On Domenica In Amadeus spoke with Mara Venier about the next Sanremo Festival which will begin on Tuesday 6 February. The host and artistic director is preparing for his fifth Festival and commented a little on what happened in previous years, from the winners, to the changes, through Fiorello and Covid. Precisely on the subject of Covid, Amadeus recalled the victory of Maneskin with Zitti e Buoni who performed in an empty Ariston: “Reviewing the images of the pandemic has a certain effect, I will not stop thanking every person who went on stage at that festival and the singers , obviously. In 2021 it was the year of Maneskin, who won with Zitti e Buoni and then toured the world playing that song without anyone in the theater, a particular image.”

The success of the four Sanremos

The host spoke about his success : “I didn't expect this success, I approached the first festival with carefreeness and also with the awareness that there wouldn't be a second one. When they called me for the second one I thought that they hadn't found anything better and perhaps it was this attitude that allowed me to do a 2020 festival in total freedom, carefree, starting to change it. I said: if I have to do one I'll do it as I like, then I did four, and I managed to bring it among young people. Doing things with the enthusiasm of a child helps me make the Festival the way I want.”

His wife Giovanna and son Josè

Amadeus spoke of the help of his wife Giovanna and son José: “Giovanna is a fundamental advisor for me, the person who shares everything with me: ideas, thoughts. She is the first to know them, she expresses doubts to me or makes suggestions. My daughter Alice is great, she is 26 years old and has broad taste, while José loves rap, trap, he introduces me to very strong singers, I have listened to many of them carefully and I am in Sanremo because I met them thanks to him”. With him, in all these years there has also been another important person, namely Fiorello: “We have known each other with him for 37 years: we met on Radio Deejay, it was 85/86, I came from Verona, from the radio locals and he from the villages, we met and although we have different characters, a true friendship was born, we did many things together. They are not my festivals but ours, without Fiorello I wouldn't have been able to do them.”

Future dreams

Finally, to Mara Venier's question about the realization of dreams and future ones, Amadeus replied: “I dreamed of what I did, but I didn't think of realizing it. Then I'm not someone who tends to relax, I need adrenaline, I always have ideas, I would always like to do things, for me that is important, I always have to think of something new, more than a future desire, therefore, I have the hope of being able to do fun things that the public will like”.
