TURIN, ITALY – The Grand Final of the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest in Turin will have the honour of a very special guest on Saturday 14 May.
Italy’s first-ever winner of the Contest, Gigliola Cinquetti, will be performing for attendees at the PalaOlimpico and viewers at home.
It’s approaching a whopping 60 years since Gigliola won the Eurovision Song Contest with her song Non Ho L’età (Per Amarti).
Since that victory in 1964, the song has made it back to the Eurovision stage a second time – in 1991, when the Contest was hosted in Rome. Gigliola co-presented Eurovision that year, also performing the classic song as an interval act during the show.
Now, the beloved artist from Verona will bring the song back to its Eurovision roots once more and will sing Non Ho L’età (Per Amarti) on stage at the PalaOlimpico during the Grand Final of the 2022 Contest in Turin.
Gigliola’s rendition of the hit will form part of a line-up of interval performances throughout the three shows on 10, 12 and 14 May, showcasing some timeless moments contributed by Italy to the Eurovision Song Contest over the years. Previously announced acts include Il Volo and Diodato.
