The third evening of the Festival featured the duets of the 26 Big in the competition, accompanied by many special guests
Sanremo 2021, the looks of March 4: third evening
Music, music and more music: on the third evening of the Sanremo 2021 Festival, the long-awaited duets of the Big in the competition were the masters. The Ariston stage welcomed many artists struggling with performances dedicated to the great successes of the Italian songwriter. Given the very rich (and demanding) lineup, Fiorello had to give up the opening sketch which in the first and second evening saw him in the role of an unlikely Achille Lauro. Opening the third evening was, however, an exciting tribute to the great Lucio Dalla on the occasion of his birthday, entrusted to the Negramaro who sang March 4, 1943. After that, the third evening of the Festival went straight to life with the duets of the 26 Big in the race.

The songs of last night
The third evening of Sanremo 2021 delighted the home audience with some of the greatest hits of Italian music. The Big took turns on stage with many welcome guests, starting with Noemi who sang Before leaving with Neffa. Space for the energy of Pensão Positivo by Jovanotti, a song chosen by the singer-songwriter Fulminacci who for the occasion was accompanied by Valerio Lundini and a bubbly Roy Paci on trumpet. After that Francesco Renga sang the song C’è una causa di più by Ornella Vanoni in tandem with Casadilego, while Extraliscio with Davide Toffolo duet with Peter Pichler in Medley Rosamunda.
Duet (with unexpected events) for Fasma paired with Nesli on the notes of La fine, then the very welcome return to the Ariston of I Pinguini Tattici Nucleari, who won third place in Sanremo 2020 with the song Ringo Starr. This time the band accompanied Bugo on stage in An Adventure by Lucio Battisti.
