As is often the case, he left us wondering just what he was up to since neither Piero or Ignazio mentioned it (I double checked. And of course we know that Ignazio has an especially compelling reason to be out of social media right now).
On March 20, we found out what he was doing there. Singing, “Il Mondo,” Il Volo participated in the opening of Eataly Milan Smeraldo, a place described as “ a temple of taste dedicated to the incomparable flavors of Italian cuisine.”
The video was provided by Eataly Milan Smeraldo and can be seen

I think the general consensus among the comments from our friends at All Things Il Volo is that we always love to see the guys, but the video clip including them is too short. 😉

I’m back from my vacation, and it seems like it’s been forever since I’ve been here. Mostly because I was rushing around on the evening that I left and walked away leaving my computer packed and ready by the front door…and not realizing it until I was on the plane ready to taxi down the runway. *face palm* Working from my phone didn’t work out so well with our spotty wi-fi either.
Anyway, I’m back and ready to catch up with my Il Volo family. 🙂
Il Volo Conquers New York…Again…
While I was gone, our guys made what must be the quickest trip ever to the US, the focal point being their performance as guests with Laura Pausini in New York at The Theater at Madison Square Garden.
By all reports, Il Volo was as amazing as always. According a piece compiled from several resources to give us an impression of the concert (by the ladies at All About Il Volo), they got a very warm reception the minute they walked out on stage:

For those of us that like a simple play-by-play,
here is an article from i-Italy Magazine:

Bringing Their Music to the Young People
Of course, it’s no news to us that our guys are amazing and are gaining fans set on abjectly adoring them, but it just warms my heart when I read of it happening. It seems like the powers that be at the Modesto Gallo Center are excited to be able to be a part of it as well.

to head over to our affiliate, Team Il Volo, to read about how they feel that Il Volo will help them appeal to a younger demographic–which we also know is one of Il Volo’s goals.
With a Song in…His…Heart
It has been said that another goal of Il Volo’s is to include some of their own original music on future albums, a goal I know I’m hoping will be accomplished very soon. In the meantime, Ignazio has debuted an original composition as a songwriter and composer! I know we’ve all see the video, but we can watch it a few more times, right? Singing, “Come in Paradiso”, Ms. Katya Pantaleo:

If those lyrics don’t make you melt, nothing will.

First of all, on behalf of my board sisters, I would like to say “Thank you” for all the nice compliments on how we’re doing with the site. We still can’t believe how much has happened in such a short time, and we work hard to try to make this the best site we can the best way we know how. That you guys love it so much means the world to us. 🙂
That being said, we are always looking for ways to make it better, and one of the things we would like to do is to try to capture the more professional of Il Volo’s activities in a more timely fashion and make them easier to find and keep track of. I don’t think we’ll do this everyday, but as we find important news items to share. So here’s the first one. Hope you like. 🙂
Gianluca Poses for Pictures…
…to go with his article, “Dall’ Abruzzo al mondo Gianluca ha spicatto Il Volo.”
Now, I know I might be biased *bats eyes innocently*, but I’ve always said that if this music thing doesn’t work out, Gianluca would do as a model in a pinch. To further bring that point home to me,

Most of the answers, I think we already know, but I know none of us get tired of reading about our guys, and some of their answers are cute. 🙂
Come in and share the love of life, friends and Il Volo!
