At the beginning of June, the band parted ways with their long-time manager Marta Donà. On June 4 Marta shared an Instagram pic from the Eurovision green room, which showed her and the band overcome with emotion as they reacted to Italy’s win.

“Some newspapers here wondered whether an Italian management agency had begun to feel too tight for Måneskin’s international aspirations, and the name of Simon Cowell, the mastermind behind ‘The X-Factor,’ came up as a possible successor.”
