IF # 14 - Sanremo Festival Yes or No? Trends and Counter-trends

Tonight, a show dedicated to the oldest and largest music festival in Italy: il Festival di Sanremo. As the 69th edition is currently broadcast on Italian TVs (from February 5th through the 9th), Italian Frequency proposes an eclectic and unconventional Sanremo's playlist: the most memorable performances, either because first (Carmen Consoli) or last (Mina) or whistled at (Vasco Rossi, and others) or provocative (Rino Gaetano, Sottotono, etc), and lots of counter-trends (songwriting, rock and rap) against the melodic-pop mainstream.
