Eurovision 2022: RAI reveals the impressive stage design
The host of Eurovision 2022, RAI, revealed the impressive stage of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest that will take place in Turin.
If there is one phrase that can describe the whole idea of the scene, it is The Sun Within! The stage through which RAI aspires to offer an impressive Eurovision show is modern and inspired by the sun, in combination with the Italian garden and the water element.
Behind the design of the stage is Francesca Montinaro, who is widely known to the public having designed the stages of the most important Italian TV shows such as the stage of the San Remo Festival 2013 and 2019.
Francesca succeeds Florian Wieder, who was responsible for the stage designs of all editions of the Eurovision Song Contest from 2017 to 2021.
For the concept, the designer was partly inspired by the Italian character:
“The kinetic sun, source of spectacular movements and tricks of light, rules the stage and represents our Italian attitude: always on the move, rebellious, creative, welcoming, passionate, intuitive. We are the ones with the sun within, and this is our way to be in this world.’
Taking into account the hospitality of the Italian people and the objective of welcoming the delegations across the continent she say:
The cascade of water that frames the stage, allegorically represents the sea that surrounds us, a symbol of our complex culture. The stage is our peninsula: a country where each contestant is welcomed, no matter where they are coming from.’
And she concludes by saying about the scenery she is setting up for the delegations:
‘The artists and their teams will be hosted in a lush Italian garden, where vegetation mingles with rays of light, suspended between reality and illusion, transporting them to a playful and architectural dimension.’
The 66th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest is set to take place on May 10,12 and 14 at the Pala Olympico in Turin, Italy.
