EXCUSE ME, WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR NEW YEARS EVE?

The summer is ending and a year has gone by. Oh no, my dear Stefano Rota and Stefano Righi (otherwise known as the Musical duo of the Righeria), your summer song from the 80s which torments our conversations from the end of August to the end of September, is a huge lie. Why? To make it to the end of the year we are still missing three months and two numbers of The Mag, including the one you are reading. […]

SUMMER IS MAGIC

It’s summer, babe. And with summer, beauty goes on the front cover. Oh gosh, it’s not like the other covers of The Mag didn’t focus on beauty (don’t be mad at us Monica Bellucci and Valentina Lodovini, just to mention a couple who have ended up on the cover), it’s just that this time, we chose the perfect combo: sea, umbrellas and beauty. After all, we have to sell! Ah no, we are a free press. So, don’t hold it […]

Casting the Castle - 2018

Casting the Castle – Civitella Ranieri Foundation

Last Saturday, June 30th, the Civitella Ranieri Foundation opened their regal space to the public, rich with history and, for this occasion, enhanced with activities directed towards giving back an unedited image. The 11th century castle was in fact, the location for Casting the Castle, a project that was conceived and developed by Saverio Verini, born out of the desire to sensitise the view and perception of the public about this small heritage of works, offering at the same time […]

IMMERSED IN GREEN A VILLA OF MATERIALS AND DESIGN

Giulio and Vale’s house  is in the hills of Perugia, in a panoramic location and convenient for them. They have been living here since November, after a long time of searching first and then working on it. New, they bought it without internal divisions, because they wanted to decide and design their space, according to their needs. Before furnishing the small villa, they visited the Salone del Mobile in Milan, a reference point for furnishing and design, which allowed them […]

Alessandro Borghese sorridente mentre cucina

Alessandro Borghese

Alessandro Borghese is the celebrity of the moment. Or rather, the chef of the moment. Likeable face, dark curls, glasses and obligatory smile. His skill and pleasant nature have, in no time at all, conquered the world of social network and now the television with programs “Alessandro Borghese 4 Ristoranti” and “Kitchen Sound” in which on Sky One HD, he presents a recipe in five minutes. In the past weeks Borghese and his troop came to Umbria for 4 Ristoranti […]

HERE I AM

I see my first editorial a little like this. A semi dark room. Many chairs around my chair. Every place is taken. The light is on me. And I say, “Hi, I’m Andrea”. And you all “Hi Andrea”. This to say that from today on I will feel a little more observed than usual, that I will tell of myself and I will tell stories, of people and much more. In other words, we will read each other often. Because […]

Cristina Crisci - the Mag

It all makes sense

When I arrived in June 2013, The Mag had just been born. I didn’t know what I would have done and what direction we would have taken: it was about a new challenge for everyone. From that day we published more than 30 numbers. After 5 years I can say that it has been an important experience: fun moments, others difficult. I’ve met hundreds and hundreds of people, told interesting stories, thanks to the vocation of this magazine: give value […]

Underground inspirations

Burridocumenta is a new word that adds a multimedia piece to the already wide and unique museum of the master’s art in Città di Castello: an entire wing with hundreds and hundreds of images, information, photographs and interesting facts, on touch screens and interactive media. This is the third cover we dedicate to Burri in three years, in the wake of a very long centennial which now opens a virtual dimension, allowing visitors, but also students, to truly immerse themselves […]

SHADES OF WHITE – Our Home

The idea was to have a house on two levels, but able to be used as if it were only one. At a stone’s throw from the city walls, in the beginning the liveable spaces were developed on one floor, where a living area was created, while the attic which was a loft, changed its look, becoming a bedroom. All of it was patterned after an idea of continuity in shapes, materials and colors, where white respects them all, diminishing […]

New Looks

There are so very many things which I would like to speak about here, to introduce this number, that I don’t know from where and who to start. Let’s begin with what’s new! One day I went into a building -with a beautiful entrance among other things – of the city center in Città di Castello to meet a group of architects: they wanted to speak with me about one of their ideas. A pleasant conversation among women about transversal […]

