Playing The Game presents “Super Mario: jumping between media” by Milo Fazzini

How would the world of Super Mario looks like if it wasn’t “only” the famous video game we know? This exhibition shows Mario’s world declined to two alternative languages: comics and animation. The exhibition, through a serie of illustrations, presented a new reinterpretation of the famous video game franchise as movie and comics strips.
