(Italy 1969).
Another previous Eurovision competitor, Marco Mengoni (Italy 2013), played his Eurovision entry L’essenziale as well as his most recent tune Mi fider.
During the final, a special tribute was paid to the late Raffaella Carrà, who died last year at the age of 78. She was honored with a medley of her most iconic songs, which was also shown on stage through a well-produced hologram. Many people thought Raffaella Carrà to be a possible Eurovision 2022 host. She last featured in Eurovision in 2011, when she announced Italy’s points in the Eurovision Song Contest in Düsseldorf. According to media accounts, she was instrumental in reintroducing Italy to the competition after a more than a decade hiatus.
