And let’s go back to following in the footsteps of the concerts of the Il Volo tour, in the second half of July 2022.
July 16, Bucharest, Romania, beautiful concert, many videos to choose from, here they are:
Ecstasy Of Gold
A video that introduces a song, get ready to laugh !!
La donna è mobile!
Let’s enjoy these beautiful shots.
Another great concert and a lot of success.
You will appreciate this mix of songs from the concert.
And other beautiful photos !!
On July 21 there was the concert in Palmanova but I will talk about this concert in another post, because I want to conclude with the last concert in Eastern Europe.
On 22 July the concert by Zaprešić, Croatia, which had to be postponed earlier due to bad weather.
Very few videos, but the photos document that the evening was beautiful and full of emotion, no problem with the weather, which this time perhaps, it stopped to listen to these beautiful voices! ❤
And here are the beautiful photos accompanied by these beautiful words.
There is something special about that moment when the beautiful atmosphere of the New Palace of Ban Jelačić and the great music that enriches this historical treasure in the heart of our city in a unique way.
Just like that of yesterday at the great concert of the Italian trio IL VOLO with which we enjoyed a magical atmosphere and a unique musical experience!🎶🎶
An evening to remember!
❤ Il Volo ❤
Sometimes, simple gestures fill the heart!❤
There was also this nice interview in Croatia. Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca answer in English, so it is also easy to understand the questions that have been asked.
With these events the concerts of Il Volo in Eastern Europe concluded. Sure there would be more concerts in Russia and Ukraine, but due to the war, unfortunately, they couldn’t be scheduled.
It seems to me that the tour, so far is going very well and now there will be some concerts in Italy, and then leave for Japan!
After the June 5th concert in the Verona Arena, there were many new things.
But first of all, I want to start with a photo of the concert I promised you, to show you where the families of the boys were during the evening.
(Please click on the photo to view a larger version.)
On June 23, Gianluca Ginoble went to visit the Vatican museums. Beautiful museums, full of works of art that are envied all over the world.
Gianluca was accompanied by two young women. One of them, Nicole, was considered Gian’s new “girlfriend”, but after this episode, there was no more gossip about the couple. In the photo above, Nicole is the girl in the light floral dress.
Gianluca, inspired by the environments, also sang some verses of the Ave Maria. It was wonderful to hear
Gianluca’s voice resound in the beautiful Vatican rooms.
Piero’s birthday was on June 24th. Surely you have all seen the numerous and beautiful photos, also because the birthday party lasted two days.
On the evening of June 23, to arrive at midnight, there was a nice “party in white”, where all the guests were dressed in white. But how beautiful were Piero and Gianluca in white?
Among the numerous guests, including Torpedine and Barbara.
Great justified absentee, Ignazio, who was in Brazil, seems to be in the company of a damsel.
Here, we say, “If they are roses, they will bloom”. 😉
There was a lot of fun, the party took place in Sicily.
Look what a nice gift Gianluca gave to Piero !!
The three hands crossed, really beautiful and meaningful.
The party continued throughout the 26th day together with friends and family.
And then also in Taormina!!
…………. and could not miss Bambar and Saretto, with its excellent granitas!!
June 30th, Ignazio was at a cousin’s wedding.
Piero also went to a wedding, but I think it’s wedding of his a friend.
On July 5, however, a little friend of ours we met during the concert dedicated to Morricone: Julian Iorio, was interviewed for the broadcast DEDICATED on Rai 1 and Ignazio Boschetto intervened during the interview.
IGNAZIO = Julian, how are you?
Meanwhile, I wanted to say thank you for keeping me company on the Arena stage, it was great to share the stage with you, you were appreciated by everyone, ah, what have you done !!
I send you a hug, a greeting and we hope to see you soon, there will be no lack of opportunity. Bye!
INTERVIEWER = Thanks to Ignazio Boschetto from IL Volo!!
JULIAN = Hi Ignazio!!
INTERVIEWER = He is your colleague.
Listen but what do you feel when you sing and play with these great musicians?
What do you feel?
JULIAN = Pleasure, much pleasure, because Ignazio, by now, we have known each other for a long time and we love each other, so I feel safe with him.❤
INTERVIEWER = Tell us something, but are you a little afraid, before performing, or are you really calm?
JULIAN = So, I was excited, but I knew that I had mum and dad behind the scenes, and Ignazio by my side, and the whole orchestra was behind me picking me up. (he means that the orchestra was supporting him)😁❤
INTERVIEWER = Let’s review that moment together now, come on.
(here begins a short video of the fantastic performance of Ignazio and Julian)
How wonderful, this was a concert at the Verona Arena, dedicated to the great maestro Ennio Morricone.
July 5: concert in Croatia.

