During an inteview with ESC Insight, RAI’s deputy Director of Events Claudio Fasulo has confirmed that Sanremo 2022 will not be geoblocked. When answering the question about how whether we will be able to watch Sanremo this year Claudio said the following:
“I can tell you right now that the Sanremo Festival will not be geo-blocked…”
“…We will see it open completely on RAI Play as well as on the RAI Italia channel around the world. We had a lot of feedback when it was blocked. That was not a good choice, so no limitations on Sanremo this year. Everyone will see it on RAI Play and RAI.it.”Claudio Fasulo on how to view Sanremo 2022 this year.

Italy in the Eurovision Song Contest
Reigning winners Italy has participated in the contest 46 times since it began in 1956. In addition to 2021, they also won in 1964 with Gigliola Cinquetti’s “Non ho l’eta” and in 1990 with Toto Cutugno’s “Insieme: 1992”.
Italy took an extended break from the contest from 1994 to 2011 (returning once in 1997). They became a member of the Big Five upon their return and have only missed the top 10 twice since. They finished second twice: in 2011 (with Raphael Gualazzi’s “Madness of Love”) and in 2019 (with Mahmood’s “Soldi”). Italy also notched third place in 2015 with Il Volo’s “Grande Amore”, which won the televote.
Perhaps the most iconic Italian Eurovision entry is Domenico Modugno’s “Nel blu, dipinto di blu” – better known as “Volare” – which placed third in 1958. It was a success in the American charts and won the first ever Grammy award for Song of the Year.
