, and said it was a success.
There were many people from Germany and Austria.
Despite the wind, the curtains flew, and then the musical scores, the boys have not lost their way of making jokes. This is a video of their “siparietto” (witty, sequence of jokes).
(a spotlight fell on the stage)
G = A sudden gust of wind
I = (turning to the orchestras and playing down) in the end you only took a blow from the lamppost.
G = Even the lights can take flight !! (laughter and applause).
The important thing is that you are well. (addressing people) And how are you?
I’ve already seen some of you, we’ve known each other, some haven’t, because it’s the first time we’ve come here.
I = I really see many new faces.
P = The lady is from Germany.
I = Wasn’t it better to wait until we came to Germany?
P = Here you speak German, don’t you? (the people disagrees)
I = That is, here they speak Italian and, as a second language, German. (this is an area on the border with Germany and Austria, but the identity is Italian)
(Ignazio reads aloud, a great message among the people) I wish I had wings to fly there from you ……… but you don’t need wings, lady, but your legs!!
P = (reads another message) I would like a hug ……. love, later, later.
I = What is it now guys?
P = I don’t know.
G = It’s time to sing, to go on, we all know this song.
These guys are too nice, real entertainers, Marina, also said that, at a certain point, as the wind was getting stronger (in fact Ignazio and Piero finally put a sweatshirt on), Ignazio said: “Okay that our name is Il Volo, but do not overdo it with this wind !!”
They are too funny.
This instead is a short video of amusing speeches, between Ignazio and Piero, taken up by another friend, Antonietta.
P = This is a fairly important year for us, in these 10 years, we have discovered that we have different musical tastes, even three personalities and three different vocalities.
So for a couple of years, we started singing singly even during concerts.
Tonight, the new silhouette of IL VOLO (indicates Ignazio, who has lost weight …. laughter), before we were 4 to sing, 1,2,3 and 4 (while he says this, he indicates himself, then Gianluca and two sometimes Ignazio), now, we are three.
I = I too, I remember we were: me, Gianluca and Dumbo (refers to Piero’s ears …… laughter).
P = I had a little ears like that! (he spreads his ears), then, like tonight, there was a gust of wind and they became like this (he squeezes his ears).
I = But be careful that this wind makes them reopen to you !!
Really hilarious, and Antonietta, told me that so many people in front of and behind her, commented saying, “But how good, how nice they are.”
And here an interview published by the TG Alto Adige.
PR = You are in Merano for the first time, what was your impression?
I = We arrived at night, so we didn’t get a chance to see the place, but it is a very beautiful place, in the mountains, really very beautiful and relaxing.
PR = In a Hippodrome, have you never sung?
I = No, never sang, but I’m a horse lover, so I’m in my habitat.
PR = And you instead? (addressed to Piero)
P = This morning, I woke up, opened the window, and it really looked like a surreal landscape, I sent a picture in the family group, because it looked like a postcard.
PR = Singing at the Hippodrome? (addressed to Gianluca)
G = Surely it is something different, singing at the Hippodrome will be a beautiful emotion. We have had the opportunity to sing in different places, but we will surely remember this, a place as beautiful as Trentino, we love it and Merano is a wonderful city.
In this beautiful video of another TG of ALTO ADIGE TV, there are beautiful words for Il VOLO, I bring you the most important ones.
“Not just music, because Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca are also true entertainers, last night, despite the wind and singing in chorus, the audience also enjoyed the joking words that framed the 15 songs sung by the three boys.
Voices set for opera singing, vocal skills, out of the ordinary, but also the desire to revisit the best of Italian pop music.”
Some beautiful shots.
Perfect, even Trentino Alto Adige, has been successfully archived.
Wherever they go, there are only nice comments and nice articles.
The tenth year celebrations are going very well, and success is really deserved.
But there is still a long way to go, it’s time for Cattolica!
