GLEANINGS ON IL VOLO by Daniela

We know that young Korean singers appreciate the music of Il Volo very much, in fact they often offer their songs, even in the Italian language.

It must be really difficult for them, a language so different from their own, but they have sensed that our boys’ songs are beautiful in their original language.

Yesterday, on Twitter, thanks to ItaGuyIV, the videos of two songs were published, don’t pay attention to the syncro, because the audio is not well synchronized with the video, ………. but you already have heard these songs ??

Yes,  it is MUSICA CHE RESTA and VICINISSIMO, but what a strange impression to hear these sung like this. Anyway congratulations to these three Asian guys.

It seems to be a competition performance and seeing the reactions of the participating boys (all very young) it seems to me that this genre is very popular.
It has a certain effect to think that the songs of Il Volo are taken as a model, analyzed and copied for a singing competition.

But I am proud of this.

Of course, they are still far from imitating the union of the voices of our three boys!!


While trying to find news about our three boys, there was this nice message from IL VOLO:

You have always been close to us with great affection, with your voices that accompanied ours during concerts, with your heart and with your words also through the many messages you send us. This time it is we who send you a message full of affection, we are here to gather around you in this particularly difficult period. We will come out stronger than before, together!

After the concert in Monte Carlo, and the party in Sicily, Piero Ignazio and Gianluca returned to their homes.

Sometimes, some fans have an unexpected meeting, and then publish the photos and so we too can see where our favorites are.

Ignazio was photographed in a barber shop in Milazzo, a Sicilian town.

Piero, visited the beautiful Palatine Chapel in Palermo.

GLEAN 03

The Palatine Chapel is located in the Norman Palace and is entirely covered with gold mosaics from the Byzantine era.

It is a Unesco heritage site.

Gianluca went to L’Aquila to see the PERDONANZA CELESTINIANA 2020.

GLEAN 05

If you remember, in 2019, a year ago, IL Volo did the concert for the Perdonanza Celestiniana and it was a great success.

In this photo, Gianluca with master Leonardo de Amicis, who directed Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero at TI LASCIO UNA CANZONE. 

The photo was posted by Leonardo de Amicis with this dedication: 

“Friendship, affection and esteem.”


The latest news is that Il Volo will participate in an event in the Arena in Verona, to support the “invisible” people (workers, electricians, audio technicians, etc.) who work for the concerts and that COVID19 has reduced without work.

There will be many singers including Il Volo. The event will be broadcast by RAI 1 on 5 September.

For now, that’s it.

Let me know what you think of Korean singers singing in Italian.

As for Piero Ignazio and Gianluca, even if it will be for one song only, I am really happy to see them on RAI1, in a few days.

A REALLY SPECIAL VIDEO by Daniela

During the concert in Rome, the boys sang, among the many songs, also “VICINISSIMO”.

VICINISSIMO 01

Piero Ignazio and Gianluca,  sang this song, with the company of some children and even a not-very-young person.

A very sweet video came out, which perhaps not all of you have seen, also before the song there are some nice dialogues, which I now translate to you.

Here is the video.

G= Hello baby, what’s your name?
S = Sofia
G = Are you happy to be here?
S = Yes
G = Love (meanwhile Ignazio raises a very small child on stage)
Hello baby, what’s your name?
E = Emma
G = Emma !!
I = Emma, who is your favorite? Don’t tell me Piero, otherwise I’ll go. So who do you like?
P = (only Piero’s voice is heard) Emma, Emma …… (everyone laughs, I think Piero shows Emma a sign to say his name)
I = (imitating the child) ACHILLE LAURO (Achille Lauro is a young singer who has been in Sanremo 2019, he is very disputed because it seems that in his songs he praises drugs.) (people laugh)

VICINISSIMO 02

G = It’s nice to see people of all ages at our concerts, this is beautiful, and our goal is to get to everyone’s heart, especially even small children like these, we fell in love with this music when we had the their age, and it’s nice to see them here at our concert.
I = (to Emma) But do you want to stay here during the next song?
P = (Piero’s voice) I remind you that the last time you sang with a child next to you, you fell off the stage.
G = Come and say hi to Piero, give Piero a little kiss.
P = (he is sitting) Love, I do not move, otherwise I break my pants.
G = (to Sofia) Do you want to be close to Ignazio?
I = (to Emma) Do you want to stay here? (she says no, with her head), do you want mom? (Emma says yes with her head)
I = (to Emma) But do you want to stay here during the next song?
P = (Piero’s voice, in a tone of playful reproach) I remind you that the last time you sang with a child next to you, you fell off the stage.

VICINISSIMO 03

They start “VICINISSIMO” and the two babies remain on the stage between Gianluca and Ignazio, while Ignazio makes Emma sit, some of the people tell him to be careful, so he makes a face that seems to mean, don’t bring bad luck. (remembers Tampa)

The video moves on to Piero, who is a little further away and while the image shows us Piero, a woman with dark glasses, approaches Gianluca and Ignazio, and will remain close to the boys for the rest of the song. Ignazio and Gianluca are very sweet, both with girls and women.

Eventually it will be discovered that this woman came from England to see IL VOLO, she made this trip because, for now, there are no scheduled dates in England. She is 99 years old, walks little and often uses wheelchair support, was accompanied in Italy by two other women (who are also seen on video) who take care of her.

Ignazio holds an arm around the woman’s neck affectionately, while Gianluca is always close to the two little girls. Piero is joined by two other little girls.

VICINISSIMO 04

VICINISSIMO 05

It is really a video of a unique sweetness, both for the words of this song, and in particular for the beautiful and spontaneous images.

These beautiful moments make us admire your personality even more.
Impossible not to be fascinated.

A hug to you!
Daniela
