The 2022 Eurovision stage’s concept is The Sun Within! RAI has come up with one of the most modern and state of the art stages to grace the competition which include an Italian garden, a water water and the inspiration of the sun. The stage will feature the movements of light and the kinetic sun.

Francesca Montinaro says:

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.
