During the Sanremo period, many articles were published on Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca. Among the many, this one in particular has aroused my curiosity and I hope yours too.
Taken from Donna Fanpage:
Over the years, the guys from Il Volo have changed their style: at the beginning of their career they were just teenagers, a bit chubby and awkward but then, over time, they changed image and style, showing extreme safety, taking care of their physical form and the look, which ranges from super-elegant dark suits, to official events, complete with ties and bow ties,
to casual and trendy clothing that showed off at the Premios Juventud awards ceremony, held at the Watsco Center in Miami in July 2018, always paying maximum attention to their appearance.
In 2015, on the stage of the Ariston IL VOLO triumphs with the song “Grande Amore” but also with the best of Emporio Armani’s Made in Italy.
In the same period on his profile, Gianluca tagged himself in Via Manzoni 31. The address corresponds to the Milanese workshop of Giorgio Armani and the location is just a dressing room.
But even without tags, the look would have been unmistakable:
Basic t-shirts and trousers with darts and sports pockets scream the style of King George.
And for the second photo another Armani classic: gray.
Leather jacket with slightly rock tones, trousers with tubular leg and British style lace-ups. Gianluca is not new to these clothes: on the stage of the Ariston, in fact, the three boys showed off a look by Emporio Armani. Their image has been studied ad hoc according to a game of contrasts: the lyric tradition that wears leather jackets. No jacket, tie or bow tie (reserved for the final): the classic takes on the look again, especially if the protagonists in these scenes are little more than twenty years old.
Relations with Armani have always been very friendly. Armani has always been a good choice for them.
Milan Fashion Week 2015 Invited to the Armani fashion show: Il Volo

Also for the 2015 Eurovision, IL VOLO chooses ARMANI.
During the video, as they have done several times on several occasions, they will wear the new EA7 sneakers (Emporio Armani). The set of the new video will be the beautiful Arena of Verona,
Even for the first night of Notte Magica in Florence, IL VOLO chooses Armani.
The 2017 NOTTE MAGICA tour is about to begin, the boys visit the Lardini tailoring, here with Brenna Lardini.
During the Notte Magica tour, they will always wear Lardini suits, marked with a flower-shaped brooch, placed on the lapel of the jacket.
But we arrive at Sanremo 2019.
IL VOLO, on the red carpet of the Ariston, parades with clothes designed by Manuel Ritz: the brand has joined the three young tenors for the return of the Ariston to the stage and their 10-year career. For the occasion, they wore tuxedos from the Evening line and jackets from the main collection.
We arrive at the three evenings of Sanremo 2019.
Here are some of the comments:
Very elegant as always the singers of the trio IL VOLO, with pinstriped suits and Emporio Armani tuxedos.
IL VOLO in Armani.
The look of IL VOLO, of the second evening, convinces less.
Those baggy pants, too baggy.
IL VOLO in Emporio Armani
This evening we must reject the look of the three tenors who appear on stage with outfits that are too pompous and excessive for their young age. Either too casual or too elegant and baroque like in the final, a middle way isn’t it? (taken from Donna Fanpage)
This is my opinion.
I loved the velvet jackets by Lardini, but my opinion is that when they wear Armani, they are simply unbeatable, especially in this outfit.
On March 19, IL VOLO was a guest at the famous Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, for the SECOND BRAVO AWARDS ceremony.
For those who could not follow the whole event, let’s recap everything from the beginning.
Monday 18 March, departure for Moscow.
In this video, the usual Ignazio joker on the plane says he wanted to try to read the safety instructions of the plane, but says it’s a little complicated (they are written in Cyrillic) !!!!
And then he says, “We’re in Moscow.”
Here they are on arrival, with some fans.
In this video Piero says:
“I just arrived in my room and Barbara gave me the wonderful news that in half an hour we have the official tests for tomorrow, so we have to run to the theater.”
This photo was posted by Piero, and shows the theater in its beauty.
And here we are on the big day, the boys are simply beautiful !!
I would say that guys take our breath away because they are elegant and beautiful. They wear Armani, and they wear it just fine !!
And here we are at the time of the event ….. the curtain rises, IL VOLO sings “Libiam de’ lieti calici” from Traviata.
Too short, all over, good as always.
What is surprising is that these guys go from a pop program to a classic program with such a disarming ease.
But let’s enjoy some more shots.
Reposted from @bravopremia – Yesterday, the Second BraVo Awards ceremony took place on the Bolshoi Theatre stage. We are pleased to share with you some photos from the red carpet, which brought together the best artists: opera and ballet stars, world movie stars, guests and participants of the ceremony.
Here they are with Alessandro Safina, an Italian crossover singer.
Like all good things, end soon, and they are already there when they return.
Piero says: “We are in Rome.”
Ok guys, go on like this, fascinate everyone with your skill and your charisma.
You have added dates to your tour that becomes, always longer, you will also be in Russia and Hungary ……. but here, everyone is waiting for the dates for the Canada and USA tour !!!!
The chaos caused by the videos of the press room journalists in Sanremo has not yet subsided.
Today all the radio and TV programs have spoken about IL VOLO and the injustice suffered.
