It is only a few weeks away until the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin will get underway. Just before rehearsals get underway at the Pala Alpitour Arena in Turin, we have been given a sneak peek of the Eurovision stage in motion. The Eurovision semi-finals will take place on the 10th and 12th May. The final will then take place on May 14th. The stage design this year was created by Francesca Montinaro. You can see the stage in motion here:
2022 Eurovision Stage concept
Atelier Francesca Montinaro stated they wanted the stage concept to represent Italy. She wanted to show off the sun, the sea, the art, and the nature of Italy. It is also stated in the Ansa Culture article she wanted the stage to not just represent the country, but the Italian people themselves.
I immediately thought that talking about Italian beauties was actually talking about our creativity, which is itself an absolute artistic. We are always on the move, in all fields, we are always looking for a solution that makes us rise again”Francesca Montinaro on the Eurovision 2022 staging concept.
Eurovision Song Contest 2022
Italy won the right to host the 2022 Eurovision Contest after Måneskin won the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam. Since then, Turin was selected to host the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest, which is due to take place on the 10th, 12th, and 14th of May. 41 countries were set to be competing in the 66th edition of the competition with Armenia & Montenegro returning to the competition. However, Russia will not be participating in this year’s competition.
The slogan for this year’s Eurovision is “The Sound of Beauty” and you can see more about how the stage fits in with the concept here!
