Who of us does not remember his or her favorite toy as a child? All children have one. Rich or poor, every child has a favorite toy for which he or she develops a special affection. How can I forget that doll with a broken eye? It was ugly, yet irreplaceable to me. And it was undoubtedly my favorite.
Gabriele Galimberti, in his journey around the world, explores this phenomenon with delicate irony and affectionate attention. The idea came by chance while he was portraying a Tuscan child and it later became a photographic series which traces, in an almost obsessive way, the world of childhood: the toy stories of nowadays (Arianna Rinaldo).
