The fourth show of the Sanremo Italian Song Festival took place last night.

All the 4 artists competing in the Giovani Category performed their entries, which were selected during the second and third night. Hence  a 50/50 deliberation via  a special panel of judges and televoting  determined the final ranking: Antonio Maggio won the competition with the song Mi servirebbe sapere, while Il Cile won the Best Lyrics Award with the song Le parole non servono più, knocked out from the competition during the first night, and Renzo Rubino won the Critics Award with the song Il postino (Amami uomo).
