On the evening, of March 1st, Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero got on a plane to Los Angeles to participate in the Filming Italy event.
But what is Filming Italy?
Created and organized by Agnus Dei di Tiziana Rocca and the Italian Institute of Culture Los Angeles, Filming Italy – Los Angeles promotes Italy as a film set and bridge between Italian and American culture. The Festival whose artistic direction is entrusted to Tiziana Rocca, is presented under the auspices of the Consulate General of Italy in Los Angeles and will see the presence of Consul General Silvia Chiave.
This year, among the various guests, there will also be IL Volo who will also receive an award
Here is the greeting from Il Volo to Filming Italy.
PIERO: We would like to thank Filming Italy LA and the Italian Cultural Institute.
IGNAZIO: Because these have been two difficult years, and a festival like this really was needed.
GIANLUCA: Yes, to start over, to return to reality. We would also like to thank Tiziana Rocca, because she believed in us since the beginning of our career.
And here is Il Volo with Tiziana Rocca and in some beautiful shots. 😉
And here we are on the evening of the event, on the red carpet.
The guys after they received their award!
The following day Il Volo performed, three songs, in the theater but there were only short videos of the performance. Luckily, I found the full video.
“The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!”
And here is an article that talks about the Filming Italy Festival in Los Angeles. I have translated the part that interests you, Il Volo.🤗
Il Volo reserved for those present a tasty preview of the concert to be held at the Dolby Theater on October 15: an exclusive performance of three songs taken from the latest album, dedicated to the memory of maestro Ennio Morricone. ‘If’, ‘In Fantasy’ and ‘The Ecstasy of Gold’, the latter famous theme of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, with the words written by the master’s son, Andrea.
The voices of the two tenors and baritone were so powerful that they shook the walls of a theater usually reserved for private screenings, not for a concert of such intensity.
After the Festival, dinner with Tiziana Rocca and the Italian actor Salvatore Esposito.
Here they did a short interview with Access Hollywood.
While they were in Los Angeles, Il Volo was also interviewed by Morning News:
And then, they had an interview that aired on Fred fm.
