CAPRI, HISTORY OF A MEETING

There are things that happen, so, by chance.
Remember this beautiful fan-art from IL VOLO that I used for a post?

CAPRI 01

I found this beautiful image on the official IL VOLO fanclub. I liked it immediately and so I asked who had made it, permission to be able to use it.

In this way I met Xinjie, a sweet Chinese girl who has lived in Rome for seven years. She is a graphic designer.

We have established friendship, started chatting and getting to know each other a little.

Looking through some photos of her Facebook profile, I found this beautiful photo.

CAPRI 02

Really a beautiful girl, but did you recognize the landscape in the background? It is just what you think: Capri.

I see Capri and I immediately think “A CHI MI DICE” and the beatiful IL VOLO’S video, and I write, a little amused: “But are you perhaps one of the three chosen girls to watch the video shoot?”

And she immediately replies “Yes, I am”.

You can imagine my amazement, of course I asked Xinjie many things about Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca and what she felt during that day.

She had no photos of that day, she had not been allowed to take pictures of it, but the photographer had taken pictures that would later be published.

These days the photos have come out and so I thought I’d do an interview with Xinjie and publish it for you.

Here she is among our boys. That is a nice picture. I’m happy for her, but the envy !!

CAPRI 03

D = How did you manage to be chosen to watch the video?

X = I replied to the email of the official IL VOLO fan club that asking those who wanted to assist, to send the request to watch the new video resume. It would have been shot in central-southern Italy and asked to make the whole day available. I sent the membership and after a few days, the staff contacted me on the phone telling me where I should go and that I had to keep the secret.

D = How long have you been following IL VOLO?

X = Since I came to Italy seven years ago. I came for study and work and I came alone. At the beginning it was very hard. One day I was looking for videos on you tube and by chance I heard “O SOLE MIO”, sung by Il Volo, it was immediately love, but I had no one with whom to share this interest and on radio and TV I heard little about them.

D = Who were the other two chosen girls?

X = The other girls came from Campania (Italian region with Naples as capital). They were 14 and 27 years old. But I have been more with Sara, the girl from the official Fanclub, she is very kind and pleasant.

CAPRI 04

D = Had you met Ignazio Piero and Gianluca before that day?

X = Only once, this year in Rome, at the Instore at the Discoteca Laziale.

D = How did they seem to you?

X = They are very beautiful. They are normal boys, but more kind and nice

D = So many people,  say they are nasty and haughty boys, to you, how did they look?

X = They are the most sincere and nice guys I’ve met, real angels.

D = How long were you with them ?

X = It was supposed to be from about noon until 6:00 pm, unfortunately they arrived three hours late, because the video footage around the stacks was longer, but the wait was also nice.

D = What did you do when they arrived?

X = They were so hungry !!!! They had not had lunch, so we looked for a restaurant together for lunch. They asked us if they wanted to have lunch with them, but we had already had lunch so we said no. So we watched IL VOLO eat!

Then, when they finished lunch, Ignazio asked me: “Coffee? Ice cream?”, And I said “Yes”, so they got ice cream for us.

D = Were they embarrassed about your presence (as they were eating) or were they very natural?

X = Absolutely very natural.

CAPRI 05

D = Who was the most witty or who spoke the most?

X = Ignazio, but also Ignazio and Piero together.

D = Did it seem to you that between the three of them there really is an understanding as brothers?

X = They are really good friends.

D= After lunch, did you all go somewhere else or did you just stay at the restaurant?

X = We left but stayed close, they took some scene.

D = Don’t you mind that they didn’t record you in the video?

X = Absolutely not, I thought we were invited only to assist from afar and instead we were together with the boys.

D = You girls could  take pictures?

X = No, it was not allowed.

D = But the photographer took some very nice pictures of all you and you Xinjie are really a beautiful girl.

X = Thank you.

CAPRI 06

D = Were you excited for that meeting?

X = Very much.

D = Have you been to a concert already?

X = No, never, this year I will go to Rome and then to Verona.

