Thank you, Ignazio and Fabio. You unleashed the color in the most delicious way!
This has been an exciting week on BOIN!
We started our week with Valentine’s Day and the symbol of love, two turtle doves.
The guys really got into Valentine’s Day! They used the turtle doves to draw us in and then asked the question “How will you spend this day of love?”
The turtle doves symbolize love and faithfulness, they mate for life, work together to build nests and raise their young together. Nothing more romantic than that!
Maybe Fabio was thinking about Noah and the creation of his family!
They followed that with a heart with one face. And the saying “Happy Singles party. May your other half arrive soon.” I think the idea of the post was that singles can be comfortable with their status. And if love comes along, that’s good too!
I saw the post as a heart waiting to be loved. I quoted, “I await you with such desire that my heart melts with love for you!” So, I’m a romantic!
I think Ignazio and Fabio are romantics too!
Then there were the ice cream cones. My thought is the ice cream cone in black and white left something to be desired! Could that be Color?
Finally, after a month of wondering and waiting, the Color begins!
I can’t think of a better way to express color! Who doesn’t like an ice cream cone and with sprinkles too! WOW, that certainly was scrumptious!
The colors were rich! They shook up our senses! They brought back summers on the beach and, beautiful, delightful treats!
I think the idea for gelato came from Ignazio. I don’t know how much Fabio likes it but, I do know Ignazio loves gelato and ice cream.
Time to introduce some new characters!
Our first character is a little guy with one arm torn off. “When you help others and, they take all of you!” And the question, “Let us know, in the comments, if this ever happened to you.”
I think they were trying to say that sometimes you help people and, they take advantage of you! They tear you apart!
Or maybe they were using it as a metaphor on love. Love can tear you apart!
I will say the character in black and white caused quite a stir. Many thought he was so sad. But, when theCOLORshowed up, he was a happy little guy! Isn’t it amazing what color can do?
After the question “Black and White or Color,” we found out that it was almost an even split. So, Fabio and Ignazio informed us that BOIN will continue in Black and White but will definitely continue to bring us Color! It’s only right that they should continue in Black and White. It’s their signature! The minute Black and White comes up on Instagram, we know there’s a new post from BOIN!
Remarkable that Black and White can attract more attention than Color! Bravo guys!
And, then there was the little pig. In Black and White he reminded me of an old piggy bank!
Odd that, in color, he was dripping in ice cream!
Someone is obsessed with ice cream, Ignazio!!!
Well ladies, today the guys gave us a nod! They introduced us to a valuable BOIN Crew member. In her elegant Black and White business suit, Daisy, proudly represented all of us out there!
Daisy also proved that ladies know how to have fun! After work, she stepped out in her lovely yellow and green ensemble with a beautiful petal white necklace! ! “Isn’t She Lovely!” Maybe she’ll meet the love of her life! You go girl!And you go ladies to @boincollection to FOLLOW the achievements of all the BOIN Crew Ladies!
So, the guys spent the week telling us that we can find love or lose love in many different ways!
In the person who shares Love with us! In the family we create from Love! Or in the scrumptious Ice Cream that we Love! And they remind us that Love can be lost but it can always be found again! No matter how you say Love, It’s Delicious!
The news was published a few days ago by Panariello (comedian and presenter), on Instagram, Il Volo was the guest of the broadcast on RAI3, LUI È PEGGIO DI ME (HE IS WORSE THAN ME), conducted by Panariello and Giannini, Thursday 18 February at 9:20 pm (Italian time).
The next day it was confirmed by the official Il Volo facebook page:
Hello “ilvolovers”, we have news for you: Thursday 18 February we will be guests of “He is worse than me” from 21.20 on Rai 3.
We are waiting for you!
Needless to say, this news made us very happy, seeing Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio on TV makes us happy, also because it is a rather sad period for many people:
in short – a really hard time.
Who knows what they will sing ? Who knows what they will do !!!
I saw the show and I have to make a small premise.
This show is hosted by Panariello, comedian and presenter and Giallini, actor and comedian. The screenplay imagines a television studio divided into two halves by a wall, a more serious part held by Panariello who does interviews with guests and a more rock part, held by Giallini.
