After five days full of Italian music from very high quality there has been one winner: Francesco Gabbani! He has captured the Italian hearts by a storm with his modern pop song “Occidentali’s Karma”. The striking monkey outfit of the singer has been an eyecatcher over these days. Furthermore the modern song could match the Italian taste in music the most. This is going to be the new summer hit in Italy and maybe also in Europe.
It has not been officially announced, but normally the winner of the San Remo Festival is eligible to represent Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest. This is going to be a fresh and straight forward song from Italy as never seen before. This would be a perfect candidate for Kiev 2017.
