2021 HAS ARRIVED by Daniela

And so here we are, 2021 has begun, with all our hopes and all our intentions. Above all health, because if there is not that, nothing can be !!

I read this nice thought on “If I were poetry” is a nice quote that I share with all of you.

WISHES for a wonderful 2021 !! 


I want to wish you the strength to think that things can improve,

positively exploit the time that passes,

feel alive which is different from being alive,

especially when you have no reason to continue.

I wish you strong shoulders,

outstretched hands to help you up when you are on the ground,

smiles born out of nowhere, warm hugs,

dates to remember, exciting departures, changes,

to shorten the distance with the people you love,

a pair of serene eyes . . . and everything you deserve.

 . . . and I add, many, but many concerts of Il Volo!! 


. . . and we laugh with this backstage video of the recording of the wishes for the new concerts in Verona.

Always cheerful and nice, these guys always know how to make us smile !! 😁


And here is what we all hope for this New Year !!

And we end with the wishes of Il Volo with the policemen of the Vatican Inspectorate.

Piero = Hello everyone, we are Il Volo, we are here with the policemen of the Vatican Inspectorate.

Ignazio = Together with them we want to wish a Happy New Year to all the state police.

Gianluca = We hope to see you soon and of course to be able to go back to life as always.

  1. Just looking at THEM and reading your words of encouragement bring hope to my lonely quarantine. I’m with the policemen. Cartoon says it all. You ladies can’t imagine the smiles your writings bring to those of us in the middle of Covid. Bless you with gratitude.

  2. What a lovely poem. How nice the guys are in good spirits I truly pray all goes well. Go with God.

  3. When I read or see Gianluca, Piero, Ignazio a smile automatically happens because they make me happy. I wish for world wide peace in 2021 and we all learn to understand peace is better than anger and war. Happy New Year 2021 to all IL Volo fans, and I am their fan for life. They sing so well solo or together. They are kind, humble, and funny. I dearly love them as grandsons as I’m a great grandma 8 times. ❤️

  4. Thank you, Daniela and Patti for another treat.
    Happy New Year! Looking forward to many blessings for everyone in 2021 and to more music from ‘lL Volo. Love to all!

    1. Mary Jane, we have all been hesitant since the beginning of the year, but we must also be confident, the good news will come and surprise us!

  5. Beautiful picture of the boys. So handsome. Thankyou Daniela for the lovely poem and funny video. I hope we can hear more from the boys next year. They always seem to make things better with their voices and their kind words. I wish you , all the flight crew, fans, and Piero, Ignazio, and Gianluca a healthy and Happy New Year.

  6. Thank you Pat and Daniela for the great poem and I’m sure we are all hoping the best is yet to come for 2021! God bless Piero, Ignazio, Gianluca and all the Flight Crew members. Just watching their videos of interviews or singing helps to bring a smile, joy and serenity. They give so much of themselves even during this difficult past year.

    1. Margaret, it’s true, let’s think with serenity about what will come and in the meantime let’s look and listen, smiling, to their beautiful videos.

  7. Many thanks to you Daniela, Pat, Susan and Valeria for your beautiful posts over the festive season.
    I wish our fabulous Il Volo guys and all of you a Happy and Healthy New Year.

    1. Dear Ineke, I confess I was a little worried to see that there were no comments from you. I’m calm now.
      We hope that the new year will bring a lot of health and good things for everyone !! A hug.

  8. Thanks to Daniela, Pat, Susan and everyone who manages this wonderful blog. I love the poem and thoughts for the new year. Wishing a happy new year to the whole Flight Crew. Hopeful that we are at the beginning of a healthy, happy and prosperous new year. Also wishes for a happy new year to the special guys of Il Volo and their crew. Looking forward to meeting many of you at one the the concerts coming up this year. Cheers!

    1. Janet, I really hope 2021 brings us another meeting, it would be great.
      I think Il Volo will make us dream, with the project they want to do. Fingers crossed!

  9. Just have to tell you ladies! They snuck in some Christmas presents today. TWO sets of Platinum Collection! My house is full of Italians. It’s marvelous . . .and very loud!