D = Do you want to hear them in concert?

X = Yes, at 10,000%, I can’t wait any longer. My Japanese friend who met IL VOLO only this year (thanks to me) went to the Tokyo concert before me, I was jealous !! Also for her it was the first concert and she said she was moved. She said that their voices were divine. She wanted to come to Verona this year, but it’s hard to take this vacation now, maybe she’ll come to Italy for their concert next year if they do it in Sicily.

D = What’s your favorite song?

X = In this CD is “VICINISSIMO”.

CAPRI 07

D = If you were to win a dinner with one of them, who would you like to go out with?

X = It’s a difficult question for me, because I can’t really choose.
Fortunately I have already had a lunch with them in Capri !!

D = Yes, but they ate, and you three girls ate them, with your eyes !!!

X = But they also talked to me a lot. At one point, Ignazio and Piero (especially Ignazio) started talking to me with Sicilian words and then they explained to me. Then they tried to pronounce my name and they were good.
Gianluca didn’t talk much, but when they said my name Gianluca said “Who is better? Me or him? (Ignazio)”, but they were good both, they did the right pronunciation. After lunch, Ignazio looks at me and says: “But you’re shy, don’t talk at all,” and Gianluca replied: “She is shy like me.”

D = Were you sorry when you said goodbye? Did they hug you?

X = They had to leave with the boat, yes, they hugged us. Then Piero, from the boat, greeted us calling all our names, even mine !!! Mine is hard to remember, I know, and I’m so moved.

D = After meeting them, do you think they deserve all the success they have or, in your opinion, are too valued or undervalued?

X = They deserve all possible success. They are really the best, most confident, good and positive guys ….. I can say that they are perfect guys.

D = Was it sad to leave them? If you were to go back, would you do this adventure again or is it not worth it?

X = I wanted to stay in that moment, I thought: “Ah, how I would like this moment to become eternity”.
And then I realize that it has already become eternity, with the video that has been made. For me it was a divine day. It was my real “THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE”.

CAPRI 08

Thank you, Xinjie, for giving us all these nice details of your special day, we really appreciate it.
We are all very happy with this beautiful experience of yours and we wish you, with all our heart, to be able to have so many other meetings with Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio.

Surely they will remember you very well, you will have left your mark of beauty and kindness.

A hug from the whole Il Volo-Family!

日本ツアーの続き (THE JAPANESE TOUR CONTINUES) by Daniela

The tour in Japan is going very well.
Already four concerts have been made.
The last one in Bunkamura, Tokyo.

It was a success!

Here is the short video made by Mrs. Lenora, at the end of the concert.

The boys are expected by the Japanese fans, for a last autograph and they are always very available and nice.

Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, also advertised the movie NOTTE MAGICA de IL VOLO, which will be released in Japanese cinemas in July, and then posed for a photo shoot, wearing Japanese fashion clothes.

What to say, they are always nice to see !!!

They could really be professional photo models.

They also made a video to promote the new video “A CHI MI DICE”.

There is also another bit of good news.

The album MUSICA de IL VOLO has entered the second place in the daily ranking of the best-selling records in Japan (Original Confidence Daily International Music Charts).

Italian pride abroad.

And then they were interviewed, and here is a summary of this interview.

Our Age Article – Click Here

IL VOLO arrives in Japan.

The tenth anniversary concert tour starts in Japan!

I was shuddered by Il Volo’s voice! 

Notte Stellata (Starry Night)” that Yuzuru Hanyu chose for the music of the Pyeongchang Olympics and received great acclaim. The young trio of Italian origin, Il Volo, is the owner of an incredibly sweet and clean singing voice that gently embraces the heart of the listener.

Piero, Ignazio, Gianluca ……, three members found talent in the Italian audition program at the age of 14 and 15, formed a boundless trio that sings from Italian folk songs to operas and pops, caused a boom all over the world.

In commemoration of the tenth anniversary of the formation, it is an interview with them during the tour of the concert in Japan that is coming at this time.

I have heard of love and passion for music, feelings for friends and future activities.

