We are proud to announce the first Italian RED SPECIAL MEETING. An idea of Marco Giuseppe Di Marco with the help of Brian May Italia (unofficial, no-profit web page dedicated to Brian May and Red Special) and a lot of passionate experts and generous guys. After the English 2011 Red Special Meetup, this very first Italian meeting sums up all you have to know about Dr Brian May and his unique Red Special. it will take place in Rome on 31st March 2012 at the Sciamano Club from 1:30 pm onwards.
We want to point out that this event is organised only because of our pure passion and respect for Brian May and for Queen. This is not an official event, it is self-produced and promoted, there is no profit for us. The ticket to be paid at the entrance is to help cover the costs for booking the venue. What brings us together to make this possible is the total devotion we share to a world made of music, art, rock and science too - in few a words...BRIAN MAY & CO.
The SCIAMANO CLUB, is a live music club in the centre of Rome achievable by car (pay attention to the restricted area), by bus or by subway (Line A, stop at Ottaviano - San Pietro). It is a private club, a membership is requested and we've included it in the price. It has a limited capacity. So we won't accept reservations.
You will be able to see reproductions of the Red Special and Vox and NiCal amps, meet Luca Navacchia, one of the biggest Queen collectors, plus there will a showing of Chiara Tomaini's arts and drawings - she has been drawing Brian for years in wonderful and varied ways (her works have been published in the official web site more than once).
