The Friday night in Sanremo festival is dedicated to duets again after a few years pause (in recent years the artists have covered Italian classics) and the list of Big artists duet partners is out. Alice is back to Sanremo for the 4th time (1972 Il mio cuore se ne va, 1981 Per Elisa - winner, 2000 Il giorno dell'indipendenza) and duets with Ron, with a song co-written by late lagend Lucio Dalla, Almeno pensami, and described by the media who has already heard the songs as one of the front runners for the victory.
