Artist director of Sanremo Music Festival AMADEUS shares his excitement:
”I can’t wait to listen to the songs of all the members of the Sanremo Area, I am sure that we will find good music and artists capable of astonishing us. It is on young people that I have always focused, beyond categories and genres. Both among the Big and in the New Proposals section and now also with the Sanremo Area. As President, with the support of my trusted collaborators, I will try to make the recording style more homogeneous. A global work: two groups but one way. I thank all the professionals who have so far alternated on the jury for the excellent work they have done”
