Something is Happening by Daniela

The guys have just returned to Bologna after the holidays with their families, that they are posted some photos that send all the fans into raptures.

Here are the pictures, posted by the official website of IL VOLO.

Something 01

Something 02

O MY GOD, the guys are in the recording room!

What are starting to affect the new record for the decennial (10 year anniversary)??

It would be really beautiful!!!

But the most beautiful picture is undoubtedly this.

Something 03

My friend Valeria, who you already know very well, made a long comment about this photo, which I’m now going to translate.

I stayed a few minutes to admire this photo. All the photos of the boys, both together and individually, are beautiful, it’s indisputable, but there are some photos that through the image, are particularly eloquent, communicate a meaning so meaningful that lead us to stop and reflect. In this photo, there is not IL VOLO, but Il Volomusic, there are not only the three guys with the wonderful voice, beautiful, lively and funny that we are used to seeing on the stages of the whole world, but there is “team”, the formidable team that has produced dozens of masterpieces for us, masterpieces that we all have in our ears, in our minds, our hearts.

A photo that lends itself to different levels of reading, there is the plan of the “group”, the three guys sitting next to each other, forming a circle of work, to which many other people participate, but which is true and productive at the highest level only when they are three, to study, to agree songs, rhythms, assonances, virtuosity!

Then there is the plan of friendship, a strong friendship, which goes beyond everything and everyone, the three of them who speak, listen and understand each other, strong in a life together, strong in suffering, in toil, of sorrows, but also of joys and triumphs together!

Finally there is the plan of simplicity and naturalness, three boys dressed in some way, smiling at each other, and in this way they smile to life and to the future.

Come on guys, we are thousands who expect great things from you, this image in your place of work makes us foretaste a new season of great music, “your” music, which as always will enlarge our hearts!

 

Something 04

What to say, Valeria expresses so well the things we all feel.

I only know that when I saw this beautiful picture, I was invaded by a really great emotion, the guys are in the recording room, something is happening …….. and see them, so, as neighbors, FRIENDS . . . it fills my heart with so many beautiful and positive things.

Come on guys, let us be amazed, we are waiting for you and we will support you in your projects.

IL VOLO TO PREMIO AGNES by Daniela

On June 23rd, the guys took part in the PREMIO BIAGIO AGNES event which took place in the beautiful BORGO MARINA GRANDE, a seaside village in Sorrento.

This award celebrates 10 years of activity and is given to journalists who uphold the dignity and function of journalism.

IL VOLO PBA 01

The award ceremony was attended by several guests with performances, and among these, IL VOLO.

Here are the guys during the rehearsals, Gianluca is missing because he could not get to the tests in time, because of the traffic.

How wonderful, I cannot think of a better song than CARUSO to be performed in the Neapolitan Gulf.

Some photos from those lucky enough to meet the guys.

Sorrento, dinner at Marina Grande for IL VOLO: fans in delirium

They had already been in Marina Grande at the beginning of their career, when they had not yet become one of the most popular Italian music groups in their homeland and in the world. So, yesterday evening, the three members of “Il Volo” took advantage of the final ceremony of the Agnes Prize to visit again the seaside village of Sorrento and the restaurant “Da Emilia”, an authentic temple of gastronomy on the Amalfi Coast. And it was enough for the fans, including the staff of the club, to recognize them and go into delirium.

IL VOLO PBA 13

Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble were guests of the final evening of the Prize which, recorded last night in Marina Grande, will be broadcast on RAI Uno on the second evening of Wednesday. Together with them other stars of Italian music such as Ermal Meta and Dodi Battaglia, without forgetting the team of dance masters of the TV show “Dancing with the Stars”. The recording of the TV program has offered the trio, winner of the Sanremo Festival and third place at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015, the chance to return to one of the symbolic places of Sorrento and the Coast: Marina Grande, also famous for hosting the filming of a cult film like “Pane, amore e …” by Dino Risi.

IL VOLO PBA 14

And just as Vittorio De Sica and Sophia Loren used to play in the film dating back to 1955, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca enjoyed a moment of relaxation in the trattoria “Da Emilia”. For them dinner based fried anchovies and marinades, grilled fish and tomatoes “crowned” in the end, by a regal lemon delight. As soon as they entered the club, where they had already been in the past with their respective families and then on the occasion of the Caruso Prize, the two tenors and the baritone aroused the enthusiasm of the fans seated at the table as well as the local staff. Including Irene Cacace, the queen of local cuisine and historical memory of the village of Marina Grande, with which they were immediately photographed.

IL VOLO PBA 15

And then, it comes midnight and need to celebrate Piero.

BEST WISHES PIERO !!!!

IL VOLO PBA 16IL VOLO PBA 17

What to say, must have been a fantastic evening for those who could be present.

The guys were impeccable, elegant, and as always very good, and the Neapolitan public reacted enthusiastically.

Too bad not to be there, what do you say?

IL VOLO: PENUMBRAS by Daniela

Perhaps not everyone knows that in February of this year IL VOLO recorded a tribute record to SANDRO.

SANDRO is an Argentine singer who won a Latin Grammy honoring his career and is also known as SANDRO DE AMERICA. Unfortunately, it’s been 10 years since Sandro is gone.

One of his successes, PENUMBRAS was sung in duet with Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio.

I would say it’s a beautiful and very sweet song

Beautiful voices, begins Gianluca, then Sandro then Piero and Ignazio.

It is a very poignant song.

Here is a photo of Sandro De America.

Sandro De America

Here are the words of the song.