On July 9, Il Volo released a video where they perform Grande Amore, with Brazilian singer Paula Fernandez.
”Grande Amore” video with the talented @paulafernandes has just been released and we hope you enjoy it! Watch it on YouTube!
Do you remember when I wrote you that the boys were in Rome at Villa Borghese for the shooting of a video? They were used in this video.
Did you like this performance paired with Paula? Feel free to tell me your opinion.
But on July 9, this short video was also released, from the Facebook page of the “Frasassi Caves”, with the comment:
Il Volo at the Frasassi caves, a perfect combination of Nature, Style and Quality! Coming Soon.
On July 18, the Facebook page of the Frasassi Caves published this second short video.
(Click on the logo below to view the video.)
What can I say, many events have filled the days of our guys.
Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca are back in a great way, they don’t have a moment’s break, and the three concerts in East Europe were great. Very good because as fans, we suffer when we don’t see or hear them for a long time.
I must say that the latest announcement, the one relating to the Frasassi Caves, gives me the chills, I just want to see what they will do in that beautiful context, it will be fantastic.
And so, after a rainy start, which forced IL VOLO to postpone the concert date in Opatija (Croatia) for the third time (the other two for Covid), the concert finally took place and it was a great success.
But let’s start in order.
Day 4 July, incessant rain and the open air concert, must be postponed.
But on the evening of July 5th, there were no problems. It was all very nice.
Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, beautiful, rested, elegant and as always very good.
The songs performed are part of the 10 Year Tour, so there is nothing of Morricone.
A summary of some songs and moments.
O SOLE MIO
Note that the boys do not give up going into the audience that is all without a mask, but the three of them put it on before going down among the people.
This is today’s article about the concert:
Please click on the photo below to view the La Voce article.
The audience of the Abbazia Summer Scene had the opportunity to finally attend the long-awaited concert of the Volo, the Italian trio famous for modern arrangements of famous Italian opera songs and the interpretation of hits tonight, Monday 5 July, pop in a classic key. Postponed three times due to anti-epidemic restrictions and unfavorable weather conditions, the event was held at the Opatija open theater, achieving great success with the public.
For Gianluca Ginoble, Piero Barone and Ignazio Boschetto, it was the third live performance in front of a Croatian audience and, judging by the standing ovations that echoed in the summer scene, it will certainly not be the last. The two tenors and a baritone, with over two million records sold, 220 million streaming on digital platforms, as well as more than 500 million views and 1.5 million subscribers on the official YouTube channel, presented the songs to the public of Abbazia with which they achieved world fame, merged into the collection “The Best Of: 10 Years”, published in 2019. The disc collects about twenty of the most significant songs interpreted by the trio, from the famous compositions of Italian opera (such as “Libiamo ne’ lieti calici”, contained in Giuseppe Verdi’s Traviata) to the greatest hits of popular music (including “Arrivederci Roma” by Renato Rascel and “Caruso” by Lucio Dalla), not forgetting international hits (such as “Be My Love” by Italian-American singer Mario Lanza).
Some photos . . .
But there is only time to go to sleep satisfied and then leave immediately from Bulgaria, because tonight 6 July there will be a concert in Plovdiv.
As soon as they arrived in Plovdiv, they had a radio interview (in English) with a radio station from Romania: Magic FM Romania.
Ready for the beautiful evening in Plovdiv.
Look at the theater, how wonderful, the beautiful ancient Greek theater.
People welcomed them with great enthusiasm and they gave their best.
There are many videos that show us the concert, in a beautiful setting, with many happy people who are there to hear and admire Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca.
Have fun watching them all.
O SOLE MIO
LIBIAM DE LIETI CALICI
Here is an article in the press from Bulgaria, very nice indeed and that I translated for you.
Please click on the photo below to view the Bulgarian article.
With a vision of pop stars and divine voices, baritone Gianluca Ginoble and tenors Ignazio Boschetto and Piero Barone captivated the audience in Plovdiv. The long-awaited concert, postponed for a year due to the pandemic and the closing of the music stages, filled the stands of the Ancient Theater and raised the music lovers to their feet with the second song from the repertoire of the eternal classics.
The Italian trio “Il Volo” came to Bulgaria to celebrate their 10th anniversary on stage and made sure that even without a cake and candles the audience under the hills felt special. Maybe because of the fact that they were here for the third time, but only now they had the opportunity to appear on the stage of the Ancient Theater – the place where their art really sounds magical.
The visit of the trio was part of their world tour, but it will certainly remain in their hearts as one of the warmest and most exciting experiences.
The program of the three performers was more than influential and recognizable – “Nessun Dorma” by Puccini’s “Turandot”, the eternal “Un Amore Così Grande” and “O Sole Mio”, “Libiamo ne’ lieti calici” by Verdi’s “La Traviata”, “Grande Amore” – the song with which the boys won the audience of Eurovision in 2015 and she awarded them first place. They sang the song on encore. The boys bowed to the audience and took on their next challenge, promising to return with their new music program with lots of film music that would touch the hearts of their fans.
Another great success, but time is very short, IL VOLO is expected in Romania, so the next day, immediately departures for Bucharest, Romania.
In this video by Giampiero Grani, here are the border gates between Bulgaria and Romania and the bridge over the Danube.
In Romania, they will perform in the beautiful Arenele Romane open-air theater, built in 1906 according to the Roman model.
Il Volo is highly anticipated in Romania, because it is the first concert they have performed in this country.
The whole audience will have to demonstrate that they have been vaccinated, or have a negative swab performed within 24 hours, or they can take a quick test before entry.
The weather is excellent, so it promises to be a beautiful evening.
And here they are !!
SHE’S ALWAYS A WOMAN– Gianluca Ginoble
QUANDO L’AMORE DIVENTA POESIA
A friend came to visit them backstage, Laura Bretan, remember, she was a finalist on America’s Got Talent and sang “Nessun Dorma” along with Il Volo.
“Got to sing with the faves tonight.💛 Y’all are amazing, Il Volo!”
And in fact they sang the beautiful CARUSO together. I don’t think it was a prepared thing, I think it was a last minute surprise, but a nice and welcome surprise.
CARUSOwith Laura Bretan

Well, the only three concerts of 2021 in Eastern Europe have been made.
It is always a good show and always a good success to attend an Il Volo concert.
Now even this little parenthesis has passed, but the guys said they are preparing big surprises.
We look forward with joy!!

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