A second edition of Mypersonaltrainer days with big numbers: more than 10,000 participants, 20 partners and 50 guests for more than 500 activities

Mypersonaltrainer Days, the event sponsored by the City of Milan dedicated to fitness, wellness and sports, organised by Mypersonaltrainer, a Mondadori Group brand leader in health and wellness, which was attended by over 10,000 visitors in only two days, has once again proven to be a great success.

A weekend with 500 free events, from the most innovative open-air workouts to talks to medical consultations, more than 50 guests and 20 partners, in an area of more than 1,500 square metres in the heart of Milan. 

The MYPT Urban Walk, the charity sports walk to benefit the Fondazione Italiana Diabete (Italian Diabetes Foundation) – with 1,500 registered participants – was met with praise, as well as the medical consultations done in collaboration with the Centro Diagnostico Italiano (Italian Diagnostic Center), which were sold out in only a few hours.

The local event has enabled the brand to strengthen and expand its offerings, where it already reaches 13 million unique users each month and over 3 million followers on social media.

On Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September the stage of the Mypersonaltrainer Days at the Dazio di Levante of the Arco della Pace in Milan was used for talks with major personalities and athletes who talked about the importance of sport and physical exercise for a healthy, balanced life. Guests included former soccer player Claudio Marchisio and Mattia Zenzola, the dancer who won Amici 22, psychiatrist and psychotherapist Raffaele Morelli, volleyball champion Cristina Chirichella, Nicola Macchione, andrologist and urologist, author and coach Daniele Di Benedetti and Sara Farnetti, an internal medicine specialist.

All the workout classes at the foot of the Arco della Pace were packed, and the most popular were Wake Up Yoga classes with Yoga Essential, the Super Jump and Fluid Silent Fitness classes with Jill Cooper, and Train with a Smile by Nicolò Famiglietti (of Power Talent Agency). There was major turnout on the sports fields, especially for Pickleball, Acrovolley, and Freeclimbing. 

The results of the initiative

The great public success was combined with the excellent results that Mypersonaltrainer Days recorded on social media, with more than 10 million people reached on the Facebook and Instagram pages, thanks also to the involvement of top fitfluencers.

These numbers are the result of stories, posts, articles and interviews exclusively prepared by Mypersonaltrainer’s editorial, social and filming team being shared. It was a winning formula that contributed to yet another great result: a media impact of more than 40 million contacts, thanks to talking about the event on all of the brand’s touchpoints, an advertising campaign planned for the social networks, the website, press and radio, DOOH, plus spontaneous, high-impact media coverage.

The campaign, that aimed for participation, was very effective, thanks to strategic digital advertising carried out with conversational marketing by Hej! and proximity marketing by AdKaora.

Casa Chi: the upcoming new season of the Chi social media format

Starting from 19 September, the video talk starts up again in the special Grande Fratello edition that totalled 36 million video views on social media last year

From Tuesday 19 September, the new season of Casa Chi Grande Fratello, the special edition of Chi Magazine social media format, will kick off. It chronicles the dynamics and behind-the-scenes of the reality TV show hosted by Alfonso Signorini.

Casa Chi Grande Fratello is the video talk dedicated to the Mediaset format with commentary on live TV broadcasts, behind-the-scenes features, trivia, backstage and interviews with pundits, contestants and former participants.

Video talks will be aired on Chi’s Instagram profile (@chimagazine): 2 episodes per week with exclusive guests to transport readers and digital users into the heart of the reality show. A successful formula that has made Casa Chi a must-see event for fans and allowed it to maintain exceptional growth rates: last year, the special edition of Grande Fratello totalled an impressive 36 million video views on social media (+140% compared to the 2022 audience), and that’s not counting reach and video views of all additional content (posts, stories, clips and trivia from backstage).

In short, an exclusive, immersive window into the world of entertainment, in the tradition of Chi”.

