FLASH: Carlo Conti, the Sanremo Festival 2025 (and 2023) is his

It was made official this morning in the news headlines. Carlo Conti will be the artistic director and host of the Sanremo Festival 2025 and 2026.

This is the official note from RAI:

“As announced on Tg1, Carlo Conti will be the new artistic director and host of the Sanremo Italian Song Festival. A unanimous decision by the top management, the CEO Roberto Sergio and the General Manager Giampaolo Rossi in concert with the Prime Time Entertainment Director Marcello Ciannamea. For the next two years Conti will be at the helm of the most important national multimedia event organized by Rai and the Municipality of Sanremo.

For the host it is not a simple return to the Festival but a new challenge which, as its objective, is to continue to promote and enhance new trends, as he did in the three successful editions, from 2014 to 2016, which saw launch artists who are now protagonists of Italian music. The Artistic Director is already working on a Festival with many surprises and innovations.”
