“David Bowie”

Wall of Sound Gallery
Ranked #19 of 63 things to do in Alba
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 September 2016

Hubby and I saw the large poster of David Bowie in Alba's main square. We dropped by the gallery praying they would be open, as it was a Monday. Fortunately for us, the museum was closed, but there were people inside and Guido, the director? , gladly let us in especially as we were from the US. The exhibit features the photographs of Mashayoshi Sukita and spans over 40 years of David Bowies life. Go now as the exhibit ends September 10. Thanks again Guido for making my day!

We had been really looking to going to the gallery ever since we booked our visit to Alba.
When we got there it was closed with a sign on the door in Italian which we gathered meant it was closed to get ready for the next exhibition.
Very disappointed.

We visited Wall of Sound during their recent showing of Frank Stefanko photos of Bruce Springsteen. We got to meet the owner, Guido, the gallery manager, Cristina. Guido and Cristina couldn't have been nicer and the gallery is a great space for seeing rock photos by Guido or others. Go there if you happen to be in Alba or if his current show is of interest to you.

A huge poster featuring a young Bruce Springsteen dominated Alba's central square, A visit to the local tourist office helped out with the address, which was within walking distance. On show was an interesting selection of original early Springsteen and the E Street Band photo's, and some assorted other R&R heroes, nicely put together. A nice contrast with the historical sights!

We were exploring the town of Alba in Barolo country when we saw an oversized postcard advertising the Wall of Sound Gallery. Curious, we located the address on our map and found the gallery tucked away outside the main tourist area. They were currently setting up a new exhibit and would not be ready to show until the afternoon but the owner and renowned photographer, Guido Harari encouraged us to come back. My husband, being a huge music lover needed no further encouragement. This turned out to be one of the two highlights of our Alba stay, the other being the Barolo wine tour. The gallery is small but the photographs by him and other photographers is bigger than life!! Some of Guido's pictures are famous and we were ecstatic to be able to meet the artist behind the lens. Guido answered all of our questions and shared his stories and insights. We found him to be generous of his time, magnanimous and so humble of his talent!!! Music lover or not, we highly recommend a visit to his gallery while in Alba!!!
