CONGRATULATIONS! CCCP – Faithful to the line. 1984 – 2024”, retraces 40 years of history of the group that has transcended the musical phenomenon to delve into the collective social and cultural imagination that has marked their existence and continues to create cultural links between opposing eras and places. The exhibition underlines the explosive force of the lyrics and the almost mythological aura that surrounds the group, retracing their entire history. A narrative that intercepted some of the most characteristic names of the 80s, from Pier Vittorio Tondelli to Luigi Ghirri to Amanda Lear.

Starting from Reggio Emilia, the exhibition projects the visitor into an unlimited human space, connecting from time to time East and West Berlin, the Europe of the frontiers, Beirut, the Arab world, the USSR and satellite countries, China, Hong Kong, the Mongolia, Kabul, Palestine, Israel, Moscow, Leningrad and dizzyingly transforming those places into the outskirts and centers of a single mental empire, in a journey made up of 25 rooms, with installations, site-specific works, unpublished archive photographs, audiovisual supports and stage costumes.
