Wind Music Awards is the annual ceremony where the music industry awards the best-selling artists of the past year. Broadcast live from Arena di Verona, the Roman amphitheatre build in the first century AC, on Rai1, we had the chance to see many former Italian Eurovision participants take the stage of Arena Di Verona.
Artists that have sold at least platinum for a single (more than 50.000 copies), gold for an album (more than 25.000 copies), or have performed for over 40.000 live spectators over the past 12 months were awarded at WMA 2017. Among the artists that were honoured were a lot of former Eurovision participants. Francesco Gabbani (2017), Il Volo (2015), Emma (2014), Raphael Gualazzi (2011), Massimo Ranieri (1971,1973) Enrigo Ruggeri (1993) and Umberto Tozzi (1987) were some of them.
Carlo Conti and Vanessa Incontrada were the hosts of the 11th Wind Music Awards, which has always been in either Rome or Verona. You can watch the glamorous show on the official site of RAI.
