Il Volo, live argument between Piero Barone and Gianluca Ginoble

Tense nerves on live radio between two members of Il Volo. Piero Barone and Gianluca Ginoble, guests of Radio Number One without their colleague Ignazio Boschetto, were the protagonists of a dispute that arose from a reflection by Ginoble on the cover evening of the festival. On that occasion, the trio had performed “Who Wants to Live Forever by Queen” and Gianluca had explained that the choice of the song was made to show themselves in a different guise: “It was a different note because the people Maybe they're used to seeing us in an almost too serious way, in reality we can be other things too, it's nice that people appreciated that.”

Words that made the colleague explode: “Now I'm a little annoyed, 15 years, but can we always speak for all three?” Do you want to be something different? Continue to be something else, don't speak for me,” Piero Barone ordered him and shortly afterwards replied that he disagreed. When Gianluca tried to explain himself by saying: “Last night you did Queen, and maybe people didn’t expect it,” Piero repeated: “But you do it the way of Il Volo, in the singular, in the singular for yourself.” At this point, Ginoble asked him not to get angry. “You understand what I want to tell you…”.

Finally, Gianluca returned to the ranks: “We can never change the essence of Il Volo and we do not want to change it, but from here a new path begins,” he said, referring to “Capolavoro”, the song of Il Volo Festival. In 2019, in an interview with Verissimo after returning from a tour in South America, the three members of Il Volo explained that they had always had a “contentious” relationship. Dispute? “Yes, always, that’s what they said.” “We discuss, but there is a clear difference between the discussions today and those ten years ago. Back then there were still tantrums, but today we know each other well and know what bothers others about our character. We do everything together, we train together, we eat the same things, we are fundamentally different, but the relationship has strengthened over the years: now it's worse than marriage.” “Gianluca is mischievous,” Ignazio had said. Piero? “Very stubborn, almost dictator!”
