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.

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 !!!!

IL VOLO IN PUGLIA by Daniela

Saturday, August 25, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, were guests in Puglia, at the NOTTE DELLA TARANTA.

It is a popular Apulian festival where, during the evening, typical Apulian songs are played and popular dances are performed like the PIZZICA.

It is a party that has a lot of involvement by the public, there were 150,000 people dancing and singing in a festive atmosphere.

Puglia 01

The guys of IL VOLO were guests in the backstage, but did not perform, They attended the popular festival and gave interviews, like this one, I translate for you.

P = We were really curious to see this event, and test the air, to be able, perhaps, to come next year, who knows.

G = Yes, absolutely beautiful to see this culture, which is not only famous in Italy, but all over the world. When you start dancing, this rhythm gets inside you, it’s nice, we’ll have fun tonight.

Journalist asks Ignazio = Do you already have any idea how you could adapt your voice to a Pizzica rhythm?

I = Actually no, but we can always work on it. It’s nice to see how this event is focused on folk songs and dances and how much tradition brings everyone into such a big event, so why not participate too? Next year or, in two years, we too might participate. It would be a great pleasure.

Journalist = Is there an evening, especially in the past years you know, or have you seen this event?

P = We must be sincere, NO. But we have always heard of the NOTTE DELLA TARANTA and this year, being free from engagements in these days, we decided to come and spend a couple of days in this magnificent land that lately is visited and loved by tourists from around the world. And it is a pleasure for us to be here.

As Ignazio said, on how to adapt our musical genre at this rate, we are a little unprepared, but our thinking is that the music has no barriers, and we never say, “This cannot be done.” But we say, “ Let’s try and then, let’s see what happens.”

Journalist = But will you come to this event, as a guest, or as a concert teacher?

P + I + G = (laugh) As guests, we do not think like teachers.

G = We cannot promise our presence, next year, of course, we would like it very much, but many things happen in a year, this year we came, we ca not wait to have fun, and why not, the next year we might participate.

P = The power of music is this, to see thousands of people united to dance LA PIZZICA.

Journalist = You are used to a large audience.

P = It is never enough.

Journalist = Do you know a Salento song and can you sing it?

G = Do you see how you put us in difficulty? You did it on purpose (everyone laughs, then Gianluca intones a typical Milanese song ….. ha ha ha …… final laughter.)

I = Thanks a lot to everyone, see you next year.

Puglia 02

International guest of the NOTTE DELLA TARANTA the singer LP, the American singer-songwriter of Italian origin, her name is, Laura Pergolizzi, she sang her most famous song “LOST ON YOU” to which she gave a rhythm to Pizzica, then she sang too a song in Italian.

WAITING FOR THE CONCERTS by Daniela

Updates on our boys.

PIERO:

He obtained his superior diploma.

Here he is photographed with his teachers who have written really nice words about our dear Piero.

Waiting 01

Istituto Tecnico “Federico II di Svevia” – Naro – AG

As many as 32 students have reached matriculation at our Institute this year.

Among them, also Piero Barone, tenor of the trio of “Il Volo”, who showed his brilliant preparation, supported by a fine and lively intelligence, combined with a spontaneous and enviable simplicity.

Already a student of our Institute, Piero had to abandon his studies to devote himself to the preparation in the singing art that led him to deserved international successes, which did not upset his character honesty and sincerity of mind.

Both the students and the commissioners were happy, as well as proud, to have carried out the operations of the state exams together with the famous young tenor Narese (from Naro).

Waiting 02

Congratulations Piero, we had no doubt . . . but to see you so happy and to read these beautiful words about you, makes us especially happy!

Piero can now relax happily at the sea and in his Naro . . . and indeed, here, at Naro, he met the beautiful American ladies who are doing the tour of Sicily.

Piero was photographed by the good Suzana Gutierrez of AAIV.

Waiting 03

Waiting 04

But who do I see in the front row ????

Our ROSE MARIE PALIOBEIS, wow wow ….. how wonderful, a coffee with the company of Piero! We envy you a lot, Rose, no indeed, we are very happy for you!!

GIANLUCA:

Even our Gianluca got a good result, his driving license.

He bought a small Smart Cabrio car, now he can reach the beach of Roseto, whenever he wants. Surely, will be very happy with this result, even Mr. Ercole!!

Waiting 05

And here is Gianluca, happy driving his car.

Always very nice, our Gianluca !!

Waiting 06

Congratulations Gianluca, you too have reached a good goal, your longed-for driving license.

IGNAZIO:

As usual, of Piero and Gianluca everything is discovered, while instead, Ignazio leaves no trace of himself.

In this photo, this girl met him while he was taking a flight (nice pun), but where was he going?

Waiting 07

Surely in his beautiful Sicily.

But when he arrives in Sicily, Ignazio becomes invisible.

This video, posted by him, makes us understand that he is in Favignana, the beautiful island in front of the coast between Trapani and Marsala.

Certainly he went to relax, in complete tranquility, before facing the concerts.

Let’s imagine it like this, just like when he was in Lampedusa, only on the rocks looking at the sea.

Waiting 08

Ok Ignazio, we respect your privacy, but sometimes show where you are, otherwise we are worried about you.

