Il Volo Professional ~~ New Wave 2014, Abruzzo Press and Taormina Wrap Up…Just Because

Hey Everyone!

I think I’ve–dare I say it?–finally caught up with our busy globe trotters and can take a bit of a rest until they hit Mexico at the end of the week.  Perhaps a drink right in the middle of that group of guys in the picture Gianluca Instagramed a little while ago….no…?  OK…fine…. *pouting*   😉

After an emotional and amazing week in Taormina, The Guys headed to Riga,  the capital of Latvia, and Jurmala to participate in the New Wave Music Festival.  The festival is a six day event with two days dedicated to international competition, though Il Volo did not compete; they appeared as special guests, singing two crowd favorites.  To read more about the event,

Yes, Gianluca; we love your looks from Brioni.  Ooh, la la!  Unfortunately, I’m not blonde.  Dang!

From Latvia, they headed “home; sweet home,” or more correctly: Gianluca did.  Ignazio and Piero went with him to prepare for their press conference in Pescara to talk about their upcoming concert in Abruzzo in September.  In attendance were: Pescara’s mayor, Marco AlessandriniGiovanni Di Iacovo, Council Member of Culture, Massimo Fregnani, the Italian tour promoter  and, of course, their faithful manager, Michele Torpedine.

I’m guessing that everyone has seen about everything that there is to see about Taormina, but I found a few more things.   Enjoy!
