Here are some videos made by the guys to send greetings to the home, from sons or military friends in Lebanon.



This was published by Torpedine : “Important and intense days.

With Il Volo to support the work of our armed forces more closely and for a magical Christmas together!”

IL VOLO visiting the Italian military in Lebanon.

An unpublished Christmas concert for an emotion lived alongside the Italian military engaged in a peace mission in Lebanon and witnessed, in an unprecedented ‘music movie’, which will feature the three boys of ‘Il Volo’.

‘Voci di Natale’ is a television experience that will tell stories, sounds, encounters, moments of everyday life and great classics of the international Christmas repertoire, the desire of the three young artists to bring music to the fore while living alongside those professionals peace that with their silent sacrifice honor the Country and its history every day.

Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble, from the Unifil base of Tiro, in Lebanon, will be on Rai 1 on December 25th at 10.45pm. During the visit, the young singers have followed the main activities of the Italian contingent, telling in an exclusive document the curiosity of a mission that sees our armed forces for 40 consecutive years in Lebanon. During the special concert for the Italian blue helmets also a message of greetings from the Minister of Defense Elisabetta Trenta, who from the Italian base in Afghanistan thanks on behalf of the Government and wishes happy holidays to all our soldiers engaged in peace missions.

The announcement of the IL VOLO concert in Lebanon was also shared by the Ministry of Defense’s facebook page

I have nothing more to add, videos and photos speak for themselves, there is so much pride.

I end with the words of Maura Pucci:

Thanks to the Ministry of Defense, for the sensitivity shown in inviting Il Volo, Italian excellence, to rejoice our soldiers, on a peace mission in Lebanon, when it is most felt, the lack of their loved ones, their homes, of their land.

Thanks to our soldiers, who, in silence, serve Italy, of which we are proud.

Thanks to Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, our three beloved boys, not only for their unique voices, but to be “good” guys who lead the bel canto around the world, with Italy in the heart and that everyone envies us. May your music, your voices lead to our military, fun and serenity!

Beautiful News by Daniela

Hello everyone! The presentations of Torpedine’s book, were seen in the towns of Marsala, Agrigento and Roseto degli Abruzzi with the presence respectively of Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca in support of the project. But remember, the entire proceeds will be donated to charity.

Some gossip had been heard, but as long as there was no official voice confirming, I did not want to anticipate anything for not feeding you false hopes.

But the news has now been confirmed, and by the authoritative voice of Michele Torpedine, therefore absolutely reliable.

But let’s go in order.

During the presentation of the book in Agrigento, Torpedine was interviewed by a local television, TELEACRAS, the video that I attach immediately, is long enough and at the beginning the questions are always the same, and concern, the motivations of having written a similar book .

There is the presence of Piero, who, as you can see, is always kind and affable with people who stop him for a photo or an autograph.

After all the long questions, of which by now you know the answers, we reach the minute 4:00 where, of Torpedine the program for the year 2019 is asked.

It’s coming, even if it will seem a little strange, the ten-year career of IL VOLO.

We will start from January with a big special of RAI 1, a world tour from Radio City New York to Italy, there will be a film.

It will be a whole year dedicated to them.

Abroad they appreciate the important voices, the bel canto, the opera, the true singers, we say, not the rappers or these things here, because they have the originals in America so they will never take J-AZ, Fedez (two Italian rappers), leave them to us, pity, they could also take them.

Then? It’s really wonderful news!

It has been said by the mouth of the “boss,” therefore it is founded/true.

A beautiful special on RAI 1 (the last one was UNICI) a world tour that will start from Radio City, and a movie, it is not clear if the film will be that of UN AMORE COSI’ GRANDE or even a film about the career of IL VOLO in any case, it is a beautiful program.

Are you happy?

What is your opinion?

I await your comments!

Ignazio Returns to Premio Nave Punica

AAIV3Before heading to La Vita in Diretta, Ignazio made a stop as a special guest at the Permio Nave Puncia Contest in Marsala, and international pop music contest that he won as a 14 year old.  In a review, again from All About Il Volo, it is noted that Ignazio had some words of encouragement and inspiration for this year’s contestants.  How awesome is it that he gets to do that?  🙂

Before coming to the US, The Guys were in Rome taping an appearance on Porta a Porta with Bruno Vespa.  Frankly, I think everything came up so quickly, that there isn’t a lot written about this appearance, but we do have videos and pictures available for viewing.
