Friday 02 May 2014
Tickets: £6 ADVANCE or £8 DOOR

A line-up of performances and non-stop acts will be showcased at this unique event paying homage to the best and the worse of Italian culture, from mainstream to underground. Experience Italian extravagance, spaghetti decadence, a Venetian-inspired fashion Carnival, Donatella Botox realness, Pasolinian homages, prescription pill Mona Lisa smiles, Very Dolce Vita, saintly fetishism (rosary jobs included), flying pizzas and much more. Mammas allowed.

For one night only you are invited to experience the tastes of Italy.

A selection of videos, art and live performances from the Archivio Queer Italia project will be on show at the lower floor of the venue. The main room (upper floor) will host SUGO party and DJ Severino, pumping the beats of international hits and Italian ‘camp classics’, from Disco to the present – imagine Lady Gaga and Madonna meeting Raffaella Carrà, Donatella Rettore and Renato Zero… and much (A)more!
