EMMA in “Apnea” in Sanremo, then the tour and the party at the Forum in Assago (Info and tickets)

Music news

EMMA will be the protagonist of the competition at the 74th edition of the Sanremo Festival with APNEAa song written by Emma herself together with Paolo Antonacci, Davide Petrella and Julien Boverod (aka Jvli), who is also the producer of the song.

In Sanremo we will see Emma in a new guise, free and consistent with the person we learned to know with “Souvenir” (READ THE REVIEW).

From the first moments in the studio, during the writing of Apnea, Emma felt that it was the right song to bring to the Ariston stage to continue her musical journey. A song that she will make you dance, three minutes of great transport in which the audience will be left holding their breath.


During the evening of the Festival dedicated to covers, Friday 9 February, Emma will pay homage to Tiziano Ferro, a great artist and friend from whom she has drawn great inspiration over the years, with a medley of his greatest hits, and at her side for the occasion there will be the Genoese rapper and singer-songwriter Bresh: pop and urban will intertwine for an original and surprising performance.

Maestro Alberto Cipolla will conduct the orchestra for Emma during the Sanremo week.


APNEA will be released digitally on Wednesday 7 February and from Friday 9 February it will be available in “SOUVENIR SANREMO EDITION 2024”, the only edition of Souvenir that will contain the Sanremo song and the special card kissed by Emma (available in all stores) or the card kissed and autographed (exclusively on the official Universal store).


Emma arrives in Sanremo after the release of “Souvenir” (released in October 2023 and certified gold) and the experience of “Souvenir in da club” which, between November and December, saw her as the protagonist, with multiple dates per city , on the stages of the clubs of our peninsula, to present the songs from the new album live to his audience in an intimate and rock and roll way.

While waiting to find her on the stage of the Forum in Milan on November 11th, for the big party exactly one year after the start of Souvenir in da club, this summer Emma will be on tour in the main Italian festivals (tickets available in the presale circuits usual starting from 12.00 tomorrow, Friday 2 February).
