EVENTS IN THE FIRST HALF OF FEBRUARY by Daniela

On February 12, Il Volo was a guest on the German TV show ZDF. Here they are upon their arrival in Berlin.

Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero left Italy for Germany on Gianluca’s birthday, already 27 years old for him.
Our “boys” are young men, but Gian without a beard does not look his age at all. Poor Gianluca, he couldn’t even celebrate his birthday with his family, but he celebrated with his two fraternal friends Piero and Ignazio.

The show titled “Die Giovanni Zarrella show”, is hosted by Giovanni Zarrella, who is an Italian naturalized German singer, showman and dancer.
Born to Italian parents in Germany and raised there, he is active and well known, essentially in German-speaking countries.
So here is the performance of Il Volo.
Please click on the photo below to view the video.

(I will try to translate what was said after the performance. I don’t know German, but I try to interpret from the answers what was asked.)
GZ = Ladies and Gentlemen: Il Volo.
Great guys! (applause)
Nice to meet you, how nice to see you.
I + P = Hello everyone.
GIAN = Good evening everyone.
IGNAZIO = I can’t speak German.
GZ = You don’t speak German.
IGNAZIO = No, I can only tell you a few sentences.
GZ = It doesn’t matter, there are those who translate.
I am very happy to have you here, (to Gianluca) was it your birthday yesterday? (Applause)
GIAN = Yes, yes, 27 years old.
GZ = 27, you could be my son!!
PIERO = We want to say something really important, that we really feel in our hearts.
Coming here, in Germany, to see an Italian, conducting his own TV program, is truly fantastic.
GZ = Thanks a lot guys.
GIAN = We can say that Giovanni Zarrella is a pride, not only for Germany, but also for Italy, and it’s beautiful!
GZ = Thanks a lot guys, what a thrill. Thanks again.
Guys, 10 years ago, you started singing around the world, but for two years there has been a break up (Covid), and not much has been done in this time. I didn’t have time for gardening, now I have some reconstructed gardens. What did you do at the time?
IGNAZIO = Surely we have had the opportunity to give space to creativity. We had to think about the time that was coming and we thought about paying a tribute to Ennio Morricone, a great teacher of whom we are very proud and for Italy he is like a flag.
PIERO = We sang all his most important melodies, from “L’estasi dell’Oro”, to “Nuovo Cinema Paradiso”, to “Mission”, melodies known all over the world and some sung for the first time.
GZ = And all these fantastic melodies, sung for the first time by these fantastic singers, you will find them on their latest album. I am so glad to have seen you this evening.
IGNAZIO = Then during the pandemic we also ate a lot, me in particular. 😁
GZ = Soon back on tour, when are you leaving for America?
When will you return to Germany?
GIAN = We will be back here in Germany soon, after two years of pandemic, as you (to the audience) want to go back to see concerts, we want to go back to doing them.
PIERO = We will be here on June 25th, the day after my birthday, in Frankfurt and on the 26th in Dusseldorf.
GZ = Guys it was a pleasure. Ladies and gentlemen: Il Volo, thank you guys, grazie mille!!
And this comment was posted by Giovanni Zarrella, with a short video:
“Thanks a lot @ilvolomusic! 🇮🇹 Crazy voices and a great version of the classic The Ecstasy of Gold! 😍 We got goosebumps and you? 👏
These days, also, the second series of the TV drama has started: MAKARI, whose theme song was written by Ignazio Boschetto and sung by Il Volo.
The first series was very successful, but the first episode of the second series also had the highest television ratings.
Here is a summary of what the online newspaper DIRETTA SICILIA wrote, about the theme song:
Click here to read the article in Diretta Sicilia.
MÀKARI TRIUMPHS ON RAI 1, THE BEAUTIFUL  THEME SONG IS SUNG BY IL VOLO.
Màkari is not surprising only for the story of Saverio Lamanna (the protagonist). It is a product also characterized by the extraordinary participation of Ignazio Boschetto.
The Il Volo singer has in fact written the theme song of the same name for the fiction, which also marked the first season. “An honor for me to have written it – said the artist to the Giornale di Sicilia – is a song that tells about my Sicily where I return every year in the summer.”
The other two members of the group, Gianluca Ginoble and Piero Barone, sing the song with him and said they were “proud of the work Ignazio did.”

Il Volomusic posted this comment:
“Dear friends of Màkari, Saverio Lamanna’s investigations are back and we too, with the initials theme song you loved so much, and for this we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Màkari is home and our heart sings for you.”
So let’s listen to the beautiful song with the video of the second series. ❤❤❤
Please click on the photo below to view the video.
About Màkari.
I have been pointed out to these three beautiful videos, published by Los Volos Mexico, where only the single voices of Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero are heard singing the song. I find them fantastic, and you?
Please click on the photo below to view the Gianluca’s video from Los Volos Mexico.