The whole show is focused on humorous jokes, even if they are said in a serious tone. Translating, it is difficult to make people understand if a sentence is joking or not, so I thought of inserting smiley faces at the end if the sentence is ironic, and hearts if the sentence is said seriously.
And now enjoy the video and the translation.
PANARIELLO = It’s the moment of three guests that I particularly care about.
More than three guests, I would say three friends, they are the most famous musical group in the world. They duet with the biggest stars of the stage, of the international music scene.
They’ve filled the biggest theaters in the world, like NYC’s RCMH and more.
They even sang in front of Pope Francis.
Ladies and gentlemen: IL VOLO. (start the video, only Ignazio enters)
IGNAZIO= Good evening
PANARIELLO = Good evening
IGNAZIO = How are you?
PANARIELLO = Good. And you, all right? Please (sit down).
IGNAZIO = Beautiful tie. 😁
PANARIELLO = Thanks. (he looks behind the scenes, to see if the other two arrive ….. but they don’t arrive) 😁
Il Volo … so, Ignazio Boschetto, here you are, I Ignazio, I always say it, I consider you a bit the leader of the group, 😁 let’s face it, you are the most fascinating one, but now I don’t want to be here to make you compliments.
IGNAZIO = I am the tallest! 😁
PANARIELLO =, Yes, the one a little higher. I wanted to ask you, how are you doing with the others in the group? How is it going in this situation in which you cannot go around the world, for you three also a sort of forced coexistence, working together every day, how is the relationship now?
IGNAZIO= Fortunately, the lock-down made us stay a little distant 😁
But we missed so much, to stay away from each other ……. we are like a family, used to living 6/7 months a year, always together, and finding ourselves far away, without being able to share a stage, nor share an emotion, because in the end it is what we do during the year, that is to share many emotions together. It was difficult, but then, getting back to spending time together was even more beautiful. ❤
PANARIELLO = You have rediscovered the joy of being together again.
Look, so many historical groups have split, from Sting who left POLICE, Roger Water who left PINK FLOYD, Renzi who left PD 😁 (he’s an Italian politician who left his political group), have you ever thought to do, and you deserve it, a solo career, alone?, go on alone? … you could do it very well ..
IGNAZIO = Absolutely not, I never thought about it, I’m fine like this, I like what we sing, I like what we do, it would be stupid to think of making a career alone.❤
PANARIELLO = Well, this does you honor, it does you a lot of honor.
IGNAZIO = Thank you. A little, I also had to say it. 😁
However nice the tie.😁😁
PANARIELLO= Thank you, very kind, I chose it personally.😁
Listen, now the time has come to enter a little more into the character Ignazio, I would like to ask you a slightly embarrassing question … (very loud rock sounds start from the nearby studio) …… excuse a second. (approaches the partition wall)
“Giallini please do me a courtesy, you can make sounds a little softer with the band, come on please, a little calmer.”
GIALLINI = Forgive me.
PANARIELLO = (goes back to his seat and the interlocutor has changed, now Gianluca is here, Panariello is surprised but continues) 😁 Hi!
GIANLUCA = Good evening.
PANARIELLO = Ah, Gianluca Ginoble. In my opinion, look, I am not telling you this because you are here, but in my opinion you are the real leader, charismatic leader of the group ….😁
GIANLUCA = The others listen, look they get offended …😁
PANARIELLO = But let’s say these things !!😁
GIANLUCA = Nice tie, I like it.😁
PANARIELLO = Thank you, very kind.
GIANLUCA = Did you choose it?
PANARIELLO = I chose it myself, there were three or four and I chose this one, really decided. I’m glad you like it. In short, I like talking to you, because talking to you is like talking to the whole group, I know, you are the one who has the decision-making power 😁
However the question I wanted to ask you … has there ever been a moment when Piero and Ignazio have embarrassed you, sometimes?
GIANLUCA = Every day, it’s a sacrifice, I have to take them with me, you can’t understand ….😁
PANARIELLO = I know, what can you do?
GIANLUCA = Look, being in the middle of two Sicilians ….. Sicilians are strong, they have a unique personality and charisma.