Ok, guys, holidays is enough, it’s time for concerts, it’s better if you come back to start the rehearsals.

Waiting 09

Waiting 10

And here is Ignazio and Piero on the streets of Bologna.

See you soon guys! 🙂

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?

Il Volo: Off Stage ~~ Life in Black and White

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to this edition of Il Volo — Off Stage…but not really.

Today, I’m feeling a little…abstract…maybe.  That isn’t the exact word that I’m looking for, but I think that for the concept of this article, that’s OK.

I’ve been inspired by the Black and White Facebook Challenge that is currently going on.  For those of you that use Facebook, you might have seen it.  The one where someone posts one black and white photo that depicts their life, no people, no explanation included, for 7 days?  It’s been so interesting to see my friends’ and acquaintances’ lives through the medium of black and white photos.

Black and white pictures speak to me.  Of course, I love to see a beautiful picture in full color.  It speaks of life in full bloom, you know?  Vibrant and present; in the moment.  Like the way we’re supposed to (and I’m trying to learn to) live life.  But Black and Whites speak of a fullness of life in a different way.  In a way that draws us in and makes us see the subject in a deeper, more meaningful way.  In a way that makes me want to know the story, the feelings behind them.  Is there happiness?  Love?  Fear?  Loss?  What makes the picture mean what it does?

So, instead of “life in color,” let’s live a little in black and white.  I chose a few random photos of Il Volo in this medium, and would like to know what you see.  Choose one of the photos  — or more than one  —  and tell us what you think.

Have a great weekend!

~~ Kelly

Latest on New Album – Article Translation from Daniela!

Daniela was kind enough to find this article and translate it for us here!   We already knew it was going to be Latin/Spanish and geared toward the Latin crowd, but I know we will love it anyway!  Spanish is actually easier to understand than Italian and we know the guys will put their heart and soul into it, as always and will have a lot of fun making this one!  Here is translation from Daniela!  Grazie mille! or should I say – Muchas gracias!  🙂  


Today is published by Optimagazine this article about the new album of IL VOLO.

THE NEW ALBUM OF IL VOLO WILL BE A POP REVOLUTION: THE FIRST CLUES ON THE RELEASE DATE IN 2018

 It will be released in 2018 with the promise of a big pop revolution: IL VOLO is already working on the new unedited album.

 black white

Begin to leak the first clues to the new album of IL Volo, which will be totally pop-kind as they had anticipated in recent months, during the World Night Tour – A Tribute to the Three Tenors started from Vienna on April 21st.

 The lucky tour has touched several European and Italian cities, and then landed on the American continent. Since September, the group has resumed the tour in Latin America, and is now working on the new pop album designed for the public and the Latin market. Produced by Emilio Estefan, husband of celebrity Gloria Estefan, the new album Il Volo will almost certainly be released by 2018, for which the three boys have been searching for melodies and lyrics, all in a newer popular dress. And from the words of the three tenors we really have to expect a great revolution!

“It will be a new pop project and we’ll surprise you, maybe there will be something with Ermal Meta and Tiziano Ferro, but we’ll see.”

Although they had expressed the desire for a break from the stages, Ignazio Boschetto, Piero Barone and Gianluca Ginoble left clues that make it clear that they were already in the studio to work on the new album of unpublished, but without hurry. “We will publish the new project when it is ready, we have no deadlines,” said Piero Barone.

 trio

At the moment, the band is devoting to the next album, and the world tour will resume in late November for the last two live concerts in Japan: November 28 will perform in Tokyo, and December 1 at Kawasaki.

The Magic Night Tour – Tribute to the Three Tenors has brought the latest record project by Michele Torpedine to the stage, which honors the show “I Tre Tenori”: Luciano Pavarotti, José Carreras and Placido Domingo, who participated in the album. Both the record and the tour have hit a huge hit all over the world with numerous dates sold out.

ENERGETIX, by Daniela

Our heartfelt wishes and thanks to all the Laborers of the USA and Canada, wishing them a safe and happy Labor Day, if they get the day off!!  It’s a bit ironic, a day to celebrate the workers and unions, the government gives us the day off, but many in retail and other fields of work, have to work!


On September 2, our boys had a commitment to Berlin.

Little was known about this commitment, perhaps because it was a private event.

But the event had already been advertised by our guys with a video some time ago.

 The boys made a photo shoot in Siracusa, Sicily, this summer for the new catalog of the ENERGETIX jewelery line.

On September 2, the new catalog was presented at this event!

 

The event took place at the Estrel Berlin where many people had the pleasure to see and feel the exceptional guests: IL VOLO.

What is your opinion of the cover photo as “Sicilian picciotti?”

This appears to be a recording of the guys singing, Grande Amore, put to a beautiful artistic impression, presented to the audience before the concert actually began.  

You do not see very well but look at that presentation

 

 

Then the guests could hear a real concert of IL VOLO, were they not lucky?

 

The concert included:

 

GRANDE AMORE

NESSUN DORMA

O SOLE MIO

CARUSO

CANZONE PER TE

L’ AMORE SI MUOVE

IO CHE NON VIVO

LIBIAM NE LIETI CALICI

VOLARE

 Grazie Mille and vielen Dank to die fruende  Il Volo Bavaria for this beautiful video of the concert!!  🙂
