Michele Perniola (1998) and Anita Simoncini (1999) are the chosen artists to represent the Republic of San Marino at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in Austria. As they are both going to be 16 next year, it could turn out that Michele and Anita are going to be considered as the youngest duo in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest. Anita alone will set up a new record, being the first and only artist to take part at the Junior Eurovision and at the Eurovision Song Contest in a row.
For those who are still not familiar with two young Eurovision faces, Michele Perniola won the Rai 1 programme dedicated to the young talents called Ti lascio una canzone (2012). A year later he took part at the Junior Eurovision in Kiev representing San Marino with the song O-o-O Sole intorno a me.
Anita Simoncini has studied singing in a choir directed by the San Marino’s Maestro Fausto Giacomini and has lately started studying with Linda Hermes. At the same time, Anita is a San Marino member of the The Peppermints, the girl band that represented San Marino at the latest Junior Eurovision in Malta this November.
