Ode To Ignazio Boschetto ~ by Valeria Bosch

ODE TO THE VOICE OF IGNAZIO BOSCHETTO

 

I am a fan of all three of Il Volo’s boys.  I find matchless their way to make music, their song better than the angels, outstanding the idea of ​​putting them together, giving us all a phenomenon that will mark the musical history of these years. So it’s right I love and support them all in equal measure. 

 

But, you know, the flesh is weak and nourish a passion, a preference I think is a pardonable sin. Well, my weakness is called Ignazio.  I love Gianluca’s singing, with his wonderful hot and caressing voice, and also Piero, with his excellent male and powerful tone. But Ignazio, in my way of feeling,  has that extra quid, an added value, because he gives me, when I listen, an emotion that no other voice ever gave me. I tried to analyze, as if it were a chemical reaction, what “reagents”  cause me everything and here are the conclusions:

1- Ignazio’s voice is clear and crystal.  It is the very essence of FRESHNESS, referring to natural scenery made of clear skies, spring waters, and green blinding meadows.  His entrances make the lighter and brighter the musical fabric, think of “Quando l’amore diventa poesia”, “Tornerà l’amore” to the same “Grande amore.”

2 – Ignazio’s voice is FEELING and EMOTION.   When he sings “Memory” or “Unchained Melody,”  it  becomes penetrating and sensual, digs you into the soul.  His vibrations exert a fascination on the listener that leaves the desire that his singing will never end.

3 – Ignazio’s voice is PASSION.   In some songs he does not enter, but “breaks” into the musical fabric.   Just think of “Cinque giorni” or “Aspetterò,” where his impetus opens up scenarios of ardor and passion as whether it would lead to paroxysmal love.

4- Ignazio’s voice has a thousand facets and shades.   We are accustomed to listening to him in modern and lyrical pop. It was a great surprise that  last winter, during a House Party broadcast, we saw him masterfully interpret, “Somebody to love,” by  Queen, and naturally bear the impact with the rock style of Gianna Nannini in “Meravigliosa Creatura.”

 

5 Ignazio’s voice is MUSIC itself.  When Ignatio sings, he forgets everything, closes in a bubble of his own, becomes unique with the notes he is interpreting, allowing him to give the text an unprecedented expression.

 

Below, his solo interpretation of the famous “Caruso,” performed when he was not yet 20 years old in the “Porta a Porta” broadcast, just as an example of the extraordinary nature of this unique voice.

~~What Guys, Our Guys!! ~~ by Daniela

On November 10, 2017, this article written by Bartoletti was published on Facebook.

Marino Bartoletti is a renowned Italian journalist and writer.   He is an extremely correct and exquisite person and ……. loves IL VOLO.

I translate for you what he has written.   I’m moved by reading it.

image

How much value do they have in the world of entertainment and communication, which I somehow represent, affection, esteem, sincerity?   How much value do  the human relationships have?  How much value does friendship have?  Last night, while presenting my book at San Lazzaro di Savena, a step from Bologna, amid an audience – I seem to be able to say, interested and involved –  came from the back of the room two  guys who are famous all over the world: but really VERY famous. They sat with discretion: they attended, applauded. They smiled at me.

Those two guys were Ignazio Boschetto and Piero Barone, that is, “IL VOLO”, accompanied by their manager Michele Torpedine.    Gianluca Ginoble was not present.  However, he sent me a very affectionate message, as he  was not able to attend only because he was blocked by a commitment  hundreds of kilometers away.   Until a few days ago they were on a stage.  They were on the “Luna Park” in Buenos Aires not at the San Lazzaro Media Center, before going to Miami, then jumping to Kiev, acclaimed by thousands of crazy fans.

 image

Yes, I admit, the one in the middle is not Ignazio. But Piero and Gianluca are the real ones, those of IL VOLO. And I always meet them with great joy. Because beyond their talent, their spirit of sacrifice, their desire to improve themselves, the persistence with which they hold the good name of Italian music in the world (they are backed by a triumphant  tour in Central and South America and are about to launch a new album to say the least surprising), I consider them above all, and first of all  simple and wonderful guys. Why am I saying that? Because I KNOW THEM!

