San Marino is set to hold ‘Una voce per San Marino’ to select the nation’s representative for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.
‘Una voce per San Marino’ will select the San Marinese representative for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. The national selection has been revealed by the Secretariat of State for Tourism in a calendar of events for the coming year.
No details regarding the format of the selection have been revealed, only that it will select the representative for San Marino at Eurovision 2022. The selection is scheduled to take place in November, indicating the song for Eurovision will be determined at a later date.
San Marino has only once before held a national selection to determine its entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. In 2018 1in360 was used to select both the nation’s representative and song for the competition. It was open to singers from across the globe and culminated in a live final from Bratislava, Slovakia.

San Marino debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2008 alongside Azerbaijan. On their debut, they were represented by Miodio and the song “Complice”, and finished last in their semi-final with just 5 points. San Marino withdrew from the contest before returning again in 2011. Since then the country has participated annually and in 2014 qualified for their first final. The nation’s worst result came in 2017 when Valentina Monetta represented San Marino for the fourth time alongside Jimmie Wilson with “Spirit of the Night.” The pair finished last in their semi-final with just 1 point.