To cement the development and growth of the project, this edition of Mypersonaltrainer Days will be even better and more engaging than last year, both in terms of activities, which are innovative and fun, and because of the much larger space that we’ll be using to host the event”, said Daniela Cerrato, Mondadori Media’s Digital Marketing Director. “We’ll engage our followers throughout the Piazza dell’Arco della Pace and in Sempione Park – city’s green heart – with activities and experiences. We’ll offer fit lovers many new workouts, bringing this weekend dedicated to comprehensive health and well-being to life”.

In the fourth area, Happiness, the experience-based corners for those brands engaged in the search for well-being will be front and centre, where they’ll present innovations, products and services dedicated to a balanced and active life that will involve participants in activities and tests.

The events dedicated to fitness will see the participation of sports talents and fitfluencers to try sports like Animal Flow, Mobility or trendy activities that are increasingly becoming popular, like Silent Fitness. All this will take place in the splendid setting of Sempione Park: it’ll truly take over the famous square and the Dazio di Levante with innovative and engaging activities like Free Climbing, AcroVolley and Pickleball, a mixture of tennis, paddleball, badminton and ping pong. They’re amazing activities, which promise real fun for participants and spectators. The Mypersonaltrainer Urban Walk will take place also in this edition, which will be even more exciting and inclusive: a 5 km non-competitive walk where everyone can really participate, even pets.

Studenti passes the Italian graduate examination with flying colours: extraordinary results both online and on social media

For the 2023 Italian high school diploma, the brand has confirmed its position as the digital leader for Gen Z at school.

Boom in video views on TikTok, trebling the number, and a partnership with McDonald's.

Studenti, the Mondadori Group’s standard-setting community for Gen Z at school has recorded some extraordinary numbers on the website, for the 2023 Italian high school diploma exams, with a total of 5 million sessions (source: Google Analytics), whilst on social media particularly on TikTok where the brand’s special videos for the exam recorded 13 million video views, up 300% compared to 2022 (source: Iconosquare).

This success has been achieved thanks to important new products: the website has been refreshed with a new logo and a new look  alongside a host of improvements to more efficiently use the huge amount of resources available online from social media and mobile devices. School leavers could access the thousands of resources available and more easily combine the content with searches for more detailed information, summaries, concept maps and even podcasts, available on all of the major audio platforms (Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spreaker) and video lessons on the StudentiTV channel on YouTube.

In addition, according to tradition, news about the exam was covered in real time during the days on which the first two written tests were held (June 21-22) through a real live broadcast.


For the 2023 Italian high school diploma exams, Studenti played a key role on Gen Z’s favourite social networks: TikTok, for last-minute tips and revision, and Telegram, with a dedicated channel “Maturità 2023” (High school diploma exams 2023) designed to provide real-time support. Studenti has remained true to its purpose of providing support for study, focusing the TikTok channel videos on Edutainment, highlighting its leadership role with the hashtag #imparacontiktok and using fresh, easy-to-understand language.

Resources on TikTok focused on the most interesting topics for the school leavers’ exam and revision. A host of themed videos were produced in collaboration with edu-creators who are already linked to the brand, such as the communicator @scienzaedintorni, ambassador @emanuele_bosi, study coach @letismind, English teacher @antonioparlati and some new entries such as @scescience, the Physics student who engages girls in STEM subjects and @emmalaprofditaliano who shares rules and curiosities about Italian language. The young creators from Studenti want their videos and messages to be genuinely helpful and to be role models and reference points for teenagers too.


For the 2023 high school diploma exams, Studenti entered into a prestigious partnership with McDonald’s, which chose the special project “Road to the exams, good luck to all high school leavers” from the branded content solutions put forward. As the school exams coincided with the launch of #Summerdays from McDonald’s – from 5 to 30 June, with a special offer daily on the app – 5 creators from Studenti designed and produced TikTok videos with useful tips for the final days of exam preparation: “Three tips for the Italian exam”, “The importance of taking a break from studying”, “Avoid these mistakes when preparing for the high school diploma exams”, “The 3 most incredible mistakes in the history of the Italian high school final exam”, and “How to revise when time is tight”. At the end of each video, the creators provided followers with one more piece of advice: relax with a break at McDonald’s, enjoying the app offer of the day. The project was developed in cooperation with Fuse, the specialist branded entertainment unit of the OMG Group.


