Interest in the Eurovision Song Contest for Italy is still not as high as somewhat expected although the viewing figures improved during the past year and therefore, will give the opportunity to RAI to make sure that they secure another high profile artist who would like to have the opportunity to crack the European market noting that the record labels are seemingly aiming for this and thus, making the extra effort required. Sanremo in 2013 is set to be organised by Fabio Fazio and it is expected that an internal panel of judges as has been the case for the past two years will select the representative for Italy at the continental event. There have been a number of heavy weight performers mentioned but it seems that the public is either going for someone extremely popular like Marco Mengoni or for someone whose newcomer status is quickly changing in the form of Francesca Michielin who won the fifth edition of the Italian X Factor.

Nevertheless, there is one popular choice and that is Marco Mengoni from the amount of emails, tweets, and message on Facebook received by escflashmalta.com from a number of Italian followers. Marco Mengoni also rose to fame through the X Factor noting that his victory prompted his to success with his debut album entitled Solo 2.0 reaching number #1 in Italy and also achieving Gold certification. His participation in the 2013 edition of Sanremo follows his success achieved in the same competition back in 2010 noting that his second runner-up entry Credimi Ancora reached number #3 in the Italian charts and also managed to garner platinum status. It seems that negotiations have commenced with the possibility that Marco Mengoni could represent Italy but competitions, are seemingly becoming all too familiar for him and he might actually opt out of this one, which would be his biggest to date. Last year, Italy competed with Nina Zilli and her track l'Amore e Femmina which finished in ninth place garnering mostly support from the juries. It will be interesting to see how the Italian selection for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest will technically unfold so stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.
