~ One Night To Forget ~ by Daniela

Hi everyone,

This spring I had translated some passages from the book of Torpedine, RICOMINCIO DAI TRE, and, seeing your great interest, I immediately translated the chapter about the night in which Ignazio did not return to the hotel.

For fear of having some copyright problem, I wrote several messages on the Facebook page of Michele Torpedine, LA TORPEDINIERA, asking permission for publication. I have repeatedly asked for an answer but I have never had any, until September 7th. 

I received this response from the Torpedine staff:

“Good morning, Daniela, the wait – as you might have guessed – derives from business reasons. However now we refer to Michele. Thank you. -Staff”

Since then I still waited in vain, and because in my last message I had reported that I would have posted anyway, I would say that, if there was a problem posting the story, they would have communicated it to me.

I leave the post as I had set it a few months ago.

One Night 01

We started to get to know the manager of IL VOLO a little better and we really liked what we read.

The book RICOMINCIO DAI TRE, we recall that it was written by Michele Torpedine and published by Pendragon and distributed by LaFeltrinelli.

The piece that I’m going to translate this time, speaks of the night in which Ignatius did not return to the hotel, the anxieties, the concerns of a manager, but also a great friend. Naturally I await your comments and impressions.

image

A leap forward. Some time after. At night. A drama in which waiting is the solution.

I am in a big city in the United States where my last new artistic creature – IL VOLO – is going to perform in one of the prestigious concerts of their first American tour. Just a few hours before we joked in a restaurant with the euphoria of the successes already collected, with that contagious good humor that the three boys of IL VOLO have never abandoned, in spite of a sense of responsibility necessary but almost excessive, considering that in their peers it is rare commodity.

image

But that very responsibility in which I trusted so much, that night has cheated me.

I should not have condescended on a tour of the city with friends known the day before.

To think that, in spite of my suspicious nature, they had seemed right to me.

Instead Ignazio has not returned to the hotel. His cell phone is off.

The night goes forward and no news. Nothing at all.

Piero and Gianluca, tired of the evening, left him a few hours ago alone with other friends around public places, a few drinks, some girls.

The three of IL VOLO are very young and in themselves, it could be normal.

image

In my case, of course, there was the managerial responsibility for the engagement with an audience of about 10,000 people.

But perhaps it was only a question of staying apprehensive for a while and at most making him a stern rebuke when he returned, as his father would have done.

But it is already three o’clock at night. The city is large and unknown.

Ignazio is seventeen years old. Everything makes us think of the worst.

Start the process of pragmatics with my staff: we look in the hospitals, let’s go to the police.

No news. good news, say the British, but I’m not calm, for nothing.
A part of my mind chases monsters, then makes them disappear, then again materializes them and chases them.

The other part, perhaps to keep steady, retraces the first encounter with Ignazio and his parents, his bold manner of facing the scene, from Gascon, without fear.

Yes, I think, now that I do not know where he is and I am responsible not only for his career, but also for his life: Ignazio is always sure of himself, he always knows how to face everything and everyone.

image

Different was the meeting with Piero, the oldest of the three, who remembers me a little when I started, when I wanted a career as a musician.

Finally, Gianluca, and the first impression with him, certainly wrong: that aspect of a fragile, emotional boy, contained instead a strong character and very clear and precise ideas.

Meanwhile, no news yet. Needless to worry in advance, but now anger came.

And what to do then? Warn parents or not? Make them worry, at a distance with nothing certain? It was not yet the case.

But the concert? Cancel it? What economic damage would I have gone to?

A part of my mind was milling this, asking and answering, building anguish and erasing it.

But the other part, no.

While the only solution was the wait, I thought that those three guys determined and prepared, they had saved me from depression and the desire to leave everything.

Three teenagers, yes, but already great, in all respects.

Already great since the first time I saw them.

So my mind returned to that new beginning while I waited for Ignazio. Which fortunately reappeared, after that interminable night.