Many famous people in Italy have taken a position defending the boys.
The boys did not intervene in any transmission, and their attitude aroused great admiration from many people. There are comments that come also from many who were not their fans, but now take their defense.
Among the many, what has made me a lot of effect is this of Michele Monina.
He is a critic who has always written bad things, even very bad and offensive on our boys. He had never met Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca and in the early days of Sanremo, he had had a long interview with them. He liked them a lot and he understood what kind of people they are. At the end of the interview he said that he liked them a lot, even if they sing a kind of music that he does not like.
Today Monina, after reading what happened in the press room has published this nice video of the boys and has commented:
“The moment when it comes out that a part of the Press Room has insulted the boys of Il Volo, here is the moment we met. The criticisms can be made, but we do not hide ourselves … Ah, best wishes Gianluca Ginoble!”
And this is what Alessandro Quarta said, the violinist with whom they made the duet.
“Being on the stage of Sanremo with Il Volo was a blow of crazy and wonderful emotion, we found ourselves right away, the charge was wonderful.
I really like the guys from Il Volo, they are the only international Italian artists. They are loved all over the world. As an Italian and a musician it is important. We invented everything, we Italians, from notes to instruments. We do not forget it.
We are sons of Bel Canto.
We are not ashamed of being Italian.”
But as I said, things have not yet settled, there is still a lot of rage for the unfair treatment suffered by IL VOLO and today in an interview with a radio, Michele Torpedine, has confirmed the desire of the three singers to pass to legal proceedings against journalists who have insulted them in the press room, while reading the Festival ranking.
Yesterday evening, while I was writing the post, I randomly listened to the TV and I came across a program, usually of politics, where instead they talked about Sanremo, and then I immediately listened well.
The topic was, of course, the video of the press room.
The conductor of the evening Nicola Porro, has made specific questions to the journalist in the studio, Paolo Giordano, who was present in the press room of Sanremo.
Paolo Giordano, four years ago, gave very low votes to IL VOLO, but then a couple of years later, knowing them, he had changed his mind about them and then, afterward he always spoke well.
After listening to the questions asked by Porro to Paolo Giordano, I asked my friend, Daniela Ci, to extract from the whole video of the evening, only the piece concerning the questions on IL VOLO, and here’s what was said:
NP = Reply to me please Paul, is it true that there was an insult against IL VOLO? What have they told the guys from IL VOLO that they were shit?
That’s true, you were there, you’re an eyewitness, was there this thing?
PG = Yes, I heard it, it was there, and I disagree because I’m not like that.
man in the studio = Only the person who pronounced it will answer for this.
woman in the studio = Even others, they imitated and ridiculed them.
NP = Paolo Giordano, you have to explain something, you are the critic of IL GIORNALE …… but there was a particular climate against IL VOLO, because they were too perfect, or against this ULTIMO, in the press room? Was there the feeling you saw, that it was independent of the music? It’s a question I ask you and I trust what you tell me.
PG = Against IL VOLO there is a fairly widespread prejudice, for years, practically since they were born.Against ULTIMO, no.
All this makes me angry even more, because it was a situation that we fans knew very well, while not explaining why there is this attitude.
But seeing this confirmed by a journalist is really terrible.
This confirms that ULTIMO was not penalized by the jury of the press room, but only by the jury of honor who gave only a sixth place to ULTIMO in the evening of the duets. Instead IL VOLO was penalized by both juries, the duet took the lowest place, so I say that if the juries had not penalized IL VOLO so, it would probably still be in first place.
ANGER, ANGER AND STILL ANGER
All this history, will still have a train, but in the meantime let’s enjoy the moment of the proclamation of the three winners.
And we do a little gossip ….. our boys were wearing ARMANI.
Moreover, Radio Airplay tells us that the song of IL VOLO is broadcast in 8 countries of the world: Bulgaria-Croatia-France-Greece-Italy-Malta-Switzerland-Hungary.
Roccaraso is over and The Guys are as busy as ever, attending the Armani show during Fashion Week and having the Porta a Porta special airing tonight (stayed tuned for anything I can find about those events).
My article today is a little disjointed. I’m sorry; I lost track of which videos I posted in which order. Enjoy them all!
From Beverly from ❤ Il Volo ❤ Pittsburgh Fan Club:
“This video is from the start of the concert in Roccaraso on June 18. Our guys announced that the concert was being dedicated to little Iaia (Yaya), who has been undergoing treatment for Nueroblastoma (a cancer which generally originates in the adrenal glands). She desperately needed treatment in the US. After the people of Abruzzo (the region in which Iaia’s family lives) began the campaign “Un Sogno Di Iaia” (Iaia’s Dream), with the help of Il Volo (more so Gianluca, himself being from Abruzzo), she and her family were able to travel to Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NY and she received the treatment she needed. The ever-compassionate and tender-hearted Gianluca is visibly quite emotional, and his sweet brother Ignazio comforts him. Bless his heart’!”
Roccaraso is a town and commune of the province of L’Aquila in the Abruzzo region of central Italy, and boasts some of the best downhill and cross country ski runs around. It is beautiful, but the thought of winter gives me chest pain. 😉
