RAI has announced today along with the rules of the 2015 Sanremo festival that its winner will be the first choice to represent Italy in the Eurovision song contest 2015 in Vienna. And that seems to go only for the artists, not necessarily for the song. If the winner is not interested, the organizing committee will pick up another artist from the festival.
In 2012 Emma Marrone won the festival but apparently said a polite "No thank you" to Eurovision and Nina Zilli was selected instead and chose another song. In 2013 Marco Mengoni won and brought his winning entry to Malmö so this method has been in the use unofficially it seems already. Maybe. 
Sanremo 2015 will be a five day affair starting February 10 with the grand final on Valentine's Day February when the Italian entrant will be then known.
In the rules we can see the submission perios starts September 30, 2014 and the host and artistic director Carlo Conti has the last word on each and every one of them. The announcement of the artists will take place on December 9 for the Newcomers and December 14 for the Big.
