Festival Della Canzone Italiana di Sanremo
If you are a fan of Italian music and Italian artists, like I am, then you’ve probably heard of a little thing called the Sanremo Music Festival or Festival Della Canzone Italiana. The festival, which has been running since 1951, has featured some of Italy’s most talented artists. It has also been the stepping stone for many new artists, catapulting them into the spotlight. Artists such as Tiziano Ferro, Fabrizio Moro, Laura Pausini, Giorgia, and many others found their “big break” at this event.
The 60th edition of the Sanremo Music Festival will run from February 16-20th and feature 15 Italian artists competing for top prize and 10 newcomers in competition for in New Generation or Nuova Generazione category.
