The attention towards the Festival in Europe after Måneskin’s victory has never been higher. In addition to the Montenegrin and Albanian TVs that broadcast the final every year, this year Spanish TV has also been added.
In addition to the live broadcasts, there was also a boom for all the Sanremo content on RaiPlay, in particular the performances by Måneskin and the gags by Checco Zalone.

Carlo Fuortes, CEO of Rai
“Sanremo has become trendy, viral and I think we have managed to reach a point from which to start. Rai receives the license fee from all citizens and must speak to all citizens. The result achieved has a great strategic value. Yesterday the highest volume of downloads from digital platforms was reached and Sanremo contributed: it was not taken for granted and Amadeus created the conduction for this to happen. The trajectory is therefore very clear for the future of our company too, which with this edition fully enters the TV of the future.”
