How Sanremo Giovani finalists will be selected

A total of 12 artists will take the stage at the Teatro del Casinò di Sanremo in December for the Sanremo Giovani 2021 final.

Initially, the artistic director listens to all the pieces in order to check if they meet the conditions for participation. The music committee will then select the 30 artists who will appear in the live auditions in Room A on via Asiago. The 30 artists (plus the winners of the Sanremo Area) will have to send to the committee a different piece than the one used for Sanremo Giovani, which, in case of victory, they will present in February at the 72nd San Remo Festival.

In this phase, 8 of the 12 finalists of Sanremo Giovani will be selected. The other four artists who will complete the final line up in December will be selected, again by the Music Committee, through the local Sanremo Area competition.
