SANREMO ON THE ROAD by Daniela

In Italy, February is considered the month of Sanremo.
This year, due to the pandemic, Sanremo will be there, but it has been scheduled for early March, and will also be without an audience.
It is thanks to Sanremo that I really got to know and started following Il Volo.
But how many times have Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio been in Sanremo on the Ariston stage?
In reality, really many times, because the filming of TI LASCIO UNA CANZONE, took place right at the Ariston Theater, but now, we are talking only about Sanremo.

2010

In 2010, the running of the Sanremo festival was entrusted to Antonella Clerici.
As we all know, Antonella has always been proud of her three little tenors. That year in Sanremo there will be Queen Rania of Jordan and Antonella decides to pay homage to the Queen, with a beautiful little show of her three little tenors.

What little kids, but what big voices. So sweet, close to Queen Rania of Jordan and Antonella.
They still had a long way to go and a lot of study to face.

2015

2015 is the year of triumph. A more than deserved victory and popularity also in Italy, where they were not so well known.
Here are our guys on the Sanremo red carpet, before the singing competitions begin.

The first evening was the consecration.

An explosion of joy and skill, welcomed the audience who was enchanted !!
Gianluca’s tears of emotion … It was February 11, the day of his twentieth birthday !!
It was the beginning of their worldwide adventure.

In the second evening, the evening dedicated to covers, Il Volo performed ANCORA.
Here is a short video.

Third evening, the decisive evening.
The boys, beautiful, elegant, excited.
Placido Domingo’s greetings arrive.
In the end, an explosion of applause.

And here is the beautiful video of the victory.
What a thrill, what a joy!
Right now I was in front of the TV too, I felt GRANDE AMORE for the first time, and it was love right away!

2018

In 2018 the conductor of Sanremo is Claudio Baglioni. He wants IL Volo as super guests.
Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca begin their performance with NESSUN DORMA.

As good as ever, they also receive a standing ovation.

Then, together with Claudio Baglioni, they sang SONG FOR YOU.
This performance, wanted by Baglioni, I did not like very much, I sincerely prefer this song as it is usually performed by Il Volo.

And finally, the beautiful song by Claudio Baglioni, LA VITA ADESSO, truly engaging.

2019

Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio have decided to present themselves as competitors again.
The race was beautiful, but the quality jury deliberately gave them very low, undeserved votes and then there was the scandal of the journalists who said bad words about Il Volo and recommended not to vote them so as not to let them win again.
Here they are upon their arrival in Sanremo, on the red carpet.
Left to right: Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio on the red carpet at Sanremo with confetti.
Instead their song MUSICA CHE RESTA was very popular with the audience and once again showed them so much love.

And then the night they sang with Alessandro Quarta and his fantastic violin. Very good, all the audience standing, lots of applause …. and the critics gave them the lowest rating …. incredible.

Despite all the low grades, Il Volo is lovingly supported by the home crowd and so in the end it comes third.
It was a nice roundup of appearances, but I’m sure there will be other opportunities to see Il Volo in Sanremo, both as guests and as competitors, because they can do it and because they certainly have the support of all of us- their fans who love them so much.

SANREMO , EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW by Daniela

Less than a month is left until the Sanremo Festival and as I feel you are interested in the event, I pass on the translation of how the various evenings will take place.

The 69th edition of the Festival of the Italian Song of Sanremo – which sees Claudio Baglioni’s artistic direction for the second year – will be broadcast on Rai1 from Tuesday, February 5 to Saturday, February 9, 2019 live from the Ariston Theater. The Festival will be divided into five evenings and, new this edition, will include a single race: there will be no more “champions” and “new proposals” but only artists who will compete on equal terms so that their song can achieve victory (two winners Sanremo Giovani – which will take place on 20 and 21 December – will enter the February 2019 competition).

sanremo 07

Therefore you understand that voting at home will have a great weight.

We will be able to vote 5 times from every telephone (fixed or portable).

You can also vote from Europe if you use a telephone card (also minimum rechargeable) of the TIM operator, VODAFONE, WIND, 3. It is also possible to vote by text message.

I’m finding out if people in the U.S. can vote by mobile phone and if the vote will be valid.

Sanremo Young, which was broadcast in December, was also visible in live streaming, I think it will also be done for the February race.

This news has just been published: For those who do not have the opportunity to see the Festival, there is an  alternative way to view it: watching the show in streaming, thanks to the RaiPlay platform, which is also completely free (however you must register).

I will keep you informed about live streaming and also about the possibility of voting.
