LA PORTA DEI SOGNI by Daniela

It was a really nice dream, what Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca allowed to come true, for the beautiful and sweet Rachele and for her mother Alessia.

In the TV show LA PORTA DEI SOGNI (The Door of Dreams), broadcast by RAI1, the possibility of realizing a dream is given.

I chose this video, because it is the most complete of the whole evening and therefore I will translate it for you.

At the beginning Mara Venier, the host of the program, reads the letter from Alessia, a mother who with great difficulty raised her two daughters, practically alone (after separation from her partner), one 4 and one 9 years old .

Nine years have passed among sacrifices and Rachele, the eldest daughter, turns 18. Mum asks Mara that Rachele be celebrated with the boys whom the girl admires very much, because they managed to obtain, with study and sacrifice, what they wanted and have always been an example for Rachele.

La Porta 01

Alessia tells how difficult it was to raise the girls, especially Rachele, who in adolescence, did not understand the mother’s constant NO to any request, a pizza with friends, go to the cinema, a continuous No, because the money sometimes they weren’t enough to eat. Furthermore, Rachele did not like herself, because she was a little overweight, so the mother-daughter relationship was very difficult.

At some point, they also had to leave the house and go to live in a basement, where in only one room, they had a sofa bed and a small kitchen and TV.

Alessia, with some tears, however, says that they were the best moments. They sat down and watched a program of little singing children (TI LASCIO UNA CANZONE)

“There were three kids that I indicated as an example to follow, because to succeed you don’t have to follow fashion, but to commit yourself, because what you believe in can be transformed into reality.”

La Porta 02

Mara adds that now these guys have become famous all over the world and they bring our Italian spirit up high.

So Mara says to Alessia, “Let’s see what Rachele thinks of you.”

____________________________

Rachele remembers the many problems they have always had. Remember that they often ate white pasta and potatoes, but mom always had a smile for them.

At some point Rachele understood that the sacrifices that her mother made were immense and therefore she left school and went to work to give valuable help.

Rachele thinks her mom is truly UNIQUE

La Porta 03

Rachele enters in the studio, and Mara asks if she has understood what is the dream that her mother has desired for her.

Alessia says that she would have liked Rachel to marry someone like Piero.

The dream is to bring Rachel together with the guys from her favorite group, IL VOLO.

Mara tells Rachele to go to the door that will light up.

La Porta 04

Enter Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca.

Kisses and hugs and a lot of emotion, Rachele is happy.

Ignazio tells Rachele that he too was a little overweight as a kid, and that this year, he sang a solo by Mia Martini (ALMENO TU NELL’UNIVERSO) and she said that “Nobody is able to judge us, only we know what we are worth in this world.” and these are words to always remember.

A medley of beautiful songs from IL VOLO begins.

La Porta 05

At the end Piero, gives a gift to mom and daughter, a VIP package, for the Arena di Verona, complete with Meet & Greet.

So much emotion and in the end Ignazio asks “but who is the most beautiful of the three of us?” and Rachele, between laughter says that Ignazio is the most beautiful!

Final hugs to everyone !! ❤️❤️❤️

La Porta 06

Did you like this nice surprise? 😊

How many of you would have liked to be in Rachele’s place?

I await your comments.

SUMMARY OF CHRISTMAS EVENTS by Daniela

Since the last time I wrote a post, it’s amazing how many things our guys have done, but let’s try to retrace all their commitments.

Milan was also embellished with beautiful IL VOLO posters.

 

Summary 01

On December 17, Il Volo takes part in the presentation in Bologna of the new book by dear friend Bartoletti: ALMANACCO DI SANREMO. The boys were kind and affable to everyone.

Summary 02

At the end of the evening, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca recorded a video message dedicated to Sinisa Miajlovich (coach of the Bologna football team, currently suffering from leukemia). Here are some of the beautiful words written by Bartoletti.

“When the presentation of a book ends with Il Volo that stands up to go to dedicate ‘Grande Amore’ to Arianna Miajlovich sitting in the front row (then asking her cell phone to send a private encouragement video to Sinisa) there would already be very little to be added. Yet before, there had been … everything else. Between participation, joy and even a little emotion. With the acquired certainty that the A of Almanac is the same as A of Friendship (Amicizia ): and also the A of Love (Amore).

Difficult to find the words to thank Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero who came on PURPOSE to give us their affection.”

Summary 03

Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio, have also been to visit an exhibition in Bologna, dedicated to Italian music “NOI, NON ERAVAMO SOLO CANZONETTE”.

Summary 04

Summary 05

______________________________________

On December 19th, Il Volo performed in Monte Carlo, in the “Christmas Time in Monte Carlo” event. 

Summary 06

Summary 12

Then, Il Volo announces a surprise for all the fans, a free and live mini concert, which will be held on 20 December outdoors, in front of the Milan train station.

Unfortunately on December 20 there is a horrible weather, it rains a lot and there is cold wind, but as promised, the boys do the mini live as announced.

Summary 07

 

 

 

We must make a big and warm applause to the guys who performed despite the impossible weather, but also to the fans who attended, despite the cold, wind and tremendous rain.

_______________________________________________________________________

22 December

On RAI1 there is a television program I SOLITI IGNOTI, which is done for charity purposes,TELETHON. During the broadcast there will be many guests, including IL Volo, the aim is to guess who the people are, through clues. In the end, Il Volo knows exactly how to guess and the result of the evening of the game and the phone calls from home will go to charity.

The program was a lot of fun, the boys also sang two songs. Many laughs. Here is a  video of the whole evening.

