MI MANCHERAI: by GIANLUCA – Daniela

Cynthia from the Philippines, who is part of our crew, sent me this message:

“When I saw the video of “Mi Mancherai” for the first time, sung by Gianluca at the concert in Rome, I was no longer able to look at other things.

Every night I saw that video several times. I could not watch other videos or follow other posts, I was as bewitched by that performance.”

Mi Mancherai 01

“Gianluca’s execution of the song:
seamless
powerful
sublime
delicate

It fascinates me and takes my breath away.

Enters the depths of my soul.

It makes me cry … in a purifying way, purging the muck out and lets shine what is pure and true inside.”

Mi Mancherai 02

“Every note by Gianluca, every half note, every nuance, every breath … comes from the depths of his soul … truly honoring the music … giving (the) music (the) maximum respect …

I can only pay him homage, with so much dedication to his craft. What is kindled within me is that reverence to music, that awe…. ”

And here is the video that Cynthia is talking about.

Scrolling through the various comments, under this video, one immediately caught my attention:

Myron Heaton = I think the audience is on drugs – such small response ! This is one of Gianluca’s best songs ever and so beautifully done. This should have been shouts and tears and cheers. Bravo ! 

Gianluca is allowing his passion to show more and more these days. This is an example of that growth. From the shy kid 10 years ago to a stunning young man with exquisite musical heart.

Mi Mancherai 03

A friend of mine, Rita Spera, after attending the concert in Palermo, wrote these beautiful words about the execution of Gianluca.

With a tribute to Massimo Troisi, on the notes of the soundtrack of the film IL POSTINO by Bacalov, who received the Oscar for these music, Gianluca did not deny it, on the contrary, with “Aranjuez” he made me know the power of his voice, this time I saw and heard other aspects. He touched all the notes I never imagined could be sung, he modulated his voice like so many musical instruments, sweet deep and poignant before, in a crescendo then up to make his voice tremble inside me. Like rising from the ground and then descending down, sitting on the steps to end his enchanting performance.
Tears did not stop me from observing his elegance in his posture, and in his gestures, which were used as an ornament, to his song.

Thanks, my boy, for the beautiful emotions you make us live, and the surprises that you reserve for us.

Mi Mancherai 04

And here is the text of the beautiful song from the movie IL POSTINO

Beautiful Italian film, last work played and directed by Massimo Troisi, a good Italian actor who died prematurely due to a heart attack.

Candidate for 5 Oscars, got only the one for the soundtrack, by Bacalov. The words of the text are instead of Josh Groban.

MI MANCHERAI

Mi mancherai se te ne vai
Mi mancherá la tua serenitá
Le tue parole come canzoni al vento
E l’amore che ora porti via

Mi mancherai se te ne vai
Ora e per sempre non so come vivrei
E l’allegria, amica mia
Va via con te

Mi mancherai mi mancherai
Perché vai via?
Perché l’amore in te sé spento?
Perché, perché?
Non cambierá niente lo so
E dentro sento te

Mi mancherai mi mancherai
Perché vai via?
Perché l’amore in te sé spento?
Perché, perché?
Non cambierá niente lo so
E dentro sento che

Mi mancherà, l’immensità
dei nostri giorni e notti insieme a te
i tuoi sorrisi, quando si fa buio
la tua ingenuità, da bambina tu

Mi mancherai, amore mio
ti guardo e trovo vuoto dentro me

E l’allegria, amica mia
va via con te

Mi Mancherai 06

I’LL MISS YOU 

I’ll miss you if you leave
I’ll miss your serenity
Your words like songs in the wind
And the love that you take away
 
I’ll miss you if you leave
Now, forever, I do not know how to live
And the joy, my love,
Goes away with you
 
I’ll miss you, I’ll miss you
Why do you leave?
Because the love inside of you is dead
Why, oh Why?
Nothing will change, I know that
Inside of me, I feel you

I’ll miss you, I’ll miss you
Because you go away
Because the love in you is dead
Why, oh Why?
Nothing will change, I know that
Inside of me, I feel you

I’ll miss the immensity
Of our days and nights together
Yours smiles when it was dark
Your being naive like a small girl
 
I’ll miss you, my love
I look and I find emptiness inside of me
 
And the joy, my love
Goes away with you

Mi Mancherai 07

There is not much to add, this music is really poignant, the words touch the heart and the voice of Gianluca …… caresses us deep into the soul, creating strong emotions.

Impossible to resist such sweetness.

Bravo Gianluca !! ❤️

INTERVIEWS BY LUCA MAGGITTI by Daniela

Luca Maggitti is a good journalist who lives in Roseto degli Abruzzi. In these days of early August, he interviewed, for EMOZIONI MUSICA FESTIVAL, Gianluca Ginoble, Michele Torpedine and also Marino Bartoletti.

Of these three interventions, I will translate the most interesting moments.

Let’s start with GIANLUCA.

After the various initial pleasantries, where Luca Maggitti asks Gianluca the importance of his Abruzzo and thanks him for always bringing the knowledge of his land up high in the world, they remember together the first meeting with Massimo Ranieri, which took place in Roseto, again before Gianluca became part of IL VOLO.

Interviews 01

Luca asks Gianluca if Massimo Ranieri is an example for his life, as he is a singer, actor and director, and that’s what Gian answers.

GG= Surely Massimo Ranieri is a great example, he is a complete artist, but I, as you know, am a big fan of American music, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and they too were great actors.

I am closer to the type of music, but also to the type of acting, more American, but Massimo Ranieri, has always been an artist that I greatly admired.

