GOSSIP: “L’ AMORE SI MUOVE” !!! by Daniela

I believe that we have all seen the photos that portray Piero and Gianluca with two girls who seem to have captured their hearts.

We are, of course, talking about gossip, but because the photos have appeared in the newspapers and even on all the Facebook pages, we also talk here, treating the news, just as a gossip.

And here are the photos of Piero.

Gossip 01

Let’s start by saying that the girl is called Valentina Allegri and she is 23 years old.

She is the daughter of Max Allegri, the well-known football coach of Juventus.

In the picture we can clearly see Piero, Valentina hugging her father.

Behind them we see Ambra Angiolini, who is an actress and showgirl, currently a partner of Valentina’s father. Before that she was Francesco Renga’s wife – he wrote L’AMORE SI MUOVE.

It seems that the photo was taken at the end of Sunday lunch, where the family meets.

Valentina took the opportunity to present Piero to her father.

Gossip 02

Rumors, they say that the two met at the end of July, so it’s a very recent thing.

Valentina studies Modern Literature at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan, and this photo was posted today by Piero.

Gossip 03

As you understand, this statue is on the internal scale of the university, so Piero sends us clear signs.

Gossip 04

This video was posted by Valentina. Evidently Piero is trying to educate, Brioche, Valentina’s dog.

But ….. I remember badly or Piero was allergic to any type of animal hair ???

What love makes us do !!

And here’s a last photo of the blonde Valentina, definitely a beautiful girl.

Gossip 05

Of the new romance of Gianluca, for the moment there are few things to unveil. Because from very little we learned of this new story, that is since they were seen together in Taormina for the GDS Show a few days ago, even if it seems like they’ve been dating for more time, or at least that’s what the rumors say.

Gossip 06

Her name is Francesca. She is from Roseto degli Abruzzi, the same area of Italy as Gianluca.

As you all may have noticed, there is a strong resemblance to Martina, or at least the characteristic traits are similar.

Gossip 07

Here Francesca is near Gianluca, during a dinner in Taormina with friends. Also present is Ignazio.

Gossip 08

Really a beautiful girl.

Gossip 09

Here is a journalistic report on their love story, paparazzi in Taormina.

Gossip 10

Both are two beautiful girls, on the other hand Gianluca and Piero are also two handsome guys. For my part, I am happy to see them involved in a love story. This is the most beautiful age, where feelings make fun of the heart.

Their happiness and our happiness, and time will tell us what we are talking about.

TAORMINA : GDS SHOW by Daniela

It all started in July, while IL VOLO was in Taormina for the Notte Magica 2018 concert.

Salvo La Rosa, is a great friend and admirer of the boys, who has always supported and presented them, on various occasions in Sicily.

GDS 01

“In July, in front of a granita (al Bambar) I invited Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca to the GDS SHOW on September 15th in Taormina.

With generosity, IL VOLO, will participate in this magical evening.

The proceeds will be donated to charity.”

GDS 02

Then, even our friend Dave Monaco, (remember, the first singer taken under the new label of Torpedine and IL VOLO), lets us know that he will be present at the evening, with this message:

“Good morning friends, I am glad to tell you that I will be taking part in the GDS Show! It will be a great honor to share the stage with many artists and my friends of Il Volo, thank you very much to Salvo La Rosa for the invitation!

The entire proceeds of the evening will be donated to charity associations, so in addition to enjoying a great show, your participation will be a work of good.

I wait for you!”

GDS 03

The boys have returned to Taormina (I think with great pleasure). Here they are during the rehearsals of the show, together with the presenter of the evening, Salvo La Rosa.

Missing Piero, ultimately skipped the rehearsals, the scoundrel!

GDS 04

Piero has arrived!!

GDS 05

Here we are at the evening, the show started, in the splendid setting of the Greek Theater.

GDS 06

Thanks to our Deborah Georgini Beaupre, we have some very beautiful photos and videos.

Good thing that Deborah was able, at the last moment to find a ticket for the show.

The guys sang three songs: they started with L’AMORE SI MUOVE.

During the presentation, Salvo la Rosa, says that when the boys were in Taormina in July, he joined them and asked them if they would participate in the show and they immediately said yes!

Immediately after, they sang the splendid CARUSO.

In the interview after the songs, Salvo la Rosa asks the boys if they have a particular memory to tell. In fact, he himself, remembers when there was the first Italian concert, after the great success they had abroad and their first Italian concert was held here in Taormina.

Piero says it was frustrating for them, to be so successful abroad and not to sing in their country.

Salvo La Rosa remembers having hosted in one of his programs the guys from IL VOLO who said “We want to sing at home”.

