Good afternoon everyone! Here is Martina. In the last two days news popped everywhere on web and so we think a post is definitely needed. The #GrandeAmoreTour is about to start – we are so happy and excited. Speaking about that, have you seen our special album of the tour?
Let’s start with the news, hoping to succeed in doing a mental order.
The last news for 17th June, 2015
:: In Roccaraso there is a kid, Iaia, who is ill. Very ill. All the town and all Abruzzo is trying to help her to get better. Yesterday evening the guys had dinner with this little girls and her family, in the restaurant “Il Girarrosto”. The photos were shared by the chef Nando Cinque and by Gianluca’s mum Eleonora. On a poster outside the restaurant was written “Il sogno di Iaia e Il Volo, una gran bella storia di amicizia” [Iaia’s dream and Il Volo, a great beautiful story of friendship].
:: At the ice-cream parlour “Il Chiosco”, Canicattì, finally arrived the ice-cream flavour “Il Volo”, even for those who have lactose intolerance! Thanks Massimo Messina for having shared the photos – now we are curious: what would be the taste of this ice-cream flavour? Please let us know. We are waiting with trepidation.
:: The manager of the group, Michele Torpedine, will be part of the jury of the next edition of “Ti Lascio una Canzone”. The program hosted by Antonella Clerici launched Il Volo in 2009, during the second edition. It was Michele that saw the “best three voices” of the program and decided to take them under his wing. He discovered also famous personalities like Zucchero, Giorgia and Bocelli and in this article it is said that he could be the “male version” of Mara Maionchi, former judge of X Factor Italian Edition. – Michele Torpedine, manager de Il Volo, sarà in giuria a “Ti lascio una canzone” – on TVZOOM (June 17, 2015 in Italian)
News for 18th June, 2015
Let’s move to today’s news: the atmosphere is full of excitement for tonight, in which the Italian Summer Tour of Il Volo will finally begin, after their concerts in Pompeii and Locarno and their participation to the fundraising event in Assisi.
:: This morning Gianluca’s mum shared some photos of the rehearsals. The concert will be amazing and unforgettable for sure.
:: Roccaraso greeted Il Volo in the best way possible: fans brought some presents to them. They gave to Gianluca a red and yellow swim cap (these are the colours of the football team Roma), to Ignazio a black and white swim cap (because of the football team Juventus) and to Piero bow tie, red like his glasses. The guys were very impressed and pleased and said that they would love to come back to Roccaraso next winter to ski. The Mayor of the town, Francesco Di Donato, is a good skier and Ignazio asked him to teach them ski. That would be lovely to see. Di Donato also said that he and the whole town were very impressed by the “wonderful simplicity” of the guys, that conquered all the hearts. – Roccaraso in delirio per l’arrivo de ‘Il Volo’. Questa sera l’attesa esibizione del trio canoro – on AbruzzoLive (June 18, 2015 in Italian)
:: Do you remember that on 16th June, 2015 Il Volo was in Bracciano to do a photo shoot? According to many newspapers, they filmed in the historical centre of the town some scenes of a video. One of them was riding a Vespa, an Italian motorbike that many of you probably remeber because of the film “Roman Holiday” with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck – be ready, a new video is about to be released! What if the video would be, indeed, the one of “Vacanze Romane”? Wouldn’t it be wonderful? – Il Volo a Bracciano: le riprese nel centro storico – on L’agone (June 17, 2015 in Italian) and A Bracciano riprese con “Il Volo” al centro storico – on Centumcellae News (June 18, 2015 in Italian)
:: But the concert of tonight isn’t the only event to wait with trepidation! Tomorrow evening (Friday, 19th June) will be aired on RAI 1 the special episode of “Porta a Porta“, dedicated to the journey of Il Volo and Bruno Vespa in the ‘Big Apple’, searching for the Italians that moved there in various ages to search for a better life. It looks to be very funny but also touching: the guys met people like Lidia Bastianich, Joe Bastianich’s mum; some firemen that helped during the tragic 11th September, 2001; the famous director Woody Allen and others. Don’t miss it! It will be aired also in streaming on the site RAI.Tv. – IL VOLO A NEW YORK – SPECIALE PORTA A PORTA – on Porta a Porta website (in Italian) and Il Volo a New York – Speciale Porta a Porta in prima serata: le anticipazioni – on International Business Times (June 16, 2015 in Italian)
Have a great day! Soon updates.
