Tomorrow, January 10, 2022, Stefano Lo Russo, Mayor of Turin, will meet with Culture Advisor Rosanna Purchia and Tourism and Event Advisor Mimmo Carretta to review the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.
According to the newspaper “La Stampa“, the summit will also discuss adjustments to the preparation of the event due to Covid-19. As long as the competition is going to take place, the organization of all side events must necessarily adjust according to the state of the pandemic.
According to the Turin newspaper, the event is going on and sponsorship problems would be resolved in order to meet in the best possible way the expectations of the financial categories of Turin. There should also be no problems in the production of the event, which will be attended by local companies and professionals. All those working on the Eurovision Song Contest hope that the infections will reach a peak in the coming weeks and that the increase in vaccination coverage will allow for a reduction of the measures.
The semifinal allocation draw is going to take place on January 25. The handover ceremony between Rotterdam and Turin will also take place during this ceremony. The event, to be held at the Palazzo Madama, is expected to be attended by about 100 people, including a delegation from the Netherlands, led by Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb, RAI and EBU leaders. A revision of the framework program is likely in the light of the evolution of infections in Italy and the rest of Europe.
We remind you that the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 is going to take place on May 10, 12 and 14 at the PalaOlimpico in Turin.
