IT IS TIME FOR GREAT LOVES by Daniela

At the end of November 2021, this beautiful article by Donatella Aragozzini was published in the GRAND HOTEL newspaper.
The article is about the “new girls” of our young men. I have waited so far to publish it, because GRAND HOTEL is clearly a gossip newspaper, and then there were many live events to follow, but above all because I did not want to start useless gossip, since the two stories were very recent.
This interview draws many ideas from the VERISSIMO television show, in reality I believe that the whole article was written, just drawing the sentences, from that broadcast.
This is the cover of the GRAND HOTEL newspaper, as you can see Il Volo is on the cover, I translate the words written in the middle,
Gianluca and Ignazio de Il Volo announce: “We have found great love”, and Piero says: “I’m working on it.”
And here is the whole translation of the entire article.
Young, beautiful and talented, with a success that knows no bounds.
And now also with a heart full of love.
Far away, are the times of “Ti lascio una canzone”, where Gianluca Ginoble, Piero Barone, and Ignazio Boschetto made their debut little more than children, before becoming famous all over the world with the name Il Volo.
Today, the three “tenorini”, launched by Antonella Clerici’s program, are almost thirty-year-old men, who are beginning to look to a future made not only of music, and to dream of the “Grande Amore”, to quote the song with which triumphed at the Sanremo Festival in 2015.
Gianluca Ginoble is sure to have found her, who, what has never happened so far, made a relationship official, talking about it openly.
Always jealous of his privacy and reluctant to talk about his feelings, this time the singer from Abruzzo said it without fear:
“I’m engaged and really in love. I can say it publicly: I’m happy.” 
He, who “is engaged intermittently, on leasing, because he changes every two years”, as Boschetto teases him, is now very convinced of his choice, ready to bet that “in two years the girl will be the same”.
The lucky one who stole his heart is called Eleonora, like his mother, but it is her surname that tells a lot about her: Venturini Storaro, where Storaro immediately brings to mind grandfather Vittorio, one of the greatest directors of photography in world cinema, three times Oscar winner (for “Apocalypse Now”, “Reds” and “The Last Emperor”).
They have been together, “for a while”, explains Gianluca, and guilty, therefore, could have been in August, the shooting of the short film shot in the Frasassi Caves, in which the three tenors paid tribute to Ennio Morricone, singing one of his compositions most famous, “Your Love” (from the film Once upon a time in the west): on that occasion, behind the camera, there was the great “cinematographer”, as Storaro likes to call himself, flanked by his daughter Francesca, who as an architect took care of the lighting, and of her daughter Eleonora.
The words written in yellow say:
“Ginoble loves Eleonora, the granddaughter of a three-time Oscar winner.”
On the photo, the words written in white say:
“Here is the shot that Gianluca Ginoble chose to present his girlfriend: her name is Eleonora Venturini Storaro, and she is the granddaughter of Vittorio Storaro (with her in the box), the director of photography, winner of three Oscars, including the one for The Last Emperor. “
Tall, with a cascade of black hair and deep dark eyes, the young Roman also enchanted the audience of the Venice Film Festival, where she walked the red carpet, together with her grandfather and the trio, to present a preview of the short film, in a blue dress that highlighted her long model legs.
Yes, because although she graduated with full marks in Fashion and Costume Sciences at the Sapienza University of Rome, then specializing in Fashion Design at the Marangoni Institute in Milan, Eleonora also works as a model. However, it is difficult to think that beauty is the only “weapon” unlined to conquer Ginoble.
Before her, the tenor, in fact, had several other girlfriends, real or alleged, from a certain Martina, who was close to him for a couple of years, to Francesca, a girl from his country, resembling Silvia Toffanin, from Mercedes Henger, to the Neapolitan actress Pasqualina Sanna, former competitor of “La pupa e il secchione”. (honestly Mercedes Henger and Pasqualina Sanna have never been engaged to Gianluca) 
Yet, on none of them he has ever expressed himself, keeping every story to himself, while this time he wanted to share his happiness with the fans, publishing a shot with his new partner with the caption:
“And then I met you ……”, to underline how she has that something extra that makes her special in his eyes.
“Without taking anything away from the others, Eleonora is a very good girl”, Boschetto confirmed, “We are really happy that she is part of this family, because we are a big family.”
