Qui la versione in italiano!
After the victory of Il Volo in Sanremo, many parodies of them and of their song “Grande Amore” spread on the web and on TV. Among the others, surely stands out the weekly sketch of the comic trio “I Malincomici” from the Italian TV program “Made in Sud”.
Just for you, dear Malincomici, and for everyone that would love to try to make a parody of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, or even for the people who have noticed some features in their personalities, we have decided to collect together all the tics, typical behaviours, way of walking, talking, singing and interact of Il Volo.

Suggestions are accepted with joy! (If you want, leave a comment below!)

Do you think this was a closed chapter? Of course it isn’t… we could never denied an applause to the brilliant mind that decided to match Il Volo’s ear-monitors and their microphones: in almost all their concerts and TV appearances, they use personalized microphones that have a coloured stripe between the handle and the speaker.
Guess the colours of the stripes.
Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca are funny because of the inflexions that emerge when they are interviewed and when they jokingly tease each other on the stage. Beyond those, however, there are other features that make Il Volo’s way of singing unique. Some of them are attributable to the need of pitch the voice. Continue reading