  10. Me too, Daniela!! Plus I have a new obsession–it’s the video of Il Volo and Gigi D’Alessio singing Tu Si ‘Na Cosi Grande Per Me about a year ago. I never knew that song–now I can’t get it out of my head. And the guys sound wonderful, plus I really like Gigi’s voice as well, and they blend perfectly. Help!
    Happy New Year to you and all the Flight Crew with much gratitude.

    1. Judi, “Tu si na cosa grande” is a beautiful song and our guys with Gigi d’Alessio sing it beautifully. There is great friendship and respect between Il Volo and Gigi. You know that this song is by Modugno (author of Volare). I propose it to you sung by himself.

  11. More thanks Daniela and to all who make these messages possible. They brighten our days when our lights have been dimmed by world events. Because our boys are not traveling and creating magnificent surprises for us all the time we feel it. Sending love to the boys and everyone! Happy New Year! ❤️❤️❤️ Let’s listen to Il Volo!!✨✨✨

    1. Judy, we need light and smiles, too many sad events have surrounded us.
      But you will see, the sun will shine brightly soon and there will be many contagious hugs only of so much affection!

  12. I was moved to tears, dear Daniela! I miss the boys so much … the little fresh news gives me great joy! So many of my friends died of Kovid-19. If it weren’t for our boys and fans and you and Susan … I don’t know if I would have lived a normal life. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I love Il Volo, I love the news about them. I wish you all peace, many wonderful moments with your loved ones and new good news for our boys! Happy and healthy 2021.🎄🎆🎤🎹🎧🎥📀

    1. Dear Antonela, it was a pleasure to give you relief. I’m sorry for all the friends you’ve lost. This is a big family, with many Volo-friends. Follow us and you will not feel alone. A hug.

  13. Thanks for the poem. Hopefully 2021 will see our wonderful singers giving concerts once again!! Dena Pitchfork, Mercer Island, Washington U.S.A.

    1. Dena, I’m glad you liked the poem, but I hope everything happens like animation, the vaccine can wipe out all this virus that has done so much harm. The voices of Il Volo will always accompany us in these moments.

  14. Daniela, thank you so much for posting the Modugno video for me. I enjoyed watching it, but of course prefer the Il Volo one. Gianluca’s voice was so rich and deep, Piero good as always, but Ignazio’s solo part took my breath away. It really is a lovely song, and all the guys show so much passion performing it.
    And my belated thanks for the beautiful poem you sent us.
    Longing for the day when we all have received the vaccine and are free again.

    1. Judy, I’m glad you enjoyed it and I naturally prefer the boys version too, I always thought Modugno was a little too theatrical in his songs, but they are undoubtedly beautiful songs!

  15. Happy New Year to all of you that are part of the Flight Crew and Happy New Year to all the fans that follow IlVolo Also Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio a Happy New Year filled with lots of concerts Your blog has certainly kept me sane and happy during this terrible time Thanks for all your hard work Stay safe everyone

  16. HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my Il Volo friends! and…Happy New Year’s to our beloved Il Volo guys! (I do hope they follow what we, the fans are thinking and doing). This year has been a serious retreat from normality, but…we have emerged into a new and far better year. And, I hope you, like me, have learned a lot from 2020. It is Easter time that I look forward to, even if I have to put the grill in the middle of my driveway and have all my family and neighbors sit at a safe distances spread out on all our lawns. We are going to celebrate being together and the start of a dawning of normal living!
    Listening to our beloved guys has made these many past gray days much more tolerable and uplifting. Their Christmas card from St. Peter’s Square was a true jeweled gift. As always, their beautiful voices were stunning (and so were they)! Best wishes to all, Sandi

    1. Sandi, what beautiful words, from a bad year, there is always something beautiful to remember.
      We will celebrate the simplest things, which by now we took for granted and we will realize how much this normality has been missing.
      And the voices of Il Volo will bring us so much joy.
      Good continuation to you!

  17. Ladies, thanks for brightening these gray days. The boys are sunshine and oxygen for us. It’s good to see you here Sandi, it’s been a long time since our lunch at Polaris. I wish you all a Better New Year.
