Returning Teams and Competitors

Many of the Italian teams featured in Campanile Sera returned to participate in the Jeux Sans Frontieres programme which would begin three years later. Teams from Marostica and Acqui-Terme would participate in the 1974 series, and ironically both notched up a win in their respective International Heats. In that instance - and with a sense of déjà vu - Marostica once again prevented Acqui-Terme progressing any further in that competition, when they amassed a higher tally of points in winning their heat (44 to Acqui-Terme's 40) and therefore went on to represent Italy in the International Final!

Additional Information

By virtue of their winning four consecutive competitions including this final programme in the series, Marostica are distinguished by being the only team in the history of Campanile Sera never to have been beaten.

The Marostica team's winning run at the end of the series meant that the town of Acqui Terme, the next northern Italian team on the roster, were unable to take part.
