It took us a while to recover...and so did some of you probably... Thanks to everybody who helped to make the festival a memorable and great experience: artists, crew and audience alike.

Here is a first selection of photographs of CTM.04 by Micropix. Not to forget another big 'thank you!' to the photographer of these pictures Marco Microbi, who made it to be there in concentration all of the nine nights. A notable performance... Have a look and refresh you memory...
