So hot the city of torino was founded more than 2 000 years ago to host the eurovision song contest. Preparations began under the reign of the ostrogoths and underwent an acceleration when torino became the first capital of italy in the course of the 1900s. The sets and special effects were perfected, and today we can finally enjoy this. Magnificent venue in detail from the ceiling are suspended. 150 tons of material, the equivalent of 50 large size elephants more than 400 440 speakers. They can even hear us on mars. Four kilometers of cable enough to wrap the tower of pisa 13 times 3 000 lights. That would transform the colosseum into a huge open air discotheque enough monitors and leds to fill an entire ten story. Building all this thanks to the work of hundreds of technicians and volunteers and to the intuition of julius caesar who said lenny, vd, Music and once again, are you having a good time. We certainly are remember that eurovision is an event that you can experience on tick. Tock and all of our social channels, the long race of the eurovision song contest, has begun. Everyone is already asking themselves the same question. Who will reach the final? Will it be albania or latvia or lithuania or switzerland? Could it be slovenia or ukraine and weve got more music on the way? What a green room yeah wow? It feels so good to be immersed in this marvelous italian style garden.

I remember a theater of the imagination that even featured angels and devils ive seen the light clashing with the dark side and the prince of darkness mingling with sinuous dancers. But here in the clash between good and evil, good always triumphs.

Do you have any doubts and for those of you who believe in the triumph of love, follow me because now its time to fly like celestial beings, eurovisions fanfares have whisked us off into outer space. Theyve allowed us to defy the force of gravity theyve. Let us caress the moon and theyve brought us back thanks to the gentle flight of a hot air balloon to dance, to duo, with a robot to worble happily and to recklessly abandon oneself to various forms of yodeling Music. Only to end up ecstatic and exposed dancing with wolves, okay time to get back to work, but ill be waiting for you until the next occasion, when, together we reopen the book of memories. Applause and now let me introduce you to the winner of the junior eurovision song contest 2021 from armenia, give it up for malena, ciao, italia, good evening europe.
