Same anti-covid rules as last year for singers involved in the Sanremo 2022 Festival but with the changes introduced by the new decrees. So, for example, there would hardly be a new Irama case: last year the singer was quarantined for the positivity of a member of his staff. Today, if a singer had done the whole vaccination cycle and one of his collaborators tested positive, he would no longer have to be in quarantine and could therefore go on stage. But the Irama case has made school, instead, in case of positivity of the singers: if a singer could not go on stage, instead of his performance, the video of the dress rehearsal of his performance will be broadcast. Amadeus, in fact, has already said that his intention is to bring all 25 singers in the competition to the final and invited the artists to do the dress rehearsals, those immediately before the start of the festival, with stage clothes, so as not to penalize anyone who could not possibly go on stage during the live broadcast. “The record companies and the staff of the artists have already taken steps in this direction”, Fimi CEO Enzo Mazza told Adnkronos. “We are awaiting the official sending of the protocol but we have already had meetings with Rai in which the rules were illustrated, which are those of last year, with the changes introduced by the new decrees on quarantines, green passes, etc.”. Strict rules also remain for the singers’ press activity, which will only take place online, precisely to avoid cases of contagion. On the other hand, the face-to-face press conference has been confirmed (which will in any case be streamed on the Rai platform) for conductor and artistic director, every morning of the festival week, in the press room, which again this year will be at the Casino and not at the Ariston Roof. But with the prohibition of journalists from approaching Amadeus and other talents and members of the organization for the ‘on the sidelines’. Also because the conductor is the only one for whom it is difficult to foresee a plan B in case of positivity, since he must necessarily intervene directly.
