Eurovision 2022: RAI unveiled the first designs of the stage!

RAI, the host broadcaster for the 66th Eurovision Song Contest, has unveiled the impressive stage our 41 artists will be performing on in Turin this May.

As you read in our exclusive article months ago, acts can look forward to taking to The Sun Within – an ambitious new stage concept based on the movements and light of a kinetic sun.

Eurovision fans will witness a spectacular stage with the ability to showcase theatrical motion, which is framed by water and will have a lush Italian garden lapping up the rays in front of it.

Multimedia artist and stage designer Francesca Montinaro is the creative talent behind the design, which will present each of our 41 participating artists in a unique way, as they perform their songs to the rest of the world.

The kinetic sun, source of spectacular movements and tricks of light, rules the stage and represents our Italian attitude: always on the move, rebellious, creative, welcoming, passionate, intuitive. We are the ones with the sun within, and this is our way to be in this world!

Viewers tuning in to the 66th edition of Eurovision Song Contest – taking place in Turin on 10, 12 and 14 May – can look forward to becoming immersed in a breathtaking new visual experience, alongside the usual diverse musical soundscape that Eurovision fans have long cherished the contest for. RAI enthuses that the stage is both classic and modern at the same time, and manages to blend the digital with the analogue, demonstrating a range of light and movement.

A positive development, of course, is that looking at the photos released today by RAI, we notice that there is a forecast for the presence of the audience, in front of the stage. Just like before the pandemic. Normalcy returns to the Eurovision contest!

Eurovision 2022: Studio “Atelier Francesca Montinaro” stage designers for Eurovision 2022!

With a post in their social media, and especially Facebook, the team of “Atelier Francesca Montinaro” anoounced that they will be the stage designers for Eurovision 2022! This is the first time since 2016 that we will see a different team in this role. From 2016-2021, Florian Weilder was responsible for the stage designing of the contest.

In their Facebook post, the team mentioned:

It’s official.

Atelier Francesca Montinaro will be the stage designers for Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin. 

It was a hard race that we competed with very much excitment and strong feelings. A chase that used to keep us awake until the very first morning hours. But it was worth all that because RAI chose us at the end of the day. We received this letter with very much honour and we will work hard to give Italy a stage that will show the Italian soul to the whole Europe and world.

We would love to say more, even more, but we cannot reveal any details. From now on, months of hard but beautiful work begin to reach the grand opening of the third edition of Eurovision in Italy.

See you in May!”

The team is not amateur and definetely not new to Italian fans as they were also the stage designers for Sanremo 2013 and 2019.

You can see more of their amazing work in the official website.
