Poste Italiane celebrates Pink Floyd and The Night Of Wonders

Special cancellation stamp during the show for all the "aficionados"

Venice, July 16, 2014

Now that it has officially opened its doors, The Night of Wonders has decided to go with the "Special Effects"!

To celebrate the 25th anniversary, Floydseum announces the formalization by the Poste Italiane of The Night Of Wonders cancellation stamp. The opportunity to apply the cancellation stamp will continue until the end of the show. Yesterday, all visitors, who visited the exhibition, had the great opportunity to apply the special stamp on their floydseum postcard on "live".

For those who were not able to get one? Take a Breath and Smile! The stamped postcard can be purchased at the venue of the exhibition, in Santa Marta or at the Philately Space in Piazzale Roma Foundation Gaffaro 3510, one of the few (six) stores in Italy for "postal" collectors. Passion for Pink Floyd joins always and everywhere, as demonstrated by the beautiful atmosphere breathed during the inauguration where the excited Fran Tomasi, organizer of the concert in Venice in '89, and "the one without whom there would be nothing to celebrate" cut the ribbon, thanking the association and giving appointment to all for another spectacular show organized by him in Milan: "Pink Floyd exhibition Their mortal remains" to be held from September 19 to Steam Factory.

And you? You missed the inauguration of the show and were still wandering around Venice? Do not worry, it's much easier to reach than you think! The Night of Wonders has carved a niche outside the usual tourist flows beyond the call of the big cruise ships, at a place which, interestingly is very close to the place where it was built the floating stage used during the concert '89 before being transported to Piazza San Marco. More precisely, it is located in the Port of Venice at the former Gothic church of Santa Marta, and can be reached by vaporetto stops in Santa Marta (landed, turn right and go straight), and St. Basil's (landed turn left and go straight).

Who knows Venice and is willing to walk, you can get there from rafts, going to St. Basil or from Piazzale Roma along the road that runs along the building of arrival of the people mover.


Une expo sur les Pink Floyd à Santa Marta

  • Published in News

Voici un rdv à ne pas manquer pour tous les passionnés de pop-rock et en particulier pour tous les fans des Pink Floyd. Cette exposition, dans l’espace culturel de l’ancienne église gothique-romane de Santa Marta, est consacrée au légendaire concert que le groupe anglais donna à Venise il y a 25 ans, le 15 juillet 1989, dans la nuit du Redentore. Sur une plateforme qui flottait sur les eaux de la lagune face à la place Saint Marc, sur fond de feux d’artifices et devant une marée de gondoles et d’embarcations, les Pink Floyd donnèrent vie à une performance extraordinaire. Les image de cette nuit magique restent à tout jamais dans les yeux de tous ceux qui étaient présents.

Le parcours de l’exposition, en sept sections, repropose l’aventure vénitienne des Pink Floyd des origines jusqu’au réveil, parfois difficile, de la ville le lendemain du concert et les concerts successifs de David Gilmour. Le tout à travers des souvenirs, des témoignages, des vidéos (dont celui du concert) et beaucoup de photos, cent-cinquante sur les six cents que les organisateurs avaient à disposition. Certaines montrent comment le podium fut transporté sur l’eau ou la stupeur des musiciens devant le spectacle de Venise et du public assis sur les berges. Une expo qui permet, au delà de l’évènement vénitien, la trajectoire d’un groupe mythique et d’en apprécier la modernité.

Fran Tomasi oficially opens the exhibition "The Night of Wonders"

  • Published in News

Over 200 works displayed, tracing the history of the "Venetian Big Concert"

Venice July 12, 2014

It was inaugurated today in the former Church of Santa Marta in Venice, the exhibition dedicated to the Pink Floyd concert on 15 July 1989. And who better than Fran Tomasi could inaugurate "The Night Of Wonders"? Yes he, the creator and organizer of the huge music festival in Venice.

Tomasi, at the time, was one of the most important music promoters, has managed to bring to Italy the biggest rock bands in the world, from Lou Reed to the Rolling Stones, Sting Bruce Springsteen. He is also the man who devised the operation plate for the Olympic stadium in Rome, at the end of the football World Cup. In short, a character with many stories to tell. Although the Pink Floyd concert of 15 July 1989 created huge controversy, Francesco Tomasi, aka Fran, has never repented of having organized this colossal and unique concert that judges, after 25 years, an unrepeatable spectacle.

The exhibition is divided into sections, the tour of Verona in 1989, the origins of the Venetian project with the preparation, the days immediately preceding the concert and the event, up to the concert of Gilmour in 2006. Material comes from professional photographers worked directly in those days, as Guido Harari and Vision Venice Marco Sabbadin and Andrea Pattaro, but also a lot of pictures that come from the fans, as Bob Hassall, who was present on stage. They were selected out of almost 600 shots. A year of work to develop the material to be exhibited.

There are very rare memorabilia, like a poster that was never exposed because the organizers feared that he would attract too many people. Visitors to the exhibition will also see the pictures of the concert projected on a large screen and other video clips of those days on smaller screens. On the walls, there are many examples of famous and not so famous, who attended the concert and wide press coverage at the time, both Italian and foreign. In addition to photographic material, there are works such as the famous Martelli of Marco Lodola, the cloth sculptures of Stefano Bressani and the winners of the online competition created and designed by sculptor painter Grace Marino aka Dadagabem: "The idea was born - Grace Marino points out - for fans and the artists related to Pink Floyd culture, who are many and very good. The selection was made online and were chosen two authors, already well known in the art: Valerio Scarapazzi with Astronomy Domine and Aldo Claudio Medorini with Shine on your Crazy Diamond. To promote young talent has been chosen Giorgia Lembo with Young David Gilmour who is only 19 years." Dadagabem, for the occasion, created a work dedicated to the event titled Crazy Diamond.

In the exhibition, it was displayed "Chit Chat With Oysters" by Adrian Maben, the new unreleased documentary on the band. Fifty-minute black and white film at the studio Europa-Sonor in Paris in December 1971 during the processing to the master of "Echoes" recorded in Pompeii few months earlier.

Alberto Durgante, president of Floydseum thanked Fran Tomasi, Adrian Maben, members of the Floydseum, particularly the vice president Gian Luigi Soldi, all the guests, artists and his staff, reminding that on July 15 there will be the "commemorative cancellation stamp". A stand, just in front of the gates of "The Night Of Wonders", where it will be printed the postmark on the postcards created by Floydseum to be purchased directly at the show, throughout the day.
