Italy is to join the 2014 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, according to a news article on the official Junior Eurovision website posted this evening. The country will make its début at this year’s event in Malta, having only returned to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2011.
Italy will be presented in Junior Eurovisino by Rai Gulp, the children’s channel. Vladislav Yakovlev, Executive Supervisor of the competition had this to say:
“It’s wonderful to be able to welcome RAI Gulp to the Junior Eurovision family” . “Italy and Malta have a special musical friendship – with both Gaia and Federica having taken part in ‘Ti lascio una canzone’, and Gaia also having been in in San Remo Junior – so it seems only natural that Italy should choose to make its Junior Eurovision debut in Malta this November”.