PANARIELLO = They are of character.
GIANLUCA = They are strong, and I love them very much! ❤
PANARIELLO = They are a little crazy. Is there any of the two who, offstage, poses as a star? There are many stars who have strange claims, for example the M&M (colored chocolates) all the same …..
GIANLUCA = Ignazio lives in his world. Ignazio is an all-round artist. Piero makes me die, because every time, even if you are on the other side of the world, for example you are in Tokyo, and he orders pasta with tomato.
PANARIELLO = In Tokyo.
GIANLUCA = In Tokyo or in Russia. Once they brought him a bundle all together, which he could stick to the wall, but every time, three hours before singing, he wanted pasta with tomato.
PANARIELLO = Pasta is very difficult to find really good in the world.
GIANLUCA = But in Tokyo they eat “ramen” at least (Japanese food).
PANARIELLO = (loud sounds of electric guitars are heard) But who has invented the guitars that make a noise … (and he goes towards the partition wall), but you can’t use a flute?
GIALLINI = Bring me a flute …
PANARIELLO = Come on, play a piece of Jethro Tull. (he returns to his seat, but as he sits down, he sees that Piero is now on the sofa).
PANARIELLO = Piero Barone. Piero Barone is the undisputed leader, in my opinion, you are ….. that is, the group would not exist if you weren’t there, are you aware of this? Do you feel this responsibility of having everything in your hand? 😁
PIERO = Now, let’s not exaggerate, you are calling me a leader, but I have to call you “brave”.
PANARIELLO = Why?
PIERO = The tie, one like this I think I’ve never seen it in my life😁
PANARIELLO = (a little embarrassed) Ok, but people at home don’t care about my tie.😁
PIERO = Ok, you like it !!
PANARIELLO = Yes I like it, I personally chose it, it’s just a tie.
PIERO = Right, we don’t make a case of it.
PANARIELLO = Listen, you have sung with great international stars, you have also won everything in your career, right? There was a star who particularly moved you, there is one that you thought, “Look who I’m singing with …”
PIERO = I think the most exciting moment of our career was when we sang in front of Pope Francis in Panama.❤
It was also one of the most embarrassing moments, because they lost my luggage that day, with my suit. I got the suit back, but I had to sing in sneakers, I was hoping that the director would concentrate somewhere else ….
PANARIELLO = He cut your feet …
PIERO = Fortunately there is Ignazio who is taller than me, therefore, they either framed my feet or cut Ignazio’s face, so they preferred Ignazio’s face.
PANARIELLO = Listen, when we Italians want to sing a foreign song, for example Ob-la-dì Ob-la-da by the Beatles (he sings the refrain in English distorted by the Italian and Piero sings another refrain), we Italians sing very badly in English. 😁
PIERO = Yes, we Italians use a particular language, all of our own (for to sing in English, if we don’t know English)
PANARIELLO = Instead, when you are abroad, and you sing Italian songs, you will have your fans, people who sing with you, these songs. How do they sing? Are they able to sing them?
PIERO = The problem is not only the songs, but also our name. In South America: IL BOLO. In America IL VOLVO !! 😁 So we already have to solve the name problem.
For the songs …. I’ll give you an example: IL MONDO ….(Piero sings the refrain) “gira il mondo gira, nella GIOGIA….😁😁.” (exact is GIOIA which means joy. Giogia, a nickname sometimes also used to name the female sex)
Explain to me, dear Giorgio, what GIOGIA is?.😁
PANARIELLO = I could have an idea … (Piero laughs) … there are so many ways to call it …. Listen about GIOGIA (he means joy), I have a great desire to give you a gift.
PIERO = Thank you !!
PANARIELLO = When all this madness (virus) will end, everything that is happening around us, and we can go back to doing the show, I too, like you, all over the world ….
PIERO = We are pro-positive.
PANARIELLO = Me, at most arrival in Fucecchio (a town in Florence), while you, in all the world. I thought of giving you a gift, this travel beauty that can be convenient for you? (He bends down to take the beauty and when he gets up, the interlocutor is Giallini)
GIALLINI = Thank you.😁
PANARIELLO = What are you doing here?
