The words of Federica Brignone

Federica Brignone will be one of the guests of honor on the opening night of the Sanremo Festival. After Jannik Sinner’s no, the skier from Valle d’Aosta accepted Amadeus’s invitation: "At first my reaction è was: help, I’m busy with training and competitions. Then I thought it would be an opportunity to live a unique experience".

"I è always liked music since I was a child, when I listened to Battisti with my mother. And I think skiing is also music: every descent, every turn has its own rhythm that is always different. When I was little I used to sing, even today I sing when I free ski. I really like rock, Dire Straits, Tracy Chapman, but I also love Italian artists, like Marco Mengoni, Laura Pausini. I learned to play guitar and took hip hop classes, but I don’t have much time, I’m always on the road".

Inevitable question, in the interview granted to ANSA, about Sinner’s no: "Rejecting è a difficult choice, but as an athlete I understand it, becauseé you have your schedule and you want to focus on that. In my case the proposal è fell well, because è I was able to organize myself so that I would be there. But Jannik è young, he will have&eagrave; other opportunities".
