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).

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
