Achille Lauro Eurovision
Achille Lauro is representing San Marino at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 with the song “Stripper”, after winning the Una Voce per San Marino song contest.
The song Stripper is about turning gender norms, as well as societal norms, firmly on their head. However, to Achille, the message runs even deeper than that. He said on the Eurovision website: “Stripper talks about freedom. It is a push for us to be as free as we can. To be able to choose and to be free to choose. I always wanted to bring on stage the concept of freedom. Not only the freedom of gender, but also the freedom of being who you want to be in your life. The only advice that I could give to my people in this regard is to accept yourself.”
Comparing the prestigious Festival di Sanremo to the Eurovision Song Contest, Achille said: “These are two different kinds of events. In Sanremo, there are no public rehearsals, so the first time you go on stage is the first time people see your performance – there is a surprise element there. And I think that in Sanremo, we are able to bring some controversial performances, we are able to bring a new wave of performance. I will try as much as possible, even though the rehearsals are public in Eurovision, to bring something different and to bring something that is unique from me. It’s very important to be different. Being unique and doing something that no one else has done before is so important as an artist.”