GIALLINI = What, what am I doing? I’m resting the bones! Two minutes, can’t you?
PANARIELLO = It is not the place to rest the bones, it is the place where my guests are. Back then, I had Il Volo.
GIALLINI = (he looks at his watch) You had the flight (Volo – Flight), by now you have lost it ….
PANARIELLO = But now you can’t travel. Not that flight there! I don’t have an airplane flight, I had Il Volo, the Italian group, Il Volo.😁
GIALLINI = Ah, those three guys ?? But they’ve been there for a long time (in the other studio, the rock one)
PANARIELLO = How are they staying with you?
GIALLINI = Yes, they’re over there.
(Somebody to Love by Queen begins)
PANARIELLO = What infamous 😁
GIALLINI = Damn what a figure 😁
PIERO = But where are you going?
GIALLINI = So guys, how are you doing?
GIANLUCA = But you have the baritone notes.
GIALLINI = Yes, I am a baritone (as a singing tone). However great, great piece, great Queen. So you don’t just do Madam Butterfly and that kind of thing …. but there is something that didn’t convince me, to be rock you also need to have the spirit ….
GIANLUCA = We tried, it’s not our thing ….
GIALLINI = The song turned out very well, but I want to give you a test, do we want to do it?
PIERO = Go.
GIALLINI = First, to be a rock band do you have Groupies? (for us groupies it means the hard core of the fans).
IGNAZIO = Sure.
GIANLUCA = You don’t realize.
GIANNINI = Do you make any excesses? (rock bands always make excesses)
IGNAZIO = Our (fans) are called the FLIGHT CREW (YAY! they remember us ❤!!!!) I don’t know if you know English but it means …..
GIANNINI = Of course I know.
GIANLUCA = There are excesses.
GIALLINI = Are there always excesses?
PIERO = Every evening.
GIALLINI = Really ??
GIANLUCA = We can talk about it, but it remains between us.
GIALLINI = Do you have after hours, parties?
IGNAZIO = Before and after …
GIALLINI = I see you on the right track (of rock). I thought you were less knowledgeable on the subject.
GIANLUCA = Because you usually see us in a suit and tie, but…….
IGNAZIO = I don’t sit down, because I feel rock and roll. 😁
PIERO = (he is looking at the cover of the KISS album) This looks like the cover of our first CD.
GIANLUCA = (Picking up another album) Do you know that they copied this one? Do you know the original was from Elvis Presley?
GIALLINI = You don’t know who you’re talking to, my boy. I know well. 😁
GIANLUCA = Sorry I underestimated you! 😁 But don’t get mad.
GIALLINI= No, I’m not angry.
One question, what’s the most rock thing you’ve done?
GIANLUCA = You will die of envy. 😁 We will tell you a story and you will die of envy. Sit comfortably.
GIALLINI= I’m talking about rock stuff.
GIANLUCA= (says to Piero) Tell him that thing.
PIERO = We were on tour in America. Concert in Las Vegas, Guns ‘N Roses sang on our day off. I go to see Guns’ N Roses, I love it. Sing Axl Rose and finally on the Paradise City song, Axl Rose, throws the microphone, the one with the red sponge cover. Who takes it? Me.
GIALLINI = You?
PIERO = What was I supposed to do? Everyone wanted it, all the people on me, but the microphone was mine, what do I do? I had baggy pants, I put the microphone inside in here. There was a tall person with me, luckily Alessio Guerrieri (tour technician) whom I greet, hello Alessio, he takes me on his shoulders and tells me … “let’s go, let’s run away”. We arrive at the hotel and I tell them (Ignazio and Gianluca). They are incredulous, but I have the microphone.
GIALLINI = You have Axl Rose’s microphone at your home.
PIERO = Yes, but I won’t let you touch it because I put it in my pants.
GIALLINI = You still have the microphone with a red sponge.