PENUMBRAS

The night was lost in your hair
The moon attaches to your skin
And the sea felt jealous
And he wanted to be in your eyes too

Your dangerous, sensual mouth
Your hands are sweetness
Your fatal breath, slow fire
That burn my anxieties and my heart

Tenderness that rushed hurry
He caresses that love offers
The whims were saying very slowly
Between the darkness of a soft interior

I love you and nothing matters anymore
Life dictated it this way
If you want, I’ll give you the world
But do not ask me not to love you like that

If you want, I’ll give you the world
But do not ask me not to love you like that
This does not love you like that
This does not love you like that

                                       ***************

And that’s why I told you about this song, because last week it was ranked in Radio Vox Top 20, in place #11, while Noche Sin Dia is at #19.

Vox Top 20

So, do you like this song?

Have you already heard it?

I await your opinions.

The Charm of the Voices of IL VOLO by Daniela

Some time ago I saw this video on YouTube.

It is a review on the way to sing and on the voices of PIERO, IGNAZIO and GIANLUCA.

IL VOLO tuxedo

He is a Brazilian YouTuber and singing teacher, MARCIO GUERRA, and it is wonderful to hear his words and see, from his facial expressions, how much he loves IL VOLO.

To understand well, the meaning of the things that he says, you have to read the translation and then look at the video several times, to notice from his face, how much he is pleased to listen to our boys.

I translate for you.

Hi Friends, I’m Marcio Guerra, welcome to another video of this channel.

How are you? I feel good.

Today Marcio speaks of IL VOLO.

I read their story a little, they met in a talent program. A program like The Voice, American Idol, XFactor, but in an Italian program.

And it is this kind of emotion that these guys have caused in people.

And see how things are, it was through a television program, on a vocal competition, that they, they met and created IL VOLO.

I think they had three names, the first was THE TRIO, then IL TRIO and finally IL VOLO.

I think their strength is this: the union with the incredible Italian popular song, together with the largest singing school, the Italian school.

Of course we can not deny that today we have so many didactic segments on the voice, so many techniques, so many methods, on the voice, all over the world, and many work well.

But the cradle of the voice, the cradle of the song sung, has always been Italy.

I ask you for attention now, and I ask you to observe the lack of effort that these guys make to sing, and you will see, that there is no effort in breathing, there is no effort in the way of singing notes, there is no effort to make the treble, everything is relaxed, everything is breathed properly, take air properly, all things that I have already said in other videos, note the correct form of singing this kind of music, see the location of each vowel.

This is nothing but a practical lesson of singing, of him who, every day, he practices singing exercises, and incorporates techniques.

He will sing like that.

I want to do a parallel now, between the lyrical singing school and the classical song school.

I remember, I’ve always heard the same thing, and maybe you’ve heard it too – “If you study classical music, you can do any kind of music”.

I think the same thing about the traditional lyrical singing school as well.

If you can do the vocalizations, if you can study and learn in the school of opera singing, I believe that then, you can sing anything, you just have to adapt.

So in this my channel, I wanted to pay homage to these extraordinary voices !!!

Thank you so much for watching this video: Marcio.

IL VOLO blue suits

Every time I see this video, I feel the same emotions as Marcio, while describing the way of singing by Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca.

Do you have the same effect?

Tell me your impressions.

A STATUE FOR IL VOLO ???? by Daniela

This interesting article published by Optimagazine, appeared a few days ago:

On arrival the statues of the winners of the Sanremo Festival from 1951 to 2018

Sixty-eight new statues scattered around the town of Sanremo: this is the project of the Municipality!

Ariston

Wow, davvero interessante, ed ecco la traduzione dell’intero articolo. (Wow, really interesting, and here’s the translation of the whole article.)

And if by mistake we turned the corner of a street and we were faced with some of the winners of the Sanremo Festival? If you live in Sanremo it could become a routine!

In fact, a project is underway that aims to build the statues of the protagonists and the winners of the Sanremo Festival. The statue of Mike Bongiorno, located in Via Escoffier, is present since 2013 and is one of the many attractions in the Ligurian town during the period of the Sanremo kermesse. It is probable, therefore, that soon the statue of Mike will no longer be the only one in the city center!

IL VOLO San Remo Trophy

The idea of ​​the municipality is part of the projects of promotion and boost to tourism in the city. The Municipality of Sanremo is studying a project together with the organizers of the Global Education Festival and foreign financiers, in order to realize another 77 statues: 68 which will represent the winners of the Sanremo Festival from 1951 to 2018, from Nilla Pizzi to Domenico Modugno, passing through Toto Cutugno and Massimo Ranieri until the last winners Ermal Meta and Fabrizio Moro.

The new statues will therefore represent all the winners of the Sanremo Festival of the past and of the future, so much so that in the project 9 other statues have already been included for the winners of the coming years. It is not clear whether statues will be made of other protagonists of the Festival, such as presenters who have distinguished themselves.

Grande Amore Gold Plate

Currently, in Corso Matteotti there are already the plaques of the winners of Sanremo, particularly appreciated by tourists, with the relative singers and triumphant pieces for each edition.

Now, in addition to the plaques on the Via Matteotti route, the statues will also arrive. They will be placed not only in the downtown area and in the streets adjacent to the Ariston (the theater where the Festival takes place), but could also be hosted in non-central streets, so as to involve all areas of the town, and spread out over the territory. A project that in the increasingly social era in which we live, could only benefit tourism, especially during the period of the Song Festival!

So, what do you think of this idea?

I immediately said that it seems a little exaggerated, but I admit that I would like to turn the corner during a walk, and find myself in front of Piero Ignazio and Gianluca, but I also admit that I would prefer to see them “in meat and bone “.

I am ready to hear your opinion !!!
