The winner of Sanremo have the option to represent Italy at Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv. If the winner declines to go to Kyiv then RAI will internally select another participant. This was the case last year, when Stadio won Sanremo 2016 with 43% of the votes in the Final. They couldn’t compete in Eurovision 2016, so the runner-up Francesca Michielin was offered the ticket to Stockholm with her Sanremo entry “No degree of separation”, finishing 16th at Eurovision 2016.
