Eurovision 2022: More details about the Green Room released!

More information was announced by the stage designer of this year’s contest Francesca Montinaro, presenting the Green Room for the Eurovision 2022 Song Contest.

Stage designer Francesca explained that her inspiration for designing the Green Room for this year’s Eurovision is a verdant garden. Home plants and Italian gardens, along with creating a connection with nature, are the main source of inspiration for the design.

The concept behind this year’s scene is “The Sun Within” which is based on the movements and light of a moving sun. The stage is able to show theatrical movement, which is framed by water and has a lush Italian garden surrounding the rays in front of it. This lush garden of the Green Room will be in front of the stage. This can be clearly seen in a 3D animation that was released a few days ago.

The mind behind the design of this year’s stage is Francesca Montinaro, who has also created the stages of the Sanremo Music Festival twice (2013 and 2019). Montinaro explained the inspiration behind the design of the green room:

We’re part of nature and nature is a part of us.
We never forget it when we design.

The Green Room will be located right in front of the stage, as happened in last year’s competition, and is inspired by the Baroque garden feel, such as those at Villa d’Este, Castel Gandolfo, Villa Lante or other estates throughout Italy. The water around the stage that will be located between the Green Room and the main stage will remind people of fountains in a park.

Multimedia artist and stage designer Francesca Montinaro is the creative talent behind the design, which will present each of our 40 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!