Ignazio intervenes to point out joking, that they sing at home in the shower, but they wanted to sing in Italy.

Salvo goes on to say that Taormina has brought them luck.

Gianluca continues by saying that Taormina is now a fixed stop.

Piero adds that there are many friends, that Gianluca is Sicilian by adoption, that Ignazio taught Gianluca to speak Sicilian.

Gianluca pronounces two or three words in Sicilian and everyone laughs.

Salvo asks them for what they are preparing. Piero answers that they are working on a new album, because next year will be 10 years of their career.

Salvo says they were children, but success has been steady and growing.

Gianluca says that there is still a lot that they have to show and that they will be ready to surprise the public and their fans who have been following them for many years.

Salvo says that every time they post a photo of the guys or a video of them on social media it’s a success. He says that in an evening where love is celebrated, you stay and sing your GRANDE AMORE.

The beautiful GRANDE AMORE begins and as usual the audience sings with them.

This show has been recorded and will be streamed on September 27th at 9:30 pm Italian time at this link: www.gds.it, so those of you want to see, connect.

 Some photos from Deborah:

But the most beautiful pictures Deborah made them in the afternoon, naturally in front of the Bambar.

GDS 11

Two out of three, Deborah, I think you can be satisfied, you also attended the show, we say you were in the right place at the right time. I’m very happy for you!!!

What a thrill, and then, as usual, Taormina offers a magnificent scenery, and the guys feel they are “at home”, so many people were there for them, and the guys, as usual, did not betray their fans’ expectations.

Thank you guys!!

LOVE DECLINED IN ITS VARIOUS FACETS – by Patrizia

As promised, here is the review of the film UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE by our PATRIZIA CIAVA, which I translate with great pleasure for you – Daniela.

Love 01

“UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE”: LOVE DECLINED IN ITS VARIOUS FACETS

The debut on the big screen of the trio ll Volo in the film Un Amore Così Grande in the role of young mentors who discover the natural talent of a young unknown, their age, and help him to achieve success.

As announced by the title, love, declined in its various forms, is the motive that permeates the whole story of “Un Amore Così Grande”, the debut feature of the television director Cristian de Mattheis, which will be released in cinemas on September 20, produced by Federica Andreoli, who also edited the subject, and Michele Calì.

Not only the romantic love between the two young protagonists, interpreted by Giuseppe Maggio and Francesca Loy, but also that between parents and children, between teacher and pupil, between friends, and above all the love for music that is the real common thread and the bond that unites all the characters in the film in a symbolic embrace.

Love 02

And to unite them is the passion for a genre generally considered elite, the lyric, which here is presented as an art form accessible to everyone, even to constitute the exercise of a street karaoke in which anyone can try, proposed by young people for young people.

In this lies the true peculiarity of the film that sees in Il Volo’s participation its raison d’etre. As repeatedly explained by the three members of the trio, in fact, the “Notte Magica” tour, whose poster is known from the beginning of the film, was born with the intention of bringing young people to the lyric as only “three boys, of twenty years can do”, in an ideal continuation of the project launched by Pavarotti to bring the Opera “outside the theaters” and make it accessible to the general public.

The presence of the three young singers, the two tenors Piero Barone and Ignazio Boschetto and the baritone Gianluca Ginoble, who impersonate themselves, is not really a simple cameo, but offers the key to the film in which they play the role of young mentors in able to understand talent and to encourage and accompany the protagonist to the success he deserves.

Love 03

Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet, where the film is set, is therefore the ideal setting as it is at the same time the city of love par excellence and temple of opera with its Arena.

The plot, however, also returns to the city its role as a symbol of contrasting love, of the destiny that first unites lovers and then tries to divide them. Love for music proves to be the only driving force able to transform suffering into passion and creativity.

A love story, therefore, that explores the different facets and whose meaning is contained in the title that is also that of one of the most beautiful songs of the Italian musical tradition, “Un Amore Così Grande”, composed by the maestro Guido Maria Ferilli , on whose notes the last scene of the film closes.

MUSIC IS LIKE LIFE: UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE by Daniela

Un Amore 01

“MUSIC IS LIKE LIFE, IT CAN BE DONE IN ONE WAY, TOGETHER.”

Music makes you happy.

It brings emotions to you and makes every person feel part of something bigger, like a symphony.

After announcing it a long time ago, and after a long wait, on September 12th the premiere of the film UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE  was held in Rome. The film will be in Italian cinemas from 20 September.

At the premiere were the producers director and actors. IL VOLO was represented by Michele Torpedine.

Un Amore 02

Here is an article dedicated to the film which I will summarize for you.

ANSI article – Click here

THE PLOT

Once upon a time there were the musical films, the director De Mattheis signs with UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE, a lyrical music film.

