Some photos of the evening (please click on each photo to enlarge)
And here’s what a Guatemala newspaper, EMISORAS UNIDAS 89.7, wrote:
Completely full, this is how the incredible presentation of Il Volo in Guatemala was experienced
The Italian musical group performed in the Sala Grande of the Cultural Center Miguel Ángel Asturias delighting hundreds of Guatemalans.
Il Volo is a group formed in 2009 and on this tour they celebrate their 10-year musical career.
The vocal trio of male singers is composed of the baritone Gianluca Ginoble, the tenor Ignazio Boschetto and the tenor Piero Barone.
Although Spanish is not their mother tongue, the group has managed to connect very well with its Latin American audience and all three speak this language perfectly.
Many of his successes are in Spanish and in the concert, in addition to exhibiting them, they also paid tribute to the late José José, whom they remember with great affection and respect.
That moment was one of the most cheered of the night and recalled that with the theme “EL TRISTE” they made themselves known to the Latin public on The Billboard of 2013.
This is the third time that Il Volo has appeared in Guatemala and again they have won the love of the Chapines (Guatemalans) with their simplicity, charisma and way of interacting with their public, in particular with their fans.
On several occasions, the three young people came off the stage to hug and kiss their followers, as well as asking some to come with them to interpret some of their successes.
And here in this photo, Il Volo with the Italian Ambassador in Guatemala Dr. Edoardo Pucci, who went to their concert.
Still changing songs, different languages, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca are truly chameleonic artists.
I don’t know about you, but I like them a lot when they sing in Spanish. Actually I like them in whatever language they sing, I’m happy if I hear their beautiful voices.
During one of the concerts in Mexico, exactly in Zacatecas, something very romantic happened, which perhaps not everyone knows about.
A boy, knowing that his girlfriend is a very passionate fan of IL VOLO, has seen fit to buy tickets for the concert, and then take her to Zacatecas.
But the surprises didn’t all end here.
During the concert, while IL VOLO was singing “WE ARE LOVE”, the boy led his beloved in the middle of the aisle (they had no seats ahead) and …
knelt down to make her the marriage proposal !!!
You have understood very well !!! But then, romance still exists. ❤️❤️
Everything was captured by a video made by a photographer present at the concert, who commented:
“I never imagined that I would take pictures of a wedding proposal at a concert, and today I was an accomplice to this incredible moment, during the inaugural concert of the IL VOLO in Zacatecas National Fair. This can only happen in the Romantic City of Mexico.”
And here is the beautiful video.
I bet you all got emotional.
What sweetness, what love, and could not have chosen a better moment or better song
Even the security, which stopped them at first, then let them pass, also because Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca understood what was happening and made signs with their arms to let them pass.
At the end of their song, IL VOLO informed all those present that there was a marriage proposal and congratulated the future spouses.
Everything was really natural and very nice. Too bad there were barriers, otherwise I am sure that the boys would have made them go on stage and would have embraced them.
However, this makes us understand that even young people like to be romantic.
The following day, Il VOLO tweeted this sweet photo:
Women, who among you, would not have wanted a marriage proposal like this? With IL VOLO singing the soundtrack?
All are very good, especially the future bridegroom, I believe that his sweet idea will remain a great memory in his young bride for years to come.
Il Volo fell in love with thousands of fans during the concert they offered as part of their “Music Tour” tour, with which they celebrated 10 years of their artistic career.
In the Italian, English and Spanish languages, Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble have interpreted, for two hours, twenty themes of Latin American classical music, their successes and the new songs from their album.
As soon as the intensity of the National Auditorium’s lights decreased, the show began. The silhouette of each of the singers was barely glimpsed and the audience, mainly women, started screaming with excitement.
The baritone Gianluca Ginoble, the tenor Ignazio Boschetto and the tenor Piero Barone provoked the euphoria of their Mexican followers, who gathered at the National Auditorium to answer the call of their idols, Il Volo, which after six years of absence is climbed the national scene again and simply fell in love.
The power in the voice of Ginoble, Boschetto and Barone was the perfect pretext for the warm applauses, and regardless of the genre, compliments were shouted, like a strong “I love you Nacho!”, From a man, or the amusing – and already popular – cry of a woman: “Make me a son!”
Piero’s sensuality, Gianluca’s gallantry and total feeling, which Ignazio gives to each of his interpretations, as well as his renewed figure, caused delirium, all the more when they dedicated part of their repertoire to a tribute to one of the greatest performers Mexicans: José José.
Another of the highlights of the night was when the Mariachi appeared, with whom they delighted to the rhythm of “Cielito Lindo”, who made it clear that the clear register of Boschetto and Barone’s voices, and the most serious of Ginoble, reaches harmony with vernacular instruments, which have also generated the absolute emotion of the public.
The trio also made room for hearing their own songs, which reached a monumental chorus. If their mere presence was no longer a matter of madness, euphoria was unleashed at most when every young man invited a girl from the audience to sing directly with them. The face of the three lucky girls, between emotion and disbelief, will remain in everyone’s memory.
Guys, what to say, Mexico has also been conquered, by your talent and your love.
Mexico has not forgotten you, has patiently waited, and has rejoiced with you.
Beautiful songs, many in Spanish, which we would also like to hear more often in concerts.
How much love, how much happiness in these three concerts ………. but now away, Russia is waiting for you !!!

Our dear guys have just come back from Kiev. Will they be resting?
Absolutely NOT. TodayPiero, Ignazio, and Gianluca starred in an advertisement in Bologna!
IL VOLO A BOLOGNA
IL VOLO, the band consisting of two tenors and a baritone that is so successful in Italy and in the world, landed under the Two Towers. An unexpected visit that has conquered Bologna. Tourists and passing students stopped to photograph the three idols of young people: Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble.
Using the Piazza Santo Stefano square and the alleys that dive into the jewel of the city, the three very beloved stars have created an advertisement, transforming a quiet Wednesday afternoon into an exciting occasion to meet the young VIPs. The spot is for Ferrero, as part of an event that the multinational will organize in Mexico over the next few months. In front of the curious eyes of the fans, the three of ILVOLO have shot some scenes where they walk around the square, under the porches, in front of the church and via De ‘Pepoli.
The baritone Gianluca Ginoble, and the tenors Piero Barone, and Ignazio Boschetto, did not escape from the embrace of the fans. They lent themselves to selfies and autographs. Although Ignazio was born under the Two Towers,Sicily and Abruzzo are the lands where the young singers grew up. For a few years, however, for all three Bologna is a second home because their manager is Bolognese, MicheleTorpedine. Their roads crossed in 2009 at a talent show by Antonella Clerici, “I Leave You A Song.” From there their show began in 2015, with the song “Grande Amore,” to triumph at the 65th Festival of Sanremo.
