This year, the 72nd edition of San Remo will take place in Teatro Ariston, in the small town of Liguria, with some small changes due to bate the duration of the festival. As it has been announced from All Music Italia a reliable source, Amadeus is planning limit the number of artists who are about to compete in the Big Category to 20 and also abolish the category of New Artists.
Last year’s version of San Remo has been completed with a huge success, choosing the winners of this year’s Eurovision edition, Maneskin. However, viewers from all over Europe have been complaining due to the excessive duration of the festival. As a result of that, Amadeus decided to have less than 26 Campioni, last year’s number, in the main category of 20 artists and remove the category for New Artists called “Nuove Proposte”, just like 2019.
Amadeu’s main plan is to have two winners of Sanremo Giovani, happening in the 16th of December, participating in the festival’s big category, which means that among the 20 participants, who are about to compete for Golden Lion Trophy, the two of them will be the winners of Sanremo Giovani.
Meanwhile, eurofans are still waiting for the announcement of the host country and RAI published a video which includes all the great things the country has achieved the last few months with “Zitti e Buoni” playing in the background.
