The musical journey undertaken two years ago by Amadeus  marked an important cultural change in the history of the Sanremo Song Festival which led the Maneskin, winners of the last edition, to also win the Eurovision Song Contest, an important international recognition for the Italian song. It is in this direction of innovation, one of the objectives of the Public Service, that Rai intends to continue to increasingly enhance musical talent through the most popular television event in the country.
