Amadeus Announces Sanremo 2022 Covers

On Friday 4th February, the Sanremo Festival will host its Fourth Evening at the iconic Ariston Theatre. That night, all competing artists will not sing their songs that are in the competition, but instead they will perform songs from the 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. Most songs will be a duet with a guest artist, and the song may be Italian or international. This show typically offers a change in pace and a light evening as it is the night before the big final!

As in previous editions of the Italian music Festival, the result of the covers’ evening will have an impact on the final rankings of the Festival, as the orchestra will vote, conducted for the third year in a row by maestro Leonardo De Amicis.
