THE FAIRY TALE GOES ON by Daniela

Perhaps many of you have already seen this video, done by IL VOLOCOMIO, but I want to translate the background words for you. This is the beautiful presentation made at the Verona concert in September 2015. Who reads is a famous Italian actor, Giancarlo Giannini, the video was made just to confirm the good words.

A modern fairytale does not start with “Once upon a time …..” because it happens here, and now.

A modern fable, has no dragons, nor princesses, as protagonists.

Start in Italy, think, in some cities of our beautiful province.

More than the characters, the real protagonists are: the passion that animates them and friendship.

The passion for the “bel canto” that takes possession of three kids, the friendship that, instead of the soccer field, grows in front of a large orchestra.

And what passion and friendship alone cannot, is achieved by talent.

Passion, friendship, talent, are not the names of three fairies, but when in life, rarely happens that they get together, as if they were, they realize magical things.

This modern fable does not have an ending, because it has just begun and is still to be written, and it speaks of three guys, who have taken flight, IL VOLO.

In this video of the concert in Verona 2015, Giancarlo Giannini introduces CANZONE PER TE, reading the first verse of the song.

Meanwhile, about MUSICA CHE RESTA, Emilio Munda (music writer) in an interview said:

It’s the first time I work with IL VOLO and I’m going to Sanremo, so a set of things that excites me so much.

I cannot say much about MUSICA CHE RESTA, except that it is a lyrical pop very suitable for them.

Let’s say it’s a dress that they wear very well.

And here are our guys in the backstage of Sanremo, a photo shoot during an interview.

And all of you, are you ready to listen to MUSICA CHE RESTA?

IL VOLO TO THE WORLD DAY OF YOUTH by Daniela

It was a memorable event. What about, Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero, so close to Pope Francis, in such an important event, followed by about 600 thousand young people present and millions of people on television?

It was very emotional and I think the guys have felt the weight of this great emotion on their shoulders and also of this great honor.

They were emotional, as we were, who followed them from afar. . . very touching and emotional.

Here is the video, for those who could not follow them live.

Also nice is this video taken from another angle.

Seeing them again causes shivering in me.

Of course they could not be presented to the world, the event was the World Youth Day, not IL VOLO, but they were there, present before the Pope, emotion to the stars!

Surely this experience will always remain in their hearts.

From that position they could see a tide of young people, united by moments of prayer and truly unique contemplation, the silence was impressive.

These videos was made by Gianluca and Piero, we see the Pope and the crowd –  really immense.

 

Instead, this video was made before the event.

P = This is a message for all young people like us.

G = We are honored to be here in Panama at WYD, you are so many, there are almost a million young people.

I = It will be a great emotion, also because for us it is the first time we sing for the Pope, we will sing a very special Ave Maria, we hope to be close to all the young people, with music, on this spiritual day.

P = Long live the WYD and the Pope.

G = bye

I = bye

Yesterday during the singing tests.

I am very happy that you all have also been able to enjoy the event live. By testing we saw that the TV2000 streaming channel was often stuck and so Pat did a search and saw that the EWTN channel was better for you.

Well, both channels worked and we did not miss a single instant of this event

Sunday, here in Italy, they sent on television, this little interview:

Presenter = Yesterday at the vigil  IL VOLO also sang, let’s see how this performance went.

P = Some time ago we had met Pope Francis in a private audience and we gave him, an AVE MARIA, a special record, just for him.

I = Surely it was a great experience of life, both for our personal lives, and also for our career.

P = This was the perfect opportunity to understand how beautiful and important it can be, to share all kinds of music.

G = We can say that it was one of the most beautiful experiences of our lives.

It all passed very quickly, but it was an indescribable moment.

The boys were very serious, as it should be on these occasions.

They are never out of place, always appropriate to the event.

I was very proud that IL VOLO had this wonderful opportunity, it was an honor, and they certainly did not waste it.

These are the words of the boys, “If someone had told us that one day we would sing for the Pope, we would hardly have believed it . . . . Never stop chasing your dreams.”

Tell me your impressions.
