Bologna, 27 April 2019 – The Fico Central Eataly World Arena(photo) struggles to contain spectators for the presentation of Ricomincio dai tre. Young, very young and less young, they fill the stands enthusiastically, waiting to be able to hear the sweet and thunderous voices of their idols. Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble. They are the three youngsters, from whom, ten years ago, Michele Torpedine, manager of VIPs, set off again.
You can perhaps call it a bet, the one that Torpedine faced when he decided to “take three small singers by the hand”. Who would have said that, at the time of pop, overseas music and digitization, two tenors and a baritone would have broken through the national and world music scene to the point of becoming the first Italian artists to sign a contract with Geffen Records, US major? “These three talents are here for their great friend – began Oscar Farinetti, founder of Eataly – who, in the world of music, worked with great artists like Gino Paoli and discovered talents of the caliber of Andrea Bocelli and Giorgia”.
Michele Torpedine, always in the world of music, has seen us along and perceived, right from the start, the potential of the trio ‘Il Volo’ and it is this that is told in his novel, autobiography, Ricomincio dai tre, published from Pendragon. “The first victory at Sanremo was with Bocelli – Torpedine recounts, digging into his memories – an enormous talent that was not easy to break into the music world because of his handicap. But as soon as I put him on the Zucchero tour, everyone noticed the power he had.”
A manager-mentor, who, after working for thirty years as a drummer for big names like Dalla, Orietta Berti wanted “to give” his knowledge to these three boys, today almost godchildren for him. “One thing that all the young people who want to emerge should know is that talent and application are not enough – Torpedine warns in his autobiography – you have to have your head, otherwise you end up off the road before you even get into gear.” Ricomincio dai tre covers the stages of the career of the manager from Puglia with anecdotes, stories, advice and experiences. At Fico, they discussed this, including laughter and chatter, Torpedine, the three of IL VOLO, Farinetti and Red Ronnie.
When, then, the three opera stars took the microphone to sing (video), the spectators reacted with enthusiasm and the boys dominated the Arena as true gladiators. “You have been fundamental for us – Boschetto emphasizes – it is not easy today to find someone to help you realize the dreams and you did this for us.” Piero Barone then underlines: “We are three privileged boys because we travel the world doing what we like.” At the end, they sang “Grande Amore” that moved and united all the fans who are then rushed to the center of the stage to greet the boys and Torpedine without forgetting to get selfies and autographs with the three of IL VOLO.
This nice article was published by the newspaper IL RESTO DEL CARLINO.
In these days, on all the fanpages, photos of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca have appeared in Capri, the beautiful island that is located in the Neapolitan gulf.
Capri is an island much frequented by VIP’s, and famous for its beautifulFARAGLIONI(rock formations which jut out from the Mediterranean just off the island’s coast).
The first clues were given by the boys as they reached Capri.
Gianluca says: We’re going to Capri, I’ll show you ….. Here it is.
But why do the boys go to Capri?
Certainly it is a beautiful island and the sea and the weather, these days deserve a vacation ….. but the boys are certainly not there to have fun.
A couple of days ago, to all the Italian members of the official fan club, (I don’t know if, even to foreigners) an e-mail arrived, warning that IL VOLO would record the new video of the new single and wanted to involve also the his fans in the shooting. It was also anticipated that the day of the video shoot would be the 18th and in southern Italy, but did not specify the place.
But after the first videos posted by the boys, everything was clear, the new video would have had the background of Capri.
Here is a photo of this video for the song: “A CHI MI DICE”.
How wonderful this video will be, and the guys seem to have had a lot of fun, work, yes, but with fun.
Ignazio says:Float in the water.
I seem to be Jim Carey in ONE WEEK FROM GOD (BRUCE ALMIGHTY).
Their arrival has not gone unnoticed, here is a video posted on a local newspaper that headlines:
Il Volo in Capri, touch and escape Easter on the blue island
Il Volo, the group composed by Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble, was last night for a few hours on Capri. One hit and run just before sunset. The trio arrived with a speedboat at the marina, then a walk in the streets of the seaside village before returning on board. The arrival on the island, probably linked to a photo shoot or a video clip, has not gone unnoticed: so many photos and videos taken by the fans.
…….. and this:
Il Volo, a surprise blitz on the island. The ecstatic musical group: “Magnifica Capri”
“Blitz” on Capri for Il Volo. Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble, the two tenors and the baritone. members of the famous musical group, made their fleeting appearance on the island yesterday afternoon, returning from a sea excursion. “Capri, you were magnificent! Today was one of those days for which 24 hours are not enough, we look forward to telling you more. Stay tuned.” These are the words given to their own social channels. A presence in Capri, apparently, for work and not for vacation. As it turns out, the three artists were busy shooting a video clip or a photo shoot. Many selfies with fans: in this photo Il Volo is in Marina Grande with Lia Guercino.
Barbara, always with them, beautiful and good, Barbara !!
Beautiful things run fast, and the day ends early.
Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero greet Capri.
CIAO CAPRI !!!
Once again a beautiful adventure.
The e-mail had also arrived to me, I never saw Capri, I dreamed for a moment, but only a moment.
I can’t wait to see this new video, I already feel it will be beautiful, and you, what do you say ??
On Wednesday 10 April, Piero. Ignazio and Gianluca warned that they were going to Paris …… we are all wondering, to do what ????
Actually a small clue had already been given by this photo published a few days ago.
The wording says, “with the great Oscar Farinetti of Eataly”.
