Sixty years have passed, since the still underage  John Lennon and Paul McCartney met for the first time on July 6th, 1957 in the garden of the St. Peter church in Liverpool Woolton district. A meeting that turned out to be crucial both for the birth of The Beatles and for the European pop culture.

Fondazione Carisbo e Genus Bononiae – Musei nella Città, in collaboration with ONO arte contemporanea, Ginzburg Fine Arts and Kai-Uwe Franz remember this date with the retrospective exhibition “Astrid Kirchherr with the Beatles”, at Palazzo Fava from July 7th to October 9th, 2017.

The exhibition is part of Bologna Welcome Card network. A special discount will be applied to the Card holders. 

Through Kirchherr's  photos, the exhibition features the history of The Beatles early years in Hamburg, the so called “Hamburg Days”. The German photographer, who was a student  at the time and the assistant of the famous photographer Reinhard Wolf,  first met The Beatles in 1960 at  the Kiserkeller  club where the young English bands used to play for little money.
Kirchherr not only took photos of the band when it was still at its beginnings, but also deeply influenced  the style of The Beatles introducing them to the existentialist  art and literature.
