Mondadori Media is now an even greater key player of the creator economy and influencer marketing thanks to its acquisition of Power from the Human Vs. Machine group.

The intention is to create engaging contents in line with the most recent trends and languages to put sponsor brands in touch with the public of reference and to create value,” stated Alessandra Rigolio, CEO of Power Talent Agency.

THE AGENCY’S ROSTER

Alongside Ludovica, an ever-growing team made up of professionals capable of putting their talent at the service of initiatives in various segments to reach a total of 5 million followers and 12 million views each month with their projects: from Diletta Begali, a youtuber known for her storytimes in which she talks about travelling and her daily life, to Camilla Mangiapelo, who – following her début on TV – now shares her passion for make-up, skincare and fitness on the social networks, not to mention Giulia Bellu, actress from the age of 5 and current TikTok star, or even Miriam Candurro, a face of the popular TV series “Un posto al Sole” [A spot under the Sun].

Zenzero Talent Agency: new top food creators and innovative, creative and valuable branded content projects coming soon

The food talent agency pursues its development with original formats to bring creativity at the service of brands

One month after its launch, Zenzero, the talent agency of top Italian food creators, has already raised great interest among the influencer marketing segment thanks to a roster of quality talents and to the absolutely important numbers achieved through a one of a kind, dynamic and innovative formula.

Based on the experience of Giallozafferano, the leading Italian food media brand, One Shot Agency and five top food creators of the Italian digital scene – Daniele Rossi, Cooker Girl, Diletta Secco, Rosy Chin and Luisa Orizio – Zenzero now boasts over 25 million total followers, 450 million video views and 25 million interactions each month thanks to its growing hub of creators.

Its winning formula consists in working directly with the best food talents and in relying on their creativity for projects aimed at addressing brands’ increasingly stronger need to intercept the passions, values and new languages of the Z Generation.

A first month full of initiatives
Zenzero is actively working on more than 70 new project opportunities with the brands. Moreover, the agency has been participating in the most important events of the industry, at which Zenzero’s young faces and fresh and original spirit have already raised great interest within the first few weeks.
This from UPA’s Influencer Marketing to the Digital Innovation Days, From Influence Day to the IAB Forum, and all the way up to Largo Consumo’s and WomenX impact’s “2023 Best Insignia” event. The new agency’s talents were the protagonists of these events, at which they revealed their stories, experiences and ingredients used to successfully conquer the young generations.

Next? The important partnership involving the co-founder of the Daniele Rossi Agency and the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Japan. On December 2, the Tuscan chef renowned for his modern and refined way of interpreting traditional culinary specialities will be the Executive Chef at the Gala Dinner planned in Tokyo for the association’s 50th anniversary. This one of a kind setting filled with illustrious guests and prominent personalities will allow the chef to make a unique experience in the area and to learn more about the Japanese culture by experimenting with new flavours, techniques and ingredients. The chef will share these culinary encounters in detail with the community via his social profiles.

Such high-impact initiatives demonstrate the new agency’s strength and how it’s able to enhance both the originality and distinctive positioning of each individual talent and the vastness of the food world through transversal projects – achieved also thanks to its strong partnership with Giallozafferano and to its synergy with Mediamond – which are deemed to make its various facets, popularity and lifestyles stand out.

Last night, Zenzero decided to share such vibrant beginning with “Spice Up Your Night”, an exclusive evening organised in the setting of the new Tripstillery club in the heart of Milan. The event was the first time the new agency was able to gather its numerous talents to celebrate together with brands, agencies and media centres.

Zenzero just keeps on going. Young talents, including international ones, of the food world capable of triggering a passion for cooking, even among the Z Generation – which represents an increasingly growing target of the industry – were recently added to the agency’s roster of new creators.

