Amici di Maria De Filippi

Created by Maria De Filippi, the show began in 2001 and has since aired annually. The show is produced by Fascino P.G.T. s.r.l. and is broadcast on Canale 5. 

Once called "Saranno Famosi" in honor of the 1980 namesake movie, it's a talent show revolving around dancing and singing abilities.
