Al Bano proposed his candidacy as creative director of the 70th festival of Sanremo, which will take place in 2020. He announced it in an interview with Il Tempo, and it is the third possible candidacy after those of Mina and Amadeus.
Albano said: “Mina? It would be great, but I don’t think it will be done. As far as I’m concerned, I propose a song a year yes and three no, so I’d be ready for the next edition. But this time I want to present the Festival”.
Albano added that his colleagues Gianni Morandi and Claudio Baglioni have opened the way in recent years. Indeed, the artists can make a great contribution to the Festival, the singer claimed. And besides, he stressed that his characteristic is “doing things gracefully“, which is no small thing “these days”.
