Tag Archives: Michele Torpidine


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.

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.

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


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 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:


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”.



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.”


“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.”

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

“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.”

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…

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?
