Remember that there are two categories at Sanremo, Campioni and Nuove Proposte (New Singers). Once again, the artist who wins the Campioni category of Sanremo 2017 will get the right to represent Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest. Last year Stadio won this festival category, but their choice was not to present their song to the wider European audience in Stockholm due to touring commitments. Instead, the runner-up Francesca Michielin was chosen to perform at Eurovision, finishing 16th in the grand final with her song “No Degree Of Separation”.

Sanremo 2017 will take place from February 7th to 11th. The shows will be hosted once again by Carlo Conti, who, along with several professionals, was responsible for selecting the candidates that will compete in the Italian festival.

Dates for Sanremo 2017:

  • Serata 1: February 7th
  • Serata 2: February 8th
  • Serata 3: February 9th
  • Serata 4: February 10th
  • Serata 5: FINALE – February 11th
