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.
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.
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.
As you understand, this statue is on the internal scale of the university, so Piero sends us clear signs.
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.
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.
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.
Here Francesca is near Gianluca, during a dinner in Taormina with friends. Also present is Ignazio.
Really a beautiful girl.
Here is a journalistic report on their love story, paparazzi in Taormina.
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.
Only in these days has it become known of this beautiful action made by our lovely Gianluca.
On June 4, Gianluca went to a summer camp for the disabled and sang for them, here is the beautiful video that takes the scene.
How much enthusiasm they have just seen Gianluca on stage and he has certainly not denied selfies and photographs.
Also beautiful article on the event posted in the newspaper of Abruzzo, IL CENTRO, which I translate.
Ginoble sings for three hundred disabled people, big party for the invited singer on a campus of Rotary Abruzzo-Marche.
“It was a great emotion for me to see the smiles of those guys, an unforgettable afternoon”, said Gianluca Ginoble, singer of the “Il Volo” trio, who spoke on Monday afternoon at the Lido d’Abruzzo village at the invitation of the Rotary International Abruzzo-Molise. Gianluca was moved when he heard over 300 disabled people present in the room, singing “Grande Amore”, the song with which Gianluca, together with Ignazio and Piero, won the 2015 edition of the Sanremo Festival.
“I accepted the invitation willingly,” says Ginoble, “because meeting people with disabilities, for me, is always a personal enrichment.”
The enthusiasm of disabled boys and girls was difficult to contain and, after the song and the greeting of Gianluca Ginoble, everyone wanted a photo with him, and then Gianluca wanted to take a selfie with the whole crowd. “When I saw Gianluca I got excited,” says Fabio, a disabled person in the village, “and I sang out loud ‘Grande amore’, one of my favorite songs. I saw a few tears fall from Gianluca’s eyes.”
Really with very little notice, this news appeared two days ago:
Immediately followed by the announcement on the official page:
Ieri alle 15:45
Piero, Ignazio e Gianluca saranno ospiti speciali al serale di Amici di Maria De Filippi domani sera! Tutti sintonizzati su Canale 5 dalle 21.10.
Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca will be special guests at the evening of Amici di Maria De Filippi tomorrow night! All tuned to Channel 5 from 9.10pm.
It seems that two of the girls finalists will have a duet with IL VOLO, in an elimination trial. The two girls are Carmen and Emma.
Here we are at the evening.
And here is the performance with the two girls:
In the next video, Maria de Filippi asks the guys what they are doing in this period and Piero answers as follows:
“We are working on new projects.”
Ignazio intervenes, joking:
“I’m learning to dance because I do not want to make a bad impression with Celentano (dance teacher), even if I’m not in shape, but I’ll try”.
Gianluca continues saying:
“We are working on many projects, especially for next year there will be many surprises, perhaps even unexpected.”
Below you will see a test of lip syncs to which the boys had to undergo.
Prepare to laugh!
Here is a second video where you can hear the Bee Gees song if you are unable to hear it in the one above.
Luca Tommassini, dancer and choreographer, had this to say about working with IL VOLO on the show:
“It was wonderful to embrace Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca, after many years … nice to remember their first / our first tour in the United States of America … the long bus rides … the first dialogues tried on stage …
I dressed them with my clothes … the many laughs with their parents who discovered America … the first applause …. I love them!” ❤
This video was recorded in the backstage of the program, where the boys joined the chorus of wishes to celebrate the birthday of one of the participants.
Really very nice.
Ok, the lights go out, the program is over and has made the record of plays, consider that on another channel they broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest.
It seems that the guys had fun, they were at the game and they made people laugh.
Honestly I would have preferred to hear another song.
A few days ago we witnessed the four hours of live IL VOLO conducted by Red Ronnie.
For those unfamiliar with Red Ronnie, he is a music expert. He is often invited in to comment in broadcasts where the subject is music and he also keeps radio broadcasts, such as ROXY BAR, RED BARONE, and broadcast via internet on TV.
He never talked a lot about our guys, and the few times he had the opportunity to say something about them, they were never beautiful words. So we Italian fans, we were not very happy with this transmission, we were rather skeptical of the new pleasant words of Red Ronnie.
But we must say that Red did not know them at all. Notwithstanding he is a connoisseur of music, he NEVER followed IL VOLO and NEVER interested in them, so it was as if he saw them the first time.
Red Ronnie met the boys during the presentation of Michele Torpedine’s book, and they must have made an excellent impression, so much so that they almost immediately decided to make this transmission together.
But here we are at the evening of four hours of live.
Red continued during the evening to tell the guys that they were really nice, he was amazed at their skill and also their simplicity and perhaps one last thing that aroused his astonishment was to see for himself how much they are loved, these boys.