The story revolves around Vladimir, called Vlad, a young talent of opera singing, who at the death of his mother, a former soprano with whom he lived in St. Petersburg, came to Verona to look for his father, who had abandoned them when he was a child. To support himself, Vlad starts performing as a street singer. That’s how he meets the high-bourgeois Veronica with whom he is immediately struck by lightning.

In the meantime, by chance, the director of IL VOLO hears him singing and offers him a great opportunity. Life for Vladimir seems at a turning point, but many traumas and twists still await him …..

IL VOLO

Michele Calì is the producer of the film to explain how their involvement was born: “We started from the love story, but we needed a link to reach the public, especially the younger one.

It was natural to turn to Il Volo, which only in Italy has a huge following, the ‘volovers’ are more than 400 thousand. We have made them an integral part of the story, and they have become an added value to the film.

De Mattheis loved the possibility of telling the simplicity of a love story that recalled those of opera.

How was it to work with Il Volo? “We thought to transmit mainly what they are in life, here they represent the ‘mentors’ of the hero, simply being themselves.”

Federica Andreoli, the producer of the film, wrote these words:

“A big thank you goes to all the Volovers and Il Volo fans, for the help they are giving me in these weeks to promote UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE … Thank you for what you are doing and for the love and interest you are showing for this movie. I will never cease to thank all the Il Volo fans enough for their precious collaboration …. you are fantastic.”

Here is an article from the premiere entitled UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDEcrowd at the Adriano (the cinema) IL VOLO and the debut on the big screen.

Un Amore 13

The day after the premiere, a clip from the film was also broadcast on the RAI2 news program.

At the beginning of the month of August, this release appeared on the facebook page of IL VOLO:

We learn from the production of UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE and as disclosed by some media that the film will be screened in cinemas from next September this year and soon in the Mediaset channels. We take this opportunity to congratulate the producer Michele Calì, the director De Mattheis and the good actors with whom we had the pleasure of working on the set for our brief participation in the story of the story. On this occasion we think it is right to point out that our presence in the script is reduced only to a couple of scenes not to create false expectations from the public or incorrect communications that could confuse us with the real protagonists of the film that instead used to this role of other characters, professional actors.

We therefore thank the production for giving us the opportunity to perform in this musical “cameo” and wish everyone a well deserved success.

After this release, I immediately thought that Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, would not have been at the premiere, and in fact, the boys, last night were not there, but, they have entrusted to three short videos projected before the film, their best wishes.

Here they are.

 

P= Best wishes to the film UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE, unfortunately for appointments previously fixed, we will not be there with you.

We wanted to thank you for this wonderful adventure, experience, and I wanted to give you a big “good luck”, see you soon.

G= Hello everyone, I want to make a big “good luck” to the film UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE, and thank everyone, starting from directing, producers and actors, who have given us the opportunity to be part of this beautiful project.

See you soon, a hug.

I= Hello to all the friends of UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE, we regret not being part of the premiere of the film, it was a wonderful experience, I know that I will become a great actor one day ….. I joke.

A big hug to everyone and a “good luck”, bye.

 

But at the premiere, and on the red carpet, who was there of our knowledge:

Un Amore 14

But they are our dear MAURA PUCCI and PATRIZIA CIAVA, congratulations volovers, you are our nice and beautiful representatives!!

Un Amore 15

And here’s what Maura wrote in the aftermath of the premiere !!

Notice to “sailors”, in particular those interested in IL VOLO. I saw the movie UN AMORE COSÌ GRANDE and doing a review is not my job. But I can tell you that it is a love story with a happy ending, like those of other times: without violence, without sex and without vulgarity, but with lots of music and breathtaking images of the beautiful Verona.

I’m here to talk about the participation of our guys and I do not do it at the request of production, for which this “sorti” will be a, I hope, pleasant surprise, nor to win the benevolence, which I presume that I do not need it, nor for gratitude for consideration in my regard. I do it for you. Do not be fooled by the clip of a few seconds that Federica Andreoli wanted to give us as an anticipation. Neither from the announcement of the site of Il Volo, aimed at minimizing their stage presence. Cameo? …. Not even for idea, it is not a cameo. According to the definition of the term. It is instead a scenic presence, remarkable and substantial. We see them and hear them sing in a dimension never seen, thanks to the huge screen, It seems to be able to touch them, other than front row seats in the concerts, other than screens at the sides of the stage! And in the same way we see them and hear them recite, absolute novelty, spontaneous, natural, credible. It seemed to me to identify in their parts a different vein, certainly established by the script. Piero always serious, Ignazio a bit ‘serious and somewhat’ playful , and Gian a bit ‘serious and a bit’ angry. If I think that the “hunger” that we have of them leads us to watch any broadcast even squalid and ridiculous that you talk about it or show us, then for intellectual honesty, I have to tell you: go and see this film which is for all just what it takes: a breath of oxygen! (quote “Ricomincio dalle tre” by Michele Torpedine 😁😁)

And Michele Torpedine answered her like this:

Mick Torp = A spokesperson like you in politics … you would have won anyone!