 

To those who were astonished at their entrance, they replied, “What is it?  We wanted to  surprise  Marino and we came to greet him.” 

I would like to say who writes negative about them, to those who write antipathy forbidden and meaningless, who even insult them (for evil gratuity? By ignorance? Perhaps by envy?)  If they had the opportunity to look these guys in the eyes, only once,  they  would understand so many things.

Thank you for your visit, champions. I’m sorry I can not go to Tokyo next week. But I know you will be very good on your own.

Marino Bartoletti is really a great friend of our guys, so he often defended them in various television broadcasts and defended them by the jury of Sanremo too.

GRAZIE MARINO!!

~Personally Speaking~ Tribute to Ignazio via Cappiddruzzo di Ricotta!

IMG_9455pbp

 

I am so happy to say, “We did it, we did it!!”   Penina and I made our first ever “Cappiddruzzo” di Ricotta…a Tortello in honor of Ignazio!

Jane says…

It was not hard.  The recipe is very easy. (See earlier post from 11/6/17 for recipe.)  I used the pre-made pizza dough you can buy in the refrigerator section at your grocery store.  I have to add a correction to the original recipe…roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick, NOT 2-3 cm!    The ricotta-chocolate chip-vanilla-cinnamon combination is delicious.  I think they taste best just fresh out of the oven!   Besides sprinkling the finished top with sifted powdered sugar, I dressed it up a little more with a drizzle of melted Nutella…all the while listening to IL VOLO serenading me in the back ground!

Tortello 4 (1)

 

Penina says…

I found it very easy. The dough that I had came in a big thick rectangle. I was able to pull it apart into two thinner rectangles because the dough looked layered and I just turned up a corner and started pulling. It was a lot easier to roll it out that way as it was already a lot thinner. I started out doing what it said–folding it over twice.  Then I had a lot of filling left, so I went back and cut off the parts that were just empty dough and re-rolled them and made a couple more to use up the filling. I have plenty of ricotta left–I may try it again with the pizza dough in a few days (after we eat these up!).

If you have bought dough this is a no brainer.  How hard is it to stir up the ingredients? My grandkids could do it (okay, two of them couldn’t!).  The hardest part is rolling out the dough.

 

IMG_0530

Now we are ready to sit down with a cup of Lavazza coffee, and feast on our creations!  The only thing missing is YOU, our fellow Flight Crew members.  How we wish we could all sit together at the same table and share our friendship in person, while enjoying a special treat in tribute to Ignazio, (and of course we can’t forget his brothers, Piero and Gianluca!)

ENJOY…Godere!

Personally Speaking ~ A Cappiddruzzo of Ricotta ~

22780371_10156393194754749_2816259006574113788_n

 

I know some of you are probably wondering what I found out from Nina as to how she made the delicious looking

Tribute to Ignazio Tortello!  

 

She very kindly replied that it is a “cappiddruzzo of ricotta.”  The word cappiddruzzo, is a word in Sicilian jargon  (thank you, Daniela)  that means “hat.”   This probably refers to the form of the tortello she shows in her photo above.   With this to go on, I researched and found a recipe I will hope is similar to hers.  No one could EVER totally replicate hers as only SHE can fill it with the amount of sibling love that permeates from her to her brother.  But, we, as Flight Crew members and Il Volo lovers, can come close to it by adding OUR own special ingredient of LOVE FOR HIM/THEM!  

One ball of pizza dough (can use pre-made pizza dough or pastry dough.)

