il-volo-le-iene-2013On November 12th, 2013 – yes, 2013! – the Italian TV Show “Le Iene” first talked about Il Volo. A fantastic interview introducing them to Italy was aired. One of the reporters, Enrico Lucci, had previously visited Ignazio, Gianluca and Piero in their hometowns and then followed them in the USA, to attend their concert at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles.
We are glad to post this throwback today and provide you the English translation of the interview. Enjoy these outstanding memories on our post: Il Volo @ Le Iene

Il 12 novembre 2013 – sì, 2013! – lo show televisivo italiano “Le Iene” parlò per la prima volta de Il Volo, trasmettendo una fantastica intervista che li presentava all’Italia. Uno degli inviati, Enrico Lucci, in precedenza aveva fatto visita a Ignazio, Gianluca e Piero nei loro paesi natali e poi li aveva seguiti negli Stati Uniti per assistere al loro concerto al Gibson Amphitheater a Los Angeles.

Il Volo al Greek Theater a Los Angeles #throwback

Il Volo concert Los Angeles 2014Lo scorso anno proprio in questo giorno, una delle migliori esperienze per me, non solo come fan, non solo come manager di AAIV, ma anche, in molti sensi, una pietra miliare nella vita.

Il concerto de Il Volo a Los Angeles, un momento per celebrare la vita e un momento di grande divertimento con gli amici.

Tengo nel mio cuore i meravigliosi momenti con Piero, Ignazio, Gianluca, Hazel, Joanie, Wendy, Ricki, Mariana e tutti gli amici che ho incontrato là.

E spero di poter essere presto di nuovo insieme a voi!

Il concerto al Greek Theater è stato straordinario per molte persone. A tal riguardo, abbiamo letto spesso meravigliose esperienze.

Sanremo 2015 – two months ago, and now? / due mesi fa, e adesso?

Il Volo - Sanremo 2015Qui la versione in Italiano

For those who did not believe in the victory of Il Volo in Sanremo 2015 and even more, for those who believed that this victory was a produced event and therefore ephemeral… what a surprise! They are a success also in Italy.

A success proven by sales, by the crowds on the in-stores, by the increase in the number of fans and fan clubs and which will be ratified by the immense success that the Italian tour concerts will have.

Let’s remember how they arrived here in Italy. Let’s recall Sanremo 2015 on the same day they won the contest, exactly two months ago.

Il Volo Sanremo 2015- 4th episodeIn italiano:

Per tutti quelli che non credevano nella vittoria de Il Volo a Sanremo 2015 e, a maggior ragione, per coloro che credevano che questa vittoria fosse solo un evento già pianificato e quindi effimero… che sorpresa! Il Volo ha successo anche in Italia.

Un successo comprovato dalle vendite, dalla folla negli instore, dall’aumento del numero di fan e di fan club e che sarà confermato dal grande successo che il tour Italiano di concerti avrà. Successo, successo, successo…

Ricordiamo come sono arrivati fino a qui. Ricordiamo Sanremo 2015, nello stesso giorno in cui hanno vinto il festival, esattamente due mesi fa.

Il Volo – last December!

Il Volo and FansAll About Il Volo was launched last year soon after the Il Volo concert in Porto Alegre. Now I was browsing by our early posts and correcting things that the time or our failures as beginners left wrong. But I was also remembering the wonderful moments of Il Volo after their big tour, committed with all Christmas and promotional events on United States.

Time to sing Christmas songs on the Malls, to great people on special dinners, to talk about Buon Natale on PBS Stations. Amazing days that we will recall here, as well as I correct our mistakes. Who does nothing makes no mistakes. 🙂

So, remember this:

Ignazio Boschetto and his first concert – Marsala 2009 – ( -1)

Ignazio Boschetto - 2014 LA concertTomorrow is the great day: Ignazio Boschetto completes his 20th year of life. He is in Moscow with Il Volo and will celebrate his Birthday in concert. A for sure magnificent concert to the Russian people. Our friends of Il Volo Russia are glad and are supplying us with all the news!

We are so far, but also there on our thoughts, pampering Ignazio doing what we know: research and write.

This time we have two awesome collaborators: Liliana Andreanò and Gino De Vita. This two friends and teachers of Ignazio helped us to bring to the scene his first concert. His first big solo performance soon after Ti Lascio Una Canzone. A young boy, an evening of San Giovanni Battista,  20,000 people at Porta Nuova  in Marsala and the magic happened.

:: Ignazio Boschetto first concert – in English and Portuguese

Every June 24 is celebrate the feast of San Giovanni Battista – the saint patron of Marsala – and the city is often bursting with activities. Besides the services in the church and the traditional visit to the well of Sibilla, at the end of the evening the community gathers together on Porta Nuova to the fireworks spectacle. That was the date chosen for the first concert of Ignazio Boschetto.  – read the full article with photos and video

Thank you very much Liliana and Gino – memories are the flavor of life, the scent of the beautiful moments that happiness leaves on us.