 

Grazie mille to Los Volos Mexico! ❤❤❤
But surely this is the news that made me most proud of our boys.
On Sunday 7 February, on RAI 1 in a television program entitled I FATTI VOSTRI, a beautiful interview with Pope Francis was broadcast.
Among the various questions, one concerned music, because the Pope was photographed by the paparazzi, while he was leaving a music record shop.
The Pope said he had not gone to buy records, but to bless the shop which is owned by friends. When asked what kind of music he listens to, the Pope said, without going into particular, that he listens to a lot of classical music and that he also likes tango (He is Argentine).
But the two journalists, who are very curious, intercepted a tweet made by Cardinal Franco Ravasi shortly before the start of Sanremo.
The cardinal’s comment goes like this:
“Sanremo 2022 is approaching and I have received another series of musical materials from Pope Francis. Best wishes to the Festival (Sanremo).
And in the video the vinyl of Il VOLO appears clearly visible.
Please click on the photo below to view the video.

Here Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio in audience with the Pope.

Excellent musical taste, Pope Francis, who knows if he will have heard the beautiful tango POR UNA CABEZA sung by Il Volo …….

That’s all for now.
Ignazio Piero and Gianluca are not very active in this period, I believe that all their attention is towards the tour, the dates are slowly approaching and we hope to have confirmation that everything can be done, in safety for everyone. We all desire for normality and to attend many good concerts !!!

IL VOLO to Storie Italiane by Daniela

Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero, are once again guests online, I translate briefly.

Eleonora Daniele, leads the program on RAI 1, Storie Italiane (Italian Stories), announces the arrival of Il Volo online, with these words:

“Italian artists, known all over the world, are three young, very young, who started from RAI 1.

They represent the new generation of great artists, but not only that, they have made very important appeals for the cities where they live. They are three and only Il Volo: Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio.”

After the greetings, Eleonora asks the boys, how they are experiencing this moment and what message they want to give people.

Gianluca replies that it is a difficult moment for everyone, something that has never been seen, and they try to be an example for young people by giving this message on their social profiles: to be strong, to stay at home, to be responsible, because nobody is immune. There are many people who are suffering not only in Italy, but all over the world.

They also had to cancel concerts and return ten days earlier to stay at home with their families.

So you all have to be responsible, respect above all for many people who are suffering, but also for doctors, nurses, who are saving lives and risking theirs.


Piero says that every morning we wake up looking for good news and this morning we start to glimpse a small light at the end of the tunnel.

This is thanks to our doctors, to the people who are helping us, but also to all of us, in the commitment that we are putting into all this.

The commitment of us artists, thanks to the notoriety, is to spread the messages like that of staying at home.

Piero confirms that Sicily is not well equipped in his hospitals, therefore he has proposed this fundraiser with other artists in order to purchase what is needed.


Ignazio says it is a moment of solidarity.

A great praise to all the doctors and nurses who are helping, they are showing great love, helping many people not knowing them, because they love their job and love their neighbor.

Italy is now more unique than ever, we have to be careful, stay at home, not just think about ourselves, but also about others, altruism is the key in these times.

Eleonora plays the song Hallelujah sung by Ignazio.

I FATTI 01

Then she asks the boys to perform a small song sung by them, and although there are small differences in connection times, the boys sing a verse of Grande Amore.

Ignazio wishes Eleonora well (she is going to have a baby) and she says that she will be a fan of Il Volo, as Mum is already.

Below is the photo of the victory of Sanremo 2015.

A big success.

Piero says that their way of exulting (jumping) is exaggerated and they laugh at this.

Ignazio remembers that at the Billboards, Gianluca was a grasshopper that kept jumping.

Gianluca says it is difficult to control emotions.

In the interview is shown the video of the victory of Sanremo and Eleonora says that they made Italy’s dream come true at that moment.

I FATTI 02

Piero says that they owe everything to the Italian cultural and musical heritage.

 

Eleonora introduces the video of Sanremo 2019, MUSICA CHE RESTA.

I FATTI 03

So she shows the videos of the American tour.

IL VOLO San Diego

After the video, Eleonora asks if any of the three found love.
Piero asks if she has another question …..
Ignazio says it’s nice to go around and sing …..
Gianluca does not speak, only a small smile. 😁

Last message from Piero, who publicly asks all people who arrive in Sicily, to communicate to the authorities their presence and to undergo quarantine (15 days) in isolation. This is very important and they also did it when they came back from America, and it is a fundamental thing.

Eleonora thanks Piero for remembering this, then thanks and affectionately greets Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio. She then announces the event that will be tonight, a concert with the online presence of many singers including IL VOLO.

 

….. and what about this beautiful Ave Maria that Piero gave us yesterday?

Thanks Piero. ❤️

And what about this video posted today by Ignazio?

“I wish that together we would remember, but above all we would not forget, who will not be able to see the end. It is only a minute and a half to pray together with you, in the way I prefer.”

Soon it will end….and a hug, a caress, a kiss will be the most PRECIOUS that life gave us.

 

Simply ….. you are UNIQUE !!!
