There is not a moment of rest for Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero. They returned on 29 November from Israel, arriving in Milan and in the evening of the same day they had a private event, a concert in the beautiful Milan Cathedral.

On 29 November 2018, exactly 4 years ago, Il Volo held a concert in the Milan Cathedral. The concert was planned by Mediolanum Bank and its founder Mr. Ennio Doris.
In this photo, you can see Mr. Ennio Doris and his wife in 2018 congratulating Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero. Mr. Doris has always admired the beautiful voices of Il Volo.

A year ago, on November 24, 2021, Mr. Ennio Doris died, and Mediolanum Bank, in memory of its founder, wanted this concert.
At the concert, only people with an invitation from Mediolanum Bank were present. The event was called: MUSIC IN THE HEART.
It wasn’t a simple concert, it was also done with a noble reason: a fundraiser, as communicated by the Mediolanum Foundation.
In the splendid setting of the Milan Cathedral, dear to the President Ennio Doris, Banca Mediolanum continues, in his memory and one year after his death, to support the Mediolanum Foundation.
The funds raised will be used to support the “Families in emergency” project to help 1,000 children thanks to donations that will be destined for Istituto Beata Vergine Addolorata and Associazione San Fedele, two historic realities in the Milan area, which are committed to restoring dignity and autonomy to vulnerable families.
Accommodation will be made available, foodstuffs and clothing distributed, treatments and medical supplies offered to Italian and foreign families in conditions of great hardship.
It is possible to contribute by bank transfer to the current account held by the Mediolanum Onlus Foundation using:
– IBAN: IT68C0306234210000000417750
– causal: “CONCERT IN DUOMO – FAMILIES IN EMERGENCY”
It was certainly a beautiful event, but unfortunately there aren’t many videos or photos, being a private event, so I’m attaching what I found.
Photos from Maestro Grani before the concert ….
and during the concert.
With them also a children’s choir, “I Piccoli Cantori di Milano”.
Here is the list of songs performed:
Carols the Bells (choir I Piccoli Cantori di Milano)
SE, Cinema Paradiso
E più ti penso
Tu scendi dalle stelle
Ave Maria Mater Misericordiae
O Holy Night
War is Over (with choir)
Feliz Navidad (with choir)
Two short videos:
And here they are together with some members of the orchestra.
Beautiful event, too bad that we were not able to see it.
Surely it must have been wonderful to be able to hear your beautiful voices within the walls of the Milan Cathedral.
But on Sunday 4 December, in the afternoon, there is already another engagement, they will be guests on AMICI on Canale 5.
But you never stop??
And in fact, here they are on the AMICI show.
AMICI is a program where the kids who participate highlight their talent for singing and dancing, in short, a talent show. It is a program very popular with very young people.
Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca enter after a nice video promo, and then they get in three positions to watch and comment on the performances of the various boys. At the end of the video, you will also find the performance of Il Volo singing HAPPY CHRISTMAS, War is Over.
At the end of the song, Piero recalls the dates of the three concerts in Italy and the concert on Canale 5 from Jerusalem.
Ignazio adds the following, addressed to the AMICI students:
“I wanted to tell you one thing, the greatest limit of ourselves, we are ourselves, until we stop believing. Never stop believing, never, never, never.
Well done everyone!!”
As you have certainly noticed, our boys are dressed in rather strange clothes, for them, but you must understand that AMICI is a program very popular with very young people and therefore Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca have shown, in their clothing, that they are not three young in very serious clothes, but wanting to get closer to the tastes of young people.
Even though they only sang one song, I liked their attitude at the end of going among the AMICI participants.
These are young people who hardly listen to Il Volo and don’t go to their concerts, so I like that Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero try to get closer to this type of audience that otherwise wouldn’t even listen to them.
After a few days we saw two very different realities of Il Volo:
Classic, elegant, mature in the event in the Duomo in Milan.
Sporty, relaxed, youthful, on the TV show AMICI.
But their voices are always the same, the voices that only Il Volo can have!!!
