Returning country Italy will be represented by one of the artists performing at the San Remo festival, the mother of the Eurovision Song Contest. RAI has officially stated this on February 1st.

But if you thought that the winner will represent Italy, you're wrong. The judges will have to decide which participant is best suited to represent Italy in Düsseldorf. There has been no further explanation yet, but everything will be explained into detail at the start of the festival to the audience and the jury. This is due to the secrecy that the songs are heard for the first time on the 1st day of the festival. A complete list with participants can be viewed here and among others are some previous Eurovision participants:

  • Patty Pravo
  • Moda'
  • Luca Madonia & Franco Battiato (ESC 1984)
  • Giusy Ferreri
  • La Crus
  • Anna Oxa (ESC 1989)
  • Tricarico
  • Nathalie
  • Al Bano (ESC 1976 & 1985)
  • Luca Barbarossa (ESC 1988) & Raquel del Rosario
  • Roberto Vecchioni
  • Max Pezzali
  • Davide Van De Sfroos

The Festival of San Remo takes place between February 15th & February 19th and will be broadcast on RAI UNO & RAI International. Italy last participated in 1997 with the winners of Sanremo, Jalisse and their song "Fiumi Di Parole" which ended up 4th.
