HERE WE ARE by Daniela

A few days ago a short video was published that reports some questions (perhaps asked by the fans) to which Il Volo answered.
I believe they were made before the tribute concert at the Arena.
These are a handful of questions, but it’s nice to see how Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca react and make fun of each other!
The comment accompanying the video is:
“Here we are, with unexpected questions, sincere answers, laughter and curiosity.”
Part 1 (so it is assumed that there will be more short videos like that.)
I translate for you:
QUESTION = Can you tell me about an event that has remained close to your heart, which happened with your fans?
PIERO = NO
QUESTION = Have you ever changed or forgotten the lyrics of a song?
IGNAZIO = Do you know how many times we have forgotten the words during a concert !!
PIERO = It was a piece in French, TUS LES VISAGES DE L’AMOUR …. and I forgot the words, I didn’t remember anything.
QUESTION = Who often forgets their socks?
PIERO = Him (and points to Ignazio)
IGNAZIO = Who, I? It’s Gianluca!
GIANLUCA = Me ?? You! (points to Ignazio)
IGNAZIO = Me? You! (points to Piero) 😁😁😁
QUESTION = Favourite song?
IGNAZIO = As of today, with the project we are doing: YOUR LOVE.
QUESTION = A ritual you do before a concert?
IGNAZIO = One of the things we often do is shake hands, (he joins his hands) like this.
QUESTION = Favorite movie?
IGNAZIO = THE TRUMAN SHOW
PIERO = No! NUOVO CINEMA PARADISO.
GIANLUCA = GOOD WILL HUNTING, with Robin Williams

IL VOLO in an ad for the SMA - Seat Music Awards

This photo, published on the official page of Il Volo, informs us that on 9 September, Il Volo will be present in the Arena di Verona, at the Seat Music Awards event, an event where all the artists who have achieved their goals are awarded and certainly Il Volo. will be present for the Gold Record obtained with the sales of the 10-year CD.
Well, it is an event full of artists and music and very popular with young people, we will hear that song (usually only one) presents Il Volo.
The photo is accompanied by this comment:
“Hello #ilvololovers, we are delighted to inform you that this year we will participate in the #SeatMusicAwards at the Verona Arena and we can’t wait.
It is always a great honor for us to sing in the suggestive atmosphere of the Arena!
See you in September!”

Another very nice video starring Gianluca, was published by visitRoseto.it.
It is entitled Gianluca Ginoble-Multimedia tourist guide of Roseto degli Abruzzi, and in fact, who better than Gianluca, so proud of his land, can highlight the beauties of Montepagano?
In addition, the Belvedere is very close to his home.

I translate for you:
We are certainly in one of the most beautiful places on the Adriatic coast.
I am biased, however, we are in Montepagano, in the Belvedere, the place where I grew up and looking out from here certainly helps to appreciate the true meaning of life.
Being able to look at the sea from afar and appreciate the sound of the sea waves, this wonderful sound that is like music.
I grew up on music, and as maestro Ennio Morricone said “from silence great works of art are born”.
So I invite you to be here and to look out from this wonderful place, to really be able to appreciate the good things in life, music and the sea, which have one great thing in common, are a great work of art.
Very good Gianluca and to lend you for these relaunch messages of your country, it does you honor.
The Tokyo 2020 Olympics have just ended, but we could not show you this nice video of a Mexican gymnast, Rut Castillo, performing her rhythmic gymnastics exercise with the ribbon on the well-known notes of El Triste, sung by Il Volo!!
And now let’s see what our three have posted.
In early August, they went to Milan, to Sony and then to do a photo shoot, perhaps for the new CD?
Here are the photos posted by those who took care of their appearance.

It’s also vacation time and let’s find out where our young men are.
Ignazio is always the one who publishes very little, his few photos are almost always published by others, he almost never publishes.
Here he is again at a wedding.

Piero remained in his Sicily, often photographed in Taormina.

Here, Piero with his sister Mariagrazia.

Surely the most prolific of photos and videos is undoubtedly Gianluca.
Here he is driving a luxurious convertible car, which I believe is not his?

