One of the things that have always amazed me, being a volover, is the wonderful friendship that is formed between us fans of IL VOLO from all over the world, because as I have always said “IL VOLO, builds bridges of friendship”.
My meetings started before the concert, in fact, on September 20th in the morning. I went to the Brescia train station to meet Jeannette Giglio and Deborah Georgini Beaupre.
They stopped in Brescia until the following day.
We had the whole day available, and so I took them to see my city, Brescia.
They walked a lot, so I took them to their hotel to rest and in the evening we met for a dinner together.
The next day, being a beautiful day, I decided to take them to visit Lake Iseo, which is very close to Brescia.
Here, too, they walked a lot, but they are two fantastic women, full of energy, it was really nice and fun to be with them.
Then I took them back to the station, where they would take the train to Bologna, we would see each other at the concert !!

And here we are at the day of the concert. Everyone lined up for the soundcheck, and here’s who I met:
Wang Xinjie, remember, the sweet Chinese lady who followed them to Capri when they recorded “A CHI MI DICE”, sweet Xinjie.
Then I immediately saw Alicja from Poland, impossible not to notice her, she is a tornado !!
Then Ann Marie Prior called me, with whom I exchanged some news while I was in the queue.
I have been very pleased to see Susan Tafanelli and her brother Robert. We did not take a picture together so I published below the one of two years ago at the Arena, when we met.
Then I met, with great pleasure from the beautiful Greece, two beautiful ladies: Fofi Saratsioti and Katerina Tsaousi, and from the U.S., Joanie Greenspan and Wendy Campbell, too bad I didn’t take the picture with them all.
Then I met the dear, dear friend with whom I shared many translations: RoseMarie Paliobeis.
And then I also met Janet Dong and her husband, very enthusiastic about Italy.
And here, gathered, the trio : Jeannette, Deborah and I … what a night guys, an incredible concert!
At the souncheck I was supposed to meet Jana and her friend Lorna, but they only came for the concert and there was too much confusion there so we didn’t see each other, but we already had an appointment for the next day in Desenzano, on Lake Garda.
And indeed here we are the next day, RoseMarie, Jana and me.
It was nice to meet, we had lunch together and walked along the lake. The difference in language has been overcome and we have understood each other for better or worse, and it was beautiful.
Naturally I also met many Italian friends, whom I knew only thanks to the comments we exchange almost every day.
I never thought I could make these beautiful friendships from one end of the world to the other, and all this was possible thanks to the love that unites us in our admiration for Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio.
Thanks IL VOLO !!! ❤️❤️❤️
