message 02

“It would be nice that all the Narese would share this post in the Facebook profile since our fellow citizen Piero Barone brings ever higher our beloved city of Naro.

Musica Che Resta is a song by Il Volo.

It is the song with which they participate in Sanremo 2019.

For the trio this is the second time on the stage of the Ariston, after the victory of Sanremo 2015 with Grande Amore.

The song speaks of a love and the strength it gives to move forward:

“Love hug me, I want to protect you, we are the sun on a rainy day, tonight hold me, kiss my soul, we are true music that remains.”

The text of Musica Che Resta was written, among others, by a great name of Italian rock music: Gianna Nannini.”

But in the meantime our boys are certainly not resting.

Yesterday they left for PANAMA for the WYD event.

G = Just arrived at the Amsterdam airport, ready for this flight to Panama, about 12 hours, but it will be a magnificent experience. Follow us on this journey.

P = Boys, we are in Amsterdam, we will soon board the flight to Panama, because tomorrow we will sing in front of Pope Francis, for the World Youth Day. Hello.

(the sweet Barbara is always with them)

Ignazio: Hi everyone! We’ve just wrapped up the shooting of “Musica Che Resta” video.

Gianluca: This Saturday we’ll experience a great emotion because we’ll sing a very special “Ave Maria” for Pope Francis in Panama.

Piero: As you know, when we’ll come back in Italy Sanremo Festival awaits us, to sing for the first time our new song. We can’t wait to present you, let you listen our new single “Musica Che Resta” on stage at the Ariston theater. 


In fact, two days ago the filming of the new video ended, little is known of it, but it seems to have been made in Milan.

G = We are recording the video with a great director, Mauro Russo.

MR = Come on Gianluca, you cannot say that we are recording the video, now we are not doing anything.

G = Look what kind. We are doing a masterpiece.

Gianluca is telling us about a novelty, today they will go to do a photo shoot, (or maybe a video) in the marble quarries of Massa Carrara.

G = Hello everyone, today we will have the privilege of doing a photo shoot in the marble quarries of Massa Carrara, I’ll show you how wonderful.

You got it, right ??

They are in Massa Carrara, in those caves, where Michelangelo wandered around to take the most beautiful marble, from which his fantastic statues would come out.

The road to get to the top is not very easy, and there are cliffs and someone is scared.

Michele = But where the hell are you leading me?

I = Michele (laugh)

I = Here there is someone who is afraid …. Michele, Michele (laugh) Michele, come on, we are still low, we are high at 600 meters.

Michele = No, no. There is still the precipice.

I = Michele … Michele … Micheluzzo

G = It’s very cold, a nice hot tea!

I will translate this beautiful article.

pope 01

The dream finally comes true and the three young artists of IL VOLO can sing in the presence of Pope Francis their special Ave Maria dedicated to him on the occasion of the 2017 Jubilee of Mercy. The occasion will be the World Youth Day, which will take place at Panama from 22 to 27 January next.

The three artists will perform during the vigil ceremony of the evening of January 26, in Campus San Giovanni Paolo II, where it is expected the presence of over a million people and the simultaneous transmission worldwide monovision of the event that will precede the Mass that the Pope will celebrate on Sunday 27 January.

“How to describe such a profound emotion? We are three young people – say Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio  – among millions of young people like us, with the privilege of completing a dream: to sing on such an important occasion for such a special audience, the Pope and the beautiful youth.”

pope 02

They had promised it to Bergoglio on the occasion of the private audience granted to them to donate to the Pope the first copy of their song Ave Maria Mater Misericordiaè with the intent of being able to perform it live in his presence.

This event will be an opportunity to meet young people from all over the world and live with them an experience of faith and communion.

With all of them Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio will sing a few pieces of the Latin American popular repertoire on the same occasion of the vigil. “2019 is the year of our tenth anniversary – the three artists add – and could not start better, giving us a unique opportunity that will accompany us forever in the memories of our career and our lives.”

pope 03

Here the Pope’s program:

January 23 = 9:35 hours departure from Rome, arrival in Panama 4:50 pm

January 24 = Meeting with the President of the Republic of Panama and later with the bishops and inauguration of the WYD.

January 25 = Meeting with the inmates and Via Crucis.

January 26 = Mass from the S. Maria la Antigua Cathedral.

6:30 pm Vigil with young people in the San Juan Pablo II camp.

January 27 = 8 am, Mass for WYD, visit to the Buen Samaritano house, meeting with the GMG volunteers in the Estadio Rommel Fernandez.

At 6:15 pm, return to Rome.

IL VOLO should sing at the Vigil with the youth, where they will sing songs of entertainment of the Latin American tradition and then at the Mass of the WYD where the Ave Maria Mater Misericordiaè will be sung.

pope 04

It is because of Poland that we expect this to happen, because of the missed opportunity for IL VOLO to sing in Poland at the World Youth Day 2016.

What a thrill, singing in front of the Pope and the immense audience of people.

We will be glued to the television to see this incredible event.

Ever more proud of our boys.

An evening like so many, I scroll the television programs, and find nothing interesting.

Some images capture my interest, they are on RAI 5 and the images concern Sicily.

I stop to look at this beautiful island that I had the pleasure of visiting, far and wide, last year.

It is a beautiful program that combines images with beautiful verses of poets who have described these beauties.

taormina 01

At a certain point it speaks of Taormina and of the beautiful Greek Theater, and while an “off camera” voice describes the theater, in the background a music that I recognize well : UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE, performed by IL VOLO

With amazement I’m even more interested in it, it’s a cultural program and who thought that IL VOLO was suitable to decant its beauty. 

I did not expect this surprise.

Daniela Ci, was able to reproduce the video of the moment in which there are our boys.

Look at it, it’s worth it.

I translate the background words, because they are really beautiful.


The theater of Taormina is so wonderfully situated, that there is certainly no other comparable point in the world.

Where are the people who could do such things?

Where are the men capable of building, for the fun of the crowds, buildings like this?

Those men, those of the past, had a soul and eyes, which did not resemble our own.

In their veins, with blood, flowed, something that disappeared: love and admiration for beauty.

J.W.GOETHE Trip in Italy 1787

Beyond the high rock wall that rises to peak, not far from the beach, there are two rocks, connected by a semicircle, whose shape, whatever it was by nature, has been transformed by art, so as to make it a hemicycle amphitheater for spectators.

At the foot and transversely to the stepped hemicycle, the scene was built, joining the two rocks and thus completing a gigantic work of art and nature.

If we place ourselves at the highest point, occupied by the ancient spectators, we must recognize that never, probably, a theater audience will see something similar.

taormina 02

I had the chills, looking at those images, listening to those beautiful and appropriate words of the ancient poets and listening to the sweetness of our guys’ song ……. and you?
