ITALY – The stage design was revealed and the fans already started to comment and review the sketches. Although we have not (yet) an animate version of the stage, the fans are divided in the social media. Too many layers? Some argue against them and some love them. They also spot the similarities (intense ones) with the Eurovision 1979 and 2017 (mostly) stages.

The 2022 Eurovision stage was created by Atelier Francesca Montinaro, a Rome-based design firm with extensive expertise in stage design, having designed the 2013 and 2019 Sanremo Song Festival stages.
Francesca Montinaro and her team created the Eurovision 2022 stage; this is the first time in 5 years that we will have a new stage designer since Florian Wieder has been the Eurovision stage designer since 2017, designing all stages since then (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020/ 2021).
Eurovision 2022 stage design looking really impressive I am very confident Italy will put on a fantastic show

Those bows are annoying and oldfashioned. Take them off and the stage will look much better

the worst years at the stage level in my opinion were the last 2, as the headquarters was smaller and very small

It reminds me of 1979…
…which ain't a bad thing as I really like that year's stage as well #Eurovision

But there are of course positive and enthusiastic comments for the stage, referring mostly to the magnificent size of the structure and the plural complexity (regarding the elements). Fans also spotted and were happy that this is the first stage not designed by Florian Weider (in recent years).
Finally a stage NOT made by Florian Wieder!
