2019 saw the birth of the Sanremo Giovani World Tour (SGWT), a collaboration project between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and RAI for the promotion abroad of new talents of Italian music. In that year, the Ministry took four of the Sanremo Giovani finalists on tour to eight cities (Tunis, Tokyo, Sydney, Buenos Aires, Toronto, Brussels, St. Petersburg) thanks to the commitment of the diplomatic-consular network and Italian Cultural Institutes.
The success of the first edition led to repeat the collaboration in 2020, which in the light of the epidemiological emergency resulted in the production by the Ministry of a 60 minute concert by four artists among the finalist of the section “New proposals” of the Festival, including the winner Leo Gassman.
The concert will be aired by RAI Italia on February 20th, 2021 at 9:30 pm (Montréal).
It should also be noted that the concert will also be broadcast in Italy on RAI Premium on 1 March, the day before the start of the 2021 edition of the Festival.
