This year's festival will be held May 16-18 in Genova and features just about every Italian band of note that is active these days. From the 70s heyday of Italian prog (Osanna, Locanda delle Fate, Alphataurus) to the newest generation (Il Tempio delle Clessidre, Prophexy, Not a Good Sign), this event has it covered.
