The Pugliese Pop Culture Collection

March 15 & 16, 2008
Palms Casino Resort
Las Vegas, Nevada

The Pugliese Collection may well be the finest collection focusing on 20th Century pop culture ever privately assembled. Approximately eight hundred and fifty of the most extraordinary objects imaginable from the worlds of motion pictures, popular music, magic, television and politics were gathered over several decades by Anthony Pugliese, a man who might well be described as a true visionary. Indeed, Mr. Pugliese is sharing his wonderful Collection with the rest of the world as he shifts his interests towards the creation of Destiny, the nation's largest eco-sustainable community currently being sensitively created in central Florida.  A portion of the proceeds from the remarkable event are earmarked for the Audubon Society, long known for its important environmental work.


A massive (over 3 pounds) and beautifully-designed book documenting the nearly 1,000 lots in this extraordinary collection is available in a very limited edition. Click here to securely order your copy of this one-of-a-kind catalogue.