How many times we fans have said that, “Those who know them can not but love them.” And finally Red has known them.
Immediately the morning after the broadcast, or rather after a few hours from the broadcast, Red has published this video on his Facebook page, with this dedication:
“With the taste of a fantastic night still live with IL VOLO, with incredible results.”
He says in the video:
“I’m listening to the vinyl of IL VOLO, mamma mia!, that night that we spent live, it was incredible! We have reached 200,000 people and 34,000 posts and interactions, only on my Facebook page, not counting the other pages.”
This clickable video link below is an interview of Red Ronnie on the RTL radio 102.5 on the evening of May 4, the day after the broadcast with IL VOLO. Red starts talking about the Flight around 52:50 minutes.
Last night I had IL VOLO as my guests, and I thought about one thing, but we (Italians), that we have the habit of listening to the blues, from Chicago, and Austin, Texas, or the country-music coming from Nashville, and we NEVER take, in the slightest consideration, the music we export from Italy. I was amazed, we’ve had 300,000 interactions, a crazy thing, from all over the world. I watched as the chat numbers went up, I looked at the posts and thought, but we are not considering three guys, who are sprawling (whose fame is spreading) all over the world.
And because last night they came here and signed their vinyl album for the fans. A copy remained glued to my fingers . . . this is NOTTE MAGICA that they did in Firenze, in Santa Croce, on the 1st of July 2016, with them was also Placido Domingo, who sang with them a song that we now listen to, but above all he wrote with his hand, this on the CD: “I am very happy to lead Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca in this evening. Many people began to listen to classical music thanks to me, Luciano and Josè – these three guys continue our idea.”
It’s a beautiful thing, and the song is a classic, NON TI SCORDAR DI ME, and is a gem, because it is sung together by IL VOLO and Placido Domingo.
(You hear: NON TI SCORDAR DI ME)
The show host goes on to say: “They hit you, these three guys. You remember we interviewed them several times and then we were at their concert (sponsored by Radio RTL102.5) at the Milano Forum, supported by Radio 102.5, and said that there was a large audience participation. So Placido Domingo is right to write those things in the Notte Magica CD, because these guys are so young, they manage to involve their peers, and it is a moment of musical awakening that deserves to be acknowledged.”
The woman presenter confirms that it’s all true, and that she agrees with Paolo Giordano (another Italian journalist ), who instead now compliments Red Ronnie.
Red goes on to say that he spoke to the guys at RTL 102.5 and they told him that this is the only one of the Italian radio stations that has always supported them. Look, it’s not easy in Italy, we disdain this music, only to find out that abroad it is very good.
Last night something incredible happened, Ignazio at one point he made a very sweet song, Pino Daniele, at the piano, he did it in an incredible way, and Red said that today’s guys are competing to get the voice, higher, but you have to give emotions, not only have the high tones …… and this thing (which Ignazio said) struck me a lot, really. I spent a wonderful evening.
And here is the post that Paolo Giordano, journalist who at the time of Sanremo had had no nice words for IL VOLO, but who then repented, and began to speak well of them (remember the interview made by him to Gianluca, in Bisceglie?).
Paolo Giordano was listening to RTL102.5 radio and he heard live Red Ronnie, so he posted this comment on his Facebook page:
DICIAMO LE COSE COME STANNO
Bravo Red Ronnie a dire una cosa che agli italiani spesso sfugge: i ragazzi del Volo portano nel mondo la grande tradizione melodica italiana. È un merito, non un demerito.
Paolo Giordano translation:
WE SAY THINGS LIKE
Bravo Red Ronnie to say something that often escapes Italians: the guys of IL VOLO bring the great Italian melodic tradition into the world. It is a merit, not a demerit.
I would say that the meeting with Red Ronnie, was more than positive, and Piero, Ignazio, Gianluca have left their mark this time too.
But we fans were sure of this. These guys have a charisma that goes beyond mere artistic skill.
They also conquered Red Ronnie who, after Sanremo, when asked what he thought of the victory, said that his choice was that Nek had to win.
Even Paolo Giordano has repented, and I would say that since May 3, IL VOLO has another extra fan: Red Ronnie.
Video by Piero and Red announcing the broadcast.
What is your opinion on the repentance/change of heart of Red Ronnie?
We Italian fans, we are very happy with this new opinion of Red Ronnie and we are happy that our guys are supported by the beautiful words of Red (which remains a great connoisseur of music). Maybe other critics now will have second thoughts.
However, it must be acknowledged that Red had the courage to admit that he was wrong. BRAVO! very good Red!
And you, what do you think of this change of mind?
Tell me your opinion.
P.S. This last video has always been published by Red Ronnie before the broadcast, you watch it to the end, because in the second part, I would say there is a nice recognition to the 2012 American tour.
