The fault of an oversight or perhaps a lack of passion for the Festival. The fact is that the investigating judge of Imperia, as requested by the prosecutor’s office, acquits Blanco for the case of the stage destroyed during the performance at the Ariston during Sanremo 2023confirming the decision of the Prosecutor’s Office and rejecting the opposition presented by Codacons, association from whose complaint the investigation for damage was born. But he does it by acknowledging the young artist for having behaved in that way due to the strong tensions deriving from being in the competition. But Blanco in 2023 was a guest, not a competitor.

In a statement, in fact, Codacons contests the investigating judge’s decision for the reasons: “In motivating its decision, however, the Court of Imperia commits a “gaffe”, attributing the artist’s behavior to the tension due to the singing competition in which the the artist participated… it’s a pity, however, that in 2023 Blanco only participated in the Festival as a guest, to present his new song – explains Codacons”.

In the provision cited by Codacons with which the investigating judge Massimiliano Botti rejects Codacons’ request to continue the investigation into Blanco, we read: “In the case in question, it appears that the anger of Fabbriconi (the singer’s name) was triggered by a malfunction of the audio system which clearly risked affect its performance; in a context of strong tension such as that of the Sanremo singing performance, a harbinger of decisive outcomes for the career of each singer involved, the suspect’s anger in the face of an inconvenience that could compromise his chances of victory”.

“But Blanco – underlines Codacons – had no chance of winning, not taking part in any competition and being present at the Sanremo Festival exclusively as a guest!”

“A circumstance which, on the contrary – according to the consumers’ association – aggravates his behaviour, which is completely unjustified and highly uneducational, considering the large following of very young people boasted by the artist. Not only that. For the investigating magistrate, the fact that the Municipality of Sanremo has not taken legal action against the artist, reduces the case of the destruction of the Ariston scenography, and eliminates the elements needed to continue the investigations. In fact, judge Botti writes: “it is underlined that the Mayor of Sanremo, although having made statements to the mass media in which he alludes to damage to the image of the City he represents (i.e. damage objectively greater than that caused to the floral arrangements considered in and of themselves), he does not appear to have taken any initiative in the field civil or criminal against the suspect, showing that Fabbriconi’s conduct was given much less importance than that declared in the wake of the media outcry”.

Now Codacons will present a request to the President of the Court and to the Supreme Court, asking for the provision to be re-examined.
