So thanks to NEK, we are here in Sanremo, on the Mediterranean coast in the Italian Riviera – home of the Sanremo Music Festival and now NFAC.

Special well done to @Chiara_ESC who sent song “Fatti Avanti Amore” and earned Italy its very first win at NFAC, albeit a very narrow victory – beating Estonia by a single point.

Italy have organised us a great show, in which a record number of entries have been received. A total number of 34 delegations are present for NFAC 4, which includes debuts from Luxembourg, Georgia, Armenia and Croatia, along with returns from Belarus, Macedonia and Slovenia.

Due to the poor performance of previous host nations, Italy have taken the decision to enter the contest at the semi final stage, risking the host nation not being in the final for the first time. However took this decision, in order to get their song noticed.
