The last stage of the Italian summer tour has also arrived: Vicenza.
I must admit that, even though Vicenza is less than 80 miles from Brescia, I have never seen this city.
My friend Antonietta, went to the concert in Vicenza and sent me many beautiful photos and so let’s start by seeing how beautiful the Piazza dei Signori is.
Antonietta sent me some videos of the guy’s speeches, which I gladly translate for you.
PIERO = It rains, it does not rain, it rains, it does not rain. Luckily, so far it has gone well (obviously because the concert is outdoors).Thank you for coming to this concert, we are delighted (applause).
Today is the last date of this summer tour, tomorrow we leave two months for the U.S. on tour….
GIANLUCA = Who wants to come with us ???
PIERO = Anyone who wants to come can go with them !!
GIANLUCA = (He reads a sign) “You are the best gift for my 90th birthday !!” Greetings lady, best wishes, best wishes !!
PIERO = (he talks to Ignazio) Since I’m a mature person and I know you well, before you chase me away, I’m leaving.
IGNAZIO = Bravo!
PIERO = Ciao, see you later.
GIAN = (to Ignazio) Did you drink the coffee?
IGNAZIO = No. Coffee hurts, for heaven’s sake, because it can create gastric reflux, so the mucous membranes become inflamed (he points to a grandmother in the audience), see the lady nods. I studied!
GIAN = What happens now?
IGNAZIO = Before the tour, I called Gianluca and told him: “What should we do in a duet Gianluca?” And I propose a song that was already part of our wishes.
GIAN = We’ve been wanting to do it for years.
IGNAZIO = One of those songs that you think we have to do sooner or later. Let’s do it.
And so we decided to sing this song, especially this year, because we have come from two very difficult years, where there have been people less fortunate than us, who have suffered and continue to suffer. We want to dedicate it to those who are suffering, to those who listen to all the music to feel a little better, and especially to those who are watching us from up there. (applause)
Ignazio’s thought certainly went to Vito ❤, and now, how touching is this speech by Piero, dedicated to the memory of his grandfather Pietro !! ❤
PIERO = You know the love I have towards opera. I study every day to improve, and to learn more and more. It is a magnificent journey.
I owe everything to a person, who unfortunately has not been with us for a few days, and it is the person who made me discover, (applause) who transmitted this vocation to me. My grandfather.
A few songs:
“SE”Thanks to Laura Peyretti
“ALL BY MYSELF”Thanks to Francesca Brazzale
“LA DONNA E’ MOBILE”Thanks to Francesca Brazzale
The final notes ofGRANDE AMORE!!
There were a lot of people and big screens were put up to allow everyone to see the guys.
The audience enjoyed the concert very much and responded with a lot of applause !!
And look at the beautiful photos published by the Municipality of Vicenza.
And look at what beautiful photos Antonietta managed to take during the Vicenza soundcheck.
And so we came to the last summer concert, a little sad, because for two months we will not see Il Volo here with us, but …………. we celebrate because they are already in your continent, they have rested very little and are ready to start your adventure !!
