16 Mar-6 July 2008. The Magnani Rocca Foundation of Mamiano di Traversetolo, near Parma, pays a colourful tribute to Andy Warhol (1928-1987), with 140 works from the mid 1950s to the 1980s. This exhibition evokes the atmosphere of the Factory, an artistic laboratory created by Warhol in the 1960s in New York, where he produced paintings, films, exhibitions and events. The Factory was a cross-roads of arts, homosexuality and drugs. Entering the Factory was a great opportunity for young people from the slums to mix with intellectuals, women from the jet set and beautiful, young aristocrats, such as Edie Sedgwick, who interpreted the film Vinyl and died of drugs at the age of 28. On show are some examples of borders drawn and hand painted by Warhol, which belong to his early works, such as the series In the Bottom of My Garden (1955), A Gold Book (1957) and Wild Raspberries (1959). The exhibition continues with his famous prints, among others Marilyn Monroe (1967), Paloma Picasso (1975), the cans of Campbell
