Updates on our boys.
He obtained his superior diploma.
Here he is photographed with his teachers who have written really nice words about our dear Piero.
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).
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.
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!!
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!!
And here is Gianluca, happy driving his car.
Always very nice, our Gianluca !!
Congratulations Gianluca, you too have reached a good goal, your longed-for driving license.
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?
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.
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.
And here is Ignazio and Piero on the streets of Bologna.
See you soon guys! 🙂

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!!
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?

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.
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.
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.

From Gian…”something’s going to change….”
A cute little birthday greeting from Gian to Ignazio!
Guys in the studio on Igna’s birthday – looks like he wants cake!
Time to Record!
Ciao – Jana
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.

Here are some photos in the catalog.
What about beautiful jewels worn by our wonderful home jewels: Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca.
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:
O SOLE MIO
CANZONE PER TE
L’ AMORE SI MUOVE
IO CHE NON VIVO
LIBIAM NE LIETI CALICI
Grazie Mille and vielen Dank to die fruende Il Volo Bavaria for this beautiful video of the concert!! 🙂
Here is a link to the Energetix jewelry site. And as Jana put it, “Hey, this stuff is actually affordable!” 🙂
Also below is a link to Amazon – where else!? 🙂

Hello folks! I had planned something else for today, but my plans changed, so I thought I’d go back and find an old post. This post had 126 comments!! This was written by, I believe, Linda, one of the “foundresses” of this site with Marie. The comments are amazing. A few of you are still out there commenting – Loretta, Myron, Kelly, Allene, and several others I recognize, and many I don’t, and many that we haven’t seen for quite a while! Enjoy – it will take most of your morning to read through this – it’s over 7000 words! 🙂
(there are no pictures, but it looks like people had put links to various sites, as they were referencing articles and interviews, etc. Take a look and see what you might find. It is interesting to see these comments and see how much as come “true” 🙂 – what things have changed and what has stayed the same!)
The John Saroyan Theatre at the beautiful Fresno Opera House was sold out. More than 2400 people stood and gave Il Volo a standing ovation!! The Theatre was sold out and the applause was deafening for the more than 2 hour performance!!
Our Elaine drove 200 miles in Labor Day traffic to attend her second concert this week! She tells us it was well worth the trip!
1) Twitters, Tweets and Keeks:
Gianluca tweeted last night “Thank you Fresno for the sold out! What a wonderful concert!
Piero tweeted # feelings # live # concert.
See keek of Piero rehearsing with the drummer before concert on Mundial Facebook.
See Keek of Paul Sorvino singing “O Solo Mio” with Il Volo at LA concert, also on Mundial.
Ignazio, no tweets? (some things never change! 🙂 )
2) Have a look at Il Volo Tumblr of the audience during the standing ovation last night. Anybody here recognize the age group of that audience? Hmm.
Please check our resource category on the left side of the site for things Il Volo.
The next concert is September 1st in Phoenix, wonder if they’ll ride the Il Volo bus to this concert?
After Phoenix they’ll be in Chicago on September 4th and Detroit on September 5th. Many of our Flight Crew are looking forward to these two concerts, as they’ll be attending! More on that later.
Love and Luck in Phoenix, Guys!!
