A surreal collection supposed to belong to one of the founders of the international horror literature, considered by many as one of the forerunners of science-fiction: Howard Phillips Lovecraft.
A selection of artworks crossing a whole century, from Masters as Duilio Cambellotti, Sergio Ragalzi and Fabrizio Clerici, to young contemporary artists’ pieces, some of them especially made for the occasion.

The gallery turns into an absurd living room pervaded by dreamlike disturbing atmospheres typical of the writer’s imaginary: grotesque landscapes, cosmic horrors from world apart, and besides ancestral creatures lying in the abysses.
