Singers Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble were discovered when the three singers appeared individually on Italy’s televised singing competition – “Ti lascio una canzone.”  The show’s creator/producer Roberto Cenci had the lads perform as a trio during the program’s fourth episode, thus launching the group’s career.

Now Il Volo is poised to release its new studio album, Grande Amore, landing in U.S. stores in September via Sony Music.

August is a good month for Il Volo’s fans.  The group’s concert film – “Il Volo: Live From Pompeii” – is airing on PBS stations and depicts Barone, Boschetto and Ginoble performing amid the ruins of the famous Italian city.  The last time a music act played there was in 1971 when Pink Floyd filmed “Live At Pompeii” in the city’s ancient amphitheatre.
