curated by Matteo Bittanti & Domenico Quaranta


ITALIANS DO IT BETTER!! is an alternative Italian Pavilion. This irreverent and slightly subversive retrospective celebrates the work of several artists who have been experimenting and exploiting game-based technologies for more than two decades. Specifically organized for the first edition of NEOLUDICA. ART IS A GAME at the 2011 Venice Biennial, ITALIANS DO IT BETTER!! pays homage to Italian videogame-based art interventions. Visitors will get a chance to see the past, present and, possibly, future of indigenous game-based art, in analog and digital form, on canvas and on screen. This is seriously playful art.
