The exhibition can be visited at the Sala delle Arti of the Reggia, and will be an opportunity to reflect on video games and their form. In fact, they present themselves as a perfect mix of architecture, painting, sculpture, music, performing arts, poetry, cinema and comics. Very different art forms, which coexist in the meta worlds made by the developers and loved and populated by the players.
