In the field of technology, one year represents a geological era: time here ows at an impossible speed, just like the evolution of machines that in the course of the years have been part of our leisure time. Overlapped layers of silicon and plastic, have formed a ground which is rich of evidence of inestimable sentimental value. Observing from the right point of view, can we actually enjoy a privileged perspective over the inner development of pixels.
With this awareness, Play It Again abandons its reassuring and cozy room and goes to the next level: a journey among almost forgotten relics and virtual realities which are still unexplored.
Leave behind all certainties and abandon yourself to the unpredictable stability and to the eccentric volatility of the universes shaped by pixels.
(Re)bring to light the pleasure to explore, which for too long
has been buried under heaps of civilization.
(Re)capture in those square shapes long forgotten friends, and ght against perfect strangers.
(Re)discover the pleasure of the unknown.
Be prepared for Play It Again: (R)evolution!

Toy Photography expresses the love for ours childhood toys, gives life to objects that don’t have one of their own, tells a story or a feeling with one single shot, and chooses the reality of what you can see directly in the camera rather than post-production.
And so, just one click and you’ll be the one to decide who wins between Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees or stage Cannibal Holocaust using tiny Lego gures. If you’d like to be a child again, but with an adult consciousness, this and more awaits you at the Federico Scargiali’s exhibition.