Among the new faces, there is Evasfoodaddiction’s Eva Andrini, a young economics and management student who conquered thousands of followers with her simplicity and passion in a very short time, and the seventeen-year-old Aisha Ben Thabet, known by all as The Avokiddo. Aisha learned how to cook through a video game, has been making her way around the kitchen since she was 5 and was a participant of Junior Masterchef.
There is also the young talent of Cooking With Bello, who went from being a dancer to a successful food creator. His passion for cooking was transmitted to him by both his mother and grandmother, a passion he combined with his technical skills to turn iconic Italian recipes into fun and ironic videos. Last but not least, there is Ivana Ester Marr, from “Studenti ai fornelli” (Students in the Kitchen), a creative, entrepreneurial talent always in search of the perfect ingredient.

Grazia presents its special issue “We love Kate” dedicated to the Princess of Wales

Grazia, the magazine edited by Silvia Grilli, presents its special edition “We love Kate” dedicated to the Princess of Wales Kate Middleton.

An extraordinary issue, available at the news-stands and on the app, that talks about how the wife of Prince William, the future heir to the British throne, has become a new icon also for Italian women and explains the history and secrets of her style that is an inspiration to many women.

“Twenty-five years after the death of Lady Di, the world has a new Princess of Wales: Kate Middleton. We had identified ourselves with Diana Spencer, with her tears, the betrayals she suffered, her new loves, her humanity, even her glamour that was a bit daring during the last years. Now we see Middleton without any of the drama that overwhelmed us when following the life of Lady D. We love the solidity she demonstrates, her devotion to a role of sovereign that will be hers. In her we see Her Majesty Elizabeth as well as Diana, a royal ambassador that performs her tasks without drama, rather with a smile that is a declaration of relaxation”, says the editor, Silvia Grilli, in her editorial. “This issue of Grazia is about Kate, about her personality and the clothes she wears in the same way as the recently departed Queen: as instruments of recognition and international diplomacy. This issue is for her because, in this age of social media, Kate has remained the last icon who still lets us dream”, concludes the editor.

Born to a family without noble roots, the Princess of Wales did not become the wife to the future King of Great Britain by chance. Her Italian biographer Federica Brunini explains in the pages of the special issue of Grazia why Kate, due to her similarity with the Queen Elizabeth II, is already considered the “rock” of the monarchy of the future.

Kate entered into the hearts of British and Italians also due her style choices: elegant, environmental, never over the top.
The look of Prince William’s wife inspires fashion, as explained in the pages of this issue of Grazia, as she has selected and reinterpreted clothing items that have become her distinctive trait and that the future Queen Consort is able to enhance, softening even the boldest looks. This issue also includes masterpieces of fine jewellery and costume jewellery inspired by the lines and colours that the Princess of Wales loves, as well as four of her iconic looks as well as secrets to a royal beauty look like hers.

The pages of Grazia also cover other members of the royal family. From “the environmentalist” King Charles III who inherited the throne from Elizabeth II, one of the worlds most well-loved sovereigns. Today many people are asking what type of monarch this man, who has little time to make himself loved by a country in crisis, will be. Then there is the different and free charm of Meghan Markle, the wife of Harry of Sussex, who has always fought, following her heart. Someone who has met her explains why she will also return to the limelight of the court.

One of Netflix’s most famous cult series is dedicated to the closely followed affairs of the royal family, The Crown, which returns on 9 November with a new season dedicated to the most difficult years of Elizabeth II’s reign. The issue also includes interviews with two of its stars. The actor Dominic West, who interprets the current English sovereign, explains to Grazia how he experienced the fragility of the prince who found his own fairy tale to be restrictive. Then the actress Olivia Williams explains to the readers of the magazine how she was transformed into Camilla Parker Bowles, the woman who fought to stay by the side of the man she loved.

This issue of Grazia also includes an article dedicated to all the actresses who have played the role of Queen Elizabeth and talk about this very difficult role: from Helen Mirren, who was the first to interpret the Queen at the cinema, winning an Oscar, to the young and dreamy version of Claire Foy, the carefree interpretation by Sarah Gadon and the more-mature version by Olivia Colman.

Icon launches its “Let me dream” issue, available on newsstands with four different cover stories

The website expands its offer with the new Watches channel

Icon, the Mondadori Group’s men’s fashion and lifestyle brand, launches its “Let me dream” issue, dedicated to the need for and courage to keep on dreaming.

