It seems Laura Pausini has had to say "No" to Sanremo hosting again just like the past two years. That woman is just too busy touring the world! As soon as the news broke and her "certaintity" is gone in the rumour mill Italian press has gone wild reporting other ideas Carlo Conti may or may not have in mind. The most interesting and surprising one is that of Barbara D'Urso, leading lady in the competing Mediaset channels. That would be a wise move (and it wouldn't be the first time this tactic has been used) attracting her fans to Raiuno as well. This blogger approves, she's funny and professional.
The other names include Miriam Leone, a web celebrity and a celebrity girlfriend (Fedez's). Chiara Ferragni, an actress both on silverscreen and television and another actress Sveva Alviti. She played Dalida in the movie about her life so maybe there would a Dalida tribute in Teatro Ariston as well?
