On the anniversary of the death of David Bowie and 40 from the release of the film “The Man Who Fell to Earth”, Mondadori Store celebrates the great artist with a special event and exhibition, entitled “DAVID BOWIE – THE REAL FACE”.
On 10 January 2017 at 6.30 pm in the Events Space on the 3rd floor of the Mondadori Megastore in Piazza Duomo in Milan there will be an exceptional display of the original cast of the face of David Bowie made in 1975 during the shooting of “The Man Who Fell to Earth” (1976): the film in which Bowie wore a number of masks and the cast was used by costume designers to ensure a perfect fit. An extraordinary piece that Red Ronnie, after buying it at Sotheby’s in the 1990s, had autographed by David Bowie during a Roxy Bar interview.
A unique event with the extraordinary participation of Red Ronnie and the screening of extracts from “The Man Who Fell to Earth”, a musical performance by Andy Fluon from the Bluvertigo and contributions from the protagonists of the exclusive exhibition “DAVID BOWIE THE REAL FACE” in which artists Andy Fluon, Giovanna Fra, Bianca Lodola, Marco Lodola and Sergio Pappalettera interpret Bowie each in their own style.
The exhibition, part of the St-Art, artist of the month cycle (the cultural project created and promoted by Mondadori Store in collaboration with Milo Goj’s Art Relation), will run until 5 February before continuing at the Teatro Ariston during the Sanremo Festival.
