Rosanna Purchia, Deputy Mayor for Culture, had this to say about the programme of events:
‘Turin is a city full of cultural activities and events. The Eurovision Village celebrates music while respecting the environment. We want to promote the strong artistic vocation of the city to liven up and turn the lights on our territory, in the name of peace. The voice of the youth will be the symbol of hope in our future.’Eurovision.tv
About Parco dal Valentino
The Parco del Valentino was the very first public garden opened in Italy. It was opened in 1856. It will be a hub for all Eurovision fans to connect throughout the week of Eurovision 2022.
Parco del Valentino is around 7 minutes drive from the city centre and around a 30-minute walk. It is a 10-minute drive from the Pala Alpitour Arena, but if you’re feeling up to a longer walk, it’ll take around 45 minutes to get from the arena to the Eurovision Village.
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 10th, 12th, and 14th May. It’s been revealed that 40 countries will be competing in the 66th edition of the competition with Armenia & Montenegro returning to the competition.
It has also been revealed that Italy’s 2020 representative, Diodato, will perform as an interval act in the first semi-final.
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!
