POP EYE is born in the ambit of a network called Metamorphosea that includes international festival of big relief that have in common an organic report with the cities that entertain them intervening in that process of metamorpjosis from industrial cities at cities that compare themselves with the challenges of the tourism, with a new livability for the citizens and characterized from a same search about the most contemporary and contaminated shapes of art.
The POP EYE name was chosen because the manifestation wants to be a big eye that looks, examines, filters and reproduces every aspect of the pop reality (above all musical, but not only), with the vital energy, the curiosity, the dinamism and the irony of the other big Popeye, that Braccio di Ferro expression of the exuberance and of the brain of everything that is born from the sea.
