Personally Speaking ~ These Are A Few Of Their Favorite Things ~ Mary Bohling

Everyone has some favorite things.  Our Il Volo guys are very open about sharing some of their favorites with us, their fans.  The following is in my words–what I guess they might say.  There is no claim of authenticity.


Okay, here are some of my favorite things….

Going fast.  I love to go fast whether driving my Bentley or cruising around Naro on my scooter.  If it weren’t for my passion for bringing our music around the world, I would have wanted to be a race car driver.


A lot of my favorite activities are water based….whether I’m ON the water on a jet ski or a boat, or IN the water diving and swimming, or even UNDER the water scuba diving, the sea is a big part of my life.


In the fast paced scheme of things, meditation helps to keep me balanced—absorbing the peacefulness of a natural setting all by myself is a favorite thing to do.


Home and family are at the top of my list of favorite things, and now that I have my own home, sometimes I want to take some time there alone just relaxing.


Physical activity is very important to me.  Working out at the gym, playing tennis or soccer, biking and bowling are all favorites.


So, these are just a few of my favorite things.  Life is so full of wonderful experiences it would be hard to name them all.  But I must say that Gian, Igna, my beautiful family and the Il Volo fans are all favorite things.



A few of my favorite things….hmm, well…

I love soccer.  I always follow the Italian team, but most of all I love to play the game myself.  A highlight of my soccer career was making the goal that helped to win the game in Turin.


Piero has shown me the value of working out at the gym, and it has become a favorite thing for me to do.  Of course I want to look good in my speedos when I go to the beach.  I always keep my phone handy while on the machines at the gym just in case an important call comes in.



Spending time with brother Ernie is a favorite pastime.  In spite of the difference in our ages, we are great friends.  Now that he is older he often goes along on the world tours.


My phone has become one of my favorite things since I am away from home so much.  I need to stay in touch with the important people in my life….Mom, Dad, Ernie and Martina.  How could I ever get along without it?


When I want to relax and have fun I may head to the beach.  It’s my favorite place in the summer.  Whether sunning, swimming, playing beach volley ball or soccer it’s where I want to be.


Can’t close without mentioning these favorites: my Il Volo brothers Piero and Igazio, my family and all of the Ilvolover fans.


IGNAZIO  tells us…..

My favorite things?

I’ve always been crazy about animals, and recently have acquired the beginnings of my menagerie.  It started with Walter and Buddy.  I love to ride, and galloping along on Walter’s back is a favorite way to unwind.  Buddy was my first puppy, and he is so much fun that he now has a brother.  Playing with the dogs is another favorite way to relax.  If I weren’t so passionate about the musical career of Il Volo I think I would have become a veterinarian.



I think that playing the drums is a favorite thing to do, because it allows me to really let myself go and feel the beat of the music while being as noisy as I want to be.  I could be a professional drummer if I ever gave up singing, which I won’t of course, because it’s my most favorite thing.


When I’m really craving speed, I may turn to my “hog.”  Racing around the countryside  is a favorite thing to do.  Sometimes I just need FAST and LOUD.


My favorite stalker is a very determined woman.  She seems to show up wherever I am.  She is partial to dimples and doesn’t miss an opportunity to get in a kiss whenever she can.  If Allesandra and  I ever decide to go our separate ways, I’m sure that Miss Marie will be waiting for me.



Also must include in my favorites: my devoted family, the Il Volo fans, and my adopted brothers, Piero and Gianluca.


I think the guys would agree with Robert Louis Stevenson when he wrote, “The world is so full of a number of things, I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.”


Guys, you make us happy, and you are three of our FAVORITE THINGS.

Today I came across this old video of Ignatius who is likeable.  At one point he says, “but you’re telling me all the names of the phone book? and everyone laughs.

Also from Daniela:

On this day of national mourning I wanted to post this in the comments wrote very beautiful and meaningful done by fans of the flight as us.
