The billboard of the 2012 Gubbio No Borders, prepared by the festival's artistic director Luigi Filippini, contains 11 performances.

The rhythm of a pain". Starting at 21:30 at the Cloister of San Pietro.

Surely one of the most anticipated concerts of the event will be that of Wednesday, July 22nd, 2012 when, from 21:30 and always at the Cloister of S.
