ITALY – Matteo Gaudimundo, venue manager, revealed in LA STAMPA that there is no worry for Eurovision dates although trapper Sfera Ebbasta announced a concert in Turin on 26/4 when the venue will be on preparations for the contest.
He also explained that the PRESS CENTER will be around the venue and not in Palavela as mistakenly speculated by the press.
There will be an outdoor nearby structure with independent restaurants and facilities. It was also mentioned that 750 media representatives are likely to be accredited.
Regarding the EURO VILLAGE the PalaOlimpico manager said that he and his team are working on an ad hoc facility for it, but will not replace the actual euro village which will be situated in Piazza San Carlo where all delegations, fans and media representatives will enjoy the heartbeat of the city.
The challenge of revamping Piazza d’Armi with temporary pavilions is another challenge for the host city.
Aside from what has been published in the interview, it has become known from other sources that EBU will use the LIVE-ON-TAPE security for all participating nations to avoid any risks of not attending the event in a potential pandemic crisis that might occur in April.
