Sunday 10 November, an instore, this time Milan, with a mini-live from the Mondadori balcony, overlooking Piazza del Duomo.
The whole week there was bad weather, rain and cold, but on Sunday a sun 🌞 and a blue sky welcomed our boys!
In this video, the boys say that they have just arrived in Milan and are waiting for the fans in Piazza Duomo.
And here they are, from the balcony where they performed, happy to show their NEW CD with a sea of people behind them in one of the most beautiful Italian squares.
Yes, among that multitude of people, I am there too, with my husband. We are there, impossible to recognize ourselves.
What a thrill, we arrived by train in Milan and, going up the underground staircase, and going out in front of the Duomo, white and magnificent that raises its spires in a precious blue sky …… priceless.
As soon as we arrived in square, here they are, Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca, who face the balcony of the library, located in a beautiful old building, right next to the Duomo.
The square is full of people, not everyone is a fan. A lot of people are walking around Milan, but they stop to listen, and we are all with our noses up, listening to these beautiful voices, the arms at the top holding cell phones, intent on recording this beautiful event. Nobody moves, everyone looks up, wonderful.
The event was very beautiful, the boys sang four songs and exactly:
MUSICA CHE RESTA
A CHI MI DICE
and the square responded with so much warmth.
An incredible emotion, seeing them and hearing them sing from that balcony, with the Duomo a stone’s throw from us.
And here is the video I recorded, I missed the beginning, but then I recorded the whole moment for you, without interruption. Good vision to you……enjoy! 😘
After “IL MONDO”, the boys say goodbye and Piero says they are here because their new album celebrating their 10-year career was released the other day and this is their way of thanking them for their support.
Gianluca thanks everyone for being here.
Ignazio says that this year they were in Sanremo and presented a song that he likes very much, “MUSICA CHE RESTA”. (fans acclaim Ignazio)
Immediately thereafter follows “A CHI MI DICE”.
After the song, Gianluca says they want to remember one of the most exciting moments of their career, when they won the Sanremo festival in 2015.
Piero adds that it’s their way to greet everyone.
Gianluca adds that with this song they want to transmit all their “GRANDE AMORE” to us.
Here are the few photos I took:
Here I am, happy and proud, with my new CD, in my hands. ❤️
Unfortunately I couldn’t get the CD signed. 😢
The day was beautiful, but when the sun went down, it started to get very cold. I was at the end of the long line, I was frozen, it was dark and there was still more than an hour waiting in the cold, and unfortunately also the train ride to return home. So, happy for the unexpected day (I wasn’t sure I could go to Milan), I returned home.
And here, below, other photos of the event in Piazza Duomo.
Very nice video from Radio Subasio.
This is also from Leggo.it.
The speaker asks the guys what they felt.
Piero replies that it is a great emotion to see all those people there for them, for an artist it is the greatest joy, looking out at a balcony and seeing all those people. Il Volo loves these people so much, and people love them. ❤️
Ignazio says that today they understood, what the Pope feels.😁
Gianluca says that for them it is like a birthday, 10 years of career, a great goal, and there will be other years of friendship, music and loyalty.😘
The speaker asks what was the most beautiful emotion of these 10 years and Piero replies, the honor when they sang in front of Pope Francis, a memory that they will carry with them for their whole life.
There are no words to describe the excitement of that square full of people and to hear Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca raise their beautiful voices up, up, even higher.
But there are still so many events awaiting us.
Thanks guys, it’s always possible to be with you.
The boys, seeing this photo, said: 10 years of instores, the first photo is the first year, where there would have only been a dozen people and the second photo is today. ❤️ 😄

Well, the first concert in Matera was done, besides the special for PBS.
At the next concert, that of Palmanova, there are some days off …… what to do ???
Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca, have thought well, instead of resting, to do a nice fashion photo shoot.
For who? Still no one knows, but this time there are no little-dressed girls, only the three of them with clothes very suitable for their age, jeans and t-shirts, modern, nice and beautiful.
G = Hello, we are almost ready for today’s photo shoot.
Guys, say hello!
We all know that our Gianluca could be a perfect model!
Piero, but are you the photographer?
Wow Wow Wow 😲 😍
G = The super-star has arrived, “mamma mia”, Dolce & Gabbana, look at him, you are a model, look at him, with palm trees, where are you from, from Hawaii?
But maybe the photo shoot wasn’t just in the studio, it continued outside and as a location, a stable with horses.
Or maybe they are two different photo shoots, we will know when they are published, but look how beautiful Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero are with horses.
G = Mamma mia, you spoil me too much though, so it’s not good.
P = Paolina (name of the mare), Paolina, what is there, greets everyone.
I = Someone complained, what have you got down there?
There is something wrong???
You have something against it, little gentleman (he refers to the horses).
And now look at how sweet our Ignazio is with this horse.
I = But do you want a little kiss? (horse says yes with the head)
You want the little kiss, right?
You want it, come here. (gives him a kiss)
Do you want another one? Do you want another kiss?
But tell me, do you want another kiss? (horse says yes with the head)
And you have to tell me (gives him a kiss)
Do you want another one? Do you want another kiss? If you don’t tell me yes I can’t understand, yes or no? (horse says yes with the head)
You want another kiss, yes, firm, firm that I give you the kiss (gives him a kiss) …. he wants kisses.
What’s up? Call me?, do you want another kiss? Do you want another one? But you have to tell me yes or no. (horse says yes).
He wants another kiss. (laughter)
But how sweet was our Ignazio, it is clear that he has love for horses, in fact we remember that he has two in Sicily, but unfortunately he sees very little for the countless work commitments.
We know almost nothing about this or these photo shoots, but we were pleased to see our boys, who are not only good singers, but also excellent and beautiful models.
Thank you guys!!

As you all have already read IL VOLO has had different commitments …… but where will they find their strength?? I will summarize in order.
Last week they flew to Kazakhstan for a private engagement of which we know nothing, the only clue a picture with the singer Vlad Sytnik.
Then they returned to Italy for another private event in Milan, the presentation of the new Patek Phillipe watch collection.
So the guys rush to Rome.
They are ready for a performance at the Palalottomatica in Rome, for the private event Dream Night, organized by Jeunesse for its members.
This next video, in my opinion, represents a great point of pride.
This event was a surprise for Jeunesse affiliates, who are not explicitly fans of IL VOLO. It was also an international gathering, so people came from various parts of the world.
At the end of the exhibition there was a standing ovation, absolutely spontaneous, surely people have recognized the guys’ great talent and professionalism.
As always our boys have gone out of their way, running from one place to the other for their commitments.
As always, despite the times are always tight, they were excellent.
Congratulations to PIERO, IGNAZIO and GIANLUCA !!!
14 June 2018 – Milano Forum
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 by Priscilla Presley, former wife of the singer, who recounted memories and anecdotes of Elvis’ life. A special guest was IL 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.”
Here is the original article:
This is the promotional video made by Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio.
In this video, the guys thank Priscilla Presley and say they are honored to attend the concert.
Here are the guys at the tests, in the afternoon.
And here we are in the evening. We have known that the boys will do only one song, too bad, it would have been nice to hear Gianluca in his beautiful solos on Elvis’ songs.
Here is the video of the boys. They sang only one song, “O sole mio”, in English/Italian, they were very elegant and impeccable. Priscilla presented them as his dear friends.
Thanks to AAIV for the beautiful video.
So much waiting for one song, but they were very good as usual.
Did you like their performance?
I was satisfied with them but I would have preferred more songs, especially Gianluca.
What do you think?

Come in and share the love of life, friends and Il Volo!
