Fans of the better Italian song can pick their hearts over the next five nights. The RAI transmits between tonight and Saturday night the 67th Edition of the Sanremomusic festival.

The final winner will be asked to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of Italy. The winner may refuse that, in that case, the runner-up requested. That happened last year: a Eurovision participation did not fit into the agenda of the winning group Stadio, and thereupon, swallowed runner-up Francesca Michielin. They eventually became 16th in Stockholm with No Degree of Separation.

No daily updates Carlo Conti and Maria De Filippi talk the five nights at length to each other. will not report daily of Sanremo, but updates the list of participants of the finals Saturday night. The full list will only during the broadcast itself getting around, but what we know, we place in our general article of all preliminary rounds, that Friday morning will appear.
