Raphael Gualazzi

Raphael Gualazzi represented Italy in the 2011 edition of the contest. It was the first entry of Italy in almost 15 years. The song “Madness Of Love” managed to finish in second place, losing by Azerbaijan.

Francesco Gabbani

Francesco was the ultimate fan-favourite song of the 2017 edition of the contest since its victory in the Sanremo Festival. However, in the final of Eurovision “Occidentali’s Karma” – the name of the entry – not only didn’t win but also didn’t place in the Top-5, finishing 6th!
