A lot of information on next week's Sanremo festival was revealed today. In the city of flowers the rehearsals are on going, the press has heard the songs and excitement is rising. As we know, this year Sanremo has nothing to do with Eurovision, or at least selecting the song and/or artist for Copenhagen 2014 as Emma Marrone is already internally selected by RAI with La mia città.
But let's start wit the stage designed by Emanuela Trixie Zitkowsky. It's only the second time in the 64 years of the frestival a woman has got this prestigious job. It's inspired of the beauty of Italian 18th century palace. "The dramatic theme", she tells, "interprets the beauty of a hypothetical Italian palace, a salon that has lived its past glory, but time and neglect have been its worst enemies.". There are frescoes, big staircases, black and white chess floors.... This blogger thinks it's going to be beautiful! There was something similar in the early-mid 1990's that I really liked....
Sanremo will also celebrate the 60 years of Italian TV with some "old" names from Raffaella Carrá to Gino Paoli, Claudio Baglioni and Franca Valeri. The foreign guests include Rufus Wainwright, Cat Stevens, Damien Rice and Stromae.