And in the evening he sang as always, indeed, better than ever: wonderfully.

One Night 02

Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca embrace Michele Torpedine, his brother Nino and his sister Liliana.

*******************************

Great Michele, we can imagine the worry that evening and the relief when Ignazio is back, dented, but safe and sound.

That evening at the concert Ignazio wanted to thank all the crew and especially his friends-brothers Piero and Gianluca, making them a surprise with a video  during the concert.

For those who have not seen it, here it is, was made by people therefore not of excellent quality, people laugh thinking that Ignazio is joking, but we know well, now, what had happened. Very sweet.

VOCI DI NATALE FROM LEBANON by Daniela

It’s Christmas Day, it’s 11pm in Italy, on RAI 1, as promised, the special registered by IL VOLO in military camps in Lebanon begins, based on an idea by Michele Torpedine.

I try to translate for you by summarizing in degrees.

The video is interspersed with actions taken at the base, songs performed by the guys in the military canteen and songs performed on stage during the concert.

Between one connection and another there are also personal greetings from the military to their families at home.

The video speaks for itself, simply magnificent. The clickable link is below.

Il Volo 🎅🏻 Voci di Natale 🎄 Lebanon

 

Begin with the speech of the defense minister Elisabetta Trenta.

“Hi guys (she turns to the military) , tonight, I had to be with you, but I can not, because I’m here in Afghanistan with your colleagues, here behind me, and they greet you with me.

I take this opportunity to give you many Christmas greetings, to wish your families best wishes, to bring you my greetings, greetings from the government and the whole country.

Thank you for what you do, thanks to your families who, perhaps, will look at us right now, thanks to everyone and, very soon.

Hi everyone!”

The guys are picked up at the airport as they leave for Lebanon. (in the background you can hear My Way)

LEBANON 01

and on their arrival received by the military.

LEBANON 02

On the bus to the base, Captain Gianluca Rosa explains that they are approaching the base near Shama, about 10 km from the Israeli border.

At the Millevoi base, they are welcomed with these nice words:

“I welcome you on behalf of everyone, it is an immense joy to have you here, when a piece of Italy comes here, makes us less distant from home, not just for me, but for everyone”

G = It will be an adventure that we will certainly tell, first of all to our families, but then also to our children and grandchildren.

To Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio are assigned a room like those of real soldiers.

The following morning they witness the raising of the flag and the singing of the Italian anthem. (very moving)

LEBANON 03

Welcome is given with applause to Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca de IL VOLO.

LEBANON 04

P = Beautiful

Military = For us it is the most significant moment of the day.

I = I have to say that behind me I heard people in tune.

P = Behind me, a little less !!

From the theater of Tiro, White Christmas.

LEBANON 05

The guys go to visit the souk, the typical Arab market.

The mission of the blue helmets is explained to the guys.

The blue helmets must be impartial towards the people, they must understand and deepen the knowledge of the people of those places in order to have their trust.

LEBANON 06

From the canteen of the military: Santa Claus is coming to town.

Ignazio = I was born in Bologna from a Sicilian family, I always lived Christmas as a return to Sicily to my grandparents and uncles, then, the true spirit of Christmas, I’ve been feeling it now in recent years, since we started traveling, is the only time of year, Christmas, more beautiful, because we can return home to families, I personally to my sister, that I, I hardly ever see.

LEBANON 07

Piero Ignazio and Gianluca then visit the archaeological site of Al Bas di Tiro, of Roman and Byzantine culture.

LEBANON 08

Gianluca = At Christmas I always sang in church, I sang the Ave Maria and Panis Angelicus. My grandfather very happy in the front row, even the parish priest of the village, because I live in Montepagano, a small town near the sea, in Roseto degli Abruzzi, so we all know each other and as a child they knew me as the singer of the country, we are a big family in my little country.

This is nice, because everyone loves me and I love everyone, as when I go out in the morning to have coffee at the bar, even Christmas is wonderful because everyone gathered in the square and we celebrate Christmas together as a big family.

