Outside The Wall exhibition in Padua, ItalyThis weekend, in anticipation of the Italian city of Padua becomes rather bricked up (it plays host to Roger Waters presenting "The Wall" on July 26th), "Outside The Wall", a fascinating sounding exhibition organized by Floydseum, opened, which offers major guest speakers and an unique opportunity to admire objects and memorabilia from around the world.

The Cultural Association Floydseum are behind 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 hosts 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. From the pictures that were kindly sent to us by Floydseum's Alberto Durgante, the show looks pretty much unmissable if you able to get to Italy whilst it is open. There are some wonderful, and incredibly rare, items of memorabilia from posters to band-issue equipment, pictures, prints, records and t-shirts (and much more).

The pictures - more than thirty of them - are arranged in a special gallery on the Brain Damage Facebook page - so if you are yet to pay us a visit on this social media platform, there's no better time! It's a place where we have all sorts of stuff that doesn't appear on the main site, and it's a great place to share your views and pictures.

Included in the exhibition's itinerary are a range of guest speakers. These include David Appleby, official photographer present on set during the shooting of the Alan Parker film, who spoke 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 is also the very eye-catching, famous 3 metre high neon sculpture of the hammers created by Maestro Marco Lodola, one of the greatest exponents of Italian modern art. Pictures of these are included in the gallery on our Facebook page.

The show runs until July 28th and looks well worth a visit. Further information will be found at