Piero Barone, born 24 June 1993, from Sicily. Sing the air of the opera in a dramatic volume, reminiscent of R. Pavarotti from the apogee. A smart and cool leader who also has a sense of laughter

PIERO = Since we started, we have also sung opera classics and original folk songs, but Il Volo’s main goal is to let many know about the charm of Italian music.

Gianluca Ginoble, born 11 February 1995, from Abruzzo. A handsome boy with an ordered appearance just like a sculpture. Sing in a romantic way with a shiny and deep velvet voice and capture the heart of the listener.

GIANLUCA= What is at the base of our music are the traditional melodies of Italy, and the passion to convey that charm has not changed at all.

Ignazio Boschetto, born 4 October 1994, from Bologna. From the soulful and sparkling cry to the parts he delicately sings, the ability to sing freely. He’s hot. A humorous speech is a fun mood maker.

IGNAZIO= Italians love music a lot, but we all grew up, especially among music lovers. Everyone was influenced by grandfather and dad, and grew up listening to Italian folk songs and works.

There is a reputation for their appeal that attracts women all over the world. They are also very popular as a star in South America, and it is also a promise that the scene where women who fall in love with them throw colorful gifts (sometimes even bras!) On stage!

The Japan Tour audience, which started May 13th, was not only feminine, but also colorful. A large public and people from adolescents and twenties to grandfather and grandparents, the three of Il Volo will be united in a warm atmosphere. The venue is just the classics room like the Tokyo Bunka Kaikan Grand Hall, Arie in the name of the work, the light Italian folk songs resound with applause, to every part of the song, “Bravo.”

Il Volo also greeted the public, sometimes serving a kiss.

For my age generation, they are almost the age of my children, but for the dynamic singing voice and the appearance I knew at the show, there is also a lot of sensuality for adults! The heart is beating fast and the romantic concentration in the blood seems to increase.

GIANLUCA = It was impressive to come to Japan that your ways are wonderfully good. I am impressed by how you listen to our music calmly, very carefully and impatiently! It would be nice if the South American and European public were with everyone in Japan (laughs). I will learn Japanese at my next visit to Japan, so I will be able to exchange more words with the public, so please look ahead.

IGNAZIO = I’m happy to be able to do a concert at Japan. Arigatou Gozaimasu! I look forward to performing in Osaka this time. Everyone who comes to the concert, let’s meet up at the “Okini!” (If I had gone to Osaka, I would like to say “Okini”, Inazio practiced repeatedly.)

In 2016 an open-air concert was held in Florence entitled “Il Volo with Placido Domingo NOTTE MAGICA – Dedicated to the three great tenors”. The model becomes a film and will be released from 19 July in Japan. Even those who could not come on this tour can enjoy their beautiful singing voices in the cinema. What kind of movie is it?

GIANLUCA = The concert took place in Piazza Santa Croce in Florence. Spend a summer evening with us in a fantastic illuminated square …. I think you can enjoy such a romantic moment. It would be nice if you could look at the theater!

PIERO = Even on the fifth anniversary of the training, they asked me, “What do you think of Il Volo after five years?”

And I replied: “I would like to celebrate the tenth anniversary with these three people”. Now, what I can say is this: “I really want to sing with them, for 50 years more.”

Guys, this Japanese tour, is taking place in the best way.
We are so happy for your success, because you deserve it.
I would say that your tenth anniversary is taking place in the best way.
But the goals are still many.
We are always here to support you!

NEW VIDEO by Daniela

We knew it would arrive.

It was announced by a preview on TV on RAI 1, A CHI MI DICE’s new video has arrived !!!

In the clip you see Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca aboard a sailboat, sailing towards the beautiful island of Capri, passing between the stacks.

Take a few minutes and take a look below!

This video is really beautiful.

A beautiful song, sung in a fantastic way with a breathtaking view of the Capri Faraglioni (Stacks).

NEW VIDEO: CAPRI by Daniela

In these days, on all the fanpages, photos of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca have appeared in Capri, the beautiful island that is located in the Neapolitan gulf.