And the “family” now also includes Ana Paula Guedes, the splendid Brazilian professional from the “Dança dos Famosos” program (the carioca version of our “Dancing with the stars”), who last year literally made Ignazio lose his head. Suffice it to say that, to hold her in his arms, the Sicilian did not hesitate to face a journey of nine thousand kilometers, over twelve hours by plane.
“I’m in a moment of my life where I feel great,” he says, with an ecstatic expression on his face. “She is beautiful, but above all she is very beautiful inside, a beautiful person.”
On the photo, the words in yellow say:
“Boschetto is crazy about Ana Paula, a Brazilian dancer.”
The black words say:
“The woman who won Ignazio’s heart is blonde: her name is Ana Paula Guedes and she is a Brazilian dancing with the stars teacher. We met during the pandemic, he says.”
“We met during the pandemic: it was strange because we spent eight months exchanging messages, hearing and video calling each other, then, at the first opportunity, I went to Brazil to meet her, and from there, we got to know each other, slowly slowly . We don’t know each other one hundred percent yet, but we are very much in love.”
So much to think about tomorrow: if she replied to a fan that the wedding “one day it will happen and it will be very beautiful”, he confesses that he would not mind becoming a dad because “I always liked the idea of being a young father, I’m meeting the right person now, who knows …..”
And Piero Barone? His last official story dates back to three years ago, when he was paired with Valentina Allegri, the daughter of Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri.
But after their goodbye, he has not met anyone capable of making his heart beat in the same way.
“Love is such a strong feeling that it must be protected, many have been lucky enough to find a soul mate, I still don’t, but I know it’s out there somewhere”, he says, specifying that “feeling good and happiness is not the same thing, for now I’m fine, and I’m happy with this.”
However, it does not mean that Piero does not want to find that happiness, and to build something important with a woman, since he admits:
“I see a future with a family, with children, I believe it is the real reason for living”.
In short, for the moment he is single, but also ready to welcome him with open arms, when arrives, the ……. Great Love.
The words in the red box say:
“After having conquered the world singing love, the time has come for Gianluca and Ignazio to live it.
– I am still looking for it- says Piero, – but I know it is somewhere .“
As I have already said, at the beginning I did not want to start a lot of gossip, so I kept this article “in the drawer” and I waited for things to be made clearer by Gianluca and Ignazio.
In fact, Gianluca started posting photos with Eleonora, she followed him for the Il Volo event in Dubai, here are their beautiful photos.
Ignazio had to wait for the Christmas holidays to reach his beloved.
But, as you can see from these photos, Ignazio did not only go to Brazil, he brought with him the other two women of his life, his mother and his sister, thus confirming that his is not a simple momentary falling in love, but it is much more.
The man you see here with Ignazio and Ana Paula, posted the photo with these words of his comment:
“What a joy to celebrate the penultimate day of the year with the people we love so much! Thank you @ignazioboschetto and @aniinhaguedes for the welcome and affection of friendship! May the Lord Jesus always bless and strengthen your lives! Your love is so beautiful that it oozes and touches us all! United always !!!
Yes, don’t you get sidetracked by his clothing, this man is a priest.
But the most beautiful photos are certainly these two: how wonderful to see our two young men so happy !! ❤❤
The new year has begun and the photos of the two couples continue to arrive, Eleonora has also celebrated her birthday these days.
You will have noticed, in these last photos, that Gianluca and Ignazio have removed their beards.
Now they look like two kids and even Piero did the same and on himself too . . . the same effect !! 😮
At the end, what can I say, actually two beautiful girls, Eleonora and Ana Paula.
Gianluca and Ignazio confirmed that they are constant in the canons of their female choices: Gianluca’s girl is dark-haired with long, straight hair and Ignazio’s is blonde. 
What we may not have expected was that both the women have roles that put them “in the spotlight”.
Eleonora is also a model and also an influencer. Ana Paula, with her work, is always on television.
When the photos of the two couples began to be published, many rude and absurd comments were written on many Facebook pages. To the Fandom, who may like or not like the two girls, I don’t think a rude attitude is right (in some cases I would dare to say absurd jealousy), even before knowing these two girls well.
For my part, seeing Ignazio so happy is priceless and Gianluca is no exception.
Let’s give time to time and enjoy their happiness.
Daniela
