Italy is full of music and who knows the history of Il Volo not only after Ti Lascio Una Canzone, but also the individual lifeline of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, knows about their early participation on Festivals, Contests and many other events. A brief research on our archives will show many moments on their career before Il Volo, moments that helped to build what today amaze all of us.
They had being participating on festivals and musical contests since then, no more as singers, but as special guests. And, now, Ignazio amazed us, composing songs that new artists carry with competence in important events. Everybody remember Ignazio’s “Come in paradiso” presented on Sanremo D.O.C. And now, he is again in a final of one of more prestigious musical events in Italy with a song.
This week we are near another final of a traditional festival: the festival of “Voci Nuove Volti Nuovi”, better known as “Festival di Castrocaro”, now on its 57º edition. This festival dates back to 1957 and had a great highlight on the decades of 1960 and 1970, when many important artists were launched from the festival. Among the great artists launched from the festival we can find Zucchero, Laura Pausini and Eros Ramazzotti.
The contest occurs in many steps. From a initial selection, passing by the Academy, where the future contestants learn from qualified artists and technicians, singers, musicians and producers and are selected to the quarter finals, semifinals and then for the great final. Really a hard test of talent involving about 600 contestants.
Chiara Cusumano and Giorgia Vassalo won all this steps in 2014 and now the Duo Sisters are going to the finals. RAI 1 is airing the episodes where 10 contestants where selected for the great final: Objetivo Castrocaro 2014.
For those that do not remember the Duo Sisters were special guests and performed on the opening of the concert Amadè-Boschetto on February 2, 2014. This talented girls climbed all the steps and will be on the great final of the Festival de Castrocaro on August 30, 2014. The show will be conducted by Pupo, with Gigi D’Alessio, Anna Tatangelo, Giancarlo Magalli and Gigliola Cinquetti on the jury. RAI 1 will broadcast Live the final of the Festival di Castrocaro.
On an interview to Fattiitaliani, Giorgia and Chiara talked about their career, specially concerning the participation on the Festival di Castrocaro, their main goal at this moment. For the final they will perform “Un amore così grande” (Guido Maria Ferilli) and the unheard “Paura d’amare”. “Paura d’amare“, which have a long story according to Chiara and Giorgia, maybe a great surprise and a new milestone not only on the career of the Duo Sisters. According to Marsala C’è (published also on Marsala Sport) “Paura d’amare” is a song composed by Ignazio Boschetto.
Amazing news! News that had the preview weeks ago when Ignazio Boschetto and Gino de Vita shared a photo and talked about a ‘work in progress’ with the Duo Sisters. Now the work is ready to shine. Ignazio with the song and arrangements, Gino with the guitars.
This is an awesome news and we will stay close and alert. Ignazio is a talented singer and song writer and more and more his work will be on highlight. All About Il Volo wishes all the best to Chiara and Giorgia on the finals of the Festival di Castrocaro.
Whatch the video with images of the Duo Sisters when they were selected to the finals. Chiara Cusumano told us that the music they are singing is not “Paura d’Amare” by Ignazio Boschetto. We will have to wait August 30!
