Verità, eleganza, credibilità: lo stile di vita di VEC magazine

Verità, eleganza, credibilità: lo stile di vita di VEC magazine

Ben strutturata, ironica e autoironica, VEC alterna contenuti leggeri ad altri che lo sono meno, senza cedere mai il passo alla pesantezza, ma accompagnando il lettore in riflessioni stimolanti attraverso saggi, interviste, reportage fotografici, rompicapo e addirittura una doppia pagina in stile album di figurine Panini, ma con gli amari nostrani.

Intervista: Robida, quando la rivista fa davvero comunità

Interview: Robida, when the magazine really creates community

Robida is a strange creature, a somewhat Italian and a little Slovenian magazine with an apparently precarious identity, yet very solid, as are all things on the border. Many souls flow through its pages and all refer to an idea of pure and multidisciplinary culture that ranges from art to philosophy, from literature to society. In this choral interview, its creators tell us about a magazine that was really able to create community, but also give some advice to those who want to approach the world of independent magazines.

Manaròt nel nostro Secret Mag Club di giugno

Manaròt in our Secret Mag Club in June

Manaròt, the magazine we have selected for our June Secret, is a strange creature, who however lets himself be loved. Daughter of a territory that has shaped it, between Trentino and Alto Adige / Südtirol, it brings back in its pages with essential graphics all the cultural contaminations, hybridizations and creative chaos that only border areas know. Nicolò Tabarelli and Davide Gritti tell us about their editorial project, including funny anecdotes and literary forays.

Intervista ad Antonella Pescetto di Orlando

Interview with Antonella Pescetto from Orlando

If we were to make a game and describe Orlando magazine with just one adjective, surely this would be beauty. The pages of this multidisciplinary magazine with an Italian soul exude all the beauty that can be found in a work of art as well as in a good glass of wine, in an unusual reading or in a design suite. We interviewed Antonella to let us better tell her creature.

Yogurt Magazine nel nostro Secret Mag Club di febbraio

Yogurt Magazine in our February Secret Mag Club

Kitsch, grotesque, disturbing, but precisely for this fascinating, to leaf through page after page with voyeuristic obsession. We could briefly describe the latest issue of Yogurt magazine, the Italian contemporary photography magazine that we hosted in our Secret Mag Club in February and which dedicated its second edition to bad taste. We asked Francesco Rombaldi, editor in chief and curator of Yogurt, to tell us something more about this project.

The Bloody Mary: intervista a Jesy Moliterno e Uliana Sgura

The Bloody Mary: interview with Jesy Moliterno and Uliana Sgura

Pink candy cover and a font that in our mind recalls the gothic world, but don't be fooled by the (beautiful) cover, The Bloody Mary is really what you don't expect, giving to the panorama of Italian independent magazines a breath of freshness and experimentation that has perhaps been missing for a while.
