SUMMARY OF CHRISTMAS EVENTS by Daniela

Since the last time I wrote a post, it’s amazing how many things our guys have done, but let’s try to retrace all their commitments.

Milan was also embellished with beautiful IL VOLO posters.

 

Summary 01

On December 17, Il Volo takes part in the presentation in Bologna of the new book by dear friend Bartoletti: ALMANACCO DI SANREMO. The boys were kind and affable to everyone.

Summary 02

At the end of the evening, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca recorded a video message dedicated to Sinisa Miajlovich (coach of the Bologna football team, currently suffering from leukemia). Here are some of the beautiful words written by Bartoletti.

“When the presentation of a book ends with Il Volo that stands up to go to dedicate ‘Grande Amore’ to Arianna Miajlovich sitting in the front row (then asking her cell phone to send a private encouragement video to Sinisa) there would already be very little to be added. Yet before, there had been … everything else. Between participation, joy and even a little emotion. With the acquired certainty that the A of Almanac is the same as A of Friendship (Amicizia ): and also the A of Love (Amore).

Difficult to find the words to thank Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero who came on PURPOSE to give us their affection.”

Summary 03

Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio, have also been to visit an exhibition in Bologna, dedicated to Italian music “NOI, NON ERAVAMO SOLO CANZONETTE”.

Summary 04

On December 19th, Il Volo performed in Monte Carlo, in the “Christmas Time in Monte Carlo” event. 

Summary 06

Summary 12

Then, Il Volo announces a surprise for all the fans, a free and live mini concert, which will be held on 20 December outdoors, in front of the Milan train station.

Unfortunately on December 20 there is a horrible weather, it rains a lot and there is cold wind, but as promised, the boys do the mini live as announced.

Summary 07

 

 

 

We must make a big and warm applause to the guys who performed despite the impossible weather, but also to the fans who attended, despite the cold, wind and tremendous rain.

22 December

On RAI1 there is a television program I SOLITI IGNOTI, which is done for charity purposes,TELETHON. During the broadcast there will be many guests, including IL Volo, the aim is to guess who the people are, through clues. In the end, Il Volo knows exactly how to guess and the result of the evening of the game and the phone calls from home will go to charity.

The program was a lot of fun, the boys also sang two songs. Many laughs. Here is a  video of the whole evening.

If you have a problem hearing the audio part of “Grande Amore”  a link below will take you directly to the Sicilian Facebook Fan Page. You should be able to hear it there. 😊

Summary 08

From Mexico, images of NAVIDAD ATZECA arrive, where Il Volo sings “O HOLY NIGHT”, recorded during their last visit to Mexico.

What a sweet and beautiful song, Christmas is coming !! ❤️

24 December

Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca extend their best wishes with this video.

 

Summary 09
Gianluca and Luna

New concert dates have also been announced:
June 16 – Dusseldorf
June 18 – Frankfurt
June 29 – Barcelona
July 11 – Lodz
July 13 – Bulgaria
July 15 – Bucharest

Summary 10

During the Christmas holidays, Piero went to Cortina for a holiday in the snow, together with friends.

 

A nice piano arrived at Gianluca’s house and, in a short time, Gian cheered us up with this nice video, where he sings and PLAYS his new piano, good Gianluca!!

Instead on New Year’s Eve, a short video published by Red Ronnie made us discover Ignazio playing the guitar during a song with friends.

And on the first day of the new year, this beautiful video was released. It was done with the aim of sensitizing young people to turn the radio volume down or off while parking, because loud music could divert attention from the maneuver.

Very nice guys, who lent themselves to this video !!

Summary 13

In short, a very busy period for Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, but it did not end here, on January 3, they will be guests on RAI1 in the LA PORTA DEI SOGNI program, also they should be guests of PORTA A PORTA with Bruno Vespa.

I can’t wait to see them again at Porta a Porta !!

Summary 11

Dear all,

I want to apologize to all of you for being absent for a long time, without any explanation, from this site.

I am very sorry that this happened and that I was not present for Christmas and New Year greetings. 

I have had a very difficult period, because of health problems in my family, which have not yet been solved.

It wasn’t very happy days, but I have thought of you all.

So even if late, accept my best wishes for a happy 2020 year, beautiful concerts are waiting for you!! 

Daniela

I appreciate all of your postings on the guys…I haven’t seen them in person and I love them so very much. My heart has been opened and I attribute that to Gianluca’s beautiful voice, passion and his sweetness and warmth…a love like his I can only dream of.

  15. Dear Daniela, not to worry about things we cannot help. I pray for all to come out as it should. We are all connected Il Volovers because of you and as you see, we will support you through this. I loved what you just sent. These “boys” are so generous with themselves. I hope they will go off the grid for awhile to recuperate and prepare for the next round of touring. They deserve it. Their schedule is daunting. I am counting the days till March 7th-my turn to see them.
    Love to you and take care,

  16. Dear Daniela,
    I was thinking about you last night and wondering why you had been absent so long. I was about to do a search on the computer to see if I could discover what had happened. I’m sorry for the ill health that has visited your family, but I’m glad to have “found” you without doing a big search. I will pray for your family and for a better 2020 to be yours. Thank you for all of the questions you answere for those of us who do not speak Italian.
    Peace and blessings be yours.

  31. Dear Daniela,

    You never need to apologize when family problems occur. I, too, have had, in 2019, several family health (and death) issues. They call us to home and necessitate our undivided attention. I do hope and pray that the family member or members are getting better.

    I want to thank you again for your amazing gifts of time and energy to keep all of us in the loop of our beloved boys’ activities.

    Happy New Year and may 2020 be a super year for you and yours.
