Another huge step towards the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest occured on Tuesday. The construction of the Eurovision stage at the PalaAlpitour has begun! It is being overseen by the Atelier Francesca Montinaro who won the bid to design the stage, which was announced 18th February.
The news was made official on Tuesday on Atelier Francesca Montinaro’s Instagram with the caption: “Here we are in Turin. Let’s start building the stage that will host a great united and talented Europe.”
Francesca has previously designed the stage at the Sanremo Festival twice: in 2013 and 2019, while “The Sun Within” design that is now being built in Turin is her first Eurovision stage.
So far, we have only seen some renderings of what the stage will look like. A media release hinted at theatrical motions, water, and a “lush Italian garden” as elements that will be part of the design. Meanwhile, Francesca Montinaro has released three new renderings of the stage in action on her Instagram to celebrate the start of constuction:
