270bis is an Italian folk/rock band, referable to the "rac" area. The name comes from the article of the Italian penal code which punishes subversive associations, that is to say, those associations which aim to subvert the democratic order. The band formed in 1993 in Rome, with Marcello De Angelis, Claudio Scotti, Antonello Patrizi and the drummer Gianluca Rizzante. Later the saxophonist Max Cocciolo was hired to complete the band lineup. Nowadays the band has undergone many lineup changes, with Pierluca Puccipoppi, the new drummer Giampaolo Pelizzaro and the guitarist Maurizio Taloni.
