IL VOLO AND THE NEW SANCTUARIES by Daniela

A post published by Maura Pucci made me remember this beautiful feat, made by four very tough women.

Unusual and … amazing aspects of Il Volo’s popularity. 

THE NEW SANCTUARIES

We are in 2015.

Four American ladies, from different States, who met on social networks, animated by a great passion for IL VOLO and enthusiastic about the recent victory of the beloved group in Sanremo, decide to join together to undertake a trip to Italy.

Some new Il Volo fans might think: It’s not new! At their concerts in Verona and Taormina there are many fans from abroad and in particular Americans.

It’s true.

Today the Arena of Verona and the ancient theater of Taormina are places of great appeal for the fans of Il Volo from all over the world, who arrive there in droves, both to attend a concert in scenarios such as only Italy can offer, and to meet the virtual friends, frequented on Facebook.

SANCTUARIES 01

But in the spring of 2015 things were still not exactly like that. And the four ladies embark on an Atlantic flight, for the ONLY purpose of visiting the places of residence of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, with the same spirit with which the romantic young people of Northern Europe, three or four centuries ago, left for the Grand Tour at vault of Italy, to be satisfied with beauty and culture, but at the same time with the same religiosity of those who want to embark on the journey of Santiago de Compostela.

Because, let’s face it, when it comes to doing this, it means that the three characters have already risen to the glory of the altars and that their places of life have become three new Sanctuaries, pilgrimage destinations …

Montepagano, Marsala and Naro, three small towns in the Italian province have become places of international resonance.

SANCTUARIES 02

Okay, I just wanted to joke around.

But there are still many fans, especially Italian, but also foreigners, who go, or dream of going to Montepagano, favored by its proximity to Rome. And some of them even went as far as Naro.

Unfortunately, after five years, the sanctuary of Marsala today is not very frequent because S. Ignazio moved to Bologna.😂😂

When I read the news of this trip in 2015, I fully understood the attractive power of these extraordinary and unique guys.

SANCTUARIES 03

That trip, was undertaken by Deborah Georgini Beaupre, Joan Brenin, Madeline Vitella and Maria Lagostini Leps.

In Italy, it was an event, it had never been heard that fans came to get to know the countries of their favorites. Also Sanremo had just ended with the victory and therefore, the local newspapers talked about this trip, here are the articles.

FROM AMERICA TO ROSETO, TO SEE THE PLACES OF GIANLUCA GINOBLE

(I translate for you.)

Saturday, May 16, 2015

“I crossed the Atlantic Ocean to see you” is film stuff. Indeed, no?

Because four American ladies have been stronger than exaggerated idioms, making something that even in the best dreams come true: they came from the United States of America to Roseto just to see the places where Gianluca Ginoble, a member of Il Volo, grew up, then headed straight to Sicily and do the same in the native places of Piero Barone and Ignazio Boschetto.

SANCTUARIES 04

The super fans are Maria Agostini Leps from Pennsylvania, Joan Brenin from Florida, Madeline Vitella from New Jersey and Deborah Georgini Beaupre from Texas, who say: “We met on Facebook in 2014, thanks to an article written by Maria after a concert by Il Volo. Having the same passion, we decided to meet and organize this trip to Italy, to see the places of our three darlings. It was enough for us to have the photo all together with the sign of the name of the three cities, but today a dream has come true.”

The dream was to meet Gianluca Ginoble and it became reality again thanks to Facebook, given that Maria wrote to Ercole, the father of the singer, saying of their presence in Roseto.

SANCTUARIES 05

And since fate sometimes puts a good word on it, chance has meant that Gianluca was in Roseto in these days, before leaving again for the artistic and promotional commitments of Il Volo.

So, at five in the evening, on the Roseto seafront, the meeting of a thousand hugs and smiles, with selfies, dedications on records and photos.

Deborah shows a photo of the license plate of her car in Texas: “IL VOLO”, saying that after the death of her husband the songs of the group gave her strength.

SANCTUARIES 06

Maria confesses that she returned to Italy after 50 years (she left at 9) for this. All four have seen many Il Volo concerts and love the three singers.

Gianluca Ginoble says: “It is such a great thing that I can only thank these splendid ladies, because in the face of such demonstrations of affection there is the risk of getting your head up.” (feeling overly important)

FROM AMERICA TO MARSALA, IN THE LAND OF IGNAZIO BOSCHETTO

(I translate the most interesting parts for you.)

SANCTUARIES 07

SANCTUARIES 08

Comune di Marsala Article – Click Here

They came from the USA to make their dream come true: to visit the places where the members of Il Volo, were born and raised.