Kate Tempest – EATING CHAOS

Let them eat caos: it is a disc, it is a poem, a poem to read out loud, as the author asks at the beginning of the book. Kate Tempest and her band have brought their work around all over the world, including the triumphal concerts at the latest Glastonbury festival and the Primavera Sound in Barcelona. And yet it all started with Civitella Ranieri, from our area, much earlier than Glastonbury and Barcellona: it is there that in 2015, […]

Our Home – ELEGANT HARMONY

The strong point of this place is the view of the landscape, and to make sure that it is the true protagonist of the house, thanks to the large openings to the outdoors, the owners wanted essential and minimal furnishings to which they matched some elements of traditional furniture, with colors that are in harmony with the tone of the structure of the house. To make the country house more contemporary with its traditional structure in stones and wood beams, […]

Cristina Crisci - the Mag

BACK TO 80’S

When the December/January number arrives I always feel a strong call to chart out an evaluation of what has been up until now, of what will be and of what I would like to happen. Among other things the editorial staff tell me this is also the number that marks our five years of life. They seem few. In reality they are many. But I don’t want to do evaluation because then I become sad and my idea had been, […]

Fabio Mariacci – GEOMETRIC INSTINCT

From Fabio Mariacci’s study you can see rolling Umbrian hills, but on his paintings you won’t find a trace of our landscapes; geometry fills his paintings with decisive colors and futurist brush strokes. By Claudia Belli photo Molotovstudio Convinced self-taught and a protagonist for many years in the Tiber Valley artistic community, Fabio Mariacci discovered his passion for art at a very early age and since then he has not stopped experimenting. He paints colors and shapes, trying to reproduce […]

DISCOVER NUVOLO

GIORGIO ASCANI, NUVOLO, A STORY The year is 1944, we are in full Resistance. Name of the battle by partisan: Nuvolo, because he would appear and disappear in the Umbrian hills. He was unpredictable.

Looking beyond

Under the sky of this beginning of autumn which, in our parts is tinged with blue, we look beyond the confines of time and distance to discover and rediscover Nuvolo, artist from Città di Castello. He died in 2008, leaving a very rich archive of works, realized with a style of pure avant-guard which has nothing to envy of the best present-day experimenters. Twenty some of his works are exhibited in New York until January, in the Di Donna Gallery […]

The White House

Up until a short time ago, Silvia and Riccardo’s apartment was an 80’s style car showroom. Thanks to the open layout of the old building, the space was divided into the most functional and interesting way possible. The ceilings have all been lowered to diminish the height of the commercial space and the rooms are well-lit by the large windows, made from scratch and shaded by automatic awnings in aluminum. by Lucia Fiorucci / style Meozzi Mobili They both love […]

Cristina Crisci editorial – And they call it summer

Summer is when I just can’t stop marveling over a field of golden grains, at the expanse of sunflowers, at nature’s green overload, at the air that has turned warm, at the smell of the asphalt when it rains, at the sunsets, at the sun when it goes down behind the hills and perfectly redesigns the borders, at times harshly others softly. By Cristina Crisci One doesn’t get used to beauty, thankfully, and to me it seems new every time. […]

On the edge of ethics – Brunello Cucinelli

Damiano Zigrino – MY THEATRE BETWEEN REALITY AND FANTASY

The stage is a little bit like the second home of Damiano Zigrino, he lives it in the foreground as singer of the Jolebalalla and behind the scenes which are backgrounds to the stories of his puppets. But as for the music so is for the theatre of puppets, there is a long preparation before the art can go on stage; from the writing of the texts to the creation of the small and large characters in wood and foam […]

Good-bye forever, or maybe just good-bye is enough. The decision is one: leave, then we will see. Editorial by Cristina Crisci Worst case, we will go back home. Instead no. Every year the number of people who leave to go abroad is growing. The reason? Italy is a country in crisis which does not offer jobs but the desire as well to run towards a place where the word meritocracy has a meaning, where the leadership is a better managing […]
