It was fantastic, the magic started 7 years ago for me, my first Il Volo concert was in 2015 in Brescia, in Piazza Loggia and yesterday 2 September 2022, after 7 years, the magic was repeated.
There are no words to describe the emotions.
But let’s start from the beginning. Piazza Loggia was bright, ready for the concert.
In the afternoon I attended the sound check, we members of the fan club were able to enter and sit in the first row. Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca arrived but did a very short sound check, but then they got off the stage and greeted all of us from the fan club one by one, exchanging a few words with each one. They were very kind and apologized for the shortness of the sound check due to the fact that being an open square, many people were behind the barriers and could watch and listen. The thing I did not like was that we at the fan club were absolutely forbidden to take pictures or videos, so there is nothing that testifies that we were in contact with the boys, and the people outside the barriers, on the other hand, could do all of them, the photos they wanted ….. what nonsense!
In the afternoon I also met Judith, from Canada, she reads to us on Flight Crew and told me that she has been following Il Volo for 10 years, since she casually saw them on the PBS television station, and she heard ITALIA, immediately she searched on the map where it was that nation of which he did not even know the name and since then, thanks to Il Volo, she returns to Italy every year. Now she loves Italy very much, but we know very well that Il Volo is the best ambassador of Italy !! ❤
And then it was a surprise in the evening, to discover that Judith and I at the concert had seats next to each other in the front row !! Perfect 🤗
My country is not far from Brescia, about 15 minutes by car, so we left an hour before the concert, but once in the center of Brescia, the chaos, there was no parking and long queues of cars, so we parked a little distant and then almost running to arrive in time, long queue at the entrance to the square and then, time to sit down and the concert begins.
I was ready with my video camera. “Ecstasy of Gold” starts, the camera starts having a thousand problems, and then “memory full” appears, but it’s not possible !!!! So all evening I had to shoot with my cellphone, which is not of excellent quality, I had to keep the images close, otherwise it blurs, but I must say that I am quite satisfied with the result and I hope you are too.
The first song that opens the concert is “Ecstasy Of Gold”. I really like this song, here is a small piece.
I haven’t recorded all the songs, but there are several videos and the following is of the beautiful Your Love, which reminds all us, Ignazio’s sad moments.
Click on the photo below to view Your Love.
The lineup is always the same as in Verona, and soon the solos arrived, beautifully sung by all three,
Ignazio begins with “All By Myself”. Superb interpretation, sweet and powerful at the same time. ❤
Gianluca immediately follows with the beautiful “Your Song”.
The speech before the song is also beautiful. He would like to thank his family who have always supported him and the luck of having found Il Volo and having been able to give life to his dream of singing.
Bravo Gianluca. And what about his voice? A marvel of beautiful emotions !!
It’s Piero’s turn, I chose “E lucean le stelle” from his singles. Touching interpretation and power of voice which drags us into a whirlwind of emotions !!

Naturally, people reacted with lots of love and lots of applause and standing ovations.
Even in the duets, wonderful as always:
Gianluca and Piero: MY WAY

Ignazio and Gianluca: HALLELUJAH
But how much emotion is there in this song? It is a whirlwind that carries you, and that also carries Gianluca and Ignazio.
How much emotion overwhelms all those present and the singers themselves.
IGNAZIO: This song is like a prayer, a prayer for those who have been less fortunate than us in these two years, for those who have not made it and for those who are still suffering, unfortunately.
To those who are experiencing war today, which is unthinkable (applause). ❤
GIANLUCA : Music too, can save lives, and can really unite, and we hope that with this song, which we will surely sing together, we will get excited together, and also think about who is no longer here.❤
At the end of the song, I didn’t film because I was applauding, but Ignazio and Gianluca were standing tight in embrace and Ignazio raises his arm up and, with his finger, he marks in the sky, he evidently dedicated the song to his dad. ❤
And now Piero and Ignazio, in the beautiful opera aria “La donna è mobile”, wonderful and what powerful voices !!
In these seven years there has been a great maturation in the voices of Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio, you can guess the great study work they have had over time, the results are evident.
A song that always has a certain effect: “Un amore così grande”.
As they perform “Here’s to You”, they descend among the people, confusion and happiness.
A short video with Gianluca in the crowd.
“L’amore si muove” and “Musica che resta”, while Ignazio is still in the crowd.
CARUSO, always beautiful.
And now let’s have fun with IL VOLO. All up to dance with VOLARE! 😁
Ignazio saw that I continued to film and in this video, he keeps an eye on me and nicely as Ignazio knows how to do, he tells me to follow him and warns me that he is watching me !!
Everyone will laugh with this video !!😁😁😁❤
And now, finished with the videos, a roundup of photos !!
And finally, the article published in newspaper Bresciaoggi, I’ll translate some parts for you.
Il Volo conquers Piazza della Loggia: in Brescia the trio is reaping applause.
No one more than them today is the bearer of made in Italy around the world: they are Gianluca Ginoble, Piero Barone and Ignazio Boschetto, alias Il Volo, who landed on the evening of Friday 2 September at the foot of the Loggia for the penultimate appointment in Brescia Summer Music, traditional summer festival organized by Cipiesse. In the square 2,500 enthusiastic spectators and a sea of applause at each performance.
The three singers, who returned to Brescia seven years after the concert held in the same setting, have come a long way, always in the wake of the neo-melodic and the lyric lyric lent to pop; mixture thanks to which the trio, by now, plows the skies at all altitudes………..
………….If what works, in music, deserves respect, the three guys who started from the television program “Ti lascio una canzone” and landed in theaters all over the world, evidently deserve the role of standard-bearer that Sony has built for them, with a suit classic that leaves several exceptions to pop, from Celine Dion to Elton John. With the rather successful intent of getting as far as possible.
I went to the concert with my husband and my sister (they were in the third row).
For my sister it was the first concert of Il Volo, needless to tell you how enthusiastic she was to have come, she told me that these are the concerts that it is nice to attend, she had a lot of fun and recognized the great skill of our loved ones.
It was a great evening.
Seven years ago I didn’t know what to expect, but I was thrilled by their concert, so much so that I decided to be their fan.
Today after 7 years, they have still been able to amaze me, their voices are always better and, even if I know every nuance by now, they always amaze me. Their concert is a joy for the ears and also for the eyes, we like what we hear and see, they are always elegant, great brothers in their manner, but always within the limits of elegance, very sweet with children and the elderly, representatives of an elegance that becomes increasingly rare in young artists. Brilliant voices that make millions of hearts shine all over the world.
They are Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, they areIl Volo!
…… but tomorrow is another day and another concert: Vicenza !!
Here are a few screen shots of Ignazio from Deborah.❤❤❤
