For several years Cersaie has been organising a thematic exhibition. After exploring themes of dock redevelopment, transport venues and light/cinema, this year’s initiative  curated by architect Angelo dall’Aglio and Davide Vercelli will discuss the theme of music. “The years from 1976 to 1983 were particularly fertile in terms of music and popular culture,” noted Angelo dall’Aglio. “The coexistence and proliferation of very different genres made those years an inexhaustible source of inspiration.” The exhibition will extend over a space of 700 square metres in the brand new hall 30 and will explore the concept of “music for spaces”, where iconic images from the period will be used in different residential and urban settings.