LEBANON 09

From the theater of Tiro, Silent Night.

LEBANON 10

The boys are made to wear a blue helmet, symbol of military in peace action UN.

Piero and Gianluca enter a tank.

Ignazio asks the commander what UNIFIL means.

The general of division Stefano Del Col explains that UNIFIL is very important because for 12 years it is the guarantor of peace in the area, controls and recalls those who border and guarantees that the borders are controlled.

It includes 43 nations, 10,500 peacekeepers and 1,000 civilians.

The blue bins delimit the dividing line and are spread over 120 km and guarantee a strip of peace.

Ignazio says that they are honored to have been part of the story in the few days they stayed in Lebanon.

Piero thanks the general for dedicating part of his time to them.

The general thanks IL VOLO for bringing a piece of Italy in this Middle Eastern context. Together they wish Merry Christmas.

LEBANON 16

The guys visit the helicopter hangar and get on one of them. (in the background you can hear IL Mondo)

There are always two helicopters ready for any mission.

LEBANON 17

P = Today, as soon as you breathe Christmas air, you breathe the air of home, because fortunately for the work we do, we turn a lot, we are hardly ever at home, but Christmas is a must return, also because our families have separated, some cousins have left for abroad. Unfortunately in Sicily there are not so many job opportunities and some have been forced to leave home. So Christmas is a moment of recollection for everyone, I can only think of a “moment of joy”.

LEBANON 18

From the canteen of the military :  Smile.

LEBANON 19

From the theater of Tiro : Adeste Fideles.

LEBANON 20

Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, sing, in the canteen of the military, along with the children who were orphaned, and who now live in the military base.

I = Today we sang with the children, a Christmas song. Even more beautiful, it was hear them sing in Italian.

P = This morning, singing along with those “magic” children, was a set of indescribable chills.

G= Today we had the great privilege to sing along with some children who unfortunately were orphaned because of the war. That gave us an even stronger emotion and it was really moving.

LEBANON 21

LEBANON 22

From the theater of Tiro : O Holy Night.

LEBANON 25

LEBANON 26

LEBANON 27

From the theater of Tiro : Volare (Nel Blu dipinto di blu).

LEBANON 28

P = For us it was a very special Christmas, we hope to have given you a smile.

I = Special because … starting from playing soccer with the children, doing crazy experiences inside a tank, by helicopter, letting us explain the life of these soldiers. Everything was exciting.

G = Also because these experiences make you a better person, enrich the soul, and we can say that, despite our different characters, this experience has united us three even more.

I = Being here, has made us more proud of being Italian.

P = Now is the time of the good wishes, from Il Volo

PIG = Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

LEBANON 29

Torpedine = The next event will be in Panama, at the end of January, on the World Youth Day, the meeting with the Pope. We hope to travel with him and sing the Ave Maria during the Pope’s Mass.

LEBANON 45

This program has thrilled me so much, I was very proud of my “Italian being”.

These guys are really UNIQUE, immense treasures, sensitive, educated, humble and good.

The idea of the program was Torpedine’s and I must say, honor of merit, he always has some brilliant ideas.

The topics were treated in a delicate way and the songs were followed with such sweetness and involvement.

The latest news given by Torpedine, the presence of the boys at World Youth Day, where they will sing before the Pope was another twist, another step that makes me even more proud of them.

2019 will be a very intense year indeed.

But no fear will come on tour in America, wait and see!

Of course, despite VOCI DI NATALE was broadcast on RAI 1 at 11.00 pm, you must know that it has made the record of ratings !!!! News that makes us even happier.

IL VOLO, ALL THE NEWS by Daniela

Pat and I had already prepared a post on the latest news concerning the recording of the new record, but today was published an interview made to Michele Torpedine, it is really interesting and at the end it communicates some really good news about our guys.

The interview is long and at the beginning they are questions about Torpedine’s book, of which he seems to want to do a second part.

