Euroviisut in Italian: Third time lucky?

As we know Finns are rather peculiar at times. When the other countries feature songs in Spanish or Spanglish in their national selections mostly when another language besides English is used - and Norway even sent one to ESC - Finns go Italian. Again. After Taina Kokkonen's rather challenging Silenzio what comes to fitting the lyrics and actually sing them (11th out 12 in 2002) Tomi Metsäketo fought it til the end with Lordi in 2006 bringing Eternamente Maria to second place. And this year another tenor Pentti Hietanen will have a go with Italian in Euroviisut. Third time lucky? Will Finland bring Italian back to contest in Oslo?
