SAN MARINO – It’s official, SMRTV under the new director-general is heading to a national final for Eurovision 2022, the first since the failed production of 2018. The festival, UNA VOCE PER SAN MARINO will have 16 participants. 8 established and 8 newcomers. Established artists will be invited by MEDIA REVOLUTION SRL and there is no limitation on nationality.
The submissions window opens on Wednesday and is due on January 10. Applications will be reviewed by an expert “Academy” which will make a casting of the participants on 13-15/12 and 5-11/1. The festival will have semi-finals and a final hosted at TITANO THEATER in San Marino city. Only the final will be live televised from TEATRO NUOVO DOGANA.
The winner will be decided by a jury…
Who will be the invited artists at Una Voce per San Marino? With the announcement of the National Selection for Eurovision 2022, we have to wait for the names of both established singers and newcomers. However, we are very confident we might see several names from the list underneath:
Eliza G: winner of the Golden Stag 2019 (and participant at Kenga Magjike 2021)
Inis Neziri: winner of Golden Stag 2018 and winner of New Wave 2019

Official announcements of the participants of the National Final of San Marino in February will be known only somewhere in January 2022 but we urge you to keep this article so as we are more than convinced that several of these names (if not the majority) will be present!
Time will tell if we are right again…