If you have a problem hearing the audio part of “Grande Amore”  a link below will take you directly to the Sicilian Facebook Fan Page. You should be able to hear it there. 😊

Summary 08

From Mexico, images of NAVIDAD ATZECA arrive, where Il Volo sings “O HOLY NIGHT”, recorded during their last visit to Mexico.

What a sweet and beautiful song, Christmas is coming !! ❤️

24 December

Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca extend their best wishes with this video.

New concert dates have also been announced:
June 16 – Dusseldorf
June 18 – Frankfurt
June 29 – Barcelona
July 11 – Lodz
July 13 – Bulgaria
July 15 – Bucharest

Summary 10

During the Christmas holidays, Piero went to Cortina for a holiday in the snow, together with friends.

 

A nice piano arrived at Gianluca’s house and, in a short time, Gian cheered us up with this nice video, where he sings and PLAYS his new piano, good Gianluca!!

Instead on New Year’s Eve, a short video published by Red Ronnie made us discover Ignazio playing the guitar during a song with friends.

And on the first day of the new year, this beautiful video was released. It was done with the aim of sensitizing young people to turn the radio volume down or off while parking, because loud music could divert attention from the maneuver.

Very nice guys, who lent themselves to this video !!

Summary 13

In short, a very busy period for Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, but it did not end here, on January 3, they will be guests on RAI1 in the LA PORTA DEI SOGNI program, also they should be guests of PORTA A PORTA with Bruno Vespa.

I can’t wait to see them again at Porta a Porta !!

Summary 11

Dear all,

I want to apologize to all of you for being absent for a long time, without any explanation, from this site.

I am very sorry that this happened and that I was not present for Christmas and New Year greetings. 

I have had a very difficult period, because of health problems in my family, which have not yet been solved.

It wasn’t very happy days, but I have thought of you all.

So even if late, accept my best wishes for a happy 2020 year, beautiful concerts are waiting for you!!

SANREMO DAY 1 by Daniela

And so the first evening of SANREMO has passed.

What to say, the song IL VOLO is very beautiful, but the audio of the TV show was bad, then it was fixed, but the boys had already sung.

But let’s look at the video of the evening together.

The more I listen to it, the more I like it, it’s beautiful.

The lyrics are very beautiful, the music has a less classic touch of “Grande Amore”, and a little more rock. The voices of the boys always very beautiful.

At the end there was a very long applause, I think the longest of all the evening. The public loves IL VOLO.

SANREMO DAY 1 01

Too bad that in the RAI video, the applause was cut.

At the end of the performances, there were no eliminations or even rankings, but only groupings in three great colors.

In the blue color the most voted, IL VOLO is in that, then there is yellow and finally red.


SANREMO DAY 1 02

What do you think of their clothing?

Honestly I do not like Ignazio’s pants, the rest, everything is OK.

SANREMO DAY 1 03

SANREMO DAY 1 04

SANREMO DAY 1 05

SANREMO DAY 1 06

The guys were very excited, but they were fantastic!

Today in the newspapers, there are different opinions, some consider them winners and those who do not.

A satisfaction, I read a comment that says that the press room, gave an applause to IL VOLO, while if you remember the last time they had reserved only whistles to them.

The official video of the song has also been published today. Here it is, we try to make the views go up, watching it continuously. 

It’s a rather strange video, I have not yet understood the meaning, I have to see it again and again.

Also in these days the video-diary started, we are already on the third day, here it is.

P = Here we are, guys we arrived, the party started.

G = We are here too, ready to celebrate.

P = Hi guys.

G = Hello everyone, we are IL VOLO, this is the first appointment with the video-diary of Sorrisi.

G = Yes, because we two train ourselves, Ignatius no.

Now, we are doing the interviews.

P = Exactly, we have already done six or seven interviews, we’re going to rehearse this afternoon.

G = It will be a pretty intense day, we are excited because day five is approaching. now we are close, the emotion increases, even the tension, but we cannot wait to sing the song for you.

P = Ignazio, on the other hand, cannot wait to train ….

G = Hello friends of Sorrisi.com, today in Sanremo is a wonderful day.

I = We wanted to introduce you to Fonzie (he refers to Gianluca).

P = We have not forgotten about our video diary, we are walking, but we are actually going to eat.

G = We have already done several interviews, it is a busy day up to 4:00 pm because then we have to rest for the evening.

I = Yes, now comes the most important moment, as Piero said, which is lunch, you have to eat, treat yourself.

P = Actually we are really loads for tonight, there is a different tension, compared to other days, we can not wait.

G = We can not wait to sing “MUSICA CHE RESTA” for you. Hello.

P = From tomorrow we can sing it.

I = Hello everyone.

I = Hello guys third day.

P = We are at the editorial office of Sorrisi e Canzoni.

I = Last night we sang for the first time “MUSICA CHE RESTA”.

G = The feedback from the public has been positive, perhaps we will be returning tonight

P = You will know soon, after the press conference.

G = We can not wait to sing it again, so you can hear it again, and you can learn it by heart.

P = Today, for a change, lots of interviews, it’s nice to hear our song on the radio, this is the most beautiful emotion.

I = But do you like my hair today?

G = It’s too classic.

I = But I’m a “cool”, look.

G = Yes, but you say it to yourself, alone.

I = You are jealous ….

P = Boys, you’ll soon know if we’re singing tonight or tomorrow.

G = Follow us on social media.

I = And here on Sorrisi.com.

P+G = Hello

 

In addition, today our boys have received a prize from you tube.

SANREMO DAY 1 07

This is the motivation:

PR = I am very happy to deliver you on behalf of YouTube, the “Gold Creator Award” for having passed one million subscribers on your YouTube channel. This shows all the affection and enthusiasm of your many members.

P+I+G = Thank you all.

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!

I completely share:

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.

IL VOLO photo

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.

IL VOLO photo 2

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!