(Click on photo below to hear Gianluca singing Fly Me to the Moon)

Maybe the car was used for the cousin’s wedding?

And then Gianluca, with his inevitable twin friends, allows himself a nice sport trip in the Tirino valley.

Gian with the Di Stefano twins

Gianluca in a boat on the river

The Tirino river valley is a beautiful green lung, rich in history, nature and culture.
It is the heart of Abruzzo.
Gianluca says: “We have to take a picture, these are indelible moments.”
That’s it Gian !!

Gianluca rinsing himself off in the Torino river

 

Beautiful places, but what an effort, in the end, a well-deserved rest!
And then, also for Gianluca, a few days in the beautiful Taormina!

 

Ganluca smiling, in whit t-shirt

It is also a good opportunity to attend the Rigoletto, the Ancient Theater, an opera directed by Placido Domingo.

And so, after some effort and a lot of fun, we have reached August 15th.
Once, here in Italy, it was the only day of vacation for those who worked, today it is considered the culmination of summer: Ferragosto (literally means August grilled, that is very hot), this is the name of the feast of August 15th.
This year it is really very hot, in Sicily there was the highest temperature in Europe, almost 120 ° Faherenheit, and unfortunately there were also many fires.
There are infections of the Delta variant on the rise, but since there are so many vaccinated, the situation is under control there are no problems, for now, in hospitals.
August 15 is also the feast of the Assumption, a religious holiday, very much felt here.
So: Happy Ferragosto to all:  Daniela

WHERE ARE THE THREE OF IL VOLO? by Daniela

August, a month of holidays. It’s very hot.

This year, due to Covid-19, everything is different, but a semblance of normality seems to be returning here in Italy.

Let’s try to follow the traces left by our boys:

GIANLUCA

We find Gian, engaged in a canoe excursion on the Tirino River, in the company of friends, family, and the guide.

 

Guide = Hello everyone from the valley and the TIRINO river, from Capestrano.
Today we bring you the greetings of a special guest, one of the most important ambassadors of our land in the world

G = This way, you get me excited, (laughter) are we already connected ??

Guide = Yes Gianluca.

G = Hi, good morning everyone, today I am spending this beautiful day, with my family, in this wonderful place.

For me it is the first time and I am in the company of special, professional people, I am very happy, please, you must all come here.

Guide = Thank you!!

G = I’m honest, that’s not so much to say !! These words come from the heart.

Guide = Thanks again, we are all waiting for you here on the Tirino.

G = Greeting on the fly.

Guide = Greetings from all the Bosso staff, bye!!

 

G = Il Bosso profile.  (He is recording the video for the Facebook profile IL BOSSO)

We are here together, and as I said before, I’m having one of the best experiences of my life and I’m not kidding.

I am from Abruzzo DOC (it is the brand that means Of Controlled Origin, 100% from Abruzzo), proudly from Abruzzo, proud of my land and of our places, unique in the world.

Look, I’ll show you the water, look how wonderful.

Then, having these early morning experiences, regenerates, you start the day differently, and it really reminds you, how beautiful life is, right?
Then you do this job, since when ???

Guide =“For more than fifteen years”.

G = So I can imagine, for me it’s the first time and I’m crazy, you who practically live this life every day …

Guide = “I’m crazy”…..

G = You are crazy  !!

I really wanted to say hello to everyone, maybe I’ll come back soon and see you here.

Greetings, I wish you a good day, that we are having a truly beautiful day.

New love for the beautiful puppy owner?

Perhaps, but for the moment we are content to see Ignazio so happy.

Where 06

Where 07

 

 

Whenever possible, Gianluca and Ignazio sing some songs.

 

“Bruises,” a song by Lewis Capaldi is really beautiful. 

 

 

How beautiful are the words of this song “Fino a quando fa bene”? ❤️

 

Piero …… not received!

But surely all three of our guys will be training their voices, there is an appointment at the weekend, Monte Carlo awaits Il Volo !!

Where 08

Perfect, guys, you have enjoyed the holidays, the sun, the sea, the rest.

But now, work commitments are looming, and we can’t wait to hear your voices again and see you back at work.

See you soon:
Daniela
