Tested positive January 2nd, but is this specifically for artists who died of it? Because he's not dead or anything.

Alma BarrocaAlma Barroca    Thu, 28/01/2021 - 18:51

No, artists who tested positive also fit. Have I added him already? Because I honestly don't know, Jan 14 I was not even in my own city.

Yikes, those are bad news :O! I just hope they don't cancel Sanremo as a whole because of it like they did with Eurovision, but honestly I'm not sure about what to expect. March is too close to even think of postponing it =/ Hope everything ends up well, I know how Italy likes Sanremo.

IceyIcey    Fri, 19/02/2021 - 23:24

I'm personally no big fan of the festival (seriously, I got the attention span of a goldfish and you expect to keep me sitting in front of TV from 9 pm to 2 am? Really?), but it's proven to be a very valid way to select our songs, so I really hope it won't me either deleied or cancelled (the effect on Eurovision would be the same at this point)
