The 73rd Festival di Sanremo has come to an end, and Marco Mengoni has officially been declared the winner with his song “Due Vite”

The evening shone with stars: Amadeus, along with Gianni Morandi and Chiara Ferragni, were tonight’s presenters. There were also a lot of guest appearances, including performance by Depeche Mode and a message from Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The five-hour show saw all 28 artists again. During the first phase of the final they sang all 28 songs again for the third time and, after a 100% televoting which was added to the rankings of the previous nights, the first 5 songs qualified to the super final, in which voting restarted from zero, not taking into consideration any of the previous voting procedures of the whole week. In the super final, everyone had a say: televoting by 34%demoscopic jury by 33% and jury of journalists also by 33%.

With this, a new ranking for the final five was formed, where Marco Mengoni secured the win with his song “Due vite.” This doesn’t come as a surprise as Marco Mengoni won all three previous nights and was the front runner in odds.
