ITALY: FIORELLA MANNOIA AND MARCO MASINI JOURNALISTS FAVORITES IN SANREMO

As usual the carefully selected media and journalists have had a chance to listen the songs in Sanremo festival in advance to be able to write at least something about them before the festival starts. The songs will be heard by common people only when performed for the first time on stage in Teatro Ariston, from February 7. 
Our friends in eurofestivalnews have been busy checking out all the papers and what they have written counting the positive and negative comments, the no comments and the neutral comments. If we just put those comments in a chart like a medal table it looks like this (positive-negative-neutral):

FIORELLA MANNOIA 22-0-0
MARCO MASINI 21-1-0
ERMAL META 19-1-0
PAOLA TURCI 18-3-1
SAMUEL 17-3-2
FRANCESCO GABBANI 17-5-0
FABRIZIO MORO 15-0-10
GIUSY FERRERI 15-2-5
RON 13-2-6
CLEMENTINO 13-4-5
CHIARA 13-5-3
RAIGE & GIULIA LUZZI 11-5-6
ALBANO 9-8-5
SERGIO SYLVESTRE 8-8-6
ELODIE 8-12-2
MICHELE BRAVI 7-9-6
NESLI & ALICE BABA 4-6-11
ZARRILLO 4-7-11
GIGI D'ALESSIO 4-10-8
LODOVICA COMELLO 4-16-1
BIANCA ATZEI 2-12-8
ALESSIO BERNABEI 2-15-5

Fiorella Mannoia is the clear favorite. There's no doubt she's a great interpreter and the song seems to be a good one, too. Marco Masini is her biggest rival. It seems he's got a bit of a new style and it's a success. Last year's newcomers Francesco Gabbani and Ermal Meta are making it strong, too and after years and years not even getting to Sanremo Paola Turci seems to be aiming for a major revenge and also Giusy Ferreri ropably finally gets it right with Sanremo? 
Lodovica Comello, Bianca Atzei and Alessio Bernabei don't get any love from the journalists and experts but that doesn't mean they won't be voted my televoters.... 
The top doesn't look very Eurovision friendly at first glance but then you never know. La Mannoia should she win propably says "No" but Masini - a veteren from 1987 team - could go for it. The others, who knows? Giusy Ferreri and Franceso Gabbani would be great though, Samuel maybe, too, and why not Turci? Apparently her song is a catchy uptempo and she has delivered some great tracks in the past......
