ITALY – The conductor of the Festival, Amadeus, despite the controversy, discussed what will happen on the Ariston stage.
“People at home will see a show similar to that of the other years but behind the scenes, it will be organized with surgical methods. Sanremo has always been a crowd, but this year it won’t be possible”.
Sanremo, despite the controversial chorus that has led entire sectors to complain of unequal treatment, it will be done. This was confirmed once again by Amadeus, interviewed by the press.
“People on the street ask me: ‘Can we make it Sanremo’? Not: “Will you make Sanremo”? The public needs the festival, to lighten up, to think about something else. With all possible protocols,” said the conductor and artistic director of the event, explaining how “Sanremo Festival has always been a crowd, but this year it won’t be possible. People at home will see a show that will seem the most similar to that of other years but behind the scenes, it will be organized with surgical methods”.
“That Sanremo has 380 people in the audience is a huge effort. Sanremo is not to be hit. If there are no people in the audience I am not doing the show a favour but damage. The festival will be a great beacon that will illuminate a sector and cause suffering to struggle among us”, continued Amadeus, saying he was sorry for the anger of creatives and those belonging to the entertainment world.
“If you wait for Sanremo to strike then it means that at that moment everyone is hurting: cinema, theatre, music”, the conductor tried to hazard, to then announce the first, great international guest.
«The woman who will open the Sanremo festival will be Naomi Campbell. This summer I saw a TV report on her and what she represents beyond fashion. She will certainly be the co-host of the first night because I love the story of their experiences. In total, you will see ten women by my side: some for one evening, others for the whole week and they will represent themselves as they like. Naomi will be able to tell what the public doesn’t know and belongs to her. About her friendship with Nelson Mandela, her civil rights battles against racism. You will see, she will be magnificent,” he swore, finally recounting the serenity of her inherent in her friendship with Fiorello, once again chosen as her shoulder.
“We are happy we are putting into practice dozens and dozens of ideas because they will be surprised and I want them to remain secret”.
