Some curiosities about the artists competing

After having increased the number of artists who have passed the scrutiny of the Festival Commission for the “great quality of the songs proposed by young people”, Amadeus and colleagues Claudio Fasulo, Gian Marco Mazzi, Massimo Martelli and Leonardo De Amicis have chosen, among the more than 700 questions received and the 46 artists resulting from a first screening, the 12 names proposed above, as participants of Sanremo Giovani 2022. Four of them – Destro, Littamè, Senza_Cri and Vittoria – come directly from the initiative Area Sanremo. Others are young faces but already known to the radio, social media and talent audiences. Among all the names of the songwriter stand out Matteo Romano, often in high radio rotation and with a large following on TikTok and Martina Beltrami, who participated in the 19th edition of “Amici” won by Gaia.
