Il Volo

Ancient Theatre, Sunday 12th June 2022 @9.00pm

 

The concert celebrates 10 years of incredible music.

Making global pop-opera sensation Il Volo performs again at the Ancient Greek-Roman Theatre of  Taormina.

l Volo is a group of three (unconventional) teenage boys that came to fame in Italy after appearing on the Italian talent show “Ti Lascio Una Canzone”.
They were promptly snapped up by the leading people in the music industry in Italy and their debut album quickly went platinum. Like Andrea Bocelli before them, they are Italians set for the international stage. Their appearance on American Idol in 2011 caused a frenzy of first week sales for the lads with further plans to launch themselves elsewhere in the world. Their appeal is definitely their quirky image coupled with their unexpectedly mature vocals. They cover old ground in the classical crossover sphere, but they certainly package it in a new and exciting way. With undeniably strong voices and impeccable charm, Il Volo are hard to resist.

The three singers are tenors Piero Barone (born 1993) and Ignazio Boschetto (born 1994), and baritone Gianluca Ginoble (born 1995).

Narrazioni a Natale 2021

TAOBUK presents

Narrazioni a Natale

Aspettando Taobuk

Palazzo Duchi di Santo Stefano, January 5th 2022 @ 5.00pm

Free entrance

 

Book presentation of “100storie… ed un’intervista” by Claudia Benassai Costantino, Nicolò Edizioni

Works will be held in Italian.

 

Here the Italian press release.

La città del Centauro, prima ancora di diventare ambita meta estiva dei flussi internazionali, è stata a lungo una delle capitali mondiali del turismo invernale. Taormina può e deve tornare ad esserlo, puntando a destagionalizzare e incrementare l’offerta turistica e culturale, soprattutto durante la lunga vacanza delle festività natalizie e di fine anno. È in questa prospettiva che il Comune guidato dal sindaco Mario Bolognari promuove Narrazioni a Natale. Aspettando Taobuk, il nuovo ciclo di incontri con l’autore, affidandone l’organizzazione al prestigioso festival letterario.In attesa della dodicesima edizione di Taobuk che si svolgerà il prossimo giugno, la rassegna natalizia si terrà nel Palazzo dei Duchi di Santo Stefano. Gli eventi avranno inizio alle ore 17:00 e vedranno l’intervento di scrittori e intellettuali di chiara fama.

Il focus del terzo e ultimo incontro, previsto per il 5 gennaio, sarà sulle insospettabili risorse umane del territorio messinese. Le vite vere narrate dalla giornalista siciliana Claudia Benassai, ogni domenica, dal 2018 ad oggi, sulle pagine della “Gazzetta del Sud”, si sono finalmente trasformate in un libro, 100 storie…e un’intervista, pubblicato dall’editore zancleo Costantino Di Nicolò, che racconta di messinesi che ce l’hanno fatta. Sono storie ordinarie, che a volte diventano straordinarie e raccontano un altro volto della città dello Stretto: quello di una Messina produttiva, che sa farsi strada in Sicilia e nel Mondo.
