Grazia, a key reference for the latest in the fashion industry and current issues, is presenting Viaggio in Italia – Exploring Italy – a special issue on the most popular locations in the country, recounted by personalities from the worlds of cinema, music and culture.
“This special issue devoted to Italy looks at people’s love of our country. I wanted this passion to be told by the nation’s protagonists: leading names in entertainment and culture. Readers will find features on fashion and beauty that reflect the soul and extraordinary diversity of our country. Enjoy reading Grazia,” said the magazine’s editor Silvia Grilli.
The special edition offers accounts from three top authors, who describe their Italy. Luca Bianchini describes the country in the belief that its real treasure are its people, about whom not enough is said. Gianluca Carofiglio provides snapshots of Bari and Chiara Gamberale, who has been travelling round Italy to present her latest novel, tells Grazia about the emotions and dreams of a country that always has the power to astonish.
Home towns, squares and unexpected corners will also be described by popular figures like Stefano Accorsi, who takes us on a tour of his Bologna, and Luciana Littizzetto, who describes the working-class district in Turin where she grew up, while Mahmood talks about his childhood in Milan’s Gratosoglio district.
The Viaggio in Italia issue is packed with items on must-visit locations in Italy, from the Dolomites to the seas of the southern regions, from hilltop hamlets to enchanting beaches.
The cover story features Paola Di Benedetto, a TV presenter and social media star with more than 2 million followers, who poses for an exclusive photoshoot and recounts her childhood in a provincial town, the unplanned audition, her work on TV and radio.
