Sanremo 2025: Carlo Conti Announced as Host and Artistic Director

The eagerly awaited announcement has finally arrived: Carlo Conti will be the host and artistic director of Sanremo 2025 and 2026. This decision follows the five successful editions led by Amadeus.

The announcement was made during the Tg1 broadcast at 8 AM on Wednesday, May 22. Carlo Conti, who has signed a two-year contract, will be returning for his fourth and fifth editions after previously hosting three consecutive editions from 2015 to 2017.

Here are Carlo Conti’s first statements:

I Conti tornano! After seven years, I will try to build on the work done by Baglioni and Amadeus. The first person to message me was Fiorello. I am grateful for all the affection from the people at Rai. Hosting Sanremo for the next two years, 2025 and 2026, will be a wonderful way to celebrate my 40 years at Rai. From today, I will start thinking about the regulations, then I will begin listening to the songs and start planning the team on stage. I don’t think Pieraccioni and Panariello will be regulars, as I always try to mix up the guests.”

The official Rai statement reads:

“A unanimous decision by the company’s top executives, CEO Roberto Sergio and General Director Giampaolo Rossi in agreement with Prime Time Entertainment Director Marcello Ciannamea. For the next two years, Conti will steer the most important national multimedia event organized by Rai and the Municipality of Sanremo. For Conti, this is not just a return to the Festival but a new challenge aimed at continuing to promote and highlight new trends, as he did in his successful editions from 2015 to 2017, which launched artists who are now key figures in Italian music. The Artistic Director is already at work planning a Festival full of surprises and novelties.”