Un Amore 16

I do not know about you, but all these innovations, especially what Maura wrote, made me want to see this film, certainly for me the wait will not be long, the next week will be in many Italian cinemas, but I think the wait for you will be longer.

Meanwhile, we are waiting for a complete and professional review that surely Patrizia will do for all of us ….. do not make us wait too much Patrizia !!

Watch Out Montepagano, Gian is on the Road!!

Yes, our youngest Il Volo guy, has finally attained his last rite of passage into official adulthood!

Today, he got his driver’s license.  No more riding around with mom and dad, he can now cruise the highways and byways of Italy, along with Ignazio and Piero!

Congratulations, amico mio!  Take it easy out there and always wear your seatbelt. 🙂

And of course if you are not driving your car, you are out riding the waves of the beautiful Adriatic.   Thanks for these gorgeous pictures and to Rock me il volo on Instagram for posting as well.

GOSSIP GOSSIP : ARE THE GUYS FROM IL VOLO SINGLE? by Daniela

On POMERIGGIO 5, a known gossip TV program, today there was a video that talked about IL VOLO.Gossip 01

This transmission is very popular in Italy, and the guys have also been guests in the studio. This time it’s just a video and it’s gossip, about any new girls of Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero.

https://www.mediasetplay.mediaset.it/video/pomeriggiocinque/aaa-cercasi-grande-amore_F309209201003C04

So, from whom do we start talking today? Let’s start with Il VOLO?

From my friends at IL VOLO.

Those are full of females.

Let’s start like this.

Women from all over the world, come forward . . . the three guys from IL VOLO, are single!

It was a long time since this astral coincidence has occurred, but at this moment, it seems that Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero, are going through a phase of total sentimental freedom.

To prove it, the photos, taken during a holiday in Taormina, where the three entertain themselves, with as many young maidens.

And to say, that the latest news in our possession, both Gianluca, and Ignazio, seemed happily engaged, the first with Martina, with whom he had been a couple for two years, and the second with Alessandra, his historic girlfriend, with whom he was said, it would soon be married.

Instead, here they are, all single, and all at sea, ready to make new friends and new conquests.

Gianluca, immediately finds his place in the pool, next to a prosperous girl with dark and smooth hair, with whom he talks while relaxing in the water.

Piero, the only single for the longest time, with the bandana on his head, as he wants the fashion of the moment, is ready to go on the attack of a nice blonde.

While Ignazio, at the water, prefers the tennis court, always in good company, of a young and beautiful girl with slender legs, and he seems particularly interested.

In short, the three tenors, they enjoy flying, from flower to flower, although, of course, they are always looking for the GRANDE AMORE !!!

Gossip 02

Honestly, with all that can be said about our boys, talking about their talents or their concerts, these TV shows take them into consideration only to talk about gossip ……. it is also true that, among their talents , there is also beauty and youth, so these videos of gossip are justified, but ….. take them with the tongs, these news, they are never founded !!!!

Daniela

 Mollysianna’s photos , thank you!

PIERO, IGNAZIO AND GIANLUCA AND POSITIVE MESSAGES by Daniela

Positive 01

A few days ago, during the presence at the Festival Show in Trieste, the boys took a picture, while they were holding a t-shirt with messages written against those who drive and use the phone.

Perhaps some of you have not paid particular attention to this picture, which I now propose to you.

The GUIDE E BASTA advertising campaign is promoted in Italy in order to sensitize drivers, especially young people, to the use and abuse and risks of using a mobile phone while driving a vehicle.

Positive 02

Using a mobile phone while driving is one of the main causes of serious car accidents.

It is enough to look away even a moment from the road to lose control of the vehicle and cause a car accident with unimaginable consequences.

For this reason, the boys have lent their image, in this picture above.

They also shot this video.

I = Hi guys, we are IL VOLO, everyone’s life is very important, so …..

P = ….. of course we are so much in the car, so when we want to stay on the phone, let’s let someone else drive ….

G = …… then guide and stop mobile

Positive 03

I find it extremely positive that the boys, lend their image to messages of this kind.

In addition, they often adhere to events with a charitable purpose, such as the concert in which they will participate in a few days.

Good guys, come on like this, I’m proud of you.
