ITALY AT JUNIOR EUROVISION
Italy participated for the first time in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2014, three years after their return to the Eurovision Senior Contest following an absence of 17 years, and last competed in 2019, withdrawing in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The country has reached its best places in the competition with the victory of Vincenzo Cantiello on their debut in 2014 and a brillant third place in 2016 with Fiamma Boccia. In the rest of their participations, they have obtained two seventh places achieved in their last two appearances with Melissa and Marco in 2018 and in 2019 with Marta Viola. They have also earned 11th and 16th worst rankings in 2017 and 2015 respectively.
