My name is Gianluca Renoffio and it's my first mail in the list. I'm in the editorial staff of the older and most important Italian progressive magazine: PAPERLATE. With this mail I'd like to present the 2nd Vigevano Prog Festival in Italy. It's organized in Vigevano, a very nice town near Milano, in the wonderful court of its ancient castle. It conceives three days with three bands every day. PROGRAM:

Yesterday evening I saw a Banco performance in Vigevano (for the second Vigevano prog festival). It was a wonderful concert in witch BANCO played live songs like Traccia e. Metamorfosis ... And now a news: the 21 of September BANCO will play in PERUGIA (in a theatre) the whole set of DARWIN after 15 years (with Mauro Pagani as guest star). A real event. I'll go without doubt. And now more info about the festival. It was great. 

I was in the organization (as PAPERLATE Magazine and I had the interview of the bands and a lot of photos. I'll publish in the new Paperlate and in our site.
