After a long wait, yesterday came the evening of the Sanremo Festival where we could see the boys again.
They sang three songs, NESSUN DORMA, CANZONE PER TE, and LA VITA E’ ADESSO.
Beautiful in Armani, they immediately presented themselves with NESSUN DORMA.
Good as always.
They had a very long applause from the audience and a standing ovation.
The audience liked the show very much.
Soon after they paid homage to Sergio Endrigo, composer of CANZONE PER TE. They performed it together with Baglioni and in the original version.
Honestly I prefer when the guys sing it alone in their version.
Baglioni asks Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, what an effect it has been returning here since 2015.
Ignazio replied that after three years, great emotion. We were born here in 2009 with TI LASCIO UNA CANZONE (was broadcast by Sanremo) as a trio. We won the Sanremo Festival in 2015 and meet again here after three years and be received with a great standing ovation is a great honor and pleasure.
Thank you so much indeed.
Baglioni continues by saying that yesterday there was a tribute to a great composer, Luis Bacalov and tonight we would like to make another tribute as is the custom in this Sanremo for a great singer-songwriter and performer who has been missing for thirteen years, Segio Endrigo.
Sergio Endrigo won exactly 50 years ago in 1968 together with Roberto Carlos ……. what did you do 50 years ago in 1968?
Piero answers that their grandparents went to work.
Gianluca asks Baglioni, “and what did you do in ’50 ?”
Baglioni answers, “nothing, I was in the dreams of mom and dad.”
Ignazio (joking) tells Baglioni “you remember when we went for a bike ride.”
Then they left the stage and we all thought that their performance was over. We were also disappointed with just two songs.
After a long wait, towards the end of the show, they came back to sing LA VITA E ‘ADESSO, a beautiful song written by Baglioni.
They sang, IL VOLO and BAGLIONI, and it was fantastic, engaging, loose, sung well and involved the audience who gave many applause and another standing ovation.
After so much waiting, all over, beautiful memories remain and the certainty that the boys are always in good shape.
Nothing has been said about their next projects.
Congratulations guys, ahead of all.

As we are all waiting for news from the boys, and for the moment everything is silent, I thought to translate this article that appeared immediately after the victory of Sanremo in the newspaper IL CORRIERE DELLA SERA that has so titled:
AFTER SANREMO, THREE MILLION CLICKS, AND WITH IL VOLO TAKE OFF VILLA ZANCHI.
On January 15th they made the filming of GRANDE AMORE, the video shot in Stezzano.
Some find them snooty for the classic style, the tuxedos and the voices set. Those who meet the three singers of Il Volo, triumphers in Sanremo, tell us instead that they behave like any three teenagers. At Villa Caroli Zanchi, in Stezzano, the trio spent a day, January 15, for the filming of Grande Amore. The video of the festival’s winning song has already totaled over three million views on YouTube. “They sang, sang classic arias, joked with models,” says Loris Olivato, managing director of the estate. There was the atmosphere of a happy company.
The movie (video) opens in the central hall. The boys are standing and light beams filter through the windows. It is a scenic effect because that day it was raining heavily. In the other rooms the scenes that shoot famous love films have been shot. There is Ghost with Ignazio Boschetto, the tenorino with the goatee, Bolognese, 20 years old, grappling with the processing of the terracotta pot with a girl who reminds us with the haircut, of Demi Moore. And to think that, six years ago, when they were launched by Antonella Clerici in Ti I leave a song, he was chubby, not at all sexy. “On the day the video was shot, he ate one tangerine after another,” says Olivato. They worked without interruption from 9 to 22.
A Gianluca Ginoble, from Abruzzo, 20 years old, has had the task of impersonating Spiderman. The superhero descends from above, upside down, to kiss his beauty. Since the first is never good, he had to repeat the scene several times.
Piero Barone, the eyewear of the group, Sicilian, 21 years old, met the greatest difficulties. His piece, which recalls Back To The Future, was shot late in the evening under water(rain). He can be seen, glistening and with a bow tie, while he comes across a rival to get his woman back.
The crew of IL VOLO for filming in Stezzano consisted of 35 people. To accompany them there was also the father of one of the three and their agent. On that day some students arrived at the villa and asked the singers for some autographs. And Olivato says they have proved to be very friendly. “They promised me that if they won Sanremo, they would come here to celebrate. Now – says Olivato – I was waiting for them to keep their promise.”
Our golden guys are always kind and available.
For your information the video of Grande Amore was made by Oblivion Production in the beautiful Villa Zanchi.
Villa Zanchi is located in Stezzano, a town in the province of Bergamo, which is the city adjacent to Brescia !!
