Following a hugely competitive selection process that saw 17 individual bids, the honour of hosting the 66th Eurovision Song Contest has been won by Turin.
The capital of Piedmont will be the third Italian city to host the event after Naples (1965) and Rome (1991), thanks to Måneskin’s magnificent victory in Rotterdam the previous year.
Eurovision Song Contest Executive Supervisor Martin Österdahl had this to say: “Turin is the perfect Host City for the 66th Eurovision Song Contest.
As we saw during the 2006 Winter Olympics, Pala Olimpico exceeds all the requirements needed to stage a global event of this scale and we have been very impressed with the enthusiasm and commitment from the City of Turin who will welcome thousands of fans next May.
This will be the first Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Italy in 30 years and, together with our Host broadcaster Rai, we are determined to make it a special one.”
Further details about the shows, tickets and accompanying events will be revealed in the coming weeks and months – so make sure you sign up to the Douze Points newsletter for ticketing and event information as it’s released.
Fans planning to attend the Contest are advised to keep a close eye on existing and potential travel restrictions between their home country and the Host City.