Later on, he talks about the non-recognition of certain artists and at this point Torpedine starts talking about IL VOLO and from there I will translate word by word.

News 01

QUESTION = Not everyone is like that.

Torpedine = There are exceptions, and I was lucky enough to meet one …. or rather three: the boys of IL VOLO, as we understand from the title of the book, dedicated to them.

When I met them and put them together as a trio, they were so young ……. think that 10 years have already passed!

With Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio and their families, good people, a relationship was born that goes well beyond the professional one.

Together we joke, we laugh, then we are serious, collecting world successes: but the human side, their being true and clean, for me is an added value that, in this environment, is a rare commodity.

QUESTION = What is there in the near future of the boys?

TORPEDINE = They are leaving for Lebanon, they will perform for a Christmas concert in an area of peace and, at the end of February, will release a new record with the most beautiful songs in the world.

QUESTION = The Grande Amore?

TORPEDINE = Arrived for Piero, who is living a beautiful story with Valentina (daughter of Massimiliano Allegri), a true relationship, capable of transforming him for the better.

I hope it’s a contagious thing (he laughs) I’m single, looking for my soul mate.

News 02News 03

I’m really curious about to know your opinions on what Torpedine said !!

 

Here is the original post:

We are all awaiting the release of the new CD of the guys, and from the last messages they have posted, it seems that the CD has been completed and soon, we can hear it, but let’s go with order …..

This article just came out, written by the good Antonella Esposito, I will translate it for you.

Zon Article – click here

IL VOLO from “Noche Sin Dia”, “Duets” and the tour. All the news. 

Il Volo is about to return. Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca have posted some shots that portray them in the recording room with the producer Michela Canova. Meanwhile, “Duets Forever” came out for which they collaborated with the unleashed Cristina D’Avena.

Il Volo is preparing a return in style. After the breath of news with the song “Noche sin dia” which in the summer had shown the Latin American spirit of the three artists, was released yesterday “Duets Forever” last album by Cristina D’Avena that collects her greatest hits and for which the boys of Il Volo have lent their voices.

News 04

The “Noche sin dia” by Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca

We had left them about to take off the elegant Armani black tuxedos to wear leather with nails, stylish sunglasses and alluring Hawaiian shirts. This is the unusual atmosphere of “Noche sin dia”, the summer teaser launched exclusively for the Latin market that saw Il Volo dueting with Gente de Zona, a well-known reggae group.

The announcement of the single CD had a little ‘destabilized the minds of lovers of pop-lyric, iconically attributed to the three and who had watched them as children all the way to the conquest of a worldwide reputation.  Subsequently, some clues had suggested that the page of lyric music would not be completely abandoned and so it was.

News 05

THE 2018 TOUR

In fact, the second round of the Tour 2018 will start in December and, after the Italian dates of July, will see them engaged in another five stages in Eastern Europe. Again with the repertoire dedicated to “Notte Magica” and again with the unmissable voices of the guys from Il Volo.

Here are all the stops of the European Tour 2018:

12/08/2018 Lodz, Poland Atlas Arena

10/12/2018 Budapest, Hungary Papp Laszlo Sportarena

11/12/2018 Bratislava, Slovak NTC

12/20/2018 Ljubljana, Slovenia Dvorana Stožice

12/21/2018 Zagreb, Croatia Arena Zagreb

THE NEW ALBUM 

The last post published by Il Volo on social media dates back to yesterday. From the group’s Instagram page you can see the three smiling guys, in the recording room, in the company of the record producer and arranger Michele Canova. The caption reads:

“WE’RE COMING BACK! MANY SURPRISES ON ARRIVAL”

News 06

“DUETS” and the meeting with Cristina D’Avena

Waiting to know what these irrepressible talents have in store, the trio has enjoyed singing the well known “D’Artagnan and the King’s Musketeers” alongside of the Queen of TV, theme songs for kids. Performing a piece with Cristina D’Avena represented a true return to childhood and at the same time the demonstration that it is really true that everyone sings Cristina. You can listen to this singular version on Spotify.

