“We are going to see what will happen, there is nothing yet but let’s see”. Then on the Madame affair: “A good blow of publicity for her”
“Let’s see if I can be there. For me Sanremo represents more than I ever saidand I risk being the man who made the most of it”. Not excluding his participation as a guest in Sanremo 2023 is Al Bano who, in an interview with Adnkronos, reveals that there have been some “approaches ‘ relating to his presence on the Ariston stage, but still nothing official.” We’re going to see what will happen, there’s still nothing but let’s see,” says the artist from Cellino San Marco in a cryptic voice.
Who is keen to remind us how important the Ligurian event has been to him since his early youth. “For me, for us in the deep South, Sanremo represented pagan Christmas – says Al Bano again – The most beautiful musical gifts came from there and kept us company in the desolation of a South as cheerful as you like, but poor and abandoned”.
“The redemption of the great Domenico Modugno in Sanremo said it all – he continues – and it is enough to see what happened with the Maneskin and their success in the world to understand the importance of this event”.
Then, regarding the controversy that exploded over Madame’s participation in Sanremo after the news that the Vicenza artist is being investigated for false ideology regarding the green pass, Al Bano comments: “The story of Madame and the green pass? A lot of publicity for her. The important thing is that you bring a good song because in that event the song is the most important thing, and it matters more than the character”.
