Tonight, the 70th edition of Sanremo or “Festival Della Canzone Italiana” begins! Like last year, the winner of the festival will gain the right to represent Italy to the upcoming Eurovision event.
The show consists of 5 shows – 5 nights – and will be from tonight until Saturday! Amadeus will be this year’s host and he is also the artistic director of the festival. The voting varies from night to night. On the night of the final, 34% will determinate by the Public televoting, 33% by the Jury of the Press Room, TV, Radio and Web and 33% by the Demoscopic Jury – fans that vote through an electronic voting system from their home.
