|Forum Song Contest #93|
|< FSC # 92 FSC #94 >|
For the 93rd instalment of FSC, we gather in the city of Romeo and Juliet, our lovely host city of Verona, Italy.
This is due to the victory of Francesca Michielin with Un cuore in due for Italy during the previous edition.
FSC 93 sees a further increase to 34 participants, due to the return of Malaysia, after an absence of one edition.
During this edition, a shocking 3 juries did not submit their votes: Armenia, France and Slovenia; and were subsequently moved to the bottom of the scoreboard. Ironically, France could have finish in 3rd place, had it voted.

Verona is a city on the Adige river in Veneto, northern Italy, with approximately 265,000 inhabitants and one of the seven provincial capitals of the region.

The metropolitan area of Verona covers an area of 1,426 km2 (550.58 sq mi) and has a population of 714,274 inhabitants. It is one of the main tourist destinations in northern Italy, owing to its artistic heritage, several annual fairs, shows, and operas, such as the lyrical season in the Arena, the ancient amphitheatre built by the Romans.
The Venue Edit
The Verona Arena is a Roman amphitheatre in Piazza Bra in Verona, Italy built in the first century. It is still in use today and is internationally famous for the large-scale opera performances given there. It is one of the best preserved ancient structures of its kind.
