In Italy, February is considered the month of Sanremo.
This year, due to the pandemic, Sanremo will be there, but it has been scheduled for early March, and will also be without an audience.
It is thanks to Sanremo that I really got to know and started following Il Volo.
But how many times have Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio been in Sanremo on the Ariston stage?
In reality, really many times, because the filming of TI LASCIO UNA CANZONE, took place right at the Ariston Theater, but now, we are talking only about Sanremo.
In 2010, the running of the Sanremo festival was entrusted to Antonella Clerici.
As we all know, Antonella has always been proud of her three little tenors. That year in Sanremo there will be Queen Rania of Jordan and Antonella decides to pay homage to the Queen, with a beautiful little show of her three little tenors.
What little kids, but what big voices. So sweet, close to Queen Rania of Jordan and Antonella.
They still had a long way to go and a lot of study to face.
2015 is the year of triumph. A more than deserved victory and popularity also in Italy, where they were not so well known.
Here are our guys on the Sanremo red carpet, before the singing competitions begin.
The first evening was the consecration.
An explosion of joy and skill, welcomed the audience who was enchanted !!
Gianluca’s tears of emotion … It was February 11, the day of his twentieth birthday !!
It was the beginning of their worldwide adventure.
In the second evening, the evening dedicated to covers, Il Volo performed ANCORA.
Here is a short video.
Third evening, the decisive evening.
The boys, beautiful, elegant, excited.
Placido Domingo’s greetings arrive.
In the end, an explosion of applause.
And here is the beautiful video of the victory.
What a thrill, what a joy!
Right now I was in front of the TV too, I felt GRANDE AMORE for the first time, and it was love right away!
In 2018 the conductor of Sanremo is Claudio Baglioni. He wants IL Volo as super guests.
Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca begin their performance with NESSUN DORMA.
As good as ever, they also receive a standing ovation.
Then, together with Claudio Baglioni, they sang SONG FOR YOU.
This performance, wanted by Baglioni, I did not like very much, I sincerely prefer this song as it is usually performed by Il Volo.
And finally, the beautiful song by Claudio Baglioni, LA VITA ADESSO, truly engaging.
Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio have decided to present themselves as competitors again.
The race was beautiful, but the quality jury deliberately gave them very low, undeserved votes and then there was the scandal of the journalists who said bad words about Il Volo and recommended not to vote them so as not to let them win again.
Here they are upon their arrival in Sanremo, on the red carpet.
Instead their song MUSICA CHE RESTA was very popular with the audience and once again showed them so much love.
And then the night they sang with Alessandro Quarta and his fantastic violin. Very good, all the audience standing, lots of applause …. and the critics gave them the lowest rating …. incredible.
Despite all the low grades, Il Volo is lovingly supported by the home crowd and so in the end it comes third.
It was a nice roundup of appearances, but I’m sure there will be other opportunities to see Il Volo in Sanremo, both as guests and as competitors, because they can do it and because they certainly have the support of all of us- their fans who love them so much.
