Our talented Valeria Bosch, gave us this beautiful story-summary of the path of our dear boys.
I translate it immediately and I renew my best wishes!!
A DREAM LONG 10 YEARS
There is a country on this earth which is called Vololandia: it is a country without walls, without borders, without limits of horizon, because it is everywhere, wherever there are women and men endowed with musical passion, sensitive to love, to beauty and harmony. This country is governed by three princes, all three very nice for the truth, but above all with an incomparable voice, a voice that makes the soul of those who listen to them fly above the clouds, up to the sky, a voice that it is more powerful than a bomb, because it does not destroy, but builds joy, love, and passion, as well as melancholy, emotion, tenderness …
When they were little more than children, the three princes, led by their mentor Michele, began to travel the world, from Canada to the United States, from Latin America to Australia and New Zealand, from Japan to Europe and their dear land, Italy. Just in Italy they debuted in 2009, participating in a talent of RAI, “TI LASCIO UNA CANZONE”, where for the first time they had enjoyed the joy of applause, their name known by the public, the pride of their image transmitted throughout the nation.
From there began their incredible adventure, a kind of dream that was difficult even to believe: they, the three kids from the Italian province, who conquered the world, an immediate success, thousands of copies of records sold, the celebrity, the their name that began to be known from one continent to another, and to bounce on all the media, including social media.
And in a vertiginous follow-up, a whole series of events that would have seemed unimaginable until a short time before, the participation in 2010, as unique Italians, to “We are the world for Haiti” with 85 internationally renowned artists; the trip the following year in Australia and New Zealand; in 2012 the invitation from a legend, Barbra Streisand, to participate in his tour “Back to Brooklyn”, and in December of the same year the performance of “We are Love” and “The World” in Oslo, before the Royals of Norway and Sweden, for the conferment of the Nobel Peace Prize to the European Union.
And in 2014 the Billboard victory for Latin Music, plus various Billboard and Grammy nominations, repeated gold and platinum records, collaborations with the most established names in music, Eros Ramazzotti, Placido Domingo, the Pooh, Laura Pausini, and the virtual duet with Elvis in “It’s Now or Never” in the posthumous album “If I Can Dream”. In December 2014 it was a particularly important event, not only because of the meaning it contained in itself, but because it marked a trend reversal for Il Volo with respect to the goals that until then had been set: from many foreign nations to Italy, to homeland, and right from its institutional heart, the Senate where they performed an unforgettable Christmas concert in the presence of the highest personalities of the State.
The rest is recent history, of the last three years, with the victory at Sanremo in 2015 and the song “Grande Amore” became a worldwide hit, with 138 million views on You tube; the “stolen victory” (stolen to them!) at the Eurovision in Vienna, where they are declared third, but in reality they are first in terms of public votes and where the prestigious “Marcel Bezancon” critics award is assigned to them by accredited journalists ; and then the appointments to UNICEF ambassadors, ambassadors of Abruzzo in the world, of Sicily in the world, of lyric for young people in the world (title given by the city of Verona).
But it is not over, a new leap in quality awaits them: 2016 sees the launch of the project “Notte Magica”, a tribute that the three young artists want to address, with admiration and respect, to the great tenors of the past Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and José Carreras. The project starts from the beautiful S.Croce di Firenze, precisely with the collaboration and support of one of the three great, the maestro Domingo, and will then continue with tours all over the world, in the most prestigious theaters of the major American and European cities and even in Japan, with cheering crowds, and places all exhausted, more and more numerous.
Often the three young princes, which the long tradition has turned them into brothers rather than friends, gather in Bologna, in their recording studio that is the beating heart of Vololandia, the forge where they forge their work and the products that in 2019 they will donate to the millions of admirers on the anniversary of the beginning of their successful union in trio. They often abandon themselves to memories and then, in front of their eyes, the images of what they have lived in these 10 years, the theaters always overflowing, the enthusiastic crowds, the audience standing in the frequent standing ovations, the contact with many authoritative people, the laurels obtained, the love shown to them by people of all ages, all races and all continents.
And now? ten years later? do you stop, did you struggle enough? not even for a dream, now it starts again, for new adventures, for new beaches, for new productions: because three princes that are called Il Volo cannot be stopped, they know that their audience awaits them because they need their closeness and their music , that reassures, that comforts, that keeps company, that makes the smile bloom on the lips.
