Pink Floyd will stage a multi-sensory exhibition in Milan, Italy this September.

The exhibition, named 'Their Mortal Remains', will open to the public for a four-week period on September 19 at Milan's La Fabbrica Del Vapore. Tickets for the exhibition will go on sale this Thursday, February 27.

Acting as a major retrospective on the influential band's career, organiser of the exhibition Fran Tomasi promises to take visitors on a "surreal, multi-sensory journey through Pink Floyd’s extraordinary worlds, chronicling the music and art of Pink Floyd, from their debut album 'The Piper At The Gates of Dawn' to the present." Tomasi, the band's Italian promoter, claims to have the full backing and involvement of Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason.

Aubrey Powell, curator of the exhibition and partner of the late Storm Thorgerson who designed many of Pink Floy'd album artworks, said: "If ever a band lent itself to a major retrospective exhibition it’s Pink Floyd. For a curator, selecting what to include from such a treasure trove, is both a dream and a nightmare: however there were elements that just had to be included, for example a 20 metre-wide sculpture of The Wall, five metre high inflatables, and, of course, a flying pig. We shall be aiming for state-of-the-art, visuals and sonic delivery, similar to the experience of attending a Pink Floyd concert, you never know what to expect next."

Meanwhile, Nick Mason recently revealed that he would be interested in a Pink Floyd reunion. Mason spoke out following rumours that the prog band's classic line-up would perform at the London 2012 Closing Ceremony. Speaking to NME at the time Mason said he was "ready to go" if the group's classic line-up decided to play together again
