Just under two weeks to go to the festival but Sanremo records the first positive in the cast. Upon arrival at the Ariston Theater, one of the members of the Extraliscio band, Moreno Conficconi, known as Il Biondo, tested positive for the antigenic swab he underwent before entering the theater for rehearsals, as per anti-Covid health protocol. The news, anticipated by the site of the XIXth century, was confirmed at Adnkronos by festival circles. For the band, which is competing at the festival, isolation was triggered waiting for the positive component to be subjected to the molecular swab.
If the positivity is confirmed, the band could still hope to participate in the festival if, after ten days of quarantine, the swab turns out to be negative.
