ALWAYS TOGETHER by Daniela

Friendship, the true one, can move seas and mountains, and is recognized in times of need.
Piero and Gianluca are two true friends and right now they are demonstrating this. Ignazio, since his father’s funeral, has remained in Sicily, perhaps he did not want to leave his mother and sister alone and he needed a moment of rest.
But there is a project to be completed, the tribute for Morricone, time passes and the date, which for now remains confirmed, is approaching.
So, a couple of days ago Gianluca published a photo of him at the Rome airport, leaving, for where?

We all thought about a return to Bologna, to continue the registration for the tribute.
But it wasn’t like that, the three friends got together, but not in Bologna, but in Sicily, it was all planned ….. I don’t think so. I think that the events, which prompted Ignazio to return to Marsala and to take a rest period, made Piero and Gianluca decide to return with their friend, to support him and also be able to continue their projects.
This is a true friendship. ❤❤❤
And here they are, beautiful and united.

Can I interpret the feelings of all of us fans, seeing Ignazio Piero and Gianluca together again? A feeling of great affection invaded me on seeing their beautiful faces gathered together. So much gratitude to Piero and Gianluca who preferred to go back to their friend and companion of many moments, Ignazio.
But the works have to resume, and so here they are intent on rehearsing the songs, they nicely let us peek, small moments, some chords ……. to make us understand that everything is proceeding.
I glimpse between them Lello Analfino, the one who had written beautiful words for Piero and Ignazio, now he has also met Gianluca, it looks like a recording studio, perhaps Analfino is giving them advice, and they know how to listen to the advice of people who have experience!

Surely, the Sicilian landscape outside is gorgeous, by the admission of the guys themselves ….. “the best way to record music” …..

And then we go out together, as friends, return by car and…

….. to end the evening, a nice dinner all together, while watching a football match, good times with friends, to end the evening, after a day of rehearsals.

And tomorrow we start again, but always together, always united.
Because this is the meaning of friendship.
The friendship that makes Ignazio write a beautiful theme for a television drama, Màkari, but which he shares with his old friends: Piero and Gianluca.

And in the recording studio MCN STUDIO 17, in Palermo, they work, record, but there are also satisfactions.
These beautiful words had just been published by the studio itself.
Days of friendship and a special love that only music can give, thanks Il Volo, because in addition to music you bring with you that healthy joy of life that makes every moment madly beautiful, after all, art is to transform into happiness, and to live every moment of what some commonly call work, in a light way and full of ideas to improve by improving, you have brought this into our studios.
PS: Silvio Schembri (Piero’s friend) brought the “cassata” (delicious Sicilian dessert) and isn’t that happiness too ??? 🤡

To the most demanding, rightly, we remind you that the people portrayed in the photo are all “buffered” (they performed the test for the virus), see the following photo, and despite this, during the working hours all the positions were maintained and used precautions to avoid contact.
The photo without masks is a need that concerns the affection you feel with friends, and also a desire to exorcise the moment with the hope of being able to return soon to hug and kiss without fear, because hugs and kisses are that code of body language that makes us men and women free to love each other, and we want for these young talents a good that goes beyond imagination.

A couple of days ago, the page of Il Volo gave the official news of Vito’s passing with these beautiful and moving words.
A few years ago we titled one of our concerts “An Extraordinary Adventure”.
Well, all adventures contain moments of happiness and moments of sadness, the key thing is to face each of these moments together.
United, always.
Ciao Vito, we will miss you.

Better words could not be chosen, Vito will never be forgotten. 
Always united, in happy and sad times, because that’s how true friendship works.
And what about the nice words used to our guys by the recording studio
What a joy to be able to see Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio, at work, rehearsing and recording, because they want the next event to be “perfect”, they want everyone to like it and be a worthy tribute to a “great composer”.
They will succeed, we are sure, and we will contribute to their success, with our affection and with our support.
Thanks guys, and good luck!

IL VOLO AGAIN IN SANREMO!! by Daniela

What did I write to you a week ago, concluding the post of “On the road to Sanremo”? That Il Volo would return to Sanremo again, both as a guest and as a competitor ………….. and in fact, the news is yesterday.

Il Volo will be a guest on March 3 in Sanremo.

This is the official news given by Il Volo.
We are pleased and honored to inform you that Wednesday 3 March we will be guests at the Sanremo Festival!
We will perform on the Ariston stage with a tribute to Ennio Morricone, a small preview of the great concert that will take place in June.
The Festival Orchestra will be conducted exceptionally by Andrea Morricone, the son of the great Maestro.
We want to thank Amadeus (host of Sanremo 2021) for inviting us, it will be a beautiful and emotional performance that we can’t wait to participate in!

And here is what the newspaper LA REPUBBLICA writes.

Il Volo returns to Sanremo. After the victory in 2015 with Grande Amore and the podium in 2019 with Musica che resta, the trio will be guests of the second evening of the Festival, Wednesday 3 March. Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble will take the stage of the Ariston with an exciting performance in homage to Ennio Morricone accompanied by the orchestra of the Sanremo Festival which for the occasion will be directed by the son of the master, Andrea Morricone. The three artists will retrace the melodies of the musician, composer and author of the most beautiful soundtracks of Italian and world cinema, awarded with an Oscar.
This performance, the second at Ariston as guests, will be a preview of the concert-event of the Flight to be held in June 2021, an overwhelming journey into the art of one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century entitled Il Volo tribute to Ennio Morricone which will also be the title of the new album which will be released worldwide for Sony Music by the end of 2021.

So, the various photos in the recording room concern the new CD which will be with Morricone’s music.
Furthermore, also in the schedule of RAI 1, the Il Volo Tribute event for Morricone is confirmed on June 5.

I think it will be a fantastic project.

And so here we are again in Sanremo, where I am sure, you will bewitch us once again.

We are so proud of the event you are preparing and the photos that come to us show that you are fully and personally involved in this project. You are now men capable of making your decisions for better or for worse.

And we will support you, waiting with trepidation for this new work which, I’m sure, will be beautiful.

See you very soon:  Daniela