So many novelties are boiling in the pot. It is unclear whether in the input Il Volo is spreading alludes to the release of the new album, in which – we remember – should be important names among the collaborations, including Ermal Meta and Tiziano Ferro. What shines through is a restless and irrepressible enthusiasm.

Whatever the nature of the surprise, it is to be expected so much by these artists that even in different shapes and facets they continue to capture the admiration of endless crowds of fans, coming from every part of the globe and belonging to different generations. Il Volo above all continues to generate sincere affection in those who believe in them and a strong sense of sharing. Good guys.

News 07

….. but to whom will have referred in the article, when they spoke of “fans coming from every part of the globe and belonging to different generations” …….

Here they are in the recording studio with MICHELE CANOVA.

P = So guys, we are in the studio with our producer.

G = The great Michele Canova

P = Actually he is a personal trainer.

G = Exact (laugh)

CANOVA = Mom, what a face!

But who is Michele Canova?

He is a record producer, arranger, composer and Italian sound engineer.

Lately, the most successful Italian singers have been produced by him.

News 08

Moments of relaxation in the recording studio, together with Francesco Renga, hint at one of his songs.

 

I would say that there is so much news they are adding and the works in the recording room are not finished yet but will have to be temporarily abandoned due to the tour.

What do you think of the Christmas concert in Lebanon?

I think that to be finished by February, the guys will have to work a lot, also considering the commitments made.

Come on guys!!

X Factor? I Think Not! ~ Daniela

This is all translated from Italian.  Please remember the sentence structure is a little different than English. ~ Marie

***

Daniela Writes:

Maybe not all of you know that on September 15 in Italy began the first episode X FACTOR (a musical program of new talent that are evaluated by four judges ).

The judges of this edition are all new. One of them is an Italian rapper who perhaps you do not knows (I think) his name is FEDEZ.  He is a tattooed guy who has a great following in Italy.
A Romanian competitor has presented the song GRANDE AMORE sung badly, but what bothered was not the performance but the comment of the rapper who said quote:

“The intention was good but not the song. I sorry.  THIS WAS A FLIGHT LOW COST. THIS IS WHAT DOES IL VOLO IN THE WORLD”.

***

CURRENT ON TV

X Factor 10, the first episode: Manuel Agnelli revelation Fedez hassles Il Volo [PHOTOS]

Is not the first time that FEDEZ says nasty things to IL VOLO.  The fans are very angry about this thing and have made many negative comments to Fedez.

“… carry this ugly incident occurred during the 1th episode of ‘ x factor ‘, because we will always remember who’s fedez’ and to send you… not to watch this programme until the character in question will be part Of the jury!
Mr. (Mr? ) Fedez is able only to insult and – above all – a ‘ Crow’s world for the successes achieved by our boys, Italian pride in the world.”

Another:

“Unhappy sentence instead for fedez that he should be the first on the performance of the competitor dumitru on the notes of ‘ great love of the trio’s flight is: ” the intention was there, but the song no. I’m sorry. This was a low cost flight. This is what makes the flight’s in the world “.
Words that are not liked to the fans of Ignazio Boschetto, Piero Barone and Gianluca Ginoble: ” seemed more insulting than anything else. A word of advice, when you’re on TV, watch what you say “, ” Fedez has just insulted is the flight to x factor. I have a memory lapse: how many sanremo music festival has won fedez? I don’t remember “.
Maybe it’s just a misunderstanding?

The day after, Michele Torpedine, who discovered and manages Il Volo, wrote an article in answer to the fact, signing “the former Andrea Bocelli manager.”

x-factor

(highlights are mine ~ Marie)

Looking for a job? Come into the world of music. There own place to everyone!

Written by 

“Yesterday I saw the first episode of X Factor but we just do not. 

Always I see the same faces, maybe there is something new, but I do not think the situation has improved. 