Ignazio Boschetto week (-4) – enchanting Palermo!

Five year ago our favorite Birthday Boy received a very beautiful homage with a important name: the Oscar del Mediterraneo. While we wait for the magnificent concert that for sure Il Volo will perform on the exact date of Ignazio’s birthday, lets remember the very young Ignazio enchanting the audience in Palermo.

An old article rebuilt with more information. (no original, versão em português ao final)

Ignazio Boschetto receives de Oscar del Mediterraneo

Ignazio - Oscar del Mediterraneo 2009On June 14, 2009, at the auditorium of the Astoria Palace Hotel in Palermo took place the VII edizione del Premio Internazionale al Merito del Lavoro delle Attività Turistiche e Culturali, o Oscar del Mediterraneo. The prestigious award was created by Tony Marotta, director of the  Istituto Superiore di Scienze Lettere and Arti Del Mediterraneo – ISLAS -, of the Associazione Socio-Culturale Primosole and of the Accademia di Sicilia.

According to its purposes the Oscar del Mediterraneo intendeds to reward people who promote the education for the peace, reject all kinds of violence, defend human rights, have civil and social commitment and complete dedication to the arts,  literature,  leading the life with honesty, legality and freedom.

The beautiful ceremony conducted by Nino Graziano Luca included the presentation of several artists on the midst of the delivering of the prizes to personalities that excelled in the social and cultural context. A large audience attended the event and received with enthusiasm the whole program.

Ignazio - Oscar del Mediterraneo 2009In 2009, among the recipients stood out a boy  only 14 years old – Ignazio Boschetto – singer of Marsala, national success in  Ti Lascio Una Canzone of RAI1. Holder of an immense talent and an unusual stage presence to his age, Ignazio delighted those present in the auditorium with his clear and melodious voice. With the tenor Domenico Ghegghi he performed a fantastic duet – the song was O Sole Mio – that lead the audience to a lengthy standing ovation.

Tony Marotta, visibly moved and pleased with the success of the event, thanked the audience at the end of this night which had united art and social commitment.

Ignazio week (-5) – he returns to Custonaci

12º Festival della Canzone di CustonaciThe comments here and on the social networks are great. Sometimes we can talk a lot on our favorite theme: Il Volo and, this week, mainly about Ignazio. Like my grandma used to say: “he must be with red ears”. Brazilian joke 😀 …

The awesome thing is that we realize that all of them were winning contests before they met on… a contest. And it was only a matter of time for this meeting happen. Piero and Ignazio may have been close many times! However the Festival della Canzone di Custonaci seems to be the land of Ignazio because he won in 2008 and returned the following year as a guest.

Lets remember:

A special guest on the 12º Festival della Canzone di Custonaci

CustonaciCustonaci is a beautiful city of Sicily, located at the eastern end of the Gulf of Bonagia on a hill about 610 feet above the sea level.

A small city with more or less 5.500 inhabitants but with a lot of traditional events: religious as the Festa in Onore della Madonna di Custonaci and cultural events  as the Festival della Canzone di Custonaci.

12º Festival della Canzone di CustonaciThis year the Festival on its twelfth edition took place on August 20, 21 and 22, and was organized again by Franco Spada and the Associazione Tutto Musica.

Tony Colapinto – actor and director formed in Milan and Rome – conducted the competition which had involved the participation of many contestants. At the end of the three exciting evenings the jury announced its decision: Daniela Barbara won the 12º Festival della Canzone di Custonaci.

Ignazio Boschetto week (-6)

Ignazio Boschetto - 2014 LA concertToday, when I was thinking about this text I noticed a coincidence. We are at 6 days for the Birthday of Ignazio Boschetto and what I will talk about happened 6 years ago and include a coincidence.

On the end of August 2008, while Ignazio was winning the 11º Festival della Canzone di Custonaci, Piero Barone was about to bring home the trophy of the Festival Bruna Bennardo. Without knowing each other they were treading the paths that in the following year, would gather them together on Ti Lascio Una Canzone.

For the -6 days of the #IgnazioBoschettoWeek and for the #Happy20Ignazio All About Il Volo brings two #throwbacks:

1 – A new #throwback – Ignazio Boschetto won the 11º Festival della Canzone di Custonaci.

2 – A renewed #throwback – Ignazio Boschetto in the musical Streetlight in Marsala

3 – An unreleased photo of Ignazio on the Los Angeles concert in June, 2014.

Ignazio Boschetto week!

Ignazio Boschetto - 2014 LA concertNext Saturday will be the 20th anniversary of Ignazio Boschetto. A very special moment for him and for us as well. He will be entering his 21th year of life – a milestone for everyone -, and joining Piero on this amazing journey of been officially an adult.

Last May, he said on twitter that life is beautiful, and that he is happy to see how life gives us every day new feelings. We wish that these feelings – those who bring joy or those who bring pain – can be the support for growing up as talented, as authentic, as courageous as he already is.

So, this week will be an Ignazio’s week and we will start today remembering one of his beautiful moments before Il Volo:
