About the song "Zitti E Buoni" by Måneskin: idea, video, victory at Eurovision 2021

«Zitti e Buoni" - song by the Italian band Maneskin, with which the guys won the international song contest "Eurovision-2021"! By the way: this is the third time that Italy has won the famous competition, and the first since Toto Cutugno won this award in 1990. “We just want to tell the whole of Europe, the whole world that rock and roll never dies!” Damiano Davidwhen the band took the trophy... Many viewers were satisfied with the victory of Italy, because the rock band really gave everything on stage one hundred percent (and maybe more...) For Måneskin's homeland, their victory was a huge breakthrough forward: everyone who supported them, - even journalists - applauded the team with tears in their eyes ... Of course - only with joy. bassist Victoria De Angelis commented:

“This is a message of hope after a difficult year we have gone through…” (The event was not held in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Italy being one of the hardest hit countries in Europe).


The Måneskin members themselves were surprised by their own victory: yes, the rock song "Zitti e Buoni” is not like the now popular kitsch-pop that Eurovision is famous for. But the victory of the Italian team proves once again that in addition to the established standards, the competition also takes into account the quality of music...

And although the title of the song is translated as "Be quiet”, it is very deceptive, because the mere performance of the Italians is already a heavy rock number! Bare-chested, heavy music and a lot of fireworks - Måneskin delighted the entire European public ...

Måneskin is the first band to win a song contest with 2006. The Italians, who were initially favorites to win, fought off tough competition from France and Switzerland to claim Italy's third win in this tough competition...

As a result, they were on fourth place after a national jury vote that left Switzerland ahead before a huge public vote put them in first place… Opening a bottle of champagne with his bandmates during a press conference, David said that victory would not only benefit Italy, but the whole Europe:

“We think this event has brought relief to the whole of Europe…” said leader Måneskin, referring to all the terrible consequences of the pandemic… “It was really incredible, the whole event… This Eurovision will be a shining beacon!”
