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!

Il Volo Interview in Roccaraso ~~ All About Il Volo
From Beverly from <3 Il Volo <3 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. 😉
