Marinella Soldi, Chairman of Rai, in attendance said:

‘The Eurovision Song Contest is a singing festival for European young people, which has now gained a global dimension.

Rai is proud to organise the 2022 edition, which will be a huge media event reaching an audience of 200 million people with a TV show filled with cutting edge technology and reaching young people around the world on social media. Itโ€™s also a great opportunity to strengthen the cooperation between European public service media.

The Eurovision Song Contest is a springboard to stardom, as shown by the international success achieved by Mรฅneskin, winners of the last edition. Thanks to them today we are proud to be the host country of the event.

I hope Eurovision 2022 will have the same spirit and energy of this great Italian band, that with its passion, determination and the power of its music has conquered the world. We are happy to host the event in Torino, the cradle of Italian television, a city home to major cultural and sport events and ready to welcome people from all over the world.’
