(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 8 – Rome rock band Maneskin say they are
fired up to represent Italy at the Eurovision song contest after
their victory at the Sanremo Music Festival on Saturday.
    The group, made up of Damiano, Victoria, Ethan and Thomas,
triumphed with a track called Zitti e Buoni, a piece that is
much harder hitting than the songs that usually win the contest.
    It is ample compensation for Maneskin for having only come
second in the Italian X-Factor in 2017, despite being hot
favourites after arriving on the music scene with a bang.
    “We can’t wait,” the band said when asked about competiting at
Eurovision.
    “We are ready for this responsibility. We have broad shoulders”.
    Although viewing figures were down with respect to previous
years, the 71st Sanremo song festival can still be considered a
success, given that the week-long event was staged without an
audience in the Ligurian city’s Ariston theatre.
    The much-loved festival still managed to hold the nation’s
attention and grab headlines throughout the week. (ANSA).