Towards the end of the interview, Maggitti asks Gianluca the plans for the future of IL VOLO.

Gianluca replies that they are celebrating their 10-year career, with a tour that started in Japan and will end in the US, and the first date will be at Radio City Music Hall in New York, for the third time.

Interviews 02

And now let’s continue with the interesting parts of the interview with Michele Torpedine.

Maggitti asks Michele, why every year, he comes for a week in Roseto, what he likes about this place, since he could go anywhere, but he chooses to come here.

Michele answers that Roseto is his second city, perhaps more than the first, because in Bologna he lead a retired life, he live in a reserved manner. Here he has many friends, beyond the relationship with Gianluca, everyone loves him here, and for him that’s important.

Interviews 03

Maggitti shows the book RICOMINCIO DAI TRE and asks Torpedine for an explanation of his phrase “I love music, but not the world of music.”

Michele explains that there is a lot of ingratitude in the musical world and his book served to explain this fact.

Maggitti congratulates Michele, for his cover photo, of the book, confirming that it is a shot made by Gianluca.

Interviews 04

Michele admits that Gianluca is very good with the camera and confirms that the photos that Torpedine uses on his Facebook page are made by Gianluca.

Maggitti asks how important the figure of the manager is. Torpedine confirms that if there is a good relationship, the figure of the manager is of considerable importance. Below he talks about his experience with Pavarotti and the importance of having understood the success of combining classical music with pop music.

Interviews 05

But in my opinion, the interview where really important things were said, is this of the dear friend Marino Bartoletti.

At the beginning, Maggitti recalls the early days when Bertoletti came to Roseto, but then, confirming that for him this place has become a fixture, for him, he admits that the second reason for his coming is to re-embrace Gianluca Ginoble.
(His exact words.) “Everyone knows my respect for him, but I should say, my friendship, my affection for him.”

Maggitti’s question is very strong: “What has IL VOLO to do 11 consecutive world tours and still fills all the theaters and what is the appeal of you, great music expert and journalist, who talks about them as famous and well-liked in the world?”

Interviews 06

Bartoletti = I could answer you by reversing the question, that is, by asking me how there are still people (even our journalist colleagues) who still do not understand, this success of theirs and their talent. I admit, that I am attached to them by affection, friendship and admiration towards them, but they have everything that is asked of bel canto, skill, the ability to transmit the Italian genius abroad. But it’s the same Italian genius that should be better understood in Italy, and then I wonder, what else do these guys have to prove?

Interviews 07

They are boys who have reached their tenth year, and sold out everywhere, even here in Italy. I can only say that I admire them very much, that I admire their “spirit of sacrifice” which is extraordinary, because they could “sit on their laurels”, instead they continue to improve, to improve. This year they were very good, even in Sanremo, where they achieved third place, so very elegantly. I would like the Italian guys to look more like them, especially as the families of the Italian boys were more like the families of Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio, because I always say this publicly, that the strength of these guys is what they have behind them, family, culture, education, humility.

Interviews 08

I don’t know for you, but for me to read the beautiful and deserved words of Marino Bartoletti, towards IL VOLO, is like taking a sip of fresh and clear water, when you have a throat burned by thirst.

Thanks Marino, you are a true friend !!

THE BEAUTIFUL BARITONE by Daniela

Today I definitely want to tease the female consensus.

We all know that Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca are very good, and it is for all that we admire them a lot. But today I want to confirm another thing that is obvious to all ……. BUT HOW BEAUTIFUL IS OUR GIANLUCA ???

Gian 01

He is a very sweet and sensual beauty, but it is not only an end in itself, because all of us know that behind that beautiful face there is also an incredible voice, which goes deep into you and amazes you.

Gian 02

In reality, IL VOLO are all three handsome guys, but Gianluca has a style and elegance, for which he could be also a beautiful model or even a handsome actor.

These days, then, were published beautiful black and white photos that show Gianluca in all its beauty.

The shots were made by photographer Pier Costantini.

Gian 03

Those eyes, so beautiful and sincere, that can scrutinize you but that have also been often witnesses of warm tears coming from emotions that come from the heart.

Gian 04

That smile, perfect and disarming, blazing with perfect teeth.

Gian 05

These beautiful shots, have managed to make a very serious image of Gianluca, a thoughtful but charming man.

 Who does not know it, seeing these shots could immediately think “what a magnificent photo model …. is he an actor ???”

Gian 06

In reality, even when Gianluca lends himself to a simple selfie or to some shots made by fans, the photos are just as beautiful, perhaps less artistic but very natural and the beauty of Gianluca does not suffer at all.

Gian 07

This is Gianluca, a really nice guy, but also sincere, elegant, proud, sweet, sensual, generous and affectionate.

Congratulations Gianluca.

Il Volo Professional ~~ Gianluca Receives White Night of Sport Award

All the professional dealings of Il Volo
All the professional dealings of Il Volo

Hello!

An excerpt from Janis Rahner Black: Last night, Gianluca was in Pineto for the inauguration of the Notte Bianca dello Sport, dedicated to the memory of little Marco Calabretta. He was awarded this White Night of Sport Award as the guy who shines of everything Abruzzo!     source: original Facebook post

Marco died in September after a  soccer practice due to a heart malformation at the age of nine, prompting an investigation into the physician that medically cleared him for activity.  More than two thousand people attended his funeral.  It was proclaimed a day of mourning, the Pineto  did not play, and the Feast of St. Hilary was suspended.

As previously mentioned by Lydka,  the third edition of the Notte Bianca dello Sport and Sport Paralympic opened on July 23 and was attended not only by Gianluca, but by civil and military authorities as well.
