The show

The wait is over today. Everything is ready in the small town of Liguria for the big celebration of Italian music, the 72nd Sanremo Festival! Amadeus will be the presenter, but also the artistic director of the festival for the third consecutive year, after the great success of the previous two years.

On the Ariston scene, Amadeus will not be alone. Each night, he will have different co-hosts by his side. On Prima Serata that will be Ornella Muti, an actress with a long career in film and television, widely known in Italy and internationally. Of course, in addition to Ornella Muti, his very good friend Fiorello will also be on his side.

Guests of the first night will be last year’s Sanremo winners Måneskin, who return to where it all started eleven months ago with their victory which led them to their triumph in Eurovision and not only.

Meduza, an electronic music group, will also be guests tonight.
