On days when we don’t have matches for UEFA Euro 2020, we will be looking at the Host Cities that have also hosted a Eurovision event – whether it be the Eurovision Song Contest, Junior Eurovision Song Contest or the Eurovision Dance Contest. Today we start off with Rome, where the Stadio Olimpico is hosting some matches.
1991 – Studio 15 di Cinecittà
The 36th Eurovision Song Contest was held at Studio 15 di Cinecittà, in Rome. The Contest was hosted by Gigliola Cinquetti and Toto Cutugno. Carola took victory for Sweden, with “Fångad av en stormvind”, scoring 146 points.
Kim Jackson represented Ireland, with “Could It Be That I’m In Love”. Kim finished in joint 10th place, with 47 points.
Join us tomorrow, as we visit Baku, another Euro 2020 Eurovision Host City.