The magazine, edited by Andrea Tenerani, has chosen ​four stars to be on the cover​ of this special issue: four stories from the world of sport, cinema and fashion, which Icon​​​ wants to use to remind its readers to never stop pursuing their dreams.

It starts with​Milanese footballer, Sandro Tonali, who achieved his childhood dreams: he wanted to be a footballer, play in Serie A, wear the​Milan jersey and win the championship. “The next goal is to cement what we did last year, which is the most difficult thing: we all have to keep focused on our dream,” he shared in an exclusive interview with Icon.

Actor Paul Wesley, who played the young Captain Kirk in the series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds last year, has become one of the most beloved faces on the small screen thanks to the global success of The Vampire Diaries​ Paul also fulfilled his dream of becoming a director.

The stars of the issue’s other two cover stories, Oleg​ ​Zagorodnii and Jon Kortajarena, are two supermodels (the former Ukrainian, the latter Spanish) who, thanks to their talent and determination, have been able to achieve their dream of becoming actors.

Among the stories in the issue is that of Italian Umberto Guidoni, the first European to board the International Space Station, who tells Icon how his dream of being an astronaut as a child came true.

The theme of dreams also acts as the common thread in the Destination Future section, where readers will find names like Ester Viola and Saturnino.

The “Let me dream” issue – whose contents will also be expanded upon and gone into in depth on Icon’s website and on the brand’s social media channels – is also a place for fashion, which has always been at the heart of the Icon story, with an exclusive feature, along with an interview with the young Milanese actor, Matteo Oscar Giuggioli.

Fashion will be celebrated with a private event, created in collaboration with Fay, in which a special feature in this issue is dedicated. An exclusive evening that will take place in Rome on 27 October, during which the new issue of Icon will be presented, with special guest actor Paul Wesley, the face of one of the covers of “Let me dream”.

The new Watches channel

This month Icon is also launching another new feature: starting this month, the website will be enhanced by the new Watches channel. The section is dedicated to watches that brings the Icon brand even closer to the key luxury sector, as well as its readers, with stories and daily insights into one of modern man’s major passions, which is also the topic of the magazine’s monthly column by watch editor, Paolo De Vecchi.

 

Grazia previews its special issue: “Fashion, design and the virtual world”

Giulio Cappellini is featured guest editor of this special edition of the magazine

Grazia, the magazine under the editorship of Silvia Grilli, is on the newsstands with a special issue: “Fashion, design and the virtual world”, which sees Giulio Cappellini as featured guest editor.

The special edition of the magazine looks at the fusion of fashion and design and the new expressive opportunities introduced by the metaverse. A narration which, recounted through the eyes of famous designer, architect and entrepreneur, Giulio Cappellini, who recently received the Compasso d ‘oro alla carriera – the oldest and most authoritative world design award – guides Grazia readers on a journey exploring how space and the way we live it has changed, suspended between the real and the virtual world.

“I asked a great architect like Giulio Cappellini to be guest editor of this issue of Grazia, focussing on the encounter between design and fashion and exploration of creative freedom that the metaverse can offer. We have thus created this collector’s issue, where beauty becomes a life philosophy and the front cover a unique invention, “said Grazia editor, Silvia Grilli.

“It was a great pleasure and honour for me to have the chance to narrate the various facets of design for an attentive and wide audience, set against a contemporary and comprehensive view of our way of life”, Giulio Cappellini, emphasised.

The architect is also the protagonist of an exclusive interview that opens this special edition of Grazia. From his beginnings in the family business, followed by trips abroad discovering talents that today are some the most brilliant creative minds on the scene, spanning his passion for the Far East, Cappellini talks about himself and explains why today the challenge is not only to design something beautiful and useful, but to have it tell a story.