PIERO = I can’t give it away, of course. 😁
GIANLUCA = Maybe the Groupies would appreciate it. 😁
IGNAZIO = If you want to hear something rock, I can do Axl Tulipan. (he is making a play on words: Axl Rose and Axl Tulip, two flower names)
GIALLINI = Please everyone away !! (Ignazio plays an excerpt from Back in Black by AC/DC on the electric guitar)
GIALLINI = Guys, applause.
You answered me a little like that about rock, but I thought worse.
GIANLUCA = Did we surprise you?
GIALLINI = A lot
IGNAZIO = You must know that I train with AC-DC songs, I like them a lot.
GIALLINI = Really? I wanted to tell you, for the moment I give you the “pink sheet” (qualification) for the “driving license”, we have to wait for the next edition of the program, which Giorgio and I will never do.😁 Guys I tell you, you are truly humble, and this does you honor, and you are great.❤
Ladies and gentlemen: IL VOLO.
Well, I hope you have understood everything about the translation.
What can I say, Ignazio remembered Flight Crew, he remembered us, and it’s not the first time, what a joy !!
Nice presentation of everyone on the sofa and I hope you understand the Italian humor.
Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca appeared very relaxed and at ease.
Ignazio’s rock soul is very pleasant and Queen’s songs are certainly among the most suitable for them.
Once again they have shown that they can do anything, their ability ranges from classic to pop to rock and always well performed.
We saw them in a slightly unusual guise, but always an excellent one.
You liked them?
A few more screen shots of the evening for which we thank Il Volo Sicilia!
Yesterday afternoon Gianluca posted this short message:
This evening we will celebrate 25 years of PORTA A PORTA and there will be a surprise for you.
The whole fanbase immediately repeated the message, but what was it about?
Perhaps a small old video re-proposed by Porta a Porta.
For too long we have not seen Il Volo guest at Porta a Porta, we really liked the old episodes where a lot of space had been given to Il Volo.
So this was a big surprise !!
The wait was long, the short connection with Il Volo took place immediately after midnight.
Here is the video !!
G+P+I= Hi Bruno.
P = Happy birthday. We could not miss this important anniversary.
I = It’s already 25 years of Porta a Porta, we are a little like peers.
G = Yes, we can say that we are Bruno’s age.
P = But peers of what?
I = Our age together makes Bruno’s age.
G = Peers of the program.
I = Yes, of course. Together with you we have had wonderful experiences, like the one in New York. (short video of Il Volo in New York with Bruno Vespa)
I = The walk in Central Park.
G = Dinner with Woody Allen.
I = But the best thing was seeing you come down from the hotel room in overalls.
P = For jogging.
G = We can say we took a nice jog in Central Park with Bruno Vespa.
I = Now we are in the studio, we are working.
G = We are preparing a very beautiful thing which is a tribute to maestro Ennio Morricone.
P = Guys, what do you say if we move to the recording studio?
G = Exactly, we move to the recording studio, because we want to give you a small taste of what this musical project will be, precisely the tribute to the great master Morricone, with all his melodies sung and we leave you a small taste of a medley of C’ERA UNA VOLTA IN AMERICA and MALENA, a song called E PIÙ TI PENSO.
Besides Bruno, you are already invited to our concert on June 5th in Piazza San Pietro. (the performance of the song begins, with piano accompaniment)
I = The master Claudio Vignali
P = Bruno we promise that we will be present at the 50th anniversary of Porta a Porta.
G = A big hug Bruno, a greeting to everyone.
G + I + P = Ciao, ciao.
It was short but intense.
A beautiful and intimate performance of E PIÙ TI PENSO, and the confirmation that Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca are preparing everything for the event of early June, although there are no total certainties, but they are practicing the songs, preparing the voices and as always they will surprise us.
In Italy, February is considered the month of Sanremo.
This year, due to the pandemic, Sanremo will be there, but it has been scheduled for early March, and will also be without an audience.
It is thanks to Sanremo that I really got to know and started followingIl Volo.
But how many times have Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio been in Sanremo on the Ariston stage?
In reality, really many times, because the filming of TI LASCIO UNA CANZONE, took place right at the Ariston Theater, but now, we are talking only about Sanremo.
In 2010, the running of the Sanremo festival was entrusted to Antonella Clerici.
