Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca are promoting their new CD, and these days they have many appointments with radio, TV and instore. One of the most popular appointments is certainly Verissimo, where they are expected by Silvia Toffanin.
In short, I translate what was said:
After the first pleasant and playful pleasantries, Silvia says that they have just arrived from overseas. Piero confirms that they have just returned from a tour in South America, where they have had great satisfaction and great emotions and says that they celebrate 10 years with a tour of 100 concerts.
Silvia says that, to celebrate these 10 years, she has prepared a video dedicated to them, where she will tell who they are and what they are in the world.
(I literally translate Silvia’s words that accompany the images in the video.)
Dear Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero, here we are.
Even if you’re young guys, you’re ready to celebrate an unprecedented career.
10 years of music and songs that warm the heart. It was 2009, when we were struck for the first time by your incredible voices.
10 years of career, of music, but above all of friendship and fidelity, in which you have become brothers, and it is precisely on this your indissoluble bond that you have built everything.
Those who have always followed you, know that this year you have marked a new goal in South America, where the Latin rhythm meets all the power of singing. Puerto Rico, San Salvador, Buenos Aires, San Paolo, Rio, you have enriched with magic their eyes, the views of those lands so far away, entering into the daily life of gestures, smiles and the eyes of those who have run to listen to you.
As in your last Latin stop in Santiago de Chile, or as when you sang for Pope Francis, in Panama.
Piero: there were 450,000 young people, there was a great silence.
Gianluca: a deafening silence
You have grown quickly, but thanks to the values that your origins have taught you, you have found the true strength, the ability to return where it all started, because for those who count, you are always and only: Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero.
Your life for 10 years is made of journeys that continue. Next year you will be back on tour between the United States and North America, passing once again to the legendary Radio City Music Hall in New York.
But the most beautiful thing is that in all these years, each of you has remained himself.
This is the power of dreams, to get anywhere, without ever feeling truly arrived.
Let me tell you, dear Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero, you are an Italian pride.
With love: Silvia.
The boys, moved, embrace Silvia (who is confirmed as a true Volover). Ignazio, jokes, pretending to cry. 😁😁😁
Gianluca states that Ignazio is the craziest of the three and Silvia responds ironically, that she didn’t understand it!
Gianluca says that without Ignazio, it would be a deadly bore, instead Piero jokingly says that are 10 years of endurance.
Silvia says they do everything together, travel together, eat together and Piero specifies ….. separate rooms. Piero confirms that they eat the same things and are intolerant to the same foods, then he says that they go to the gym and train together.
Gianluca says that they are profoundly different, but over the years the relationship has been strengthened.
Silvia asks if they fight and they say yes and Ignazio says that Piero and Gian are lower (shorter) because he hits them on the head. 😁
Piero says they argue but they don’t fight. Gian says that now they know what the things that annoy each other, and they avoid them.
Ignazio says that Gianluca is spiteful, while Piero is stubborn and wants to impose his ideas.
Then they talk about the physical aspect and say that Ignazio is happy with his newfound physical form and he says he is happy because he wants to show to those who have a physique like his, softer, which can get a slimmer shape.
Now Silvia faces the topic “girlfriends” and immediately tells Ignazio, whom she has read in some interviews, that he is looking for his girlfriend.
Ignazio replies that he is indeed for the family, and when he meets the right person he will be happy. Silvia asks him about his last girlfriend and he replies that he was very much in love, but then, as often happens, everything is over.
Silvia says it’s difficult for artists like them, always on tour to have a bond, Ignazio replies that it’s not easy, but it’s nice to leave and know that there is a person at home waiting for you. ❤️
Silvia asks if it is true that Ignazio also knows how to cook well and Piero replies that he does not like knowing what a dish is made of, but Ignazio must always explain it to him.
Then Piero says that he and Ignazio both live in Bologna and Ignazio, every now and then he sends him some ready-made food, just like a grandmother!!
Then Silvia asks if it’s true that they eat pasta before concerts and they confirm it, but three hours earlier.
Now Silvia, remembers Gianluca that last time he told him that he had a girlfriend and he confirms it and says that the girl becomes part of the family and she expects him, even if he stays out for months. Silvia asks for the name of the lucky one and Gianluca answers Francesca.❤️
Gianluca then, says that, they have learned to be selective with friendships and he says that boys of their age often confuse friendship with habit.
Silvia asks if the boys sleep close together and Piero says they have separate rooms well away from him, because Piero likes to sing when he takes a bath or a shower, so Gian and Ignazio want rooms far away from Piero.
Silvia takes a guitar and gives it to Ignazio, followed by a short performance of “Musica Che Resta”.
After playing the song, Silvia says she had goose bumps.
Silvia says she saw gestures of affection between them, so she asks if they really love each other. Gianluca confirms that they are like a big family, living their lives on two tracks, occasionally jumping on one or the other.
Speaking also of their daily life and studies. Piero confirms that he recently graduated, Gianluca admits to having only the first two years of gymnasium (classical high school).
Then Silvia shows a video where the guys play sports.
(Ignazio says to Silvia …. “You show us, what we do in our spare time.” 😁)
All three are very sporty.
Ignazio says that before the concert he goes to the gym, because he already arrives with a warm voice.
Silvia asks Piero if he has a girlfriend. He replies no and that he is well and that he sings better with fewer thoughts.
Silvia asks for a piece of “Grande Amore” to be performed.
Gianluca recalls that they have confirmed two new dates for Italy, Verona 30 August and Taormina 4 September for 2020. He says that they like to bring the beauty of Italy to their DVDs, in fact the last concert was done in the beautiful Matera . They confirm that their latest CD, IL VOLO The Best of 10 Years, was released all over the world on November 8th. Piero states that the Matera concert will be broadcast on Italian TV on Channel 5 on November 19th.
Silvia shows a video with a preview of the concert in Matera.
At this point, Silvia confirms the very important things, says that what is striking about the three of them, is that they are very different from their peers, who sometimes sing vulgarities, but they are very careful, good guys, guys of other times.
Piero says that they do not sing an ancient genre, but a classical genre, which never sets. It is the music that is part of the Italian cultural heritage, known to all, and they are only trying not to let it be forgotten and bring it to their peers.
Silvia confirms that they are really exemplary guys.
Ignatius says that they always try to give good examples.
They make the lives of three normal, regular, simple boys who convey love for what they do, and have gratitude for those who followed them from the beginning.
At this point Silvia proposes a very nice thing, the boys have to perform all the 19 songs on their CD in a minute.
Beautiful and nice demonstration that the boys perform very well, without however performing the “Nessun Dorma”.
Silvia says that they are music that remains!
There are the final greetings.
Ignazio thanks all those who in 10 years have always accompanied them, starting with Torpedine, Sony Music, thanks to Silvia who manages to transmit an artist for what it is and above all thanks to their fans who always support them and always make them feel the their affection.
Silvia thanks them, as they are and says her program is their home, to travel the world, but remember that the doors of her show are always open for them.
Kisses and final hugs.
What to say, it was a wonderful interview!
Silvia does not hide her genuine admiration for our boys and they are completely at ease and offer themselves to the people for what they are, beautiful, nice and cheerful.
Thanks for this nice interview.