In this issue of Grazia, the guest editor also meets two names from the world of design. In the encounter with British designer Jasper Morrison who, with his simple and functional masterpieces has revolutionised design, and who in his exchange with Cappellini looks at how the new frontier is imparting lessons in sustainability, and the designer, Francesca Lanzavecchia, who explains to Cappellini how the virtual dimension will endow everyone with new freedoms.

Guiding readers over the pages of this special edition will be the voices of archistar and established talents.
These include Marc Newson, who explains to Grazia that, in the new virtual world, it will be love for beauty that makes the difference, and Rodolfo Dordoni who brings readers into his world of empathy and poetry. And also, Paola Navone, who, in the pages of the issue, explains if you want to reinvent objects and environments, you must never stop being surprised; Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec who have revolutionised design, showing us that the real strength of an object lies in its grace, and Patricia Urquiola explains to Grazia how we will be able to build spaces in which objects and technology are linked to our emotions and, not overlooking contributions from designers Guglielmo Poletti, Keiji Takeuchi, Sebastian Herkner, Panter&Tourron and Chiara Andreatti.

To enrich this special issue of Grazia, an exclusive reportage has been given over to collectible furniture pieces that combine design and fashion, created by great designers and chosen by Cappellini for their power to transform spaces.

An alliance – that between design and fashion – was also the escort underpinning the selection of the guest editor’s most iconic models of eyewear and bags, a leitmotif that continues in the fashion by Grazia pages, which has spawned a vibrant and colourful urban style in the hustle and bustle City of Milan that never sleeps – and beauty, which today is also virtual thanks to digital avatars that allow us to live unique experiences, all under the banner of freedom to dare.

The actress Coco Rebecca Edogamhe is the cover face of this special edition of Grazia and, by framing a QR code, her face will come alive, enabling readers to enter a three-dimensional reality. She has become a symbol for many young people with ethnic roots thanks to the series Summertime and she poses for Grazia in a fashion spread suspended between real and virtual worlds, like the one where her generation is trying to express its freedom.

The narrative of the encounter between fashion and design in the new issue of Grazia was enthusiastically embraced by the market and by numerous advertisers – managed by Mediamond – that opted to be part of this special issue, which can boast more than 100 pages in advertising sales.

A territorial event that allowed the brand of the Mondadori Group, a leader in the world of health and wellness, to strengthen and expand its offer, thanks to which it reaches 13.5 million individual online users each month (source: Audiweb, July 2022) and almost 3 million social network fans.

The Mypersonaltrainer Days were Mypersonaltrainer ‘s first opportunity to really meet its community and the many fans of a healthy and active lifestyle who took part in the initiative.

Sports and wellness lovers were able to meet the brand’s multidisciplinary staff and fitinfluencers and to listen to more than 100 exceptional speakers who animated the weekend’s shows under the guidance of Edoardo Stoppa. Among the guests, the sports champions Filippo Tortu, Linda Cerruti, Matteo Giupponi, but also many personalities from the world of entertainment, such as Federica Panicucci and Michela Coppa.

The results of the initiative

The huge success achieved during the Mypersonaltrainer Days event is not only due to the public, but also to the amazing outcomes recorded on the website and social networks: more than 2 million people on the website and beyond 3 million on the brand’s Facebook and Instagram channels.

These numbers are the result of a continuous sharing of stories, posts, articles and interviews exclusively prepared by Mypersonaltrainer’s editorial, social and filming team.

A winning formula that contributed to yet another great result: a media impact of more than 25 million gross contacts, thanks to the communication campaign on all of the brand’s touch points, an advertising campaign designed by Casiraghi Greco & for the social networks, website, press and radio, DOOH, OOH and influencer marketing and a spontaneous media coverage of great impact.

The results of the Mypersonaltrainer Days were beyond all expectations, also in terms of the advertising outcomes – handled by Mediamond – which allow Mypersonaltrainer to immediately lay the foundations for the second edition of the event, planned for next year.

The success of the Mypersonaltrainer Days was also made possible thanks to the partnership with Brand On Solutions, a unit devoted to the special initiatives organised by Mediamond, and to the partners who believed in the initiative’s holistic approach.
