Here is still Dec 18, but the news on Italy are already online. News for Dec 19! Antonio Minutiello on Retro Magazine – Festival di Sanremo 2015: i cantanti in gara – makes critics to the Sanremo Festival, considering its evolution in the last few years. From a “theatrical” festival to a TV festival that highlights the singers fresh out of the talent shows. More emphasis on the competition: televoting, great movement among fans, than on the songs. One option for hip artists at the expense of the big names that made the history of Sanremo. We think that this criticism is right about the competitive and media aspects but, on the other hand, to keep the format without considering the social and cultural changes would make the festival stop on the time.
