"Marvelous remains" is a photographic exhibition which is the result of many years of research carried out in the most secluded corners of churches, disused monasteries, historic houses, private collections and museums. In Noto as in Catania. Works from the past which, having changed the function for which they were intended, freed from their creator, they have nevertheless acquired a surprising vital force. Marvelous remains is an investigation conducted in a universe parallel to ours usually ignored, exiled, confined to another dimension. It is inhabited by unusual life forms which, like dark matter, reveals by interacting with the light coming from black holes, have been captured by the eye of Gaetano Gambino.Ally of time, of waiting, of light and shadow, accustomed to living with derelict and shining vestiges, his flint has revealed the invisible essence, the dark matter that inhabits infinite spaces in infinite times, he showed its breath, its gravitational effects, its luminous trail. His photographs have thus freed the voices, they have redeemed the forms, of "things" that not seen they exist, not understood they mean, excluded they resist. 

Marvelous Remains is a communication project straddling art history, contemporary art and archeology. It was born from the happy collaboration between the Civic Museum of Noto and the Mediterranean Sicily Europe Association.
