50° PINK FLOYD LIVE IN ITALY, 1968/2018

Pink Floyd are among the most beloved music groups in the world, but there are some countries with which the feeling, even in the words of the artists themselves, has always been particularly strong. Among these also Italy that has had the honor of hosting the live performances of Floyd since 1968, including the Roger Waters' performances of these months.

One of These Days, Pink Floyd Live in Italy 1968/2018

  • Published in News

Pink Floyd are among the most beloved music groups in the world, but there are some countries with which the feeling, even in the words of the artists themselves, has always been particularly strong. Among these also Italy that has had the honor of hosting the live performances of Floyd since 1968 and, considering also the solo performances, until the end of 2018, when Roger Waters will perform in Milan, Bologna, Lucca and Rome.

The Floydseum Cultural Association, in the same style as "The Night Of Wonders", its first book dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the Pink Floyd concert in Venice on July 15th 1989, has decided to launch a new project entitled "ONE OF THESE DAYS, Pink Floyd live in Italy 1968/2018 ", and it does so in the same vein that inspired the first writing, that of sharing and true union between fans.

Our desire is to give voice to all those who love the pink band and who in these decades have been lucky enough to see them live in Italy.

The collection of photographs and written testimonies regarding any live performance by Pink Floyd in Italy (1968-1994) starts immediately.

If you want to make your material available (photos, written testimonials, newspaper articles, memorabilia) you can do it by writing to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Remember, by sending your photos and your writings, you authorize Floydseum to use them freely for their own purposes!

The most beautiful photos and the most engaging writings will become part of our next book and of any exhibition and event related to the publication of the same. Do not miss the opportunity to make your voice heard, send your material and participate in this initiative that wants to celebrate spontaneously and shared the long history of "pink concerts" in Italy.

The Pink Floyd and the magic of the piano

  • Published in News

"I was a little girl when I started playing the piano, that was my toy, but my hands were too small so I could not start taking lessons up to 5 and a half years! I loved spending time with the instrument, composing songs and getting all my applause from my mother. I think when someone encourages you and what you like, you can do it much easier! I've never had a weeklong vacation without a piano, and it was definitely an extension of my body and soul. And it is still so! I can not be happy if I do not have access to a piano for a long time, it's as if you lived without talking!"(AyseDeniz Gökçin)
