The promotion of the new CD continues unabated. Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, had an instore in Bologna.
Here are the photos.
And the next day, an instore in Caserta.
All the newspapers dedicate space to publicize the new CD, and the Matera special.
Here are some articles in the newspapers.
SORRISI CANZONI TV
DIPIÙ, also dedicated the cover to them.
They were interviewed for Radio Rai, here’s the video.
They talk about their upcoming US tour and their musical repertoire.
They speak of their classic genre, but which has now become an alternative and of their commitment to bring this musical genre to the knowledge of the very young.
They tell of one of the moments that they remember with pleasure, when they met the Italian soldiers on a mission in Lebanon.
With this beautiful photo, Sony informs us that the new 10-year CD, The Best of IL VOLO, has reached third place in the Italian ranking.
Considering that the first place is held by a rapper much followed by the very young, and the second place is held by Zucchero, who is well known and followed and has proposed a CD of unpublished works, I would say that the third place, for a CD-compilation that reports songs already known of these 10 years …. I would say that it is a very good result.
On Sunday 17 in the late evening (almost midnight) a brief preview of the Matera concertwas broadcast on Channel 5, and there was a record number of listeners!
And here is the announcement of Piero, who warns that they will be in Striscia la Notizia.(In Strip, they usually give the golden tapir, the boys took it because of the news of the Swiss hotel.)
If you wish to read more about Striscia la Notizia, the Golden Tapir and the Gabibbo, please see this Wikipedia article:
Since there have been riots and popular demonstrations in Chile, there is concern about the concert, but the boys immediately reassured the fans about their presence at the concert.
In an interview, a journalist asked Piero why they decided to keep the concert in Chile, despite the climate of popular unrest. The boys responded:
“It would have been easy to decide. We don’t go to Chile, we go back to Italy and finish the tour. But the reason we wanted to go, all three together, is because we don’t want to leave our fans alone.”

Read how nice this comment made by a Chilean guy who went to the concert. Thanks for your words.
“There is nothing better than listening to the music you love, the one that inspires you, feeds your soul and makes you happy. What you listen to over and over again and it is never synonymous with monotony, that’s why you need voices that are the perfect complement. Today I had the opportunity to meet and share with ideals of my generation, Gianluca Ginoble, Piero Barone and Ignazio Boschetto, representatives of lyric pop, already in their 10 years of artistic career, that I followed completely since 2009 when Gianluca won the show Ti lascio una canzone (“I leave you a song”). For me today is an unforgettable day and I feel full of gratitude for this great moment that is part of my dreams that become reality. For you, Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio, the greatest success of all time.”

During another interview, to the question of what they will do in 2020, the boys said this:
“In November there will be a special album to follow the celebration of the ten-year career. In 2020 we will continue with the second part of the tour of the United States and some other countries that we cannot yet reveal. Therefore, we have a very busy year.”
The nice words of thanks of the boys:
This first part of the world tour ends. South America has given us so much and all this energy received gives us strength and reminds us every day that we are on the right path, our road. Now we have all the charge and adrenaline for the next projects: the promotion of the new album “The Best of 10 Years”.
And this tour is over too! Now we return to Italy for the “The Best of 10 Years” release. Thanks to all the Latin America for the affection and love that it has transmitted to us this month! ❤️
Gracias a todos! My life is a dream!!! It’s been an amazing tour! See you in February in the US! 😘
Guys, the Latin Tour was a great and deserved success.
But now it’s time to go home. Italy is waiting for you, a little rest and then off, immediately in promotion for the new CD.
Hasta la vista!!
Go on like this!!
