Fiorello co-hosts with Amadeus, but it will be the last Sanremo
On the sidelines of the press conference, a journalist asked Fiorello: “But if Amadeus were to decide to continue, would you be there as a partner?” . The showman had no doubts: ” No, no, no, no, no, I'm done here. Sanremo ends here for me . Enough. It's over .” Then, he explained better the reason for his decision. He believes one should not impose one's presence on the public for so long:
Five years is a long time. The public likes to watch Sanremo and would like to see others in Sanremo too. So we can't even impose our permanent presence. They've always asked us, for goodness sake, we haven't imposed anything, but now Ama knows, enough is enough, enough is enough. We have done a lot.
The farmers' protest, Fiorello's comment
Fiorello was then asked to comment on the farmers' protest and whether it is right to host them at the Sanremo Festival. The 63-year-old said:
Annalisa's tattoos and their meaning
I believe that it is right to host two representatives of the category on the Sanremo stage – perhaps not with tractors because they don't even enter Sanremo – I believe that Amadeus would gladly welcome them because the problem is important and also serious, we need to intervene. So having two representatives of the category yes, let's hope so.
In these hours, however, Rai announced in a note: ” With regard to what has been reported by some press outlets, there is no ongoing contact between the organization of the Festival and one of the farmers' associations “.
