Fiorello and Amadeus

Fiorello and Amadeus

Other than controversy: the real “bogeyman” of Amadeus is now Auditel, which will decree the success of the Sanremo festival 2020. The legacy is heavy because the Romagna driver comes after two very successful managements: that of Claudio Baglioni, ‘patron’ of the latest editions, and that of Carlo Conti, at the helm from 2015 to 2017. The wait for this 70 ° Festival will it benefit on the front listen? Waiting for the response, here all the numbers of the first evenings.
