Italy: Sanremo 2023 finalists to be released on December 2 and 3?

We are three months away from the 73rd Sanremo Festival, where once again the winner will have the opportunity to represent their country in the Eurovision Song Contest. In case the Sanremo winner does not wish to participate in Eurovision, then RAI can choose any of the other finalists from the festival to represent them. 25 artists will compete for the Golden Lion, with three coming from Sanremo Giovani, which will take place on December 12.

In the past days, Italian media have been publishing lists of the possible names of artists expected to be seen at Sanremo 2023, and according to Il Messaggero, the official announcement of the artists for this year’s festival is expected to take place on two separate evenings, namely on December 2 and 3.

The announcement will be made by Amadeus, who is expected to reveal more about the festival on November 25th at Milan Music Week.

Last but not least, according to Il Messaggeroit, the number of songs collected for this year far exceeds that of last year.

Sanremo 2023 will take place from 7 to 11 February 2023. The voting rules remain unchanged. You can read the Sanremo regulations in detail here!