Let’s start with Manuel Agnelli, copy of Marylin Manson and leader of Afterhours: I do not know what he did in music, but do not think I’ve seen great achievements made by him or his group.  Following Arisa, which by the way I respect as an artist: he has a beautiful voice, but I do not think it is in a position to judge or to build the fate or the future of new talent or new singers.   Going forward, Alvaro Soler, miracle with a single (I’m curious to see what happens with the second).  I am convinced that we can not sit at a table on the first single to judge any future colleagues just for the fact that it sold well with a single track. 
 

I wonder, how do you make a table to judge a singer who had a 25th place in Spain and mediocre outcomes across Europe, and of course a great success in Italy?  In the end, ‘the genius’, Fedez, who with music has nothing to do. You may also register for the 5 Star Movement, and go talk to Grillo around, but certainly not to judge the future of a singer.

Among other things, I remind you that last night you are allowed to judge a group like Il Volo, saying after the hearing of an awkward competitor who sang ‘Big Love’ (Un Amore Cosi Grande ~ Marie) (for other selected from them), this is the effect that Flight manufactures in the world. 

 But what other Italian repertory works in America? her by chance (as in America there are the originals that he tries to imitate)? You should also know that the beautiful singing, opera and pop Italian Italian original products and are recognized around the world.
 
However even as he said that shit, Il Volo was a guest of America’s Got Talent (15 million viewers) and at this time is in first place in the American charts. Too bad for him, that a record level does not even know what it is selling in the world, its sales ranging from Macerata to Varese and I think no further. 
Then what he sells is only a ‘spoke’: can not be called a singer, not a musician and does a job that has nothing to do almost anything with the music, but … miracles do happen. 

So I always say: ‘If you look for work and you do not know what else to do, come in the music world. There is room for all its’.  Until next.”

Response former manager Andrea Bocelli.

Il Volo Professional ~~ Another Milestone with A Hint of What’s New

A Gold Record For Il Volo

In a year that has garnered some nice accolades, The Guys have another: A Gold Record for their single, “Constantemente Mia” with Belinda!

Edgar Cortazar Oficial Facebook

According to Athina, the record was awarded in Venezuela for over 15,000 songs sold, counting all digital sales: all Single Audio Track, online, mobile, download, Streaming and Ringtones.

I think everyone has heard this version and seen this video as well as heard the English version, “I Bring You To My Senses” (my favorite Il Volo song!), but here is the video and a translation just because they aren’t exactly alike:

By Il Volo Bolivia Fan Club Official

Constantly Mine
Alone here, I imagine you beside me…
the time make never-ending thinking about you…
I miss you always…
And into my arms…
I wanna feel you…
Constantly mine, mine…
I hear you in any place…
You make longer every beat of my loneliness…
Constantly mine, mine…
Constantly mine, mine…

Kissing you, loving you night by night…
I talk with your face in the dark…
And in a moment…
My feelings re-emerge…

When it’s raining and it is cold…
You are with me…around me…
When I sleep y dream with your warmth…
Constantly mine, mine…
I close my eyes and here you are…
Between my tears
And all the rest…
Constantly mine, mine…

I hear you in any place…
You make longer every beat of my loneliness…
Constantly mine, mine…
Constantly mine, mine…
Mine…

TRANSLATION about Il Volo (by Anthina Angelopoulos):
-What is the next goal of Il Volo?
-We are expecting many things. In the meantime, a new record label. The next album will be produced by Sony and released in 53 countries around the world. Then in 2015 we’re expecting a world tour and a TV mini series, dedicated to the three boys, with RAI and Mediaset fighting about it. We are expecting soon a lot of good things, so we hope that 80% of all this will come to fruition”

Photo Shoot

jasminboezaThis is an older bit of news, but a few pictures from a casual photo shoot have surfaced.  Jasmine Baeza met the guys in LA before their concert at the Greek Theater this year, and obviously couldn’t resist snapping a few pictures.  Who can blame her with such subjects to study?
