Shortly before Easter, it was announced that the 2015 Il Volo concert in the Arena would be re-broadcast on RAI1 in the evening.
It was good news, a welcome surprise in these moments.
Shortly before the program, there was a live connection, on the TG, with our guys during the news.
PR = Great music returns in the early evening on RAI1, with the concert event IL VOLO UN’AVVENTURA STRAORDINARIA at the Arena of Verona.
Here they are, they should be connected with us, we see them: Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca. Good evening to you guys, what is the emotion in this moment, it was a very special concert, today it would be, unfortunately, impossible to do it (because of the virus).
P = Hi, good evening, we are very happy that RAI 1 has chosen our first concert in Verona, hoping that it can give, at this moment, in this difficult period, a moment of joy to all the people who are at home.
G= We, on the other hand, are all locked in the house, but with so much hope that all this will pass soon.
I= There is a great desire to start again, to embrace us, to give a hug, perhaps immense, but we are at home and we will make it.
PR= Well, thank you, hope is this.
P= Thank you all.
At the beginning of the recording of the concert, there is a brief appearance of the boys recorded now, where Piero Ignazio and Gianluca wish everyone a good viewing, here is the fragment.
P= Good evening, like all of you, we are also at home, but as you can see, even if separated, you can be united.
G= In this difficult period for our country and for the whole world, we are called to do our part. There are those in the front line, like doctors, nurses, to whom our thanks go, and those who continue to work to guarantee the necessary services and all of us citizens, staying in our homes.
I= Feeling united becomes a necessity, and so, in order to be close to all of you, waiting to be able to embrace each other again, we thought of bringing our music to your homes.
P = This evening you will see our concert at the Arena in Verona, a unique evening of great emotions has come and we would like to relive it together with you.
G= This time we too will be spectators like you, imagining spending this evening together.
It was the third time that the concert was broadcast on RAI, the first time, it had obtained the maximum audience of the evening, but it was foreseeable, it was the first concert immediately after the victory of Sanremo and Il Volo was at the maximum audience.
The second time it aired in 2016 and still did its best on TV.
This was the third time and second replay. Five years have passed since that concert, but we find out how it went this time through an enthusiastic message from Michele Torpedine.
On RAI 1 Il Volo conquers viewers with 15% share, winning the TV ratings of the evening.
These are the words of Torpedine:
“Happy for yesterday!! But the best thing is all the messages that are coming, to me and the boys, from the people who are currently in the hospital and are not experiencing a good situation … and who despite everything have found the strength to write to us that thanks to the ilvolomusic concert yesterday they spent a more serene evening! I think this is the most beautiful result.”
Throughout the concert, there were moments of commercial breaks, which were then removed from the entire video.
Before each of these moments the boys appeared with simple messages:
I = I stay at home, and you? Let’s come back after the advertisement.
G = The music continues, don’t go away.
P = The emotions aren’t over yet, in a little while.
And here are some photos of the concert, published byRAI1.
What can I say, they are always great satisfactions!
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.
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.”
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.
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.
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.
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 !! ❤️❤️❤️
Did you like this nice surprise? 😊
How many of you would have liked to be in Rachele’s place?
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.
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.
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.”
Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio, have also been to visit an exhibition in Bologna, dedicated to Italian music “NOI, NON ERAVAMO SOLO CANZONETTE”.

On December 19th, Il Volo performed in Monte Carlo, in the “Christmas Time in Monte Carlo” event.
Then, Il Volo announces a surprise for all the fans, a freeandlive 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.
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.
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. 😊
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 !! ❤️
Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca extend their best wishes with this video.
Gianluca and Luna
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
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 byRed Ronniemade 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 !!
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 !!
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!!
What to say, the song IL VOLOis 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.
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 yellowand finally red.
What do you think of their clothing?
Honestly I do not like Ignazio’s pants, the rest, everything is OK.
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.

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:

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