Sanremo Music Festival chronology
2010

The Sanremo Music Festival 2010 was the 60th annual Sanremo Music Festival, held at the Teatro Ariston in Sanremo, province of Imperia, during the five nights between 16 February 2010 and 20 February 2010. The show was broadcast by Rai 1 and presented by Antonella Clerici. Its artistic director was Gianmarco Mazzi.

As in most of the previous years, the competition was divided in two sections. The "Big Artists Section", including 15 established Italian artists, was won by Valerio Scanu with the song "Per tutte le volte che...", while the "Newcomers Section" was won by Tony Maiello, performing "Il linguaggio della resa".

For the first time, the rules of the festival were modified so that songs with lyrics in an Italian dialect[1] or written by non-Italian writers were allowed to compete in the festival.[2] Moreover, the songs performed by the artists competing in the newcomers' section were allowed to be released before the festival's first night.[1]

Presenters and personnel[edit]

Antonella Clerici, presenter of the show.

On 2 September 2009, Antonella Clerici was officially announced as the presenter of the Sanremo Music Festival 2010, while Gianmarco Mazzi was confirmed as the artistic and musical director of the show.[3][4] Rumours about Clerici's involvement in the show started in June 2009.[5] It was the second Sanremo Music Festival presented by Antonella Clerici, after 2005's edition, presented alongside Paolo Bonolis.[1]

The authors of the show were Ivano Balduini, Matteo Catalano, Massimo Cotto, Simona Ercolani, Cesare Lanza, Andrea Lo Vecchio, Luca Parenti and Francesco Valitutti.[6] The Sanremo Festival Orchestra was conducted by Marco Sabiu,[7] while Daniel Ezralow was for the first time the choreographer of the show.[8]

For the seventeenth time, the scenography was created by Gaetano Castelli.[9][10]

Selections[edit]

Newcomers section[edit]

SanremoLab[edit]

The artists competing in the newcomers section were chosen through the contests SanremoLab and Sanremo New Generation. The selection for the contest SanremoLab, organized by the Comune di Sanremo, took place between October and December 2009.[11] 312 artists participated in the selections,[12] and the 8 finalists of the contest—Divario, Davide Fasulo, Giops, Maya, Erika Mineo, Jacopo Ratini, Romeus and Donato Santoianni—were chosen on 12 December 2009[13] by a jury presided by music journalist Paolo Giordano and including Francesco Mandelli, Bruno Santori, Nicoletta Deponti, Luigi Grasso, Federica Gentile and Elena Di Cioccio.[14] A few hours later, Jacopo Ratini and Romeus, performing "Su questa panchina" and "Come l'autunno" respectively, were chosen by the SanremoAcademy jury and announced as the two winners of the contest, becoming the first two confirmed artists competing in the newcomers section of the Sanremo Music Festival 2012.[12]

Sanremo New Generation[edit]

The contest Sanremo New Generation was organized by RAI, and it was held between December 2009 and January 2010. The 988 songs competing in the contest[15] were published on the Sanremo Music Festival official website on 3 December 2009.[16] A jury, composed of Massimo Cotto, Gigio D'Ambrosio, Andrea Lo Vecchio and Mariolina Simone later selected the 8 winning acts, chosen as the last performers competing in the newcomers section of the Sanremo Music Festival 2010.[17] The winners of the contest—Tony Maiello, Nina Zilli, Nicolas Bonazzi, Jessica Brando, Broken Heart College, Mattia De Luca, La Fame Di Camilla and Luca Marino—were announced on 12 January 2010, through the Sanremo Music Festival official website.[18]

Big Artists section[edit]

One of the acts competing in the Big Artists section was selected through the third series of X Factor. The final of the talent show took place on 2 December 2009, and Marco Mengoni was announced the winner, becoming the first confirmed artist competing in the Sanremo Music Festival 2010.[19] The remaining artists were selected through an internal selection. The complete list of the artists participating in the Big Artists section of the Sanremo Music Festival 2010 was announced on 18 December 2009.[20] Alongside Mengoni, the list included Arisa, Malika Ayane, Simone Cristicchi, Toto Cutugno, Nino D'Angelo, Irene Grandi, Morgan, Fabrizio Moro, Irene Fornaciari with Nomadi, Noemi, Povia, the trio composed of Pupo, Emanuele Filiberto and Luca Canonici, Enrico Ruggeri, Valerio Scanu and Sonohra.[21]

However, in early February 2010, Morgan was ejected from the competition,[22] following an interview released to the Italian magazine Max, in which he admitted that he had used drugs as an antidepressant.[23] Morgan was not replaced by any other artist, therefore the number of contestants was reduced to fifteen.[24]

Nights[edit]

First night[edit]

Big Artists section[edit]

During the first night, each act in the "Big Artists Section" performed for the first time the competing song. Immediately after the performance, each song was ranked by a jury composed of 300 people between the age of 16 and 85 years, selected by Ipsos among music listeners.[25] At the end of the night, the three songs receiving the lowest points—Toto Cutugno's "Aeroplani", Nino D'Angelo's "Jammo jà" and "Italia amore mio" by Pupo, Emanuele Filiberto and Luca Canonici—were eliminated from the competition.[26]

Controversy[edit]

At the end of the first round of the final, when the top three artists were revealed, the musicians of the Sanremo Festival Orchestra, who contributed determining the final ranking, protested against the announced result, throwing their sheet music on stage. Particularly, they booed when it was announced that Malika Ayane's song "Ricomincio da qui" was not admitted to the second round of the competition.[69] The protest was also supported by most of the journalists attending the event.[70][71] Orchestra conductor Marco Sabiu explained that their votes were completely different from the final outcome of the competition, which was strongly changed by televoting, and he asked that the detailed results, including the ranking determined by the Sanremo Festival Orchestra only, were released.[72] Artistic director Gianmarco Mazzi refused to do so, claiming that, according to the rules of the 2010s contest, partial rankings were not supposed to be revealed.[73][74] For that reason, the detailed results were never revealed by RAI.[75] Mazzi later criticized televoting as a mechanism for determining the winner of the contest, but also explained that he expected more responsible behavior from the musicians of the Sanremo Festival Orchestra.[76]

On 22 February 2010, Enzo Mazza, chairman of the Federation of the Italian Music Industry, praised the protest by the musicians of the Sanremo Festival Orchestra,[77] claiming that "it gave back dignity to the Italian music industry, which is used to be subject to everything".[78]

During the TV show Striscia la notizia, a call center worker claimed that one of the contestants of the Sanremo Music Festival 2010 bought votes to gain positions in the final ranking.[79]