Merry Christmas, guys of Il Volo, give us your melodies for a thousand years more!
I saw this article, and the title immediately attracted me and I read it.
I found it very interesting, and in some respects, this article confirms what we knew.
I will summarize the content because the article is very long and I will post photos of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca to make it less boring. 🙂
Music is always with us.Since mum hummed the lullaby, there is no sad or happy moment of life that passes in silence.
There is music for every moment of life, a party is not a party without background music and adolescence would not be the same without an accompanying soundtrack, to the point that just hearing a song of that time causes us to relive the emotions.
Two neuroscientists have discovered that for our brains MUSIC IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT THAN LANGUAGE: words came later.
Listening to a melody is not just pleasant. According to science, the notes enhance memory and make us more creative, but also healthier. It can lower blood pressure and heart rate, and reduce the rate of cholesterol in the blood.
Music is a kind of brain restorative.
Even in the office we collaborate more if there is music in the background.
A live concert could solve even the problems of social integration in complicated contexts, given that Arabs and Americans after listening to music together show greater understanding of each other.
Sharing music improves relationships.If you strive to find hits that appeals to the whole family communication will improve.
And it can become a therapy: the notes enhance the effects of medicines to lower the pressure with a reduction in heart rate and cholesterol in the blood also adds to the benefits.
Listening to music before, during and after an operation removes the anxiety that precedes surgery and reduces postoperative pain.
Analgesic and anti-anxiety effects have also been observed in cancer patients, who are less tired thanks to music during chemo and radiotherapy; while in those who have suffered a stroke, music accelerates recovery and improves mood and quality of life.
It could even be used as an anti-rejection drug.
Every musical genre has a different effect on the brain.
HEAVY METAL, this music is good for the angry, because it is a way to channel negative emotions.
JAZZ, is perfect for synchronizing brain and heart and relaxation.
RAPand HIP-HOP, is useful for those who are depressed.
POP, ideal for improving physical performance and feeling less tired.
CLASSIC, is the most effective in giving positive effects to the whole organism.
Here is the original article of which I made a summary.
What to say, I think we are more than happy to read that if we listen to the beautiful songs of our boys several times a day, they make a balsamic and also a healing effect on our body and mind.
Therefore we must not feel guilty if during our days we want to take a little of this sweet restorative medicine.
I would also say that the combination of POP-CLASSIC is perfect for us.
So, what are you waiting for ….. just put a CD ofIL VOLOand enjoy your life, and if you want to sharpen your sight, a nice video ofGianluca,IgnazioandPiero is good for your eyes and is good for your heart !!
Hello everyone, today I want to make you smile a little. 🙂
On Facebook, there is an Italian page dedicated to IL VOLO, and it’s called IL VOLOCOMIO, it’s a combination of IL VOLOand mental hospital (from us MANICOMIO), this already makes you understand that the things that are published on this page, they are “out of your mind” and sometimes really hilarious.
I asked them permission to publish some of their photos or post to you, because they often make you laugh!
Here is their video that makes us smile !!
In this photo, at the top there is written:
TODAY WE TALK ABOUT A VERY DIFFUSED DISEASE. (a “disease” that is widespread)
THAT WHICH MAKES US SAY, THAT NO ONE LIKES IL VOLO, AND THEN IN EVERY TRANSMISSION, THEY ARE THE MOST FOLLOWED.
These are the photos of our heart.
WHEN THEY ANNOUNCE THE NEW ALBUM ☺️
WHEN WE SEE A VIDEO WITHOUT AUDIO ☹️
WHEN THEY COMMUNICATE TO US THAT THE ALBUM IS READY 😄
In this photo, top …
I WILL NOT LISTEN TO IL VOLO FOR TODAY
CAN HIT ME AN ASTEROID
. . . the asteroid hit.
And now, IL VOLO in HOT version.
Poor Piero with those two behind that continue to laugh during the concert.
But the girls of IL VOLOCOMIO, also know how to make beautiful videos like this.
What do you think?
The girls of IL VOLOCOMIO, did you have a little smile?
