The stars of Eurovision 2022 are ready to burn hot like the sun. And the clever minds at Italian design firm Atelier Francesca Montinaro will help them do that with a glorious stage design inspired by our most important star.
“The Sun Within” plays on the movement and energy of the sun with a series of moving arches. From the sun we all draw life, so it’s fitting that the stage will be framed by water and “a lush Italian garden”. Yellow sun, blue water, green bush — we honour Mother Earth and say Amen!
Italian designer and visionary Francesca describes her plans this way.
“The kinetic sun, source of spectacular movements and tricks of light, rules the stage and represents our Italian attitude: always on the move, rebellious, creative, welcoming, passionate, intuitive. We are the ones with the sun within, and this is our way to be in this world.”

“The cascade of water that frames the stage, allegorically represents the sea that surrounds us, a symbol of our complex culture. The stage is our peninsula: a country where each contestant is welcomed, no matter where they are coming from.”
“The artists and their teams will be hosted in a lush Italian garden, where vegetation mingles with rays of light, suspended between reality and illusion, transporting them to a playful and architectural dimension.”
Unleash your inner fire: This sketch shows the sun, the centre of our universe, taking its place at the centre of the stage.
