History

The Eurovision Song Contest of 1964 in Copenhagen saw an unrivaled first Italian victory with a song performed by the only 16-year-old Gigliola Cinquetti who had already won the Italian San Remo Festival with her entry Non Ho l’Età. Sweden did not participate because of a boycott by singers.
A political protest occurred after the Swiss entry: a man trespassed onto the stage holding a banner that read “Boycott Franco & Salazar”. Whilst this was going on, television viewers were shown a shot of the scoreboard; once the man was removed the contest went on.
Italy’s win was their first. Germany, Portugal, Switzerland, and Yugoslavia each scored nul points for the first time. Portugal was the first country to score no points on their debut. The Netherlands became the first country to send a singer of non-European ancestry, Anneke Grönloh was of Indonesian descent.
As with the 1956 contest, no video recording of the actual contest performance is known to survive.Reports say that this is because there was a fire at the studios of DR, the Danish broadcaster, in the 1970s.
