Italy: First ‘Polemiche’ of Sanremo 2012

It has only been a couple of days since the announcement of the artist in the major festival category at the popular Italian competition; Sanremo and some problems have already arose it seems. D’Alessio & Berte` duo are Chiara Civello on the risk list of elemenation after their songs were already online or already published in public. Clear Civello is supposed to sing the ‘Al posto del mondo’.

Daniele Magro (former X Factor 2) proposed at the Sanremo 2010 selections a song with the same title, ‘Al posto del mondo’. The authors of the song of Daniele Magro were Diana Tejera (Co-author of Tiziano Ferro, who also collaborates with the Civello) and Chiara Civello herself. I sincerely doubt, that the same song which was ‘dumped’ two years ago from the festival could have made a return and could simply be just the case of a song with the same title. On the other hand, Gigi d’Alessio and Loredana Berte’s song was already on Youtube on the 13th January.

D’Alessio is defending the song by simply saying that, since the songs of the festival were not yet chosen, their song could be easily put online as their new single. But again, many are saying that this is just an excuse not to be eliminated in such from such a prestigious contest, although this was stipulated in the contest’s regulations, that the songs had to be held ‘secret’ until the first night. The decision is yet to be taken but stay tuned to ESCflashmalta as we delve into this matter in the coming weeks.
