EVENTS DURING CHRISTMAS TIME 2021 by Daniela

During the period of the Christmas holidays, Il Volo was a guest in several television and non-television programs.
We start with their presence on the evening of the eve (recorded previously) in a television program in Spain called “Viva la Fiesta :Nochebuena” broadcast by Telecinco.
Il Volo performs “SE” from Nuovo Cinema Paradiso (video sync is not perfect).

Please click on the image below to view the video.

Really sweet this song and our boys, what about pure elegance.

On the same evening , Il Volo is in Montecarlo, for a private event.
We have news of this event from the photos that Gianluca and Piero have published, unfortunately we do not see anything of the event.

But here we are at the most beautiful part of the evening.
After the Mass celebrated by the Pope, greetings from Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero are broadcast on RAI1 and, from the Frasassi caves, the sweet song: O Holy Night.
GIANLUCA = The most beautiful things in life are not that far away, they are close to us, they are within us.
IGNAZIO = I am inside this magnificent place that never ceases to enchant us.
PIERO = We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Fantastic. Finally we have been able to see another piece recorded in Frasassi.
This song always causes me shivers of emotion, the voices are wonderful, our young men are very elegant, and the place is enchanting, despite the low temperatures, you will have all noticed the puffs of breath during the video. 

Il Volo then delivered their vinyl record to some friends as a Christmas gift, and some of them thanked by publishing these photos and comments:

This was published by MCN Studio 17, the recording studio in Sicily where they recorded Ecstasy of Gold.
MCN Studio 17 had write this beautiful words:
“A year ago we had the privilege of being able to host in our studio, the beginning of this epic musical adventure, of the three golden boys of Italian bel canto, Piero Barone, Gianluca Ginoble and Ignazio Boschetto, who with polite simplicity have demonstrated their artistic and human greatness. Today we receive the fruit of this meeting that we will never forget. Thanks ilvolomusic always go ahead.”

This video was published by Saturnino Celano, (he is a well known Italian musician, and also a producer and composer), here is what he says:
“Hello everyone, I wanted to show you one of the most beautiful gifts ever received, really never received, ever since I started attending the wonderful world of music, this is a truly amazing gift.
Look what I received today, complete with dedication, from Ignazio Piero and Gianluca, amazing double vinyl, look how wonderful, and to do justice to this work, which I had the honor of listening to while they were recording it. (He shows the photo of the internal disk) Look what a sight. (he shows the red vinyl and puts it on the turntable (Ecstasy of gold begins).
Thank you very much, thank you very much, thank you very much !!!
(He plays the start of Your Love and greets a friend live.)
Il Volo Sings Morricone, complete with dedication and autographs. Really wonderful, I recommend it at all, and thanks again to Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca.”
This was published by Red Ronnie (very famous Italian TV presenter, his is the Barone Rosso and Roxy Bar programs).
“I got this wonderful gift from the guys of Il Volo: Il Volo Sings Morricone, look!
Yes, dear guys, but we said to ourselves that you were coming to the Red Baron, clearly the jukebox is there,  still broken, (Ignazio broke it), so Ignazio is armored, but I’m waiting for you. Thank you!”
The video above was published by Saretto of the Bam Bar in Taormina.
And this from Antonella Clerici, the one who presented them in 2009 in Ti Lascio una Canzone.❤
Gianluca also sent this sweet message:
“I want to send a special greeting to all the children of the AGBE (Association of Parents for Homopathic Children) and their families.
Unfortunately I wanted to come and see you, but my work commitments did not allow me to be there with you. But I send you many wishes for a Merry Christmas with the hope of hugging us again soon and that this situation will improve soon too.
Hello to everyone, I love you and see you very soon.”
Unfortunately, there was also sad news, such as that of the passing  of the singer of Il Divo and their dear friend, Carlos Marin. R.I.P.
Reposted from @ilvolomusic.
It hurts our heart to hear this news. We have lost a beautiful soul and a wonderful voice that will live forever.
Our deepest condolences to your family and friends.

Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero then published their Christmas greetings, in three different languages:

English

Spanish

Italian

Really many commitments and all fantastic, but there is still one more, a long interview with the RAI1 television program Domenica In, aired on December 26th.
But for that, there is a long translation and you have to wait a little longer.
See you soon: Daniela

NOT ONLY CONCERTS by Daniela

While they were in Abruzzo for the Chieti concert, Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero made a very special visit.

This video was broadcast by the Abruzzo TV news program.

Man = Exceptional visit to the small patients of the pediatric oncology department of Pescara. The singing trio of IL VOLO has arrived to bring gifts and joy.

Not only 01

Woman = They kept their promise, they returned to find the small children of the oncohematology department of the hospital in Pescara, the children of IL VOLO.

Occasion, the stage of the tour, for the concert at the Civitella di Chieti, before going on stage, Ignazio Boschetto, the Abruzzese Gianluca Ginoble and Piero Barone, wanted to meet the small children who in these days, are hospitalized in the structure of Pescara.

