IDENTIKIT OF A STAR , tribute to Ignazio Boschetto for his 24th birthday by Valeria Bosch

A few days ago was Ignazio’s birthday and my friend Valeria Bosch wrote a beautiful post.

Once again Valeria interpreted our thoughts and managed to analyze some of the attitudes of our dear Ignatius, who certainly did not escape those who love him. 

I translate for you, with great pleasure: Daniela

Identi01

What makes us feel so much fondness, so much affection, so much continuous interest for a public figure, be it actor, singer, writer or other? Of course, first of all is the emotion that he knows how to communicate to us with his art, the feeling of enchantment and uniqueness that he creates around him, and, of course, also what means a lot is his physical appearance, his way of posing himself, what in short is commonly called “body language”.

But what do we really know about these characters? If we want to know them in depth, we must not rely on the tamed, plasticized official biographies or even the news we read in newspapers and mass media, always affected by interested intentions, positive or negative, but we must rely only on our eyes, on our ability to observe, especially small details, signs that can act as a litmus test to define with confidence the personality of our darling.

Identi02

So I did for Ignazio, intending to pay him a tribute for his 24th birthday: I closed my eyes and I tried to review, among many images that crowded in my mind, some moments, some gesture that could work as a mirror or introspector for understanding his feelings, his intimate reactions. And I share them here with you, chronologically rearranged, although obviously this is not the sequence with which they resurface to my memory.

Identi03

1. The embarrassment of the boy – 2009

We are at “TI LASCIO UNA CANZONE”, the guys (future “IL VOLO”), from soloists who were, have recently been composed in a trio that debuted with “ ’O sole mio”. Antonella Clerici, who admires the three teenagers , says to them with great affection: “In short, they already call you ‘the three tenors’ – which of you is Pavarotti?” The three little boys, frightened and awkward in their little clothes, remain silent. Only Ignazio, the most plump, manages to murmur with a voice that barely comes out, almost choked: “We do not know ……” A boy a more grown up would have responded with a joke or a brilliant answer. He takes seriously that strange question, still unaware of the incredible future that fate was preparing them.

Identi04

2. The childish joy of Sanremo – 2015

It is the evening of 11 February 2015 and the trio Il Volo has performed for the first time on the stage of the festival with “Grande Amore”. As soon as the performance is finished, the audience snaps up and gives to the very young singers a resounding and interminable “standing ovation”. An applause never seen in Sanremo at the first performance, a round of applause that leaves them breathless: Piero is annihilated, cannot even grumble thanks, Gian (who turns 20 that day) breaks out in tears and takes refuge on the shoulders of Carlo Conti, Ignazio tries in every way to cope with the situation, thanks the audience, but, just like a happy child, he cannot help but let slip a smile, which he covers childishly with his hand. It is a gesture of infinite tenderness, which I will never forget.

Identi05

3. The tears of “Alleria” – 2016

During the concert at the Forum Mediolanum of Assago, 29 January 2016, Ignazio performs as a soloist the wonderful song by Pino Daniele, “Alleria” – a cry that rises from a sad soul, who suffers a lot for love and continues to suffer, despite the passing of time. Ignazio is in symbiosis with Pino, it is as if he had tattooed it on the heart, in the head, on the skin: he interprets the song with such force, such an identification that, at the end of the execution, he cannot hold back the tears. The intensity of the interpretation has overwhelmed him, his emotion is true and profound. Tears are the testimony.

Identi06

4. The wonder for the beauty of Florence – 2016

A date that will remain a milestone in the history of IL VOLO: 1 July 2016, the joke of the words of Antonella Clerici has become incredibly real. With great humility and without wanting to compare themselves to the Three Tenors in the slightest, but as an act of homage and remembrance, the three boys who became incredibly beautiful and elegant, perform an unforgettable concert in the presence, and partly direct, just from one of the three celebrated tenors of the last century, Placido Domingo. The concert is a sum of excellences: the beauty of music, the skill of the boys, but above all the beauty of Florence. It takes place in Piazza Santa Croce, dominated by one of the most beautiful churches of our Renaissance, an inestimable example of art, culture and Italian genius. The church stands out against the backdrop of the square in the dim light of the evening, a square full of people, the lights are turning on, the show is breathtaking: Ignazio, on the stage with the master Domingo and his companions, cannot restrain himself from saying,  “Look how beautiful Piazza Santa Croce is!” and joins hands, raising his eyes to the sky in a gesture moved and full of amazement. Master Domingo uses the right adjective to answer him: “Divine!”

Identi07

5. The disarming sincerity in the Red Ronnie study -2018

On 3 May, in a long 4-hour interview, the boys met with Red Ronnie. An evening of positive sign, jokes, joy, interaction with fans of all the continents. The old musician was amazed in the face of fame and the international success of the three boys, and of course, also confidences, revelations, work projects. Ignazio as usual is the fool, jokes, not standing still for a minute, makes Red desperate because it causes a small failure to a precious jukebox that stands in the studio. But to specific questions of Red, responds to questions with an unexpected and disarming sincerity.

The person Ignazio most loves in the world? His sister, who acted as stand-in mother and a reference point in the sad period when his mother was forced to long absences to cure a serious illness.

Relationships of love? To be taken with great seriousness, to be men also means to prove to be able to resist temptations, a principle that he never failed during an engagement lasting more than two years, even if now that bond is over “Because we grow, we change, and there are new demands that life inevitably puts in front of you.”

An Ignazio, in short, who is very mature and very sincere.