Immediately after the performance the boys were interviewed by Gordon backstage.
After the pleasantries, Gordon says that it is the first time that IL VOLO has taken part in a RadioItalia concert (in reality, although it is only an Italian radio, it never transmits the songs of IL VOLO and NEVER invited them to their concerts, Daniela).
The boys confirm that they are happy to be there and they say the audience was singing well.
Gordon warns them that in the afternoon, during the rehearsals, there was a live on Facebook, IL VOLOhad the peak of views on Facebook.
The boys are very happy and hope to have had positive comments, and Gordon says they have ONLY had positive comments.
After an exchange of jokes and laughter, Gordon asks what they feel, to bring Italy to a high level, because they are our flag-holders.
Ignazio says that it is not easy, because sometimes there are many prejudices, he says that they do not make a strictly classical genre, but this is what reflects them, that represents them and that is really appreciated by the public all over the world.
Piero says that they must thank the Italians anyway, because even if they are almost 10 years into their career, in Italy they only started to be followed for the last 5 years.
They end up laughing and joking.
But the thing that I personally liked the most was a comment on Paoletta’s Twitter.
Paoletta is a radio speaker, long ago, while on the radio they were broadcasting the song by Nek, she commented that Nek was the moral winner of Sanremo 2015. I was very sad and angry.
Here is his tweet from last night:
#Twitter @Paoletta_F Grande impatto, Piazza Duomo abbraccia @ilvolo. Per me è LA prima volta che li sento live e ho voglia di un concerto! @GianGinoble @IBoschetto @piero_barone #RILIVE @RadioItalia 🔊🗣#IlVolo#IlVoloSicilia grazie per la condivisione
Great impact, Piazza Duomo embraces IL VOLO. For me it’s the first time I hear them live, and I want a concert.
And also this comment on twitter of MUSICA TV OFFICIAL:
Unico grande amore: e piazza Duomo tira fuori la voce! @ilvolo @GianGinoble @IBoschetto @piero_barone #RILIVE @RadioItalia 🇮🇹❤
Unique GRANDE AMORE and Piazza Duomo brings out the voice: IL VOLO.
And finally an article that speaks well of our boys and their performance:
In Piazza Duomo also “L’AMORE SI MUOVE”: only applause for Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca.
It’s time for another first time to RADIO ITALIA LIVE – THE CONCERT: on stage in Piazza Duomo, in Milan, IL VOLO debuts.
The power of the voices of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca resounds throughout the square: “L’AMORE SI MUOVE” in the audience, right in front of the Milan Cathedral. The trio takes in the applause of the crowd, full of amazement for the three prodigy boys.
“It’s time to sing together”: so IL VOLO anticipates their encore in “GRANDE AMORE”. One by one, the three singers walk the entire catwalk and approach the audience: first Gianluca, then Ignazio and finally Piero. “You are my only big love” is the statement that the trio launches with force and enthusiasm to all the spectators, who return with a full voice singing the piece that, in 2015, had triumphed at the Sanremo Festival.
The phenomenal voices of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca come together in a shivering finale. Then, the trio intones the refrain again to hear one last time the impressive choir of Piazza Duomo. “Hurray, the music!” Is the cry that closes the show.
What to say, it was simply fantastic, the guys were amazing and people reacted by singing.
The people present, not all fans of the IL VOLO, could hear and appreciate the magnificent voices of the boys.
The only Italian stage presentation of“Elvis – A wonder of you”, the tribute to the King of Rock, currently touring the world to remember the singer at forty years (forty-one, to be exact) from his passing.
On the stage there was a 70-piece symphony orchestra that performed live all the historical pieces of Presley’s repertoire, accompanied by Elvis’s original voice – which was also on video through a vertical maxi screen that rose in the middle of the stage.
The evening was hosted byPriscilla Presley, former wife of the singer, who recounted memories and anecdotes of Elvis’ life. A special guest wasIL VOLO. This is how the trio of “Grande Amore” commented on their participation in the event:
“It will be an extraordinary emotion for us, to get on the stage of the Forum with a large orchestra and sing a song by a legendary artist like Elvis. We have known Priscilla Presley for a few years and it was an honor for us to accept this invitation to participate on some songs this evening.”