Among small gifts, photos and hugs, a moment of true solidarity among those who suffer.

I= We do a little, but we know that it is worth a lot for these children, and it is a pleasure every time, to be able to come here to Pescara and thanks to AGBE (Association Parents Emopathic Children) that gives us this opportunity.
Woman = Gianluca, for you Pescara and Abruzzo, have a special value.
G = Absolutely, then I adapt to what Ignazio said and what we want to do is give strength to children, and especially to families, being close to them with a few gestures, for us it is important.

Not only 02

P = There is nothing more beautiful than sharing our passion, we are extremely lucky, because there is nothing more beautiful than seeing the people who look at you and smile at you.

A gesture of great significance for the AGBE, which accompanies children and families, in the difficult moments of their lives. Achille Di Paolo, is its president.

AdP = We are proud to have these guys, who support us every time. Whenever they are in the area, in Pescara, even in the Marche, a visit always make a visit to us. They fill us with joy and above all, they make our children smile and this is very important.

P = We have to thank heaven every day, for what we are experiencing right now, we are all extremely lucky, but we don’t realize it. These experiences give you a strength that fills your heart and makes you understand so much about life.
I = It’s nice, when you can give a smile to younger children, it’s always a beautiful thing. Besides, I am one who tries not to see only the tragedy, today we live in the present and tomorrow, we will worry, when it will be tomorrow.
Today we are here, in the present and we are with these young people and we try to give them a smile now.

Not only 03

G= I am very close, like Ignazio and Piero, to AGBE, we thank them for all the work they do every day, to stay close to these children, and their parents, who need support, above all moral support. Children are naturally unaware of what is happening, but parents, it is clear that they need as much strength. We promise to return, this time too, absolutely, every time the boys, Ignazio and Piero, are here in the area, for a concert, or whatever, we promise to come back, to give you a smile too, to stay together, which is the most important thing.

And here is the AGBE video of the visit of IL VOLO.

Also these days, Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio, have also given this special message.

I = A few days ago we heard about a sad story, we met a little girl, her name is Jo. She needs an intervention at the heels, this intervention can only be done in America at a cost of around 500,000 euros. We are here, to raise awareness, people like us, who can help us, even with little.
P = For more information, go to the Facebook page, “Jo’s dreams”.
G = We can help this little girl, who needs all of us, please…

Not only 04

Below are the donation codes from Jo’s photo enlarged.

Not_only_05_codes

This is the least known part of our boys, but it is a part that does them much honor.
Always look to those less fortunate than you.
Try to give a smile to those who don’t want to smile.

What a big heart. ❤️

Thank you guys!

Sweetness 10

Sweetness 11

But now I want to talk about another very sweet thing, let’s call it a sweet memory.

About a year ago, in May 2018, I told you that IL VOLO had received a nice prize called ARTE E CULTURA. They were in Bagnaia, in Tuscany, and the award was given by Mrs. Marisa Monti Riffeser, here is the picture.

Sweetness 12

Mrs. Monti Riffeser, has held the figure of majority shareholder and president of the group Poligrafici Editoriale, in short, a very important person.

During the award ceremony, Piero explained how IL VOLO personally met the lady, by pure chance.

She was on an air flight and could not open a bottle of water.

Piero who was behind her, saw her in trouble, he offered to help her and opened the bottle, then when she got off the plane, Piero gave her his arm because she could get off the ladder easier. Piero did not know the lady, but instead, she knew very well who those three boys were and so she told to Piero, “Mr. Barone you, besides being a great artist, are a great person”.

From that moment a beautiful friendship was born between Mrs. Monti Riffeser and IL VOLO, and this friendship culminated last year with the award ceremony in Bagnaia.

I bought the MUSICA CD in the Deluxe version and inside there are several photos of the guys. At the end of the booklet, there are three single photos, where each of the boys have written thanks. In the photo of Piero, among the various thanks, there is this writing:

“A very special thank you to a great person Mrs. Marisa Monti Riffeser.”

The CD was released for sale on February 22nd.

Unfortunately, Mrs. Monti Riffeser passed away a few days earlier.

The announcement was given in the newspapers and among the various announcements there was also this:

Sweetness 13

It says:

Michele Torpedine, Il VOLO, Barbara Vitali, Eliana Dalila Biondi, embrace Andrea, with his sons Sara, Matteo and Bruno.

They remember the smile, the passion and the enthusiasm of Signora Marisa Monti Riffeser, grateful to have had the honor of meeting her.

and this:

Sweetness 14

A passionate greeting to Mrs. Marisa Monti Riffeser, we will always follow her valuable advice, and we will keep for example her enthusiasm.

We add an affectionate hug to Andrea with his sons Sara, Matteo and Bruno.

Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, Gianluca Ginoble – IL VOLO.

Sweetness 15

In short, these guys, as well as being good singers, humble and special guys are also very very sweet …. there are no words !!
