Sanremo Music Festival chronology
2012

The Sanremo Music Festival 2012 was the 62nd annual Sanremo Music Festival. It was held at the Teatro Ariston in Sanremo, province of Imperia, during the five nights between 14 February 2012 and 18 February 2012,[1] and it was broadcast by Rai 1.

The show, presented by Gianni Morandi with Ivana Mrazova and Rocco Papaleo,[2] was a competition divided in two different sections. The "Big Artists Section", including 14 established Italian artists performing a previously unreleased song, was won by Emma Marrone with "Non è l'inferno". The "Newcomers Section", won by Alessandro Casillo performing "È vero (che ci sei)", was a competition starring eight debuting or little-known artists. Two of them were chosen through the contest Area Sanremo, and six of them were chosen as the winners of the web contest SanremoSocial.

At the end of the competition, Nina Zilli was chosen by a specific jury among the participants in the Sanremo Music Festival as the Italian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2012. Alessandro Casillo was excluded from the selection, since he will be under the age of 16 during the Eurovision Song Contest.[3]

Presenters and personnel[edit]

Sanremo Music Festival 2012 presenters

Gianni Morandi
Rocco Papaleo

A few hours after the final of the Sanremo Music Festival 2011, Rai 1 director Mauro Mazza expressed his willing to confirm Gianni Morandi as the main presenter of the show for the 2012 contest.[4] In an interview released in April 2011, Morandi revealed he was considering the opportunity to present the contest for a second time,[5] and on 13 October 2011 Morandi was officially confirmed as the presenter of the Sanremo Music Festival 2012.[6] On the same day, Gianmarco Mazzi, who had signed a 2 years long contract with RAI in late 2010,[7] was confirmed as the artistic director of the show.[6][8] It was Mazzi's seventh Sanremo Music Festival.[9]

In late December 2011, Gianmarco Mazzi also announced that Italian actor and director Rocco Papaleo,[10] Czech model Ivana Mrazova and English-Croatian model Tamara Ecclestone would have been Morandi's co-presenters of the show.[11] Despite this, on 20 January 2012, Gianmarco Mazzi officially announced that Tamara Ecclestone would not be one of the presenters, following her refusal to be in Sanremo during the rehearsal for the show.[12] During an interview released to the Italian newspaper La Stampa, Ecclestone claimed that she had never signed any contract, and that, according to her informal agreement with RAI, she should have been in Sanremo starting from 12 February 2012, but she was later asked to start working on the show on 1 February 2012.[13] Following a neck pain, Ivana Mrazova was not on stage during the first night of the show, and she was replaced by 2011 co-presenters Elisabetta Canalis and Belén Rodríguez.[14]

The authors of the show, directed by Stefano Vicario, were Ivano Balduini, Simona Ercolani, Michele Ferrari, Francesco Valitutti and Federico Moccia.[15] For the nineteenth time, the shenography, inspired by a spacecraft, was created by Gaetano Castelli, together with his daughter Chiara.[15][16] For the tenth consecutive year, each artist was accompanied by the Sanremo Festival Orchestra, conducted by Marco Sabiu, as in 2011.[17][18]

Selections[edit]

Newcomers section[edit]

AreaSanremo[edit]

The artists competing in the newcomers section were selected through two different contests. The first one, organized by the Comune di Sanremo and titled AreaSanremo, was divided into two sections—SanremoLab, reserved to Italian-language songs, and SanremoDoc, featuring songs in an Italian dialect. The jury evaluating the SanremoLab contestants was composed of Niccolò Agliardi, Beppe Carletti, L'Aura and Mauro Ermanno Giovanardi, while the jury for the SanremoDoc section included Massimo Morini, Davide Van De Sfroos, Peppe Voltarelli and Edoardo Bennato.[19]

The 10 winners of the contest—Levy Prato, Kachupa, Erika Mineo, Andrea Devis Mozzate, Bidiel, Giuseppe Franchino, Lavinia Desideri and Iohosemprevoglia in the SanremoLab section, Luca Bussoleti and the duo composed of Stefano Cherchi and Maurizio Chisari for the SanremoDoc section—were announced on 8 December 2011.[20][21] On 9 December 2011, a jury composed of Gianni Morandi, Gianmarco Mazzi, Giorgio Giuffra and Claudia Lolli selected two acts among the ten winners. Therefore, the bands Bidiel and Iohosemprevoglia became the first two confirmed contestants of the Sanremo Music Festival 2012.[22][23]

