What is the Sanremo Festival?
A music festival that has been held every year in Italy, in Sanremo in Liguria, since 1951. Many of the most famous names in Italian music have taken part as competitors, guests or composers. It is one of the most important and longest-running music festivals in the world (even more than Eurovision).

Often for the singers who participate it is the beginning of true fame and the songs become part of the story. The festival has led to the success of epochal songs such as the winning piece of 1958 "Nel blu dipinto di blu" by Domenico Modugno, "L'italiano" by Toto Cutugno, "Felicità" by Al Bano and Romina and "La solitudine" by Laura Pausini.

Special guests of the first evening were Måneskin: after having won in Sanremo last year and the world success of the last year with the victory at Eurovision and the performances in Las Vegas (The Italian success of Måneskin arrives in Las Vegas!), they sang their hits: "Zitti e buoni" and "Coraline".
