Marsala, August 25, 2015 – The beautiful scenery of Piazza della Vittoria and Porta Nuova was crowded when the evening came.

Ten thousand people were waiting in front of the Teatro Impero where a big stage was built for the Il Volo Band’s concert. The great event was supported by the Comune di Marsala.

Giampiero Grani, Salvatore Corazza, Giovanni Di Caprio, Marco Guidolotti and Patrizio Sacco were the stars of the event and had the special contribution of many other artists.

Michele Torpedine, manager of Il Volo performed on the drums, Gino de Vita on the guitars, Pietro Adragna on the accordion, while Serena Brancale and Monica Harem were the voices along with three very special guests.

Gianluca Ginoble, Piero Barone and Ignazio Boschetto – the last one is a citizen of Marsala – not only came to support their Band but also performed many songs enchanting everybody. Piero Barone sang Questo Piccolo Grande Amore with Serena Brancale and My Way with Gianluca Ginoble. A soft version of the “second” version of Tirichitolla was gladly accompanied by the audience and the show presented by Dario Piccolo was took over by the talent and irreverence of Ignazio Boschetto and his companions of Il Volo.

The Band showed a huge talent while dealing with all that wide repertoire and improvisation! An evening that will not be forgotten. Beside the artists, Fabio Ingrassia painted an upside down canvas that at the end of some songs revealed the image of Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca. A wonderful work. Marsala literally took flight.

During the evening, the mayor Alberto Di Girolamo with the president of the City Council, Enzo Sturiano, and the Assessor Lucia Cerniglia delivered awards to the members of Il Volo and to Michele Torpedine. The concert ended with Il Volo and the Band performing Grande Amore, the song that won Sanremo 2015, the flagship of the Grande Amore Tour 2015. Continue reading

Il Volo - Sanremo 2015Il Volo amazed the audience in Sanremo! No discussion about this! We all expected that but it was impossible to not feel the pressure, the thrill…
When Piero started to sing almost in falsetto I almost screamed. Not really a falsetto because it was a note he sings normally, but a kind of soft almost Ignazio tone. Yes they did something else… but I will comment this specially.

But the press is already publishing about this second episode of Sanremo 2015.

Il Volo links and news for Feb 9, 2014

Radio BocconiSanremo is buzzing! All the eyes are turning to there since yesterday and number of sources of information increase by hundreds. It is time to select and be moderated on publish and share.

Too much information is synonymous of misinformation. In this sense we all have to choose what to publish. Often the urge to publish, the will to be the first to post a picture, a link makes us forget to do a simple check: this information is new or we are repeating the same information from another source? this source is reliable and better than the last? this text, photo, video has good quality? this information will add something relevant to the event that we’re covering?

So I recommend: let’s chose carefully what publish, mainly on sites, instagram or facebook. Twitter can accept more ‘spam’ because it is easy to filter. We here will be very selective, not all the links, the focus is the information, the link is the way to know more, to check.

But… let’s go!

TV Sorrisi e Canzoni - Sanremo 2015In time of bets, and Il Volo is on the first place…, I bet that you were missing this post. Our links and news always come early in my morning, like 7:00 here or 10:00 Italy… But now things changed here, end of vacations, new schedule for 2015, my new year is beginning and it seems will not be an easy one. So, I had to take some decisions about the site and my commitment here.

All About Il Volo will be even more selective and a little more slow, not worrying with time, focusing on what is more important. Not all the links here and quick, only the best or those who brings really news. The others I will tweet when I can, as I did today on my intervals.
