Sanremo's Newcomers category, whatever it has been called over the years, was the talent show long before anyone even dreamed of various Idols, X Factors and Voices. Truth to be said, it may have lost a bit over the past few years when names like Eros Ramazzotti, Giorgia, Laura Pausini and Andrea Bocelli have not emerged from it and today's Marco Mengonis come from other formats. This year Sanremo has promised to bring the new talents in to the spotlight and prime time unlike the previous years when they have usually perfomed and been voted around 1am....
But through the hard times the category has served a passage to the main category and this year is not an exception. Eight of the 20 artists have started their career in Sanremo Newcomers, three of them winning it. All of them have returned to Sanremo multiple times since their debut, and Masini has also won the Big category in 2004 with Uomo volante. Here's the list:

Marco Masini - Disperato - winner 1990
Nek - In te - 3rd in 1993
Irene Grandi - Fuori - 4th in 1994
Gianluca Grignani - Destinazione paradiso - 6th in 1995
Alex Britti - Oggi sono io - winner 1999
Anna Tatangelo - Doppiamente fragili - winner 2002
Malika Ayane - Come foglie - finalist in 2009 (only the winner was announced, Arisa)
Nina Zilli - L'uomo che amava le donne - 3rd in 2010