Studenti’s  commitment to supporting its young users and followers does not end with the Italian high school diploma exams but continues throughout the summer with news on the new procedures for the medicine test, post-diploma guidance, and content to help cope with holiday homework.

Branded Content proposals also continue: for  Back To School Studenti, in collaboration with Brand On, a project division of Mediamond, offers innovative and high-engagement partnership formats for the market, with a focus on good intentions for the return to school to engage students, families and professors with issues that also play an increasingly important role as school. These issues will be examined and explained by Studentithrough online surveys, articles, in-depth videos, and with the involvement of edu-creators on TikTok. They will target partners interested in aligning with values that are increasingly at the forefront of GenZ’s priorities such as inclusion, environmental sustainability, mental health, and rapid access to the world of work.

Studenti is the Mondadori Group’s brand leader in Italy for the digital market in the education category, with 4 million users on (source Audiweb). It is a leader for Gen-Z at school, thanks to a dynamic and constantly evolving editorial approach, characterised by innovative style and content and a team of young creators: a formula that has allowed Studenti to reach over 1.3 million followers on social media (Source Shareablee and social insights), on TikTok – where it is followed by 640,000 users – Facebook, Telegram and on YouTube (StudentiTV) where students can access guides and tutorials to prepare for exams.

Diversity Media Awards: to The Wom the award for the “Best Web Article”

Mondadori Media’s 100% inclusive digital brand has set itself apart in the field of media awards

The Wom, Mondadori Media’s 100% inclusive digital brand that speaks to young millennials and Generation Z, has won the Diversity Media Awards 2023 for the “Best Web Article”.

The eighth edition of the “Inclusion Oscars”, organised by the non-profit “Fondazione Diversity”, awarded the characters and media content that have contributed to an inclusive representation that highlights people by gender and gender identity, sexual and affective orientation, ethnicity, age, disability and physical appearance.

These are issues close to the heart of The Wom’s mission, which has become a touchstone for the younger generation on the Internet and on social media for the ability to combat prejudices and stereotypes with levity and empathy and highlight the uniqueness of every individual.

The Wom has set itself apart in the “Best Web Article” category – as part of the media awards – because of “‘No Data’: the investigation denouncing the lack of data on Italian Law 194”, written by contributor Francesca Polizzi.

“We are proud to receive this award: it’s an important recognition for the work done by The Wom team, just over a year after its debut on social media and the Internet. We make a daily commitment that comes from the need to make room for issues like equal rights, diversity and inclusion”, said Daniela Cerrato, Digital Marketing Director at Mondadori Media. “Our first mission is to raise awareness and we do it using a language that goes beyond any label, to get closer and closer to what our future represents, namely the new generations”, concluded Cerrato.  

That value, promoting an inclusive culture, is at the heart of the entire Mondadori Group’s commitment.

“As Mondadori Group we’re particularly proud of this major achievement from The Wom. It’s a privilege and a continuous source of enthusiasm for all of us to be able to contribute to the creation of a more inclusive, attentive and future-oriented society and world of work”, said Francesca Rigolio, Chief Diversity Officer of the Mondadori Group and Head of Human Resources in the Books Department.


The Wom is the new all-digital, social first media brand dedicated to Millenials and Generation Z, who consider uniqueness a strength and a value that enriches themselves and others. The Wom is the touchstone for the younger generation on TikTok and Instagram, with a total fanbase of 5 million followers (Shareablee + social insights May 2023) and 9 million unique users on the Internet (Audiweb April 2023)

Adkaora and Savi sign an exclusive partnership: proximity marketing is updated with digital coupons

AdKaora, the Mondadori Group’s digital agency specialising in user-centric mobile advertising and proximity marketing, and Savi, a marketing technology company specialising in the management of discount voucher-based shopper activation services, form an exclusive partnership that aims to promote the use of digital coupons at the main retail brands.