In Marsala, in the city of Ignazio Boschetto, the first stop of the four American ladies was the visit to the representative office of the municipal administration which appointed the singer Ignazio “ambassador of Marsala in the world”.

The American ladies will leave tomorrow for Naro, the birthplace of Piero Barone; while in recent days they had already visited Roseto degli Abruzzi, the land of Gianluca Ginoble.

He, Piero and ours Ignazio, meanwhile, are already in Austria to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, where Il Volo is finalist by right with the winning song of Sanremo “Grande Amore”.

 

FROM AMERICA TO NARO, ON THE TRAIL OF PIERO BARONE FROM IL VOLO

SANCTUARIES 09

SANCTUARIES 10

The last stop on the Italian – Sicilian journey was Naro, the city of Piero Barone. Here too the reception of the girls from “Il Volo Naro Fan Club” was warm.

In the town hall the solemn ceremony with the mayor Lillo Cremona, the vice-mayor Lidia Mirabile and the mother of Piero, Eleonora Ognibene. Then a tour to discover the baroque of Naro and its monuments: the Castle, the old C athedral.

The Sicilian tour will end with a visit to the city of Agrigento and then to Taormina. Then the return to Rome for the US.

SANCTUARIES 11

What women!

Admirable. They were the first, but then many others came.

I don’t think I would have had their courage, but I’m happy that they got what they wanted.

I bet that many of us would like to make this nice trip, and maybe be so lucky to be able to meet Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca ……… but sometimes dreams come true!

WHEN DREAMS COME TRUE by Daniela

 

Dreams 01

You liked the first old video that I translated and so I looked for this Italian interview.

In some cases you will hear the boys answer, but there are no questions, evidently they have not been included in the video, but equally the sense is understandable. Only towards the end, we hear the voice of the woman who interviewed them.

I would add, for my part, that I always have the feeling that Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, even then, were speaking more serenely if they were interviewed by foreign people. They have always known, from the beginning, that they are not so well liked by the Italian press, which in any case tries to embarrass them, especially in the final questions.

But the three of them have always been well determined in the answers, evidently when in a dream, you feel it truly yours, you defend it to the end.

G = We have changed the name from Il Trio to Il Volo.

This new name is above all as a wish, for music ….

P = Because music makes us fly.

G = It is as if it is thousands of meters (up, up) what is happening to us.
We put all the passion, all the love, for this thing that is happening to us, and that we love to do, because it is our passion and therefore, of course, we put all the effort.

I = And we will always give the best of ourselves.

P = We put all the effort into it, because we understand the depth of the people who are  alongside us and who are working with us.

I = The project was created, we made this recording, this CD between Rome and Los Angeles. It was a personal and also an artistic growth, we had people and producers behind us, who always told us “commit yourselves, with the heart, filling everyone with excitement.”

G = We must learn from these great artists, follow their steps. For example, the experience of We Are The World has made us grow. We have seen people, very famous, who have remained humble, like Celine Dion herself, or Barbra Streisand. We hope with this CD, to be able to convey to people, what …..

P = What we feel inside.

G = And of course we must remain humble …

P = Staying humble yes, as Gianluca said, Celine Dion or Barbra Streisand  are humble, but they have reached the maximum of world music, therefore we have understood that, with humility, great levels can be reached.

In my opinion, however, if one is too full of themselves or arrogant, he does not go anywhere.

Dreams 02

G = All this happened to us at the age of 15, it is not something that happens often. We work hard, because as I said, this is our passion, this is our love, it is singing, music.

P = We live for this.

I = How many kids want to have this ?? And we were lucky to be able to do all this.

G = We must also thank Roberto Cenci, because it is he who united us, he had the genius, no, the flair, to unite us, and then this project was born.

The brothers argue.

P = The nice thing about the three of us is that we tell each other everything face-to-face.

I = Yes, it’s not that we speak behind our backs, if I don’t like something I say “Piero, look, I don’t like this thing.”

P = And perhaps this is our strength.

I = Our strength is the friendship that unites us, the truth, and the genuineness that we have …. the spontaneity.

G = Obviously among us …… the groups must be like this, right?

Dreams 03

PR = I would like to know what criticisms you have had from the kids of your age, you are not afraid that, being so young, maybe you miss the stages (of your life), maybe school life, daily life, going out …..

G = This is the stage we want to do!

PR = Despite everything?

I = Yes, because we do it with passion, we don’t do it because we are forced, but that’s what we want.

G = Exactly, absolutely.

