ph. All About Il Volo

Quest’estate si prospetta molto importante per Piero, Ignazio e Gianluca, perché faranno un tour completamente italiano, dopo il grande successo ottenuto all’estero. In origine erano state previste 6 date, cresciute fino a divenire 24: forse continueranno a crescere!
Con tutti gli eventi e gli impegni de Il Volo, è facile perderne le tracce: in questo post abbiamo raccolto tutti i loro step per aiutarvi a ricordare questo meraviglioso tour e questa fantastica estate, in cui tutti voi urlerete “GRANDE AMORE!!!”

Date un’occhiata agli album sulla pagina Facebook di All About Il Volo:

Il tour è cominciato con un appuntamento particolare a Pompei, il 10 giugno. Il Volo si è recato tra le antiche rovine per registrare uno speciale per la Detroit Public Television, sulla scia dei tre precedenti PBS (Il Volo… takes flight, Il Volo We Are Love and Il Volo Buon Natale). La scaletta era stata predisposta differentemente da quella del resto dei concerti del tour e le aspettative erano alte, anche se sono state completamente soddisfatte. Piero, Ignazio e Gianluca hanno dedicato ogni canzone al pubblico Americano e all’inizio della serata hanno esclamato: “Benvenuti in Italia!”. Il PBS è stato trasmesso a Detroit il 6 luglio e sarà mandato in onda in tutta l’America ad Agosto. Presto anche il resto del mondo potrà comprare il DVD e permettere a Il Volo di incantare le famiglie.

Per saperne di più:

Il giorno seguente, 11 giugno, RA1 ha trasmesso il concerto della Polizia di Stato “Esserci Sempre” presentato da Alessandro Greco, registrato in precedenza, al quale Il Volo aveva partecipato insieme a Lorenzo Fragola e altri artisti.

Per saperne di più:

Il Volo si è inseguito esibito nella Piazza Grande di Locarno il 12 giugno. Anche se Locarno si trova in Svizzera, con questa data è iniziato il tour italiano del gruppo. Nemmeno la pioggia ha fermato il pubblico dal presenziare al concerto scherzando con Il Volo, che ha cantato visibilmente emozionato: Piero, Ignazio e Gianluca in quel giorno hanno incontrato per la prima volta il loro nuovo pubblico, italiano, e i sentimenti scaturiti da questa esperienza si possono percepire dai video che sono apparsi su internet. In quel concerto, Ignazio ha cantato Unchained Melody da solo, senza Gianluca.

ph. All About Il Volo

This summer is about to be very important for Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, because they will do an entirely Italian tour, after all the success they had abroad. Originally, they had to do 6 dates, that increased and became more than 24 – and maybe they will continue to grow!
With all the dates and the activities of Il Volo, is easy to lost their tracks: in this post we collected all their steps to help you to remember this amazing tour and amazing Summer, in which everybody will scream “GRANDE AMORE!!!!”

Have a look on the special albums on All About Il Volo’s Facebook Page:

The Tour started with a particular date, in Pompeii, on June 10th. Il Volo went there to record live from the ancient ruins a special concert for Detroit Public Television, like the ones they did before (Il Volo… takes flight, Il Volo We Are Love and Il Volo Buon Natale). The playlist was different from the one sang in the following concerts and the expectation was high, although extremely pleased. They directed the songs to the American audience and started the evening exclaiming: “Welcome to Italy!” The PBS was broadcasted in Detroit on July 6th and will be aired all over America in August. Soon even the rest of the world could buy the DVD and let Il Volo enchanted the families.

To know more:

On June 11th was broadcasted on RAI1 the pre-recorded concert “Esserci Sempre, concerto della Polizia di Stato”, in which Il Volo sang along with Lorenzo Fragola and other artists. The evening was hosted by Alessandro Greco.

To know more:

Il Volo then performed in Locarno, live from the Piazza Grande, on June 12th. Even if Locarno is in Switzerland, with this date the Italian tour of Il Volo began. Not even the rain stopped the audience from attending the concert and joking around with Il Volo, that performed on the stage in a very emotional state: in Locarno they first met their Italian audience and all the feelings could be seen in the few videos that popped on Internet after that night. That was the concert in which Ignazio performed Unchained Melody alone.

Il Volo a Roccaraso, un altro sogno per Iaia

ph. reteabruzzo

Il 18 giugno 2015 Il Volo si è esibito a Roccaraso con un magnifico concerto. Magnifico per via del loro grande talento e per il loro immenso cuore. Questo evento è stato dedicato a una “principessa speciale”: la piccola Iaia, una bambina gravemente ammalata di una rara malattia, che ha commosso l’Italia intera per la sua triste storia e la grande voglia di vivere.

Tre anni fa è iniziato il suo calvario e presto i suoi genitori hanno scoperto che la figlia soffriva di una rara forma tumorale, che avrebbe potuto essere curata solamente in una clinica specializzata negli Stati Uniti. Purtroppo, il costo delle cure era troppo elevato, ma la famiglia non si è arresa e un giorno fortunato il giocatore del Lanciano Lorenzo Costantini ha preso a cuore la vicenda di Iaia e ha innescato una catena di solidarietà che ha coinvolto anche il Papa. In pochi mesi, la famiglia ha raccolto 800 mila euro e ha fondato una Onlus benefica chiamata “Il Sogno di Iaia” per raccogliere ulteriori donazioni: presto Iaia è riuscita a volare a New York per essere curata al Memorial Sloan-Kattering Cancer Center.

