On 6 May 2023, Il Volo was a guest in two television programs broadcast at the same time, one on Rai1 and one on Canale 5.
The one on RAI1 was a repeat of a program dedicated to Lucio Dalla (he wrote Caruso), recorded in the Arena and broadcast on TV exactly on June 3, 2022. That evening I was in the Arena for an Il Volo concert and therefore I didn’t see it this evening, and I never sent you the video of the only song sung by Il Volo and exactly: CARUSO. So I take this opportunity to present it to you now.
So I dedicated myself to watching the AMICI broadcast on Canale 5, to see the moment of Il Volo. You know that AMICI is a program where young people dedicated to singing and dancing are selected, it’s a kind of school and at the end there is the final exam where the winner of the program is elected by elimination, in short, a talent show.

Our boys also came out of a similar program, but let me tell you that there is a notable difference between the singing talent of those who showed up years ago.
In particularly the young singer, those that nowadays are pushed forward by record companies, they have anonymous voices and no intonation, often they are out of tune, but the record companies seek guys who focus on the image not on singing ability and often is not a “clean” image, in short, guys who are sometimes insolent, rude and also lacking in talent, unfortunately, and often without particular singing skills to exhibit!!!
I want to emphasize that this is my opinion, but I’m realizing from the many comments that people are opening their eyes and ears and are also very indignant about the choices of the judges, and the record companies ……. surely something is changing in people’s tastes and the praise to Il Volo and their voices and also to their way of being, in the comments, this time, were unanimous and this makes me very happy.
I had to wait for the whole broadcast to see them, practically midnight had already struck and finally here they are, beautiful, dressed differently, but still elegant, and Ignazio……….. you look much better in that type of trousers!! 😉
They presented a short medley of three solo songs, mirroring their different genres.
Ignazio started proposing “When the Party’s Over” by Billie Eilish. Gianluca proposed “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Queen, yes that’s it, Roz!! And Piero, a short piece of “E lucean le stelle” from Tosca.
And finally, all together “GRANDE AMORE”!!
At the end of their performance, the boys and Maria, recalled the two concerts they had just held in the Arena and said that they will be broadcast on Canale 5 on May 27th and June 3rd.
Now the dates seem official. A little more patience and we can see them again.
All three then went to greet the judges and teachers of the show. ☺
There is nothing to say, three beautiful performances, Il Volo is also this, three good singers, with excellent voices, three different personalities, but which then come together in the best.
There will still be a lot to discover about them and they will only be good things, I’m sure.
There is not a moment of rest for Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero. They returned on 29 November from Israel, arriving in Milan and in the evening of the same day they had a private event, a concert in the beautiful Milan Cathedral.

On 29 November 2018, exactly 4 years ago, Il Volo held a concert in the Milan Cathedral. The concert was planned by Mediolanum Bank and its founder Mr. Ennio Doris.
In this photo, you can see Mr. Ennio Doris and his wife in 2018 congratulating Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero. Mr. Doris has always admired the beautiful voices of Il Volo.
A year ago, on November 24, 2021, Mr. Ennio Doris died, and Mediolanum Bank, in memory of its founder, wanted this concert.
At the concert, only people with an invitation from Mediolanum Bank were present. The event was called: MUSIC IN THE HEART.
It wasn’t a simple concert, it was also done with a noble reason: a fundraiser, as communicated by the Mediolanum Foundation.
In the splendid setting of the Milan Cathedral, dear to the President Ennio Doris, Banca Mediolanum continues, in his memory and one year after his death, to support the Mediolanum Foundation.
The funds raised will be used to support the “Families in emergency” project to help 1,000 children thanks to donations that will be destined for Istituto Beata Vergine Addolorata and Associazione San Fedele, two historic realities in the Milan area, which are committed to restoring dignity and autonomy to vulnerable families.
Accommodation will be made available, foodstuffs and clothing distributed, treatments and medical supplies offered to Italian and foreign families in conditions of great hardship.
It is possible to contribute by bank transfer to the current account held by the Mediolanum Onlus Foundation using:
– IBAN: IT68C0306234210000000417750 – causal: “CONCERT IN DUOMO – FAMILIES IN EMERGENCY”
It was certainly a beautiful event, but unfortunately there aren’t many videos or photos, being a private event, so I’m attaching what I found.
Photos from Maestro Grani before the concert ….
and during the concert.
With them also a children’s choir, “I Piccoli Cantori di Milano”.
Here is the list of songs performed:
Carols the Bells (choir I Piccoli Cantori di Milano) Silent Night White Christmas Nessun Dorma SE, Cinema Paradiso E più ti penso Tu scendi dalle stelle Panis Angelicus My Way Ave Maria Mater Misericordiae O Holy Night Amazing Grace Adeste Fideles War is Over (with choir) Feliz Navidad (with choir)
And here they are together with some members of the orchestra.
Beautiful event, too bad that we were not able to see it.
Surely it must have been wonderful to be able to hear your beautiful voices within the walls of the Milan Cathedral.
But on Sunday 4 December, in the afternoon, there is already another engagement, they will be guests on AMICI on Canale 5.
But you never stop??
And in fact, here they are on the AMICI show.
AMICI is a program where the kids who participate highlight their talent for singing and dancing, in short, a talent show. It is a program very popular with very young people.
Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca enter after a nice video promo, and then they get in three positions to watch and comment on the performances of the various boys. At the end of the video, you will also find the performance of Il Volo singing HAPPY CHRISTMAS, War is Over.
At the end of the song, Piero recalls the dates of the three concerts in Italy and the concert on Canale 5 from Jerusalem.
Ignazio adds the following, addressed to the AMICI students:
“I wanted to tell you one thing, the greatest limit of ourselves, we are ourselves, until we stop believing. Never stop believing, never, never, never.
Well done everyone!!”
As you have certainly noticed, our boys are dressed in rather strange clothes, for them, but you must understand that AMICI is a program very popular with very young people and therefore Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca have shown, in their clothing, that they are not three young in very serious clothes, but wanting to get closer to the tastes of young people.
Even though they only sang one song, I liked their attitude at the end of going among the AMICI participants.
These are young people who hardly listen to Il Volo and don’t go to their concerts, so I like that Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero try to get closer to this type of audience that otherwise wouldn’t even listen to them.
After a few days we saw two very different realities of Il Volo:
Classic, elegant, mature in the event in the Duomo in Milan.
Sporty, relaxed, youthful, on the TV show AMICI.
But their voices are always the same, the voices that only Il Volo can have!!!

Come in and share the love of life, friends and Il Volo!