Capri is an island much frequented by VIP’s, and famous for its beautiful FARAGLIONI (rock formations which jut out from the Mediterranean just off the island’s coast).

CAPRI 01

Gianluca’s photo.

 

The first clues were given by the boys as they reached Capri.

Ignazio’s video

Gianluca says: We’re going to Capri, I’ll show you ….. Here it is.

Piero’s video

But why do the boys go to Capri?

Certainly it is a beautiful island and the sea and the weather, these days deserve a vacation ….. but the boys are certainly not there to have fun.

A couple of days ago, to all the Italian members of the official fan club, (I don’t know if, even to foreigners) an e-mail arrived, warning that IL VOLO would record the new video of the new single and wanted to involve also the his fans in the shooting. It was also anticipated that the day of the video shoot would be the 18th and in southern Italy, but did not specify the place.

But after the first videos posted by the boys, everything was clear, the new video would have had the background of Capri.

Here is a photo of this video for the song: “A CHI MI DICE”.

CAPRI 02

CAPRI 03

How wonderful this video will be, and the guys seem to have had a lot of fun, work, yes, but with fun.

Ignazio says: Float in the water.

I seem to be Jim Carey in ONE WEEK FROM GOD (BRUCE ALMIGHTY).

 

CAPRI 08

Their arrival has not gone unnoticed, here is a video posted on a local newspaper that headlines:

IL VOLO ON HOLIDAY IN CAPRI

And this little article that I translate for you:

IL MATTINO ARTICLE – Click Here

Il Volo in Capri, touch and escape Easter on the blue island

CAPRI 12

Il Volo, the group composed by Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble, was last night for a few hours on Capri. One hit and run just before sunset. The trio arrived with a speedboat at the marina, then a walk in the streets of the seaside village before returning on board. The arrival on the island, probably linked to a photo shoot or a video clip, has not gone unnoticed: so many photos and videos taken by the fans.

…….. and this:

Il Volo, a surprise blitz on the island. The ecstatic musical group: “Magnifica Capri”

CAPRI 09

“Blitz” on Capri for Il Volo. Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble, the two tenors and the baritone. members of the famous musical group, made their fleeting appearance on the island yesterday afternoon, returning from a sea excursion. “Capri, you were magnificent! Today was one of those days for which 24 hours are not enough, we look forward to telling you more. Stay tuned.” These are the words given to their own social channels. A presence in Capri, apparently, for work and not for vacation. As it turns out, the three artists were busy shooting a video clip or a photo shoot. Many selfies with fans: in this photo Il Volo is in Marina Grande with Lia Guercino.

Barbara, always with them, beautiful and good, Barbara !!

CAPRI 10

Beautiful things run fast, and the day ends early.

Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero greet Capri.

CIAO CAPRI !!!

CAPRI 11

Once again a beautiful adventure.

The e-mail had also arrived to me, I never saw Capri, I dreamed for a moment, but only a moment.

I can’t wait to see this new video, I already feel it will be beautiful, and you, what do you say ??

PIERO, IGNAZIO, GIANLUCA at AMICI by Daniela

Saturday April 13, IL VOLO was hosted by AMICI, the Canale 5 program that looks for new talent in dance and music.

Here are the boys in the backstage who warn that they will soon enter the live broadcast.

Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca had to duet with a boy and a girl, aspiring singers of the white team.

AMICI 01

All together, they performed a piece of “MERAVIGLIOSA CREATURA” and one of “LONTANO DAGLI OCCHI, LONTANO DAL CUORE”.

Then, at the end of the evening, IL VOLO, performed “A CHI MI DICE”, which just two days ago came out as a new single.

Here is the union of both performances.

At the end of the first performance Maria De Filippi (presenter of the program) says that the boys of IL VOLO are “in shape” and also says that when he sings Piero, it seems that he closes his mouth and instead his voice is loud!

What is your opinion about the two singers who duet with IL VOLO?

Here are some photos of the evening.
