Mayor of Rome Virginia Raggi handed the Lupa Capitolina Award to the Roman rock band Måneskin after winning Eurovision song contest for Italy this May.

The Roman musicians began their career busking on Via del Corso in the city centre and they recently reached number 1 in the global charts on Spotify with their cover of the song Beggin’.

The ceremony took place in the Rome City hall where the band unexpectedly announced that they would be performing a concert at the Circus Maximus on 9 July 2022, and before receiving the award, the band appeared on the balcony of the mayor’s office to greet their fans gathered below.

Måneskin’s victory at the Italian national music competition San Remo, followed by Eurovision triumph with Zitti e Buoni in May, paved the way to their meteoric rise to global stardom, and recently the glam rockers from Rome broke into the top 10 in the UK charts with I Wanna Be Your Slave, reports Wanted in Rome. The tickets for the Circus Maximus concert can already be purchased.