As we all know, Antonella has always been proud of her three little tenors. That year in Sanremo there will be Queen Rania of Jordan and Antonella decides to pay homage to the Queen, with a beautiful little show of her three little tenors.
What little kids, but what big voices. So sweet, close to Queen Rania of Jordan and Antonella.
They still had a long way to go and a lot of study to face.
2015 is the year of triumph.A more than deserved victory and popularity also in Italy, where they were not so well known.
Here are our guys on the Sanremo red carpet, before the singing competitions begin.
The first evening was the consecration.
An explosion of joy and skill, welcomed the audience who was enchanted !!
Gianluca’s tears of emotion … It was February 11, the day of his twentieth birthday !!
It was the beginning of their worldwide adventure.
In the second evening, the evening dedicated to covers, Il Volo performed ANCORA.
Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio have decided to present themselves as competitors again.
The race was beautiful, but the quality jury deliberately gave them very low, undeserved votes and then there was the scandal of the journalists who said bad words about Il Volo and recommended not to vote them so as not to let them win again.
Here they are upon their arrival in Sanremo, on the red carpet.
Instead their song MUSICA CHE RESTA was very popular with the audience and once again showed them so much love.
And then the night they sang with Alessandro Quartaand his fantastic violin. Very good, all the audience standing, lots of applause …. and the critics gave them the lowest rating …. incredible.
Despite all the low grades, Il Volo is lovingly supported by the home crowd and so in the end it comes third.
It was a nice roundup of appearances, but I’m sure there will be other opportunities to see Il Volo in Sanremo, both as guests and as competitors, because they can do it and because they certainly have the support of all of us- their fans who love them so much.
Last night I was thinking about where we are in this story. We have become an important part of the story. In the beginning we were asked to open our minds and follow a story which to many of us made no sense at all. Many of you who follow my Il Volo stories, wrote to me to ask, “What is this about?” Sometimes I think that you think I know more than I do. I only know what you know. I have no inside information!
Recently my messages have changed. Many of you are now weighing in on the stories. After Coco was left at the aquarium, and the butterflies reappeared, you stormed my messenger to say, “I think the Butterflies will rescue Coco!” Good for you!
So now we are asked if the post should remain in Black and White or Color! Again, you began to weigh in. Many of you said, you liked the black and white and, many said there is room for color.
Before we go on, other things have happened this past week which we need to address.
We have a new character. Her name is Kalsa. What does this character have to do with the story? I’m not sure where Fabio and Ignazio are going with this but, I can tell you there are two things I know about Kalsa that do contribute to the story. But, of course, I’m not going to tell you what that is. I’m leaving that to the guys to tell you. But what I will tell you about the Kalsa story is this is a story about traditions. What started out as a mythical character (the Moor’s head) wound up being the symbol of Sicily.
We know the ultimate goal of BOIN is to make us feel like we are part of the project. So how do we fit into the new story? Traditions!
Traditions are what form our good values.
Traditions are important because they keep us in touch with our past and by sharing them keep us closer to our families and friends. Everything Ignazio and Fabio have done so far points to Good Values!
We also saw the BOIN watch and BOIN hat this week. First off, baby Noah looked adorable in his BOIN hat.
And I assume the watch is a Smart Watch. I have a Smart Watch. Let me say it is smarter than me! But what was revealed to us when we saw the watch? In the background of the picture, we saw a color poster with BOIN objects on it.
So that brings us back to the question: “Black and White or Color?”
To me Black and White is their signature. Their logo is in Black and White. I find it very intriguing and mysterious. You see the Black and White and there is no need to say who or what is this, we automatically know we have a new post from BOIN. Having said that, a splash of color couldn’t hurt. Perhaps slowly color will come into the project and it will reveal the end result, the project we’ve all been following for almost a month.
Until now, the figurative characters have added the needed color to the story but, in my opinion, Ignazio and Fabio, maybe it is time to add a splash of color here and there. Unleash the Color let us begin to see the future!
To see if BOIN will continue in Black and White or if the guys will Unleash the Color follow Ignazio and Fabio on their journey. Bring your friends along! FOLLOW @boincollection
