Music news

We had been waiting all week for what could happen last night in Sanremo and it happened. Aitana and Sangiovanni opened the night of covers with a performance that conquered Spaniards and Italians in equal measure. From this side of the Mediterranean Sea we feel great pride, but on the other side they discovered and fell in love with the star who here, after six years, has already established himself as one of the most important pop figures in our country.

The Catalan performed yesterday Butterflies in the 74th edition of an emblematic and historic Music Festival. And she even dared to sing in the language of his collaboration partner! Farfalle opened the door to, who knows if in the not too distant future, the author of alpha may consider singing in the language of Dante Alighieri.

Likewise, Aitana has wasted no time on her visit to Italiana. As on every trip she has already taken this year—Paris, Los Angeles and Barcelona—, the singer has not only reunited with her good friend Sangiovanni; She has also immersed herself in the culture, sharing some wines and the house’s specialty delicacy: pasta.

The young woman from San Clemente de Llobregat thus joins the Sanremo phenomenon that Ana Mena already experienced two years ago, when she presented Duecentomilla ore as a soloist and full participant of the festival.

Sangiovanni is full of praise for Aitana
