Italy: No audience in Sanremo 2021 or transfer for later!
The future of Sanremo 2021 remains uncertain, as the current Italian press reports that RAI has rejected plans to hold the festival on the dates already announced, with an audience on the stands of the Teatro Ariston. The two options that Amadeus now has are the Sanremo on March 2 to 6 but without an audience or its postponement for April at least.
The plans to create a protective shield around the people involved in Sanremo and to stay on a cruise ship throughout the festival so that they have no other contact with the rest of the world seem to be permanently rejected by the RAI.
According to the trustworthy Il Messaggero, the two scenarios that are now being considered are the following:
- The Sanremo 2021 will take place on the announced dates (March 2 to 6), but without the presence of the audience.
- The postponement of the festival for April onwards, where they hope that the presence of the audience will be possible, since there will be more time for the vaccination.
In the event of course that the second scenario prevails, then Italy will have to choose its representative in the Eurovision Song Contest in a different way, since the meeting of the Heads of Delegations will take place on March 15 and until then the 41 countries participating in this year’s contest should have completed the procedures for the song selections.
