Pink Floyd members Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason are working on a multi-sensory exhibition which aims to offer a "vast and innovative" insight into their career when it opens in Milan in September.

Masterminded by the band's Italian promoter Fran Tomasi, the "Pink Floyd Exhibition - Their Mortal Remains" will run for a week and cover 2,500 square metres of former factory La Fabbrica Del Vapore.

Curator Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis fame has assembled more than 300 artefacts from Floyd's four-decade history. The installation is being designed by the late Mark Fisher's Stufish company, who have a long history of creating stage sets for the band.

Powell says: "If ever a band lent itself to a major retrospective exhibition, it's Pink Floyd. 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 twenty-metre wide sculpture of the Wall, five-metre high inflatables, and of course, a flying pig.

"We'll be aiming for state-of-the-art visuals and sonic delivery, similar to the experience of attending a Pink Floyd concert; you'll never know what to expect next."

The "Pink Floyd Exhibition - Their Mortal Remains" opens on September 19, with tickets on sale this Thursday (February 27) via PinkFloydExhibition.com.

    Only a week? Seems like the kind of thing that could be moved around like the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial Wall. That would be grand.

    Oh I WISH this was coming to the museum at my home town. During their "summer concert series" in the planetarium, they do Wish You Were Here, Dark Side of the Moon, and The Wall in their entirety to a laser show and an AMAZING picture of the moon at the end of the DSotM album. It just gave me chills thinking about that again.
