Amadeus will be the artistic director and presenter of the 72nd edition of the Sanremo Festival, scheduled from 1 to 5 February 2022. This was decided by the new CEO of Rai, Carlo Fuortes, with the director of Rai1, Stefano Coletta. It will be the third Festival in a row for Amadeus. “The musical journey undertaken by Amadeus two years ago – declares Coletta – marked an important cultural change in the history of the Festival which led the Maneskin, winners of the last edition, to also win the Eurovision Song Contest, an important international recognition for Italian song. It is in this direction of innovation, one of the objectives of the Public Service, that Rai intends to continue to enhance the musical talent in an ever greater way through the most popular television event in the country “.
