ITALY – In an interview during the broadcast “Italian Stories”, conducted by Eleonora Daniele, Iva Zanicchi spoke about the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. In particular, the singer expressed herself in the performance of Gigliola Cinquetti. These are her words:
“I would have exalted Gigliola Cinquetti a little more. I would have made her do a duet with herself. I was going to do a duet with her images of her in Copenhagen 1964.”
“I had to go with ‘Gypsy’, which was successful, but the selfish record companies sent me with a new song. They made a mistake and I finished the thirteenth. They proposed the song ‘Two big white tears’. It wasn’t bad, I believed it, I sang it with enthusiasm.”
Iva Zanicchi could not fail to mention the Sanremo Festival after having participated in it several times, the last time this year with the song “I want to love you”.
Besides her, the singer revealed what it feels like to win the festival, she revealed the contemporary artist that she loves most and with whom she hopes to collaborate soon.
The artist in question is Diodato (Italy 2020) who we recently saw in the first semifinal in Turin in an interval act dedicated to him. These are the words of Ligonchio’s eagle on Sanremo and Diodato:
“Sanremo is an immense joy: winning it is a tremendous exaltation. My favourite singer today is Diodato, I love him: he writes in a wonderful way, but he never phoned me and I hope he writes a song for me.”