For those who don’t know, Oscar Farinetti is an Italian entrepreneur and business manager who founded the Eataly chain. Eataly is a chain of medium and large retail stores specializing in the sale and distribution of Italian food products.
The question could be …… and what does IL VOLO have to do with Eataly and with Paris?
The answer is that April 12 in Paris opens a new store of the Eataly chain, at the La Fayette Gallery.
Wednesday was open by invitation, IL VOLO, delighted all guests with traditional Italian songs.
We could not miss “GRANDE AMORE”.
IL VOLOwith Emanuele Rabotti, owner of an Italian winery based in Franciacorta.
What can I say, the Italian taste for the excellent food, combined with listening to “the beautiful song”, I would say a sublime union.
Even Farinetti seemed enthusiastic about the event.
And after a good music …… at the table …. Piero brought his little sister to Paris.
Gianluca with the Italian soccer goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.
And Ignazio with Gianluigi Buffon.
But perhaps not everyone remembers that IL VOLO has already participated in an opening of EATALY in Milan, in 2014.
Here they are in this short video singing “IL MONDO”.
Too cute, in 2014.

Guys, you are always very active, one event after another. Run home, Saturday you have an appointment in Italy on Canale 5.
On Tuesday 9 April 2019 Gianluca Ginoble was the guest of the Moretti di Roseto Institute.
The meeting between the component of “Il Volo” and the students of the Rosetan school will give way to the scholastic institution to start a path of official recognition for the high role of representation, under the cultural and tourist profile, that Ginoble is carrying out for the local community and for the whole of Abruzzo.
“For our Institute – explains the head teacher prof. Sabrina Del Gaone – it is a source of pride to be able to start a path of official recognition for the beautiful image that Gianluca Ginoble represents for the whole territory. In fact – the principal concludes – one of our most popular courses is the Tourist one and this has allowed us to understand in depth how important it is to have a testimonial of this level.”
A short but beautiful interview, activate the subtitles! (Click on the settings gear on the lower right, then choose Italian, auto generated to English.)
And here is Gianluca, during his speech with the students.
Gianluca talks about his past as a student, he says that he has always been a little lazy at school and his mother got angry with his father, because he didn’t do his homework or he didn’t study much.
Gianluca says that the goal to be achieved in life is to be happy, he tells the students that after the period of study life opens up and wishes the guys to always be themselves and he wishes them success.
Luca Maggitti, who interviews Gianluca, explains, with a nice episode, that the greatness of the IL VOLO boys is that of being recognizable everywhere. Because so many times there are very famous idols, but only at national level, outside their nation no one knows them, while IL VOLO, is IL VOLO everywhere, in Italy, in Europe, in America, in south-America, in Japan.
Therefore, he asks Gianluca if this world fame has taken away or given him something on a personal level.
Gianluca replies that surely he has had so much from this kind of life, he has been able to travel the world, learn foreign languages, be a better person and be happy because he is doing what he likes to do.
Gianluca believes he is a privileged person.
Then, Luca Maggitti, asks Gianluca, how important is studying for him.
Gianluca replies that the study is very important, but more important still to keep informed, to always maintain a form of culture, reading books, keeping always informed about the news, events, notional studies, but also the study of life events. Never stop learning.
Then Gianluca is asked, what kind of music he listens to and he confirms that he listens to many different types of music and then, as already said, other times, he says he would like to buy a piano and start playing a piano he would like to write songs and also take acting lessons.
Gianluca is asked how important family and territory are to him.
Gianluca says that all his family believed in his talent, but in particular his grandfather, the most important person for him, and recommends that students stay close to their grandparents, who are the greatest treasure of life.
The family is very important for Gianluca, there are no secrets, there is a very close relationship of love.
Even belonging to a territory is very important for Gianluca, he always speaks of his land, he feels proud of his Abruzzi origins and of being a citizen of Montepagano.
Luca Maggitti, points out to the students, how beautiful is the true love that Gianluca has for his land, a sincere love that can be perceived from every word, from every photo that he proudly publishes from his Abruzzo.
In the end, compliments are given to Gianluca, for his way of being a young man with healthy principles of love for the family. The importance of the worldwide success of IL VOLO is emphasized to the students, as opposed to many, many idols followed by the very young, but which are unknown to the rest of the world.
In addition, there is an incentive for all students to find their own way, just as Gianluca, while admitting he was not too brilliant in his study, pursued the path that was most important for him, THE MUSIC.
Final congratulations, because Gianluca has remained the same simple and humble boy.
The comment by Sabrina del Gaone, headmaster of the institute.
“When reality exceeds all expectations …
Spurred on by Luca Maggitti who had the idea, I invited Gianluca Ginoble through his brother Ernesto to my school: I expected, if not a refusal, an elegant reference to a date to be defined.
Instead, not only did Gianluca agree to come to school, he did it willingly (as well as early), he lent himself to unplanned interviews, repetitive photos, sudden hugs, and selfies galore… without ever losing his patience. On the contrary, he seemed to be happy with the invitation and excited about the Morettiano award we gave him.
I discovered a Gianluca Ginoble that is not only a star, not only a VIP … but human, helpful, serene, incredibly tied to his family and his country.
Thanks to Luca Maggitti for helping me ‘review’ my positions and thanks to Ernesto for giving his school a morning to frame.” 💕
Gianluca, never betray yourself.
You confirm what we all know, you are a boy, sweet, sensitive, lover of his family and his land, two great values that must be taken as an example for many young people today.
Thanks for your examples!

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