"Outside The Wall" exhibition in Padua, Italy next month Print E-mail

Outside The Wall exhibition in Padua, ItalyIn July this year, the Italian city of Padua becomes rather bricked up; it plays host to Roger Waters presenting "The Wall" on July 26th, and between July 13th - 28th there is "Outside The Wall", a fascinating sounding exhibition organized by Floydseum, which offers major guest speakers and an unique opportunity to admire objects and memorabilia from around the world.

The Cultural Association Floydseum, fresh from the great success of the Pink Floyd Day 2 held in Brescia on April 27th, engages in a new initiative that promises to be another success: the organization of the largest exhibition dedicated to "Pink Floyd The Wall" ever realized until now. The Hall of the Cultural Center Agora Altinate/San Gaetano in Padova will host the first exhibition of some of the most valuable and rare pieces from the private collections of fans around the world related to the discography, film and live shows of the Wall project.

Of equal, or possibly greater interest, are the range of guest speakers. These include David Appleby, official photographer present on set during the shooting of the Alan Parker film, who will speak on July 13th for the opening of the Exhibition. Other speakers will be Brain Damage's very own Glenn Povey, well-known author of key Floyd books such as Echoes, and Gio Alajmo, renowned Italian journalist and music critic. For the first time in Italy, 47 original photos taken by Appleby will be on display, alongside 20 rare original prints made available by Gerald Scarfe, who has also created the poster for "Outside the Wall". Scarfe is due to appear at the exhibition on the morning of July 26th. Conferences and meetings with experts of the group, concerts (Wit Matrix cover band) and demonstrations of the Virtual Museum in 3D, the flagship of the Association Floydseum that allows the visitor to navigate to a spectacular world, are scheduled during the opening of "Outside The Wall".

In the exhibition space there will also be the famous 3 metre high neon sculpture of the hammers created by Maestro Marco Lodola, one of the greatest exponents of Italian modern art.

Further information will be found at Floydseum.org.
