The Sanremo Giovani World Tour 2023 concert was held on 28 September 2023 at Kalemegdan, at Sava Promenade, organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Italy, the Italian Embassy in Belgrade, the Italian Cultural Institute of Belgrade and the Belgrade Festivals Centre (CEBEF).

The director of the Italian Cultural Institute of Belgrade, Roberto Cincotta, spoke at the beginning of this music event and welcomed everyone. Young Italian artists Martina Beltrami, Fiat 131, Noor and Maninni, as well as special guests from Serbia, actress Jelena Gavrilović and singer Lena Kovačević performed to the delight of the audience.   

Italian singers performed several of their songs, but also popular Italian canzones to which the audience sang along in unison, including Caruso, Nel blu dipinto di blu, Aurora, Malafemmena, Mammaria and L'italiano, which closed the concert as a tribute to the recently deceased Toto Cutugno.

All the artists expressed their pleasure to be in Belgrade and added that they would like to come again. The band was led by the tour's artistic director, Maurizio Filardo. The songs that the singers performed together on stage, as well as the duet by Lena Kovačević and Jelena Gavrilović, who performed Anna Oxa's song Donna con te, were received with the biggest cheers.

Lena Kovačević performed her hit Café with the Italian orchestra, as well as the song Parole, parole, and Jelena Gavrilović revived Darko Kraljić's classic Bez nade.

The Sanremo Giovani World Tour 2023 promotes the tradition of Italian song and presents the young talents of the Italian pop music scene in the best possible way, through the network of diplomatic and consular offices and Italian cultural institutes.
