The Sanremo Song Festival has captured the hearts of all Italians, both in Italy and abroad. A catalyst for the Eurovision Song Contest, Sanremo has been a must watch spectacular on the international music calendar for all Italians, and Italians at heart, since 1951.
The festival is responsible for launching the careers of some of Italy’s greatest singers, some of whom went on to become international stars in their own right.
Sanremo has introduced songs that have become anthems to Italians living abroad, touching their souls in times of celebration and need. Who can forget “Volare”, “L’Italiano”, “Che Sara”, and “Rose Rosse”.
Ricordi di Sanremo (Memories of Sanremo) will bring back all those memories in a multimedia production led by Italy’s own Pupo.
A Sanremo winner himself, he will introduce Australia's crème de la crème of Italo-Australian singers, which include: Tony Pantano, Giancarlo Nobili, Fiorentino Mannino, Penny Pavlakis, Gaetano Bonfante, Grace Rizzo, and Tony and Sara Mazell.
Joining this extensive list of performers will be special guest Fiordaliso, who has participated in Sanremo nine times with hits such as “Non Voglio Mica La Luna”, and “Oramai”.