SanremoSocial[edit]

The remaining six contestants were selected through a web contest, titled SanremoSocial. 400 out of 1,574 participants in the contest were excluded because their songs did not fulfill the rules to participate in the Sanremo Music Festival, mainly concerning the length of the song or the inclusion of advertisers' brands in their lyrics.[24]

After uploading a video of the proposed song through the social network Facebook, contestants were voted by users, and the 30 most voted acts, together with 30 additional artists chosen by a specific jury, were asked to perform live on 12 January 2012, during the Sanremo Social Day, broadcast live on the Festival's official website.[25] At the end of the live performances, the artists were selected by a jury composed of presenter Gianni Morandi, artistic director Gianmarco Mazzi, Rai Radio 1's Gianmaurizio Foderaro and Silvia Notargiacomo, Rai Radio 2's Federica Gentile and Facebook account manager Saverio Schiano Lomoriello.[26] The six winners of the contest—Giordana Angi, Erica Mou, Celeste Gaia, Marco Guazzone, Giulia Anania and Alessandro Casillo— were announced on 14 January 2012 during the TV show SanremoSocial Day - La scelta.[27][28]

Big Artists section[edit]

The acts participating in the Big Artists section of the Sanremo Music Festival 2012 were chosen through an internal selection. In early December 2011, during an interview released to the Italian magazine TV Sorrisi e Canzoni, Emma Marrone announced she would be one of the contestants of the festival.[29] On 24 December 2011, Eugenio Finardi also confirmed he would compete in the Big Artists section, performing the song "E tu lo chiami Dio".[30] The complete list of the participants in the Big Artists section was announced on 15 January 2012, during the TV programme L'arena.[31][32] Alongside Marrone and Finardi, the list included Dolcenera, Arisa, Samuele Bersani, Chiara Civello, Francesco Renga, Irene Fornaciari, Marlene Kuntz, Nina Zilli, Noemi, Matia Bazar, Pierdavide Carone with Lucio Dalla, and the duo composed of Gigi D'Alessio and Loredana Bertè.[31]

Immediately after the list's announcement, some fans claimed that Gigi D'Alessio and Loredana Bertè had already released a small portion of their song through their official Facebook accounts, despite the contest rules, according to which the competing songs cannot be publicly performed or released before the show.[33] On the same day, Alessandro Fabrizi, manager of Italian singer Daniele Magro, claimed that Chiara Civello's song was publicly performed by Magro, Civello herself, and by Daiana Tejera, co-writer of the song.[34] However, on 2 February 2012, RAI released a press statement announcing that the two songs fulfilled the requirements for being considered "new songs", therefore Civello, D'Alessio and Berté were confirmed as participants in the show.[35][36][37]

Nights[edit]

First night[edit]

Big Artists section[edit]

On 14 February 2012, each act in the "Big Artists" section performed a previously unreleased song. According to the rules of the contest, a ranking should have been determined by a jury composed of 300 people, each one giving a minimum of 1 point and a maximum of 10 points to each song, and at the end of the night, the two artists receiving the lowest points should have been eliminated.[38] However, during the second performance of the night, a technical problem in the voting system occurred. In the beginning, the jury was asked to continue voting through a paper-based system, but after the last performance, it was announced that the voting was nullified. Therefore, all the artists were admitted to the second night of the show.[39][40]

Due to illness, co-presenter Ivana Mrzazova was unable to attend. She was substituted by Belen Rodriguez and Elisabetta Canalis, the co-presenters of the 2011 festival.[39]

Singer and actor Adriano Celentano was a notable guest the first night. He caused much controversy when he attacked the Catholic Church and the Italian Catholic magazine Famiglia Cristiana and newspaper Avvenire during his monologue.[39]

The outcome of each match was determined by televoting only.

The competition, completely unrelated to the main competition, was won by Marlene Kuntz with Patti Smith, performing "The World Became the World", the English-language version of Premiata Forneria Marconi's "Impressioni di settembre".[55]
