The first evening of Sanremo festival as always it is one of the most awaited moments of the Italian television schedule, an event that every year loads the public with expectations. This year the singing festival conducted by Amadeus, was surrounded by controversy even before it could start, which may have generated a lot of curiosity among the spectators or, instead, may have been used as a deterrent for not attending this 70th edition. Undoubtedly, the artistic director did not skimp on any surprises, the first evening, in fact, saw guests on the Ariston stage as the cast of the film “The most beautiful years” by Gabriele Muccino, the historic artistic couple of Al Bano is Romina, Diletta Leotta is Rula Jebreal who accompanied Amadeus on this early evening giving moments of reflection with their respective monologues dedicated to women. The presence then of Fiorello is Tiziano Ferro it was equally decisive for the evening she conquered 12,841,000 spectators with a share of 52.2%.
Fiorello’s hilarious and eloquent comment, one of the great guests on the Ariston stage, strongly desired by Amedeus who published the result of the first evening on Twitter, adding a rather colorful exclamation.
The 2005 Festival surpasses that of Amadeus
Last year the first evening of the Festival, conducted by Virginia Raffale and Claudio Bisio instead it gathered 10 million spectators, the previous year, with the conducting of Pierfrancesco Favino and Michelle Hunziker more than 11 million viewers were reached, who had a share of 49.5% and 52.2% respectively. To arrive at a result similar to that achieved by Amedeus, it will be necessary to arrive at 2005, the Festival conducted by Antonella Clerici, Paolo Bonolis and Federica Fellini which recorded 54.78% of the share, conquering just over 12 million viewers.
