The area outside the usual tourist flows, is in fact beyond the call of the big cruise ships, which can be seen to arrive and depart from the quay opposite the entrance of the exhibition.

And interesting to remember (when you say coincidences) as, meter meter more or less, it was here that was built floating stage used in concert in 1989, before being transported to Piazza San Marco. The area of the Port of Venice is very charming, rich in industrial archeology that reminds many of the typical themes and environments floydiani, "Wish You Were Here" at all, and can be reached by vaporetto stops in Santa Marta (landed turn to the right and go straight), and San Basilio (landed, turn left and go straight), from walking from Piazzale Roma or rafts along the road that runs along the building of arrival of the people mover.

The exhibition is located in the former Gothic-Romanesque church of Santa Marta, a classic example of how once you knew how to use with wisdom the stone to create a simple yet cozy environments; the churchyard, to welcome the many visitors on Saturday, there was a inflatable pig (guess what color?) 3 meters high and 6 long, to which no one has been able to resist approaching to take a souvenir photo pending the opening the exhibition scheduled for 12 noon.

For the ribbon-cutting ceremony was called "the man without whom there would have been nothing to celebrate" or Fran Tomasi, promoter and organizer, among other things, the Pink Floyd concert in Venice, 1989; visibly moved by this unexpected tribute to his great masterpiece 25 years ago, Tomasi thanked Floydseum and made ​​an appointment at all for his show "Pink Floyd exhibition, Their mortal remains" to be held from 19 September to the Factory steam Milan.
