“THE LUNATICS” is a unique virtual club, with some of the famous Italian vinyl collectors about Pink Floyd. The club, originally designed in 2001 by Mr. Pinky, aka Stefano Tarquini, for a continuous exchange of infos about vinyls, was established in 2007 with the arrival of friends collectors, like Riccardo Verani, Stefano Girolami, Enrico Nardini, having as a purpose to raise awareness about the world of vinyl to all fans of the band. Later the club was open to other types of collectibles, all important aspects of “culture Floyd”, such as posters, tickets and memorabilia, with the help of the famous collector Danilo Steffanina. The Lunatics have also organized some exhibitions of rare and hard “floydian” official albums, singles, original posters and tickets, proof of the wonders that the world of collecting can offer. The Club met the consensus of all the fans and fanzines and many Italian and foreign musical associations, becoming, at last, “partner” of the first “PINK FLOYD DAY”.