It’s a project that aims to offer customers a new level of proximity marketing able to influence the shopper journey through mobile couponing. More than 40% of Italian families are dedicated to looking for discounts and offers, and almost 60% of them carefully evaluate prices and quantities of the products they intend to buy (Iri Fmcg Demand Signals, October 2022).

This is a buying habit that, according to research by Savi, has grown by 25%, compared to 2021, and which today represents 10.5% of total cash transactions.

The integration between AdKaora’s advanced proximity marketing suite and Savi’s shopping activation technology therefore makes it possible to enhance brands’ marketing strategies, encouraging brand awareness, consideration and conversion thanks to the involvement of different media channels: from standard display formats and rich media created ad hoc by AdKaora Creative Studio, to push notifications, through Stocard formats and social planning carried out together with Hej!.

These tools are combined with drive to store objectives, as well as product launches, loyalty, customer acquisition and sales increases, allowing us not only to engage the user in the points of interest involved in the campaign, but also to collect important insights for brands thanks to footfall and post-campaign analysis.

Andrea Zermian, Savi’s Sales and Marketing Director: “Until today, media strategies often stopped ‘outside the store’, failing to follow the customer until in converted into a transaction at the checkout. Today, thanks to the partnership with AdKaora, the loop of a promotional initiative closes with the purchasing act being measured promptly. The transaction, that uses digital coupons and that is done in a fully automated manner through the retailer’s checkout, allows you to follow the shopper through their journey, starting thanks to online media and ending with the transaction in the physical point of sale. So, ultimately, it’s a fully measurable, omnichannel end-to-end experience. Now, thanks to this new collaboration, we’ll also be able to influence customer purchasing behaviour in the ‘moment of truth’, i.e. when they’re inside the store and are shopping”.

Davide Tran, CEO of AdKaora: “The partnership with Savi allows us not only to enhance our advanced proximity marketing offering with an additional user engagement channel, but also to improve their shopping experience, getting close to what’s called the ‘last mile’ in a targeted manner. Savi’s digitalisation of the coupon was what many customers wanted and having an exclusive partnership with this solution allows us to be a unique player on the market. In fact, sending the coupon directly greatly affects the purchase behaviour since the user is more encouraged to use the discount they receive on a certain product in the next few days by going to the points of sale. So there’s an opportunity for brands to achieve very specific communication objectives, which at the same time strengthens the drive to store”.

How digital coupons work
The promotion is created digitally on the Savi platform and is distributed through AdKaora channels. It can be used exclusively in a paperless form, which helps both the user experience and managing accepting the coupons at the point of sale.

The CouponLink page, a web page delivered to the consumer with a unique URL, hosts multiple discount coupons, but using them at the checkout only requires that a single “box” barcode located at the top of the page be used. This way the coupons are used favours security and generates useful insights in real time, promoting a seamless experience for the shopper, without requiring them to subscribe to or download any mobile apps.

AdKaora is a Mondadori Group digital company leading in mobile innovation which offers effective tools and solutions from a multi-channel perspective to brands and publishers to reach, engage and influence their target audience, bringing concrete and measurable results. AdKaora mixes data-driven qualitative audiences with exclusive advertising formats, created by AdKaora Creative Studio, which record high results in viewability and engagement, certified by third parties. Depending on the objective, activate the right audience through first-party data from the proprietary DMP or location-behavioural, vertical and premium publishers of the AdKaora Value Network.  The strong technological component is the plus for Proximity Marketing strategies. AdKaora enables and integrates the best technologies on the market with consolidated proprietary assets, offering an end-to-end Advanced Proximity Suite, thanks to which it is possible to involve and measure user activation from online to offline up to the purchase.  With an offer of in-gaming formats, immersive and integrated into the game experience, AdKaora reaches a highly profiled, transversal and involved target of gamers and enthusiasts by building new experiences for users, in a brand safe environment with a high user attention level.

Savi is a marketing technology company that specialises in managing services related to the use of discount vouchers and the involvement of consumers in the large-scale retail market and beyond.
Founded in 1982 under the name NCH, a spin-off of the market analysis company Nielsen Media research, and later known as Valassis, the company completed a rebranding process in May 2022 that led it to adopt its current name of Savi.

