Host and artistic director Amadeus spoke this morning:

“I am happy to start this great adventure, every year is different from the previous ones. […] I am honored to have Gianni Morandi with me for five evenings, I don’t have to tell you but he’s the story not only of music but also of entertainment. So I feel good. Those who know me know that I love to surround myself with people who share my way of making a show that is simple, transparent, and conveys emotion.”

His co-host Gianni Morandi (Eurovision 1970) reminisced about his memories and hopes for Sanremo:

“I remember my first festival that I saw with my father, when Modugno was there, then I came here many times and now Amadeus has invited me. Sanremo becomes great when traces are left, perhaps it started with Baglioni, but in recent years it has returned to being important. Then the great thing is that people like Sanremo, it is important for Italians and I hope it will continue for decades”.

The Festival will air live on Rai1 and RaiPlay for five evenings (Tuesday-Saturday) from 20:30-01:45 CET.

Last year, Mahmood and Blanco stormed to victory at the 72nd Festival di Sanremo, winning the televote, the demoscopic jury, and the press vote. At Eurovision in Turin, the duo secured a 6th place finish with Brividi.