Flour, for dusting

1/4 c sugar

3/4 c mini semi sweet chocolate chips

1/2 tsp. vanilla

pinch of cinnamon

1 c ricotta

5 heaping cups of  Ignazio/Il Volo Love and Admiration

Powdered sugar for dusting

~~~          ~~~         ~~~         ~~~

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place dough on lightly floured surface.

Press down and form into a circle.

Using a floured rolling pin, roll the dough into approx. 12 inch circle about 2-3 cm thick.  Trim off tiny piece of outer edge with crinkle edged cutter if you want a fancy edge at the end.  

Sprinkle with a pinch of sugar and press into the dough.

Cut circle in half. Trim straight edge with crinkle cutter if desired. 

Mix remaining sugar, choc. chips, vanilla, cinnamon and ricotta with your love and admiration right here!

Place half the mixture on each dough piece.  Fold the dough over the filling. 

Seal the edges well with tines of a fork or your fingers. 

Fold approx. 1/4 inch of the edge back over itself.   Seal again with fork or your fingers to be sure you have a good seal. 

Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake until golden brown, approx. 8-10 minutes. 

After removing from oven can cool slightly and dust with sifted powdered sugar or drizzle with chocolate syrup!!  (Warm up a little Nutella for this!)

 Goda della vostra creazione!!

Ignazio’s sister, Nina, has posted this delicious looking creation on her pizzeria social media!  She says it was made “in honor of Ignazio.”  I’m not sure exactly what is inside of it.  Ricotta?  Nutella?  Pistachio?   I am going to try and get her recipe for all of us IL VOLO…IGNAZIO fans here to make at home!

$6.86/second…Is It Worth It?

Hello all…. I’m going to cheat a little bit here (but I still have to pack, as I’m leaving for an exciting weekend with hot and sandy beaches – already getting chilly here in MI!) and repost this one I wrote last year, just about a year ago now.  It seemed to be a well-loved post, so I hope you enjoy it again.  I know there are some newbies out there that have not seen this!


Just an update… I still have this addiction and my pusher skills are still going strong, just recently I converted another admin at work.  It started out she was having a stressful day, trying to schedule some meetings.  I viciously sent her Gianluca’s version of Bridge Over Troubled Water from the first LA appearance.  I waited and waited, knowing she was busy.  I wondered… did she like it?  did she think I was crazy?  I started out with something in English and well-known.  I figured she’d at least like the song.  Ok, sent an email back “thanks, she said, that was wonderful!”  Oh whew!  So glad.  She’s a director’s admin!  lol!  🙂  Another week or two pass….another stressful day.  But finally, it was almost over.  I told her she need an Il Volo break.  I sent her the “new” Ave Maria and told her that even if she did not know the song or words, the melody was hauntingly beautiful.  I waited some more…. YES!  She loved that one as well…  Ok, time to really reel her in!  I pretty much had her hook, line, and sinker!  I think I sent her Nessun Dorma as well and then told her a “little bit” more about me and the guys.  Then I sent her this article!  Days passed… I knew she was busy.  Finally!  The email was returned.  She loved this article!  And she says… yeah, they aren’t too bad to look at, either!  lol!  Yes, folks… there are more fans to conquer.  You never know when some poor, unsuspecting person will just fall into your evil web of deception with those 3 innocent-looking faces!  I challenge all of you to make a new fan this week!


Hi, my name is Jana, and I’m an Ivolover. My obsession started about 3 years ago or so, and like many obsessions, it started out slow. But along the way, I had to find a friend or two to help feed my obsession and help it grow. It started with just watching them on PBS, with a 1 me 2concert or two. Then, I went to the concert. After that one concert, it became apparent that this obsession turned into an addiction! I just had to have them – their faces, their music, their voices, the sound, it filled my soul like no other euphoric thing I’d ever experienced! I became a fanatic, ordering every CD I could find and scouring You Tube each night for a video or interview, so I could experience this amazing phenomenon. I got my fill most nights, but I just had to have more. I started listening to them all day at work, playing the same CD over and over. The bad thing was, I became a pusher! Yes, every time someone came to my desk and asked what I was listening to, I couldn’t