Our Piero, a few days ago, woke up with the desire to make a joke on someone.

And who could it be, if not poor Ignazio ???

P = Igna, do me a courtesy ….. since Marta from the Press Office called me, and I had to do a video interview, you can do it, which I took this morning ….. I fell asleep …..

I = (Ignazio is very amazed, but he still hasn’t realized what happens, he doesn’t see Piero entirely).

Can you ask Gianluca to do it? Today I have to finish one thing.

P = No, Ignazio, Gianluca cannot. I fell asleep in the sun this morning.

(At this point Piero shows his face, greets Igna with his hand. Ignazio says an exclamation, then and Ignazio’s face is a mixture of amazement and concern 😁)

I put aloe vera ….. (Ignazio doesn’t know what to say, he’s open-mouthed) …. and now my skin is burning, it’s burning me.

I= But why can’t Gianluca?

P = I don’t know, Igna, in your opinion, with aloe vera, it passes.

I = Yes, yes, it must pass. Damn I had to finish one thing.

P = It is important.

I = Who is it with? (the interview)

P = Bho, I don’t know what to do. (Piero laughs, and bring his face closer)

I = Why are you laughing? (observes Piero’s face) But you are crazy.

P = I don’t know what to do “cumpa” (word in Sicilian dialect that is addressed to a friend). I have all scrapes.

I = Of course. But did you wear sunscreen?

P = The oil.

I = Then the oil reacted to you.

P = Sure !!! Good this face mask that I put, I recommend it.

(Piero laughs but Ignazio has not yet understood but begins to suspect).

I = But are you taking me for the bottoms ??? (big laugh by Piero) “Che facisti”. (Sicilian dialect to say “what have you done?”)

P = It’s the face mask. (keep laughing)

I = Bip Bip Bip  (series of censored words)  But is it a face mask?

P = Yes

I = You made me “scantare” (Sicilian word to say frighten). Cretin

P = Bye, bye, I love you!!

I = Bye.

On Sunday there was a call between Piero and Anastacia. I think you all know the good singer Anastacia.

Their dialogue is very beautiful, and this time no translation is needed, but for those who haven’t seen it, here is the video.

At the beginning Piero says: “Hi everyone, how are you and happy Sunday. Today is a beautiful sunny day. Today I will do a live with a special friend that you all know, but many do not know the human side of this fantastic woman, we have been friends for a long time and I wanted to share a Sunday chat with you. Many know who I’m talking about, here she is” :


Really interesting what was said by Piero and Anastacia, and as I’m curious, I went to look for the video of Budapest where Piero said he lost his voice. 

Poor Piero, in the first verse, Ignazio came to his aid, and more ahead,  played only the orchestra. Who knows what fear Piero had, and here it is the video:

And here is a video of a performance at the Arena di Verona, by IL VOLO and ANASTACIA.

Really fun.

Ignazio’s face was an open book, with his faces.

But be careful Piero, Ignazio will surely devise a way to return the joke to you. 

Very nice live between Anastacia and Piero, two good artists.

Il Volo Professional ~~ Recap Edition: Verona

Hey, Everyone!

Il Volo’s Summer Tour 2014 was a whirlwind that came right on the heels of a busy promotional tour in Italy–one literally ending a day or two before they hopped a plane to the US to begin the other.  Once the concerts started, all of your wonderful stories started pouring in, and the more professional news bits haven’t gotten as much attention as they normally would have.  Now that the tour is over (*sob*), we are going to try to catch up with these “Recap Editions” of Professional in between your tour stories.



We begin with Il Volo’s June 1 performance on “Arena Di Verona” that was aired on Rai1.  You may remember that The Guys performed with Anastacia and were really excited about it.

ilvolomusic: Going to #Verona.  Traveling is our hobby!

Uh…no kidding!  The Guys were very busy world travelers last week and have been keeping me on my toes trying to keep up.  It would be so much easier if I were traveling with them instead of catching up on my Twitter feed during breaks and after work…just saying….   😉   But since that’s not going to happen, I do my  best with what I have and will be on the run to their concert tonight as fast as social media will allow me.

They started in Milan in the beginning of the week for a show on RTL 102.5 radio.  I’m not going to waste any time commenting when you can watch for yourself.

Next, they jetted to Verona rehearsals for the Fetival Lirico.  They will be singing with the American singer simply known as, Anastacia, and they all seemed to get a kick out of her and are looking forward to the performance.  They also met up with Antonella, who will be hosting.

A second day in Verona started with a Press Conference about the upcoming show:

Rough Google Translation:
“For me, the television season ends at the Arena di Verona, which is always a thrill to present this event.”
He said Antonella Clerici on the evening of Sunday, June 1 will return to conduct at La Scala in the amphitheater “Arena di Verona in 2014 the show is about to begin,” which will be broadcast live on Rai Uno starting at 21:20.
The event was presented today IN town hall: Anastacia, Massimo Ranieri, The Voilo, Jesus Christ Superstar with the legendary Ted Neeley, Notre Dame de Paris by Richard Cocciante will be the ‘star’ of the evening with the orchestra, the choir and the Ballet of the Arena.

“It ‘a great event broadcasting – said the mayor Flavio Tosi – who returns for the fifth year in a row and is an important showcase for opera in general, as well as the Arena for the festival, because the opera in Verona is a UNESCO World Heritage “.

The artistic director Gianmarco Mazzi said that “the performance of Anastacia will be a cabinet button with Il Volo in a tribute to Elvis Presley with ‘O sole mio and’ I can not live without you. ‘(It’s Now or Never) Then she will sing” Stupid little things “from his latest album ‘Resurrection’, accompanied by the orchestra of the Arena. “
Recalling that in 2013 the show was watched by 5 million viewers in Italy and has already been requested again this year by many countries, the superintendent by the Fondazione Arena, Francesco Girondins, he added that “in this issue back to the formula pop- opera, with an international cast that we hope will confirm the success of the opera festival, which is 101 years old, as was the case last year edition of the centenary. “

“I think the public will be affected – said Riccardo Cocciante – offering songs of ‘Notre Dame de Paris’ in English, French, Russian and Korean, to give a global dimension in that path started 15 years ago. I never wanted to establish a musical, but rather a popular work: it is an attempt to communicate with a young audience with a century that has changed the way we make music and to hear, looking for a bridge, a link between a glorious past com ‘ is the opera music and a bellisismo present. “

From Verona, they flew to London for a recording session at Abbey Road Studios — something they seemed quite excited about…

I know I will be very excited to hear what amazing work went on there — hopefully soon!


Just for Fun

Another interview from The Guys’ time in Miami has surfaced, and it has brought a bit of buzz with it.  I’ve seen several of you mention it here, and I definitely got a kick out of it when LiJoy pointed it out to me.  For me, it highlighted that family isn’t all about biology; family is whomever you decide it is.  And our guys are definitely brothers in all the most important senses of the word.  Thanks to All About Il Volo for the translation.  Enjoy!