Identi08

The portrait of Ignazio that emerges from the small episodes recalled here is that of a boy with disarming sincerity, not yet counterfeited or “corrupt” from the environment in which he is forced to live for work. Contrary to what is his outward attitude, especially on the stage where he is lively and restless, often comedian and joker, is a serious and concrete boy. He once said, “The first thing for me is to stay down to earth.”  But Ignazio is also very emotional, strong and fragile at the same time. His particular sensitivity leads him to live emotions in a profound way, with an intensity that puts everything in his song, and it is precisely for this reason that he manages to establish a special pathos with the audience. For him, music is everything. When he closes his eyes and sings he seems to leave for distant lands, of which only he possesses the key of access;  music is his second skin, and it is perhaps also for this that he has made contact with Gian and Piero, who are certainly not less, a perfect artistic and professional alliance!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY IGNAZIO!………..Valeria Bosch

MAS QUE AMOR by Daniela

Today I had nothing to do, so I spent a little time on you tube and, of course, typing IL VOLO immediately appeared several videos of songs but I was immediately attracted by this.

MAS 01

I’m sure you all know very well this song and this video, but it’s really wonderful to review this song.

It was published in 2013, 5 years ago.

Our boys were really very young and were blossoming into the beautiful men we know today.

MAS QUE AMOR

The video is beautiful, the scenes are shot in Bologna.

Very beautiful scene of the painter who paints under the curious eyes of boys of different ethnic groups, and the final message of the painting is very nice, a message of LOVE.

Our boys are very sweet and the song originally sung in Spanish is simply delicious.

MAS 02

The English version of this song was also made and the title is WE ARE LOVE, very beautiful, but my favorite is still the Spanish version.

I know I’m a romantic woman, and maybe I’m partisan too, but this song always steals my heart. If I compare it with other songs of today for both lyrics, musicality and performance, I cannot but be proud of our boys who have sung such a love song, at their young age, with great skill and passion.

MAS 03

While I was duplicating the video for you, I took a look at the last comments and, to my amazement, I saw that the last comment was two minutes before I duplicated it.

This means that the interest for this song is still very much alive, after five years!

The beautiful things always remain in the heart, because basically, WE ARE LOVE !!

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.

Daniela

IGNAZIO, THE CONQUEROR by Daniela

A couple of days ago Ignazio sent us some photos, taken at Isola dei Conigli, in Lampedusa.

Beautiful sea, beautiful landscape, beautiful Ignazio.

In the silence and solitude of the place, Ignazio hugged his guitar and began to sing.

I immediately shared this video in the comments with you, but maybe not everyone has seen this beautiful video, which now I want to propose to your attention.

Did you recognize?

Of course, it’s NOCHE SIN DIA, this acoustic version is beautiful. I really like it. Ignazio plays it and sings it in a delightful way.

Moreover, the fact that Ignazio plays this song, in moments of relaxation, proves that he really likes this song, so much so that he made his version of it.

And now we admire the panorama of Lampedusa ……. and Ignazio’s close up!!

Ignazio in BoatIgnazio in Boat 2Ignazio by the Sea

But how much fun is Ignazio?

It’s really a pleasure to see him so happy and relaxed and to hear him play his guitar.

By the way, did you like the version of NOCHE SIN DIA?

IGNAZIO and UOMINI SOLI by Daniela

Bellaria June 1, there is a birthday to celebrate, Dodi Battaglia, guitarist of POOH, (famous Italian complex). In these days from his facebook page, Dodi has advised of this event, completely free, to be held in the evening, on the beautiful seafront of Bellaria, in Emilia Romagna.

Many artists will be present to make duets with Dodi, and among these there will also be our Ignazio Boschetto.

Ignazio 01

In the afternoon, before the rehearsals, Ignazio was interviewed by a local TV station.

In this video, Ignazio says that the Pooh, have made the history of Italian music, for him it is an honor to be there and sing with Dodi, share the stage with Dodi, who besides being a great artist, is also a great friend.

In addition, Ignazio confirms that he was born in Bologna (which is in Emilia Romagna) and therefore could not be present in this event.

And here’s the video with our sweet Ignazio!

So in the afternoon, there was evidence, and there were already people present, and then there are videos that show Ignatius who is trying the song entrusted to him, UOMINI SOLI. (MEN ALONE)

It’s a beautiful song, with which POOH won Sanremo in 1990.

It’s a very difficult song for both the text and because it has very high tones, but this certainly does not worry Ignazio.

Here is the beautiful video of the afternoon tests.

Ignazio 02

Ignazio really good, you’re really a great artist and you have a big heart.

Maybe you in America do not know this song, but believe me, because of the high tones, very few singers agree to sing it.

And here are the photos of the evening. Ignazio and Dodi.

Ignazio 03Ignazio 04Ignazio 05Ignazio 06Ignazio 07Ignazio 08Ignazio 09

And here, finally, the video of the evening. Too bad that it is resumed alongside and only a piece of the song, but we can all hear and see that Ignazio was in good shape, very good!

And here’s a last video, broadcast by a local TV the day after, where this is said:

“THE YOUNGEST SINGER ON THE STAGE, IGNAZIO BOSCHETTO from IL VOLO, great talent, for him a dream to be here.”

Ignazio says: “At home I have a guitar autographed by Dodi.”

Ignazio 10Ignazio 11Ignazio 12

What to say, these guys always amaze us, and leave us speechless.

Bravo Ignazio.

You really are a very sweet man.
