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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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. […]

How things change – Cristina Crisci editorial

From time to time it is not that things become easier. In the continuous fluctuation of events, of which often I make reference to when I write these short editorials, I mean precisely referring to the mother of all the certainties: things change. The editorial by Cristina Crisci  They change in continuation and there is no possibility at all to stop them. Not even to the most audacious and fearless is it conceded to dominate any situation infinitely. Therefore, we […]

From world to world, editorial by Cristina Crisci

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 […]

Of art and beauty – Editorial

Under the sign of Alberto Burri. It is because in his artist universe the prints represent a lesser known section, maybe less valued, but not for this are they less fascinating. It is because the entire collection (200 works) will be displayed in its entirety giving life to the third museum dedicated to Burri. It will also be because in this way Città di Castello will become the city with the largest artist’s museum in all the world: those who […]
