Episode 26 - A Glorious Italian Summer EUROVISION Sport Radio Podcast

    • Sports

Something strange happened In Italy this summer. Seen from a football perspective, the Italian team taking home the Euro2020 trophy was already something special. But seen from a wider lens, with successes in athletics, swimming, tennis, cycling, volleyball, and American football, Italy enjoyed an outstanding year. Add in the Nobel Prize in physics and winning the Eurovision Song Contest, and you have an astonishing year for the country.

In this episode of the Eurovision Sport Radio Podcast, we hand the mic to Andrea Pistorio, a sports producer at RAI Radio 1 in Italy. Andrea took part in a recent Eurovision Sport and EBU Academy workshop dedicated to live sports commentary, and what a year to be an Italian sports commentator.

Andrea meets Riccardo Cucchi, one of the most prominent sports journalists at RAI, Sandro Fioravanti, a man whose name is synonymous with Olympic and Paralympic commentary, and Alessandra Sensini, the first Italian athlete to win gold in sailing.
