Sanremo 2022 to Have Full Audience!
A Public Order and Safety Committee meeting took place this morning at the main police station in Sanremo. Why do we care? Well, it was decided that the Ariston Theatre can go back to a 100% capacity, thus giving the Sanremo Festival a green light to have a full audience!
You may recall in a previous update, there was a plan for a cruise ship to anchor at Sanremo. The mayor of Sanremo, Albero Biancheri, explains:
Health protocols have been clarified; there was the maximum collaboration on the part of all those present and I want to reiterate that the ship at anchor in Sanremo will not be a hotel. There will be no catering, but it will be a television studio and it will also be an important opportunity for the city and for the promotion of the whole region.
The Chief of Police of Imperia, Armando Nanei, spoke about the people and workers who will access the Ariston:
The workers will be super controlled. Those who will access the red carpet, and enter the Ariston, must be equipped with Super Green Pass, Ffp2 mask and all the required authorizations. For the spectators, only the green (vax) pass will be sufficient, but no rapid test.
The Chief of Police added:
We will do everything to avoid gatherings and to have the utmost respect for the rules. We are still finalizing what is necessary for admission to the theater, but the rules will be absolutely respected. At the entrance and exit of the Ariston there will be dedicated paths to avoid gatherings.
The mayor of Sanremo himself has assured that all evaluations are being made to ensure that the Festival takes place safely. He admits that the situation is delicate, but that by relying on vaccines and respecting all regulations, an event of this magnitude can happen successfully.