wait to start pushing my addiction on to them. And it was so easy, too. Just showed them the CD cover and told them how awesome they were. Then I brought in the DVDs for them to watch. I was so bad…. Pushing my addiction on others like that. When we thought we couldn’t possibly get more of them, it becomes our ring tones on our cell phones, and their pictures are our wallpapers on our phones and computers, and to really annoy those that aren’t our fellow Ilvolovers, we have their songs on our ringback tones on our phones! There we were, 3 ignaexposing innocent persons to just a snippet of their voices, every time they called us! I just had to stop, but I couldn’t. Then, I found what I thought was a support group. We met and shared our stories about our addiction, and they were all so similar. Kindred spirits! I’d also found this blog site, where I found more addicted and obsessed persons! This obsession was rampant, and I quickly found it was spreading like wildfire all around the world. The scary thing was that no one tried to stop it! We just kept adding more people to our group. Like all addictions, it was getting a bit expensive, too! We just had to have their latest CD or DVD and we had to have it now. We could not wait and thought nothing of paying expedited shipping costs, just so we could have it first! We went to concerts and fought to get front row seats. We did not care what they cost, it was “the guys!” Then there were the meet & greets. Were we afraid of overdosing? No, never! We knew our friends were there to help us. The cost of the meet & greets and concerts? Hundreds…to some, maybe even thousands! It didn’t matter. We were there. Even when we’d thought 3 gianwe’d had enough, we just kept needing more to feed this habit of ours. We kept pushing others, so they would share in our glorious addiction; this untold high we got when we heard our favorite guy sing “that” note! It was pure ecstasy for those precious seconds! The cost of those meet & greets become a distant past when you see their faces up close and personal.  Oh, and it doesn’t stop there….all of a sudden, we find out there is a concert in Italy!  The next thing we know we are buying a ticket to Florence or Verona and then we are afraid.  Afraid to tell our loved ones we are going to see the guys, yet again  – that part is not so bad, but we are afraid to tell them it’s in Italy (because we are sure they will be calling the men in the little white coats!)!  What a joy it will be to hear them in their own country.  We’ve yet to experience the joy and beauty of our own country, but don’t think twice about jetting off to Italy!  They don’t know it, but for those 30 seconds or less when you are looking into those innocent and talented eyes, they are yours! They belong to you. When you hold their hands, the power of your touch, matches 3 pierotheirs and it’s electric. The fire courses through your veins, their eyes penetrate yours and you are lost in those few seconds; you get dizzy, and lightheaded. You cannot speak; your legs feel like fettuccine, and your feet like cement blocks. You are rudely brought back to reality when they say to turn around and smile, and snap! You turn around one last time. You look at them and the moment is gone.

 

Many say, after one, or even two meet & greets, and the money it cost; that’s it, no more, won’t do it again. Won’t spend all that money on a ticket, or to get first, their latest CD…they are done. They are calling it quits. They try to be strong, but peer pressure is overwhelming. The date of their next concert is drawing near. Ok, you decide, you will go – just to keep your friends company. Well, maybe you’ll try to get good seats, but definitely no meet & greet. The time is getting closer and closer…you start to feel it again, as hard as you try to push it way, it overtakes your very being again. All of a sudden, you realize, your addiction is back. It’s this craving, this thing, it’s just so overpowering; you can’t stop it. You buy the ticket, you check your bank account, it’s nearly overdrawn, you buy the meet & greet!

 

No, no, you said you wouldn’t get caught up in this thing again. It’s not worth all the money, and the waiting, and anticipation. It’s too much stress! But, like the words in Unchained Melody, it’s a hunger; a hungering, for their touch. A need, only they can fill.

So, is it worth it you ask?

3 guys pbs

There they are, standing before you, looking at you with those innocent, sparkling, and playful eyes;

your hand reaches forth…1 hand

Thank you for all the joy and love you give. Love and blessings to all!
