PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI is a very eclectic and exuberant band with a distinctive style that combines the powerful expression of rock, progressive and classical music into one fascinating entity. Formed in 1971 and celebrating its live debut in the same year opening for Yes in Milano, the band quickly gained a prominent place on the international scene by making it to the Billboard charts (for 1973’s ‘Photos Of Ghosts’), winning a Gold record in Japan while constantly ruling the charts in their home country up until today. Recently, PFM was honoured with position #50 in the “UK Classic Rock Hall of Fame” of the 100 most important artists in the world.