Savi interacts with 250 active customers in the brand industry and over 40,000 partner retailers, delivering over 50 million promotions every year. More than 40 large-scale retailer brands are then connected in real time with Savi’s proprietary digital platform.

“Chi by moonlight”: exclusive Chi charity dinner at the Grand Hotel Rimini to support the areas affected by the flood in Emilia-Romagna

More than two hundred guests, including celebrities, entrepreneurs and associations, will participate in the charity event created by the brand most loved by the stars

Chi, the most widely read “people” magazine in Italy, has chosen one of the most iconic locations in Italy, the Grand Hotel Rimini, for a charity event that demonstrates great support for the cause, and that will be held on Wednesday 28 June.

An exclusive summer party, with the magical and evocative theme of “By Moonlight”, involving the stars and players from the jet set, entertainment, politics, entrepreneurship and the country, but which above all demonstrates a generous and supportive heart: the Chi Charity Gala Dinner will be the culmination of the “Let’s Help Emilia-Romagna Together” fundraiser launched by Mondadori Media, together with Banca Mediolanum, in the hours immediately following the flood. All the proceeds from the dinner, in which more than two hundred entrepreneurs and celebrities will take part, will be donated to the Emilia-Romagna region through a dedicated account to support people and communities affected by floods and landslides.

“Helping those in need is increasingly urgent in our society”, said Alfonso Signorini, Chi managing editor. “Distracted by a thousand and one things, an emergency is enough to make us understand how important it is to be helpful. Nothing makes us feel better than being supportive. And it’s beautiful that Chi, who’s always been a symbol for escapist and leisure reading, is alongside the people of Emilia-Romagna for such an important cause. We’ll get back to entertaining, but now’s the time to act”.

“We want this gala evening to be a small but significant contribution to reviving a place, the Romagna Riviera, and a region, Emilia-Romagna, which has always been linked to the history and stories of Chi and its figures”, said Massimo Borgnis, the magazine’s editor-in-chief. “So what better opportunity to strengthen this bond by starting in the most symbolic place of the Riviera, the Grand Hotel Rimini, a concrete show of support, so that with the help of everyone, Romagna will soon return to being a place for la dolce vita, a place that’s about hospitality, joy and fun, which has been part of our holidays and our dreams and which Chi loves to describe in its pages”, Borgnis concluded.

Chi Summer Night: an exclusive evening by moonlight

Hosting the great party at Chi‘s invitation is the Grand Hotel Rimini of the Batani Group, a Liberty building of outstanding beauty, one of the iconic locations in Federico Fellini’s Amarcord, an incomparable location in the seaside history of the Riviera and of Made in Italy tourism.

“I’m pleased that, after the break due to the pandemic, Chi and Mondadori Media, to whom we have become great friends with and collaborated many times, have chosen the Grand Hotel Rimini and Romagna for their summer party. It will be a special evening, which has an even greater meaning, given the commitment made by everyone in the charity collection for the Emilia-Romagna region. It’s one more demonstration that if tourism is working, it can help those affected by the flood”, said Paola Batani, CEO of the Batani Group Select Hotels.

The exclusive event will start at 6:30 pm with an extraordinary blue carpet to welcome guests with a very impressive entrance in the Piazza Fellini, a grand thoroughfare for the public and the whole city. A welcome cocktail will follow in the majestic setting of the outdoor garden of the Grand Hotel Rimini, which will be set up with bright spheres to recall the theme of the evening, charming corners and a band that will play for guests throughout the cocktail.

Then the Charity Gala Dinner will begin, with a placée dinner, reserved for more than 200 guests, including entrepreneurs, associations and stars from the world of entertainment, on the terrace of the hotel that will end with a magnificent artistic performance. The tone of the evening will change for the third part: the after party on the private beach of the hotel that will be transformed into a exclusive club with musical performances, DJ sets, open bars and many corners that will entertain guests and be great fun for them.
