I know this is very late, but Napoli happened right as I was working on the keepsake book, and I tend to go underground to work on projects like that until I get them done (watch for an upcoming post as soon as the books are shipped to me). They had a concert last night, but here is a review on their days in Napoli.
The Guys completed the the 4th show in Italy, in Napoli, on September 12, and it seems like it was just as successful and they were as well received as they always are. Shoot; they even got their own pizza this time!
On the day of the concert, Il Volo was invited to an event in the District of Sanità, a once thriving neighborhood that has fallen on hard times. According to a piece written by our affiliates at AAIV, the Municipality of Napoli and many other social institutions are committed to reviving and supporting the community, and Il Volo was invited to help promote the culture of music. Are there any better ambassadors for anything — especially for up and coming youth? 🙂
“Piero Barone Il Volo @piero_barone May 22 July 20th and 21st Teatro Greco di Taormina !!!”
Tickets may still be available for Il Volo’s Taormina concert as well as for the concerts in Pescara and Napoli! Here is the link for those still considering a last minute trip to Taormina! Obviously you have a little more time to decide to attend a concert in Pescara or Napoli!
Speaking of Taormina, I have been looking at Piero’s photos of Italia. On May 22, 2014 he tweeted the first picture of the Teatro Greco above. I posted the other one I took a while back. Do you notice anything about the two? I just realized that, apparently, Piero and I stood in almost exactly the same spot to take these shots! Only his picture includes more of a wall on the left where there is a sign to none other than the “Teatro Greco di Taormina!!!” as he put it in his tweet. How did I miss getting that sign in my picture?!? It is obviously a different time of the year too, in my photo a gorgeous flowering plant is blooming, I was there in early July!
“Piero Barone Il Volo @piero_barone May 20 Every time i’m in Taormina i feel like it’s The first time!!! I’m in love with this City!!!”
I am almost certain we have a photo shot by MN in this same spot where Piero is standing in a previous Taormina post! I so totally agree with Piero, “I’m in love with Taormina” too! Those of you going or are already there – ENJOY and let us know all about your adventures! Grazie! Michele ( mfa and mfazzara)
Come in and share the love of life, friends and Il Volo!
