ABOUT IL VOLO
In May 2009, three fresh-faced teenagers, Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble, appeared on the popular Italian talent show “Ti Lascio Una Canzone” and dazzled television viewers with their flawless rendition of the Neapolitan standard “O Sole Mio.” The boys, who won the competition easily, decided their group needed a name. “Il Volo,” meaning “flight,” was chosen to signify the feeling that these three young tenors were about to spread their wings and fly.
