Flippers is an unpublished set of photographs taken in 1977 inside an abandoned and decaying pinball machine assembly factory.
It is the project with which Olivo Barbieri made his debut in 1978 in an exhibition held at the Municipal Gallery of Modena, with a text by Franco Vaccari, and at the Diaframma in Milan and subsequently presented at major personal and collective shows.
