Amadeus beats own record for Sanremo audience

Maneskin, Berrettini, Fiorello shine as guests on first night

(ANSA) - ROME, FEB 2 - Presenter Amadeus on Tuesday night beat his own record, set in 2020, for a Sanremo song festival opening night TV audience.
    Some 10.911 million Italian tunes in to the annual extravaganza of song and talent, notching a share of 54.7%.
    That compared to 10.058 million viewers and a share of 52.2% in 2020, when the presenter first took on the demanding job of host and chief organizer.
    Highlights of the first night included the guest return of last year's winners Maneskin, the Roman rock band that went on to Eurovision and US glory, and a candid appearance by tennis star Matteo Berrettini who got to the Wimbledon final last year and lost in the Aussie Open semi to eventual winner and 21-time slam winner Rafa Nadal.
    There was also a star turn by showman Fiorello. (ANSA).
