Notte Magica – “They went Rio – de Janeiro!” September 28, 2017

nottemagica header

Ah, there go our boys again… to Rio!  Do you know there are over 100 songs that have been written about Rio de Janeiro?  According to Barry Manilow and many others, it’s the “hottest spot north of Havana!”  The guys enjoyed 5 awesome concerts in Brazil and it’s no wonder their Notte Magica CD/DVD won the highest award!  The crowds at their concerts certainly proved that point.  There were some beautiful pictures posted by Piero and Ercole of the Copa.

Thanks again to all owners of pictures and videos!

Here are your Meet/Greets!  Those are some brightly colored shirts at the end!

We leave you with one more review from South America – Chile!

We saw Ercole posting he was flying back to Italy, but it looks like Piero detoured to Miami, but where are the other two misteriosos?  Only Twitter and Instagram know… 🙂

Alessandra posted an adorable picture of Franz, waiting for his master’s arrival!franz  (Oh, yes, I can see the comments now…  lol)

Notte Magica – Brasilia! Curitiba/Sao Paolo – Sep 19 – 24, 2017

nottemagica header

The guys are quickly making their way now through South America with just 3 more concerts to go.  It is hard to believe and what events they have been through so far, earthquakes, just missing hurricanes, etc.  Things seemed to have settled down a bit, weather-wise since they actually got to South America.  We are certainly glad of that!

ercole sao paolo planeThe Latin crowd seems to be getting an all-around concert, kind of what I’d hoped for in the US – a little of this, a little of that, but as we all say, it doesn’t matter what they sing, it is awesome and never long enough!  However, they are getting to hear Volare, Canzone per Te, Il Mundo, Mas Que Amor, and maybe even a few others people haven’t shared.  Through these last few video clips, I think the guys are finally having fun again.  The clip from Il Mundo, reminds me of “old” Igna, where he was bouncing on his toes during the refrain.  Their voices just keep getting richer and richer.  Their tones continuously awesome.  Adding nuances here and there, just to keep it interesting!

Very special thanks to the AAIV group, who appeared to attend all of the concerts inercole audience sao paolo Brazil and uploading their clips to Instagram.  Also thanks to all owners of the videos and pictures and of course Ercole, Piero, and Gianluca, for always keeping us entertained.  🙂

I’d also like to welcome all the fans from the AAIV site, to enjoy our site.  Please forward to all of your friends!  🙂 

Enjoy!


OMG PICS!  (we of course do not have the group from Sep 24 because it is tonight’s concert)

My doctor said I should add more cardio to my exercise routine, do you think he would approve of this?  🙂 Picture3

Piero – looking up and down at life!

The picture was a little gift from the hotel….was Piero trying to be incognito?  🙂 

I think he might just have to retire that shirt….

Hi Everyone,

Time is sure flying, here we are in November already!!

Il Volo is in Brazil and will give 7 concerts there starting on November 5th. I thought you might enjoy a short history of the largest country in South America.

Brazil i/brəˈzɪl/ (Portuguese: Brasil, IPA: [bɾaˈziw), officially the Federative Republic of Brazil (Portuguese: República Federativa do Brasil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region. It is the world’s fifth largest country, both by geographical area and by population. It is the largest Lusophone country in the world, and the only one in the Americas.

Bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Brazil has a coastline of 7,491 km (4,655 mi). It is bordered on the north by Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname and the French overseas region of French Guiana; on the northwest by Colombia; on the west by Bolivia and Peru; on the southwest by Argentina and Paraguay and on the south by Uruguay. Numerous archipelagos form part of Brazilian territory, such as Fernando de Noronha, Rocas Atoll, Saint Peter and Paul Rocks, and Trindade and Martim Vaz. It borders all other South American countries except Ecuador and Chile and occupies 47% of the continent of South America.

Brazil was a colony of Portugal beginning from the landing of Pedro Álvares Cabral in 1500, up until 1815, when it was elevated to the rank of kingdom upon the formation of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarves. The colonial bond was in fact broken several years earlier, in 1808, when the capital of the Portuguese colonial empire was transferred from Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro, after French forces led by the Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Portugal. Independence was achieved in 1822 with the formation of the Empire of Brazil, a unitary state governed under a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary system. The country became a presidential republic in 1889, when a military coup d’état proclaimed the Republic, although the bicameral legislature, now called Congress, dates back to the ratification of the first constitution in 1824. Its current Constitution, formulated in 1988, defines Brazil as a federal republic. The Federation is formed by the union of the Federal District, the 26 States, and the 5,564 Municipalities.

The Brazilian economy is the world’s seventh largest by nominal GDP and the seventh largest by purchasing power parity, as of 2012. A member of the BRIC group, Brazil has one of the world’s fastest growing major economies, and its economic reforms have given the country new international recognition and influence. Brazil’s national development bank (BNDES) plays an important role for the country’s economic growth. It mostly depends on its own money and invests in big local firms. The bank’s goal is to promote economic growth as well as to preserve the environment and protection of local communities.[20] Brazil is a founding member of the United Nations, the G20, CPLP, Latin Union, the Organization of Ibero-American States, the Organization of American States, Mercosul and the Union of South American Nations. Brazil is one of 17 megadiverse countries, home to a variety of wildlife, natural environments, and extensive natural resources in a variety of protected habitats. Brazil is considered a middle power in international affairs, and has been identified as an emerging power.

Twitters, Tweets and Keeks:

Il Volo tweeted yesterday. “2nd show at #GranRex is done!! and we had the surprise to receive the Golden award pf #Masqueamor from Universal Music Argentina! Thank you #Argentina!!”

Gianluca tweeted to an Australian fan that they would be in Australia next year! He tweeted also ” Finally in Brazil, I must learn to speak Portuguese!!”

Piero tweeted 10 hrs ago, “Sao paulo…#Brazil!”

Ignazio has not tweeted, hopefully he’s laying around the pool, getting some rays!!!!

See Team Il Volo for 2 articles “Il Volo receives gold in Argentina (2nd show)” They received a gold disc for their “Mas Que Amor” album from Universal Music Argentina. See also “Il Volo, we are humble and simple”

All Things Il Volo has some good photos, see the one of Piero’s dad cooking!

It’s been an eventful few days for “Our Guys”, concerts, awards and even a little illness. Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca seem to have taken everything in stride as the professionals they are!! We are happy to see they have a few days off, they deserve them!!

We love you Il Volo, have fun and be well!!
