Pink Floyd Stories and Secrets, Italian Fan Convention
In addition to the official Pink Floyd Exhibition – Their Mortal Remains in Sep-Oct 2014, Italy is also host to an un-official fan convention called Pink Floyd Stories and Secrets on 29-30 March 2014.
Some of the world’s greatest rarities of the group will be exhibited for the first time, featuring hundreds of original historical documents relating to the band.
In the luxurious salons of the Hotel Atlantic Borgaro near Turin, the exhibit will range from the hardest to find posters to vintage handbills, from the tour programs to the most amazing memorabilia up to an accurate selection of the rarest records from the esteemed private collection of the Lunatics, the very active club consisting of five among the most important Pink Floyd historians and collectors (Nino Gatti, Stefano Girolami, Danilo Steffanina, Stefano Mrpinky Tarquini and Riccardo Verani) who in October 2012 published the bestselling book “Pink Floyd Stories and Secrets” published by Giunti Editore.
The exhibition, extending to 600 square meters, will develop through the various chapters of the book and visually trace the history of the band, from its origins until the last tour of 1994. Projections of rare and previously unpublished footage will make the appointment a great multimedia moment.
Some of the exhibits are unique and of the highest rarity value to collectors, never before shown in public.
Adrian Maben, who directed the excellent Pink Floyd Live in Pompeii video, will present in Turin on March 30th two new films about Pink Floyd: one is the documentary “CHIT CHAT WITH OYSTERS”, with 55 minutes of unreleased tracks made during the filming of the movie “Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii”; second is the new version Blu-Ray of the film, with the restored video and multi-channel audio.
