Italy: RAI announces Amadeus as Sanremo 2022 host & artistic director with the dates

Italy’s national broadcaster, RAI, has announced that Amadeus will be the host and artistic director of the Sanremo Festival 2022, which runs from February 1 to 5, 2022.

The Italian song festival that will take place from February 1 to February 5, 2022 will be presented for the third consecutive year by Amadeus who will be the artistic director of the event.

In previous editions, the Sicilian conductor was accompanied on stage by showman Rosario Fiorello, but it is too early to assume Fiorello’s presence this year as well.

As for the next version, the conductor announced that he does not yet know if it will be a Sanremo the same as the previous versions or if there will be changes.
