Over 100 works, of which 70 unpublished and never exhibited in Italy, with special sections dedicated to eros, to the legendary character Ranxerox, to Liberatore’s reinterpretation of superheroes and to the artist’s relationship with music, history and poetry –

«We are delighted, as the Pescarabruzzo Foundation, to be able to inaugurate this new space dedicated to the Ninth Art with such an important collection of works by the legendary Andrea Pazienza and with a temporary original by Tanino Liberatore – Both artists have been contaminated, also by truly human experiences experienced, from the fertile experimental and cultural laboratory of Pescara in the 70s.
The exhibitions dedicated to them want to be the very emblem of the place that hosts them: a space that is both a symbol of modernity and industrial archeology, transgressive and alternative, a building site open to the most lively ferments and to the free and powerful expression of the Ninth Art». declares Nicola Mattoscio, President of the Foundation – reads the online note on the official web portal.

The event will begin at 3.00 pm outside the museum complex with the ribbon cutting and will continue inside with a short tour through the permanent and temporary exhibitions. The ceremony will be closed by institutional greetings with the conclusions of the Undersecretary, Vittorio Sgarbi.

At 16:30 the CLAP Museum will open its doors to the public in the presence of Tanino Liberatore, defined by Frank Zappa as “the Michelangelo of comics”, protagonist of the exhibition Of bodies and fragments.

At 17:30, the appointment is with the cartoonists, animators and authors Simone Angelini and Marco Taddei who will talk with Luca Raffaelli, journalist, author and historian of comics, and with Claudio Curcio, President of COMICON (organizer and partner of the Foundation for the temporary exhibition).