Il Volo links & news for February 1st, 2015

guests!We are already in the second month of the year! The time flew and also my deserved vacations.  Since yesterday I am on the move to come back home and organize everything to my return to work.

And I have guests home since last month 🙂 This weekend they went to the beach but left here 2 furry beings that have their own habits and sense of humor. Well they owned my house… and I wake up with the 2 over my bed staring at me. Then they ran to the kitchen and sat beside 2 small bowls… still staring at me…  The last time I looked for them, one was sleeping on my T shirts and the other is hunting something on the kitchen (I really do not want to figure who is).

But let’s go to the news, although I have not only news to record here. I am late! Stay tuned we are updating all the time!

For their first participation in the competition of the Ariston, obviously as part of the Big, the three twentysomethings Il Volo chose the song “Grande amore”, a song about love seen in the perspective of their peers.” – Di Sabatino, Il Volo, Dear Jack: l’Abruzzo conquista l’Ariston – Il Centro (Jan 31, 2015 in Italian)

He also said that they are 3 young men with the goal to conquer Italia with the pop lyric genre, which they are among the few singers to perform.

Il Volo week – everybody is Ignazio

Lazy weekend

We are saying that ‘everybody is Ignazio’ because this last days all Il Volo were trying to hide pretty well. Neither our social networks lover Gianluca has not show up so much.

But the last weekend began with Gianluca saying that it was a lazy weekend and publishing this lovely photo. It is not needed to say that all #ilvolover are volunteers to be lazy with him…

And the weekend was quiet (at least for us). A time to think of the future for our team. Small team now 🙂 Hazel and me have some decisions to take and, some of them are not easy.

Pietro and Piero

Happy Birthday, Pietro!

And the next news we had came from Piero announcing the birthday of his beloved nonno Pietro, what gave us the opportunity to share nice informations about this amazing poet of Sicily, who is the grandfather of Piero Barone. We are so glad that Pietro share his birthday with All About Il Volo. Because

And we took advantage of the lack of news about Il Volo and finished our birthday articles. We consider our birthday the day of the Il Volo concert in Porto Alegre, because it was on this day that I, Mari Russu, build this site on my mind. And after a year All About Il Volo is a reference in content about Il Volo.

Our inertia was broken when we found the press release of RAI 1 announcing the appearance of Il Volo on the show Porta a Porta of Bruno Vespa. Just when Il Volo announced they are going to Rome on Nov 10 and we all are waiting for news.

False alarm… Soon we received a message of Paolo Di Vincenzo informing that the performance of Il Volo will be aired soon on Porta a Porta. And here we return to the always mentioned gap on the communications of Il Volo. They need a press assessor to take care of their agenda and the communications with media and fans. We trust Paolo Di Vincenzo because he is a great writer and journalist and also because he did an amazing job for Il Volo during the Italian tour but they must have official communication channels. Mr Paolo Di Vincenzo can be a good choice!

In Rome, where we do not know for sure what they did, Il Volo met Alberto Di Chiara – the former soccer player and sports director -, and beautiful photos were shared on the networks.

Piero on the train to Bologna

From Rome, Piero went to Bologna and about Gianluca and Ignazio, I think they come back home. Ignazio, as always, share his thoughts through music: L’Emozione Non Ha Voce.

… Let’s say that I always wanted an Ipod with glasses… seriously!

And the week that began with not so many news brought us one more: Paura D’Amare, the song composed by Ignazio Boschetto and presented on the 57º Edizione del Festival di Castrocaro by Chiara Cusumano and Giorgia Vassalo – the Duo Sisters -, was recorded and will be released with the CD compilation of the Festival. On Nov 14 in digital format and until the end of November on the stores.

On Nov 11, Gianluca attended the concert of Emma Marrone at the Palasport Giovanni Paolo II in Pescara. Gianluca shared a picture and wrote: – Brown sei mitica @MarroneEmma xxx #emmamarrone Emma Marrone soon reply!

At the end of the concert, Gianluca posed with the banner of the campaign “Il sogno di Iala”, about which we did an article.

It is Friday again and another week is ending. Let’s see what happen on the Il Volo land. For now, keep voting on Il Volo for “Best International Male Artist Or Group Of The Year”on the Latin Music Italian Award. If it is not the Grammy, on the other hand it is an excellent opportunity to unite the Fan Clubs and to share Il Volo with the fans of other artists.

Gianluca Ginoble – and the Dream of Iaia

Gianluca Ginoble and Iala dreamWe like to see that all Il Volo members are constantly involved on social causes. Gianluca Ginoble kindly embraced the fight of “The dream of Iaia“.

Today, we received an alert from Azzurra Marcozzi – from Radio G Giulianova -, with a photo of Gianluca shared by Giammaria Di Padova .

Azzurra Marcozzi explains:
# Iaia is a beautiful little girl of 6 years. Two years ago, in a summer that seemed like so many others, she was diagnosed with a terrible disease. It’s called neuroblastoma, a rare cancer that has little chance of survival. Iaia was treated in Italy and was well. But this disease is very aggressive and could be a relapse. It unfortunately happened this summer and now she needs help to do a treatment on the United States, at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. #

Il sogno di IalaEverybody can help through a non-profit organization that was established for this very purpose and has the title in his program: “The dream of Iaia”.

The information is on the banner beside. And you can also go to the website of the campaign: Il sogno di Iaia for more information.

We are proud of you Gianluca! A beautiful example of solidarity and engagement with the life of your community. We hope Iala wins this fight with the help of everybody.
