Giorgio will participate in the semi-final round on March 21st at the Poliorama Theatre of Barcelona, where only 8 will go on to the big final, expected to take place May 14th in Madrid. .

All are encouraged to show support for Giorgio in the semi-final round at the Poliorama Theater (Rambla dels Estudis, 115). Tickets for the event will be available soon for 10 euros.
