As of today, the new RAI management has not yet decided whether the Prix will continue to exist or disappear after its glorious (albeit tumultuous) 68 years. In fact, RAI’s top executives have not yet decided whether Italy Prix 2016 will be held in its traditional period of September and has not even decided the host city. So far, RAI top echelons have only replaced Paolo Morawski as the Prix’s General Secretary with Vittorio Argento, both respected journalists and RAI executives. Over the past seven years, Turin and mayor Piero Fassino have hosted the Prix, which Fassino seems to want to continue. Apparently, there are other undisclosed clashes within RAI, to the point of sacrificing the Prix.
