EDIZIONI 1956 – 1959 (I primi anni)

Decade introduction 1956 – 1959: Although Marcel Bezençon is credited with creating the Eurovision Song Contest, much of the format that we recognise today came from the British actor Michael Brennan, who in March, 1954 came up with the idea of a song contest which featured regional juries and a scoreboard. This idea eventually became the Festival Of British Popular Songs, which was first screened on the 7th May, 1956.

Seven countries took part in the first edition, Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, France, Luxembourg and Italy, with each country presenting two songs.
