He is fully supported back home, not only by his fans and the Italian broadcaster RAI but virtually by all his fellow artists like Eros Ramazzotti or Andrea Bocelli who've been backing him on social media in the last couple of days. Also the city of Turin has offered to host the competition in case Italy wins tonight.
