(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 4 – The 2021 Sanremo Music Festival
continued to perform decently on its second night, despite there
being no audience in the Ariston theatre due to COVID-19
restrictions, attracting 10.113 million viewers to State
broadcaster RAI’s Rai1 channel on Wednesday, 41.2% of the
overall TV audience share.
    That compares to 12.841million viewers and 52.5% of the share on
the second night last year.
    The guest of honour on Wednesday was Laura Pausini, who won the
best original song prize at the Golden Globes on Sunday for ‘Io
Si’ from in The Life Ahead, Sophia Loren’s latest film directed
by her son Edoardo Ponti.
    She is one of many Italian artists whose careers were launched
by the festival.
    There was also a tribute to late Italian film-score composer
Ennio Morricone.
    The much-loved festival, which runs until Saturday, revolves
around a best-song competition.
    The winner gets to represent Italy at the Eurovision Song
    The annual music extravaganza usually takes place in February
but has been pushed back this year due to the pandemic. (ANSA).
