QUEEN VINYLS AND MEMORABILIA EXHIBITION

QueenItalia, the italian Queen community, proudly set up a Queen exhibition during the traditional VINILMANIA, one of the most famous vinyls and collectors items fair, in Europe.

Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 May 2008 - from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm - at the "Parco Esposizioni" in Novegro, Milan (next to Linate airport).

Tickets for VINILMANIA are 8,00 euros - Queen's exhibition is inside.

An unique chance to be in front of the rarest Queen records in the world, such as rare colored vinyls from S. America, acetates, test pressing and obscure picture sleeves from all the globe; from 70s to 90s. And not only vinyls...

You'll see also a lot of memorabilia, signed items, flyers and posters. All pieces come from private collections of some of the most famous Italian Queen collectors:

***Karim Navarrini (longtime serious Queen records collector, owner of some unique and impossible to find items),
***Luca Navacchia (during the years, he specialized in SIGNED ITEMS, from early days to Innuendo) and
***Ferdinando Frega (well known italian Queen collector - He had co-operations with Record Collector, RaRo! and you can read his name in "Killer Queen, Genesis Limited Edition" book credits - Take a look at his webiste http://www.queenmuseum.com and you'll see...)

Plus some old cuttings and scrapbooks, coming from Alessandro Cannarozzo (YES, IT'S ME!) and his website http://www.queencuttings.com
QueenItalia webmaster too, he's the promoter of this Queen event in Italy.

Some of the items will be shown in the public for the very first time and it's an unique chance for Queen fan and record collectors to have a look at these amazing collections.

If you need more info, contact me ;)

Rock on!

Looks like a very interesting event, well done, Ale. Maybe there will be some photos for us non-Italians :)
