British rockers Pink Floyd are set to launch a multi-sensory exhibition in Milan, Italy later this year (14) featuring iconic memorabilia including their famous flying pig. The show, titled Their Mortal Remains, has been created with the help of former bandmembers David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Roger Waters, and features an audio-visual tour as well as displays. An inflatable pig, like the one seen on the cover of the band's 1977 Animals album, will feature in the exhibit at Milan's La Fabbrica Del Vapore, which opens on 19 September (14) and runs for a month. Curator Aubrey Powell says, "If ever a band lent itself to a major retrospective exhibition it's Pink Floyd. For a curator, selecting what to include from such a treasure trove, is both a dream and a nightmare: however there were elements that just had to be included, for example a 20 metre-wide sculpture of The Wall, five metre high inflatables and of course a flying pig. We shall be aiming for state-of-the-art, visuals and sonic delivery, similar to the experience of attending a Pink Floyd concert, you never know what to expect next." Pink Floyd's original pig hit headlines when it broke free during the 1976 photoshoot and floated into the flight path of a London airport.
