The Aussievision team loves a good competition - FantaSanremo is no exception!
In the spirit of friendly competition, ten Aussievison team members have submitted a team to our league - may the best squad win!
Read below to find out the Aussievision teams for 2024.
What is FantaSanremo?
FantaSanremo is the Italian music industry version of Fantasy Football leagues. Players compose a 'team' by selecting five of the artists competing, appointing a captain and based on the competition results you either earn or lose points...with a twist!
To keep suspense - it is unknown to the players what exactly will earn them points until the competition starts! Additonally, Sanremo performers usually get quite competitive and will do all sorts of outlandish acts on stage just to collect the FantaSanremo bag (think Rkomi doing push ups with Amadeus on stage)!
Here are some examples of how points are awarded based on this mornings results:
Wearing sunglasses: +5 points
Standing ovation: +10 points
Barefoot: +5 points
Artist presented by co-host: +5 points
Performing after 1am: +10 points
Going to the crowd to perform: +15 points
Hugging the host: +10 points
High-five with co-host: +10 points
Placing in the Top 5: +20 points
Dedicating the song to a family member/friend: +10 points
Giving flowers to the conductor: +10 points
Wearing a hat or cap: +5 points
Enrico Melozzi conducts the orchestra: +20 points
Wearing a tank top: +10 points
Totally black outfit: +10 points
The Morandi - sweeping the stage: +18 points
Twerking: +10 points
Swearing: +10 points
Sitting on the stairs or floor: -5 points
Not descending either Ariston staircase: -5 points
Stumbling on stage: -20 points
Booed by the audience: -30 points
Each player has 100 'baudi' (FantaSanremo currency) to spend across their team with the most hyped artists being worth more and newcomers and Sanremo Giovani artists generally costing less. Debut artists can provide very good value for the discerned FantaSanremo player!
Watch out because the captain is crucial for the final evening where their points are doubled (both good and bad).
The whole affair is very tongue-in-cheek and extremely popular locally. The competition is open to international participants. If this sounds like fun, you can submit a team in 2025 here.