I = You know, when you are a child, you open the drawer and you like what you find ….. we would like to do this, in short it is what we want to do, this is the answer.

G = It happened to us at the age of 15, but as I said, this is our love, our passion and we are very committed to this. We do not believe in missing stages, absolutely.

PR = But because now is only the beginning and everything is wonderful, but then, maybe in a few years, you may be missing going out with your friends.

I = Maybe we could miss some outings with friends, but I don’t think other 16-year-olds travel the world, and it’s a beautiful experience. We do not miss stages, indeed we have more.

Dreams 04

But how sweet and mature were these young Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca already then?

I don’t know if it is my impression, but it seems to me that Gianluca has a red face, he is probably trying to hide his first shyness, which has now passed very well.

And the photos? What can we say, they make us melt even more, what sweet guys !!

Daniela

Back then, they dreamed of being able to sing one day at Radio City Music Hall and Carnegie Hall ……. the dream came true !!!

Tanti Auguri, Piero!! Another here has gone by…you will be 27!

pieroOk ladies and gents, fans of Il Volo…. it’s that time of year again, when we ask you to choose a song for Piero’s birthday, so Kelly can make another one of her amazing videos!!  🙂

You have just about 1 week to send in your song choice to Kelly!  Please send your songs to our Gmail account:  ilvoloflightcrew@gmail.com by Friday, May 29, 2020.

Kelly tells me she chooses the song first, and then finds all the pictures to go with it!  So, send in your song choices soon, so Kelly has enough time to put the song and video together.  She is extra busy right now at the hospital, dealing with all of this pandemic!  She is our own “local” hero!!

Thank you – 

Jana and Kelly!

Happy Birthday, Ignazio!! 25 Anni!

I was in the Arena a few days ago, and I witnessed a magnificent show.
Your solo was something indescribable, the emotion you put into performing this song, was palpable to everyone and the audience rightly honored you.
So be it, your life, full of emotions, that you will be able to show to the whole world.

Dear Ignacio, I’m watching and following you from the shy, insecure three boys to world superstars, GG may be the most beautiful man in world, but you are instant second, your smiling eyes, the way you express emotions while singing, I was so close to you sitting in front row in Rome, my heart was so full of joy and happiness, words can not explain the emotions I felt… and I will see you again in NY in RCM hopefully soon.
Wishing you all the happiness, love and health, stay always way you are, sincere, humble, world loves you, God bless you,
Your best fan, Irene

I have felt that each of the guys has a totally unique place in the vocal pantheon: the best romantic baritone in the business. (you know who) The best helden tenor (heroic tenor). (you know who) But Ignazio is without a doubt the best lyric tenor I have ever heard. I refer to the Charlie Chaplin song – ” Eternally” – Ignazio’s solo work and especially the harmony work (which is much more difficult) on this song is SUPERB !!! Incredible vocal control and tone. Wish I could give him a hug on his birthday. Happy birthday, Ignazio from Myron Heaton of Las Vegas.

Happy Birthday Ignazio, the one who makes us smile!
This was so apparent recently in Merida, Mexico when, during the concert, the lighting person couldn’t find find Igna who was sitting on the piano singing in the dark. Watch this video on Instagram and see how Igna solves the problem in an hilarious way which endears him to the whole audience, without missing a heavenly note.
A typical Ignazio moment! He is a true treasure to watch, to hear sing and to admire.

Dear Ignazio,
Happy Quarter-of-a-Century Birthday. May the next quarter of a century and beyond, bring you continued good health, sustenance, tranquility, peace of mind, resourcefulness, personal and professional growth. Continue to surround yourself with people who respect and love you. You are a very special caring, sensitive, warm human being who exudes charm. May you reach new heights yet remain the humble, fun-loving man we all love.
On your birthday you have the ability to bless other people. My wish for you is that you be blessed with the myriad blessings you bestow on other people.

I so wish you could be my grandson.from Loretta forever.

Dearest Ignazio,
This is an important milestone birthday for you…congratulations on becoming 25 years old! I hope your day is filled with lovely food, fun and surprises! I am sending a birthday poem that might apply to you, as it did my grand-nephew: [this style of poetry is called a tanka]

lighted candles
amid blue swirls
on colorful cake
birthday boy awaits
blue lips grinning

Eat yummy cake, maybe even sneak the frosting, too!

Sandi E. from Ohio, USA

Unforgettable, that’s who you are!

I’m wishing you a spectacular 25th quarter century birthday, Ignazio!

You are loved, respected, appreciated, and enjoyed for every magnificent nuance of who you are.
Thank you for being uniquely you, Ignazio!
