The 39th step.... to knowing our full lineup
So we have 38 songs now seen and finally we turn to mister San Remo himself, Marco from Italy. He's solo onstage and sporting a Can Bonomo bonnet and his sideburns have expanded to take in his whole chin in the form of a fairly attractive beard. Phew, the really sinister eyes have gone and he looks a little less like a serial killer now but still not completely connecting with the cameras. Some nice sweeping camera shots but too many distant ones possibly, though with his 'I'm going to stab you' look in the eye, maybe the director is running scared? He's treading the fine line between artistic intensity and not giving a shit but his melody is very strong and this has to be top ten.
