Il Volo and “Scena Unita” by Daniela

Due to the pandemic, numerous concerts were canceled during this period, the arenas are empty, but also the cinemas and theaters. This situation has been going on for more than a year and many show business workers have had big problems for them and their families. I am not speaking only of the great artists, but of the many people who are in the backstage, workers, electricians, editors, audio technicians, etc.

It is really sad for us not to be able to go to the cinema or to the theater or to see a nice outdoor concert, but even more sad for these families to have no income. They are often people with seasonal work and for a year, they have had very little help and have not been able to count on a paid job.
In order to help these people and families, an Italian rapper, Fedez, decided to launch an initiative, creating a Fund to help show business workers.
This beautiful initiative is called “Scena Unita”.
Fedez involved many of his colleagues, and aimed to create a Fund to help show business workers. A concrete, economic commitment, which saw several well-known faces participate, committing themselves at the forefront of putting the idea into practice.

Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca certainly did not remain insensitive to this initiative and they too were part of it.
During the press conference for the tribute event to Morricone, a journalist had asked Il Volo about their participation  and Ignazio had confirmed.
But we had no doubts about their participation, knowing how much Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio are sensitive to these problems and how big their hearts are.

Fedez a couple of days ago thanked all the artists who participated, publishing the long list of the name, and wrote as follows:
“Every artist present participated in this initiative, donating personally. Thanks to all the artists and brands who have decided to support this cause ….”
The initiative has so far raised about 4 million euros and 1 million 800 thousand have already been distributed.

Guys, as usual, you don’t let us down.
Your altruism knows no bounds.
We are very proud of you.
Thanks from all of us.

What better way to finish, with the words of this beautiful song of yours:

Daniela

 

Today is also April 25, an important day for Italy, which commemorates the feast for the liberation.
But on April 25, 2009, 12 years ago, the adventure of three small children began: Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, they sang a song together for the first time on “Ti Lascio Una Canzone.”
Best wishes guys, that Il Volo is always active and a long road ahead of you, studded with many successes !! ❤❤❤

  1. Our boys are true humanitarians, they are generous with their time and money, supporting many good causes.

  2. We wouldn’t have expected any less from them. They are following their consciences, for if you have great wealth, you are expected to give back. They are so humble, so generous, how can we not love them, not only for their talent, but for their generous spirit. I will love Il Volo and support them in any way I can until I take my last breath.

  3. What a beautiful article thank you so much. Our wonderful guys are always ready to help ❤️❤️❤️

  4. Thank you Daniela for this informative and touching story. It is true that behind every great artist are many others who make every concert happen and without these people there could be no concerts. These people have families who have greatly suffered financially. We know that throughout the pandemic our boys have been generous with their time, talent and finances helping others. Their hearts are huge. We love them for this and so many reasons. They are the best! 🎶❤️🎶❤️🎶❤️🎶

    1. True Judy, we often forget about the many people who, with hard work and in the shadows, allow the staging of great shows.
      Bravo Il Volo who does not forget who I work with and for them.

  5. All 3 of our guys are generous in so many ways. I’m happy when I hear about it. I also believe it shows the Italian (way) culture. All the Italians I have had the privilege of knowing have been loving, sharing and giving.to others.

  6. Bravissimo Il Volo! I’m not at all surprised by their generosity. They’re a class act all the way. This is why we love them. Thank you for the article, Daniela. ❤️

  7. Je ne doute pas un instant de leur générosité ,ils l’ont deja démontrée a plusieurs reprises !Il y a surtout qu’ils ne s’en vantent jamais c’est avoir la classe !Merci a eux pour tout ! Merci Daniela <3

  8. Charity begins at home. Sound familiar? Anybody see the interview when Ignazio reminds Vito that he bought him a BMW for his birthday?
    Vito smiles and says “Not new. Used.” And Vito talks about money on the mattress while Ignazio laughs. A great short story.

  9. Yes, Boston girl, that video that is part of UNICI is truly unique. Simple families, who know what hard work is and that nothing comes from nothing but constant commitment. Our guys have had great examples of humility to follow, so they don’t forget who has less.
