Italy – San Remo 2017 has just come to its conclusion and it was last years Newcomer Winner, Francesco Gabbani who is taking home, what I think is the best Trophy in the world (It’s so gold and green).
Francesco Gabbani has won the 67th San Remo Music Festival with his song “Occidentalis Karma” and as the winner he will have the first offer to represent Italy in May.
Francesco beat off 2nd place Fiorella Mannoia and third place Ermal Meta after a super final reaching victory.
Rumors before the show said Gabbani was willing to take part in the contest but official word from both Francesco and RAI is still sto be confirmed. Fiorella will get the next offer if Gabbani declines but she has already expressed disinterest in running for Eurovison
Congratulations to a worthy winner I say. Will we be in Italy in 2018 if Gabbani takes the offer?
Edit: RAI have confirmed that Francesco HAS accepted their invite to represent Italy in Kyiv.
