Sanremo 2024 is just a few months away, and judging from what has been revealed recently, it will likely be the most spectacular edition in its recent history. According to recent speculation, which if confirmed will in fact cause a musical sensation, the Festival’s previous winners and third-place winners in the Eurovision Song Contest, Il Volo, will perform a duet with the fan favorite, Annalisa.
Annalisa and Il Volo aiming for victory at the Teatro Ariston?
Annalisa is a part of Warner Music, while Il Volo are a part of Sony. They are both being managed by the same management agency, Friends & Partners. Is it a possible scenario that the Ferdinando Salzano-led agency is encouraging them to enter the festival together in order to increase their chances of winning?
The composers of their song, namely Edwyn Roberts and Stefano Marletta, are also mentioned in various articles published on the Iternet. Edwyn Roberts and Stefano Marletta are both renowned writers and are accredited of several successful singles.
Still, this won’t be the first time Annalisa and Il Volo have collaborated. A few months prior, their cover performance of the famous “A Star Is Born” song, “Shallow”, was praised.
