As Italy is getting ready to choose their Junior Eurovision representative, the Italian public broadcaster RAI has confirmed their participation for Eurovision 2016.
RAI confirmed their participation through social media, cheekily challenging Sweden to a rematch. This follows Il Volo’s excellent result in Vienna, placing third and winning the televote with their song “Grande Amore”.

According to INFE Greece, RAI is currently deciding on how the Italian representative will be chosen. It is very likely that Italy will once again use the winner of the Sanremo Music Festival.
Since Italy returned to the contest in 2011, it has finished in the top 10 four times, including second and third place. After Vincenzo Cantiello won Junior Eurovision last year, it seems RAI is still focused on winning Eurovision. Will 2016 be Italy’s anno fortunato?
