The day before Easter there was a short connection from Il Volo to the Porta a Porta transmission, conducted by Bruno Vespa.
For those who follow Il Volo recently, it is news like any other, but for those who have long been fond of boys, remember well the beautiful episodes of Porta a Porta, when the boys, here in Italy, had not yet won Sanremo and therefore still little known and then immediately after, when they were at the height of their popularity.
This time was short, but we all want a whole evening with who the boys called “Uncle Bruno”, and hopefully this will happen soon.
Remember the three guys from Il Volo?
Of course you remember them, they are now famous in Italy and in the world. We baptized them 10 years ago, then they really broke out everywhere.
This is the tenth anniversary of their activity and at the beginning of March they were completing an extraordinary tour with seven thousand people every night all sold out, through America and Canada, then at some point in America things started to go wrong, in Italy, very badly, and they decided to cancel some concerts and come back.
Returning from the US, they made the mandatory quarantine, then the quarantine that we all do. They are locked in the house, in three different houses and have put together their voices to sing a symbolic song: IL MONDO/THE WORLD, the famous 1965 song by Jimmy Fontana, which brought them a lot of luck, let’s listen to them.
IL MONDO starts
BV = Good evening guys, good evening, Gianluca Ginoble from Roseto degli Abruzzi, Ignazio Boschetto from Bologna, Piero Barone from Naro.
G = Good evening.
I = Hi Bruno.
P = Hi Uncle Bruno, how are you.
BV = Hi, I’m fine, with a lot of nostalgia to see you, the RAI1 audience will see you and applaud you again on Tuesday before Porta a Porta.
On Tuesday we will broadcast one of your 2015 concerts made at the Arena in Verona, you will comment on it from your homes, and then we will arrive (in the sense that Porta a Porta is broadcast after the concert).
Of course you are terribly young still, 25 years old, the oldest is Piero who is 26.
How did it go in America?
Sold out every evening.
P = This tour was full of emotions, especially at the beginning, from Italy worries came to us, but we honestly didn’t realize the situation, so we continued to do concerts.
The last three concerts we were forced to cancel, because they closed all the connections from Europe, to Italy from the United States, so we canceled the concerts and returned to Italy.
But we had a nice tour and now we are happy to be at home with our family members safe.
BV = Honestly, you were never at home, what impression did it make you, being locked in a house, with the few movements allowed to each of us, you who are used to crowds of thousands and thousands of people?
I = (Ignazio and Gian answer at the same time, then decide that Ignazio continues)
Personally, I am used to it and I like to stay at home, when I can and we are here, I often stay at home, but now, the nice thing is to have re-found the love of the people close to us, our family members, they are always here, and it is often an affection that we take for granted and even though we always travel, we have had the confirmation that our family is a great reference point.
BV = This I think also applies to Gianluca and Piero, I guess.
G = Of course. We returned on March 13, justly the restrictions imposed by the government to stem the infection have forced everyone to stay at home and we must lead by example.
Staying at home for us who are 9-10 months a year away from home is not entirely negative, because as Ignazio said, our family is the most important thing and now we are together 24 hours a day.
I started playing the piano again, with my brother we sing and play all the time, therefore, in the tragedy, there are also positive things, so we try to have a little “spirit of adaptation”, stay at home and rediscover those passions that were hidden.
P = Objectively, Bruno, we are experiencing a completely new situation, but this moment, however extreme and complicated, calls everyone’s attention, in applying the rules that are indicated to us.
But we, like Il Volo and all artists like us, must lead by example and using today’s technology, to communicate to more people that the situation is serious and everyone’s help is needed.
BV = Guys, thank you, good luck, ready for a brilliant recovery in Italy and worldwide, the appointment is on RAI1 on Tuesday evening.
I = Can I say one last thing?
BV = Of course, Ignazio.
I = I wanted to say something that has been a point of discussion in many broadcasts, I want to tell people at home to listen only to official news, to follow only official sites, because fake news and misrepresented news are very dangerous for everyone, for everyone’s mood, for the Country and for the world. So just read the right news and stay at home like us.
Bruno, grazie mille, because you were one of the first to believe in us.
BV = I’m glad that this fake news is said by a young man, because young people are often victims of social media, and in these days we are listening to everything.
Below is the video of the promotion of the Il Volo concert, made in the Arena in 2015, and which will be re-transmitted on RAI 1 on Tuesday 14 April at 09:30 pm, Italian time.
The concert will be commented directly by Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca from their homes.
For those able to connect and view RAI 1, it is always a good concert to see and also the guys will sing many songs, and also LA VITA, whose words are really significant in this period.
