Photo in Game! A story by 18 Italian photographers presents at the Reggia di Venaria the world of street games and outdoor entertainment seen through the lens of 18 famous Italian photographers who document the transformation of the many ways of playing and having fun from the second post-war period to birth of the modern entertainment industry.

Conceived by Giangavino Pazzola, curator of CAMERA - Italian Center for Photography in Turin who for the occasion collaborates with the Reggia di Venaria , the exhibition includes over 120 color and black and white photographs that have people of all ages as their subject intent on practicing various recreational activities, as well as habits, professions and places that have outlined a new relationship of people with the concept of free time.
