The musical festival
Laura Pausini, Alessandro Cattelan and Mika will be the hosts of Eurovision 2022. Italy has decided to focus on the concept “The sound of beauty – The Sound of Beauty”. The 66th edition will be held at the ParaOlimpico in Turin from 10 to 14 May 2022. It will be the third time in which Italy will host the music competition, after the 1965 and 1991 editions. Our country boasts three victories at the Eurovision Song Contest: the first, in 1964, (Gigliola Cinquetti); the second victory in 1990 with Toto Cutugno and in 2021 with the Maneskin. The Roman band scored a total of 524 points in Rotterdam (which is the highest score ever obtained by Italy in the history of Eurovision) and this victory, in addition to that of the 71st edition of the Sanremo Festival, determined the extraordinary success of the group all over the world.
