Moreover, the website will be updated in real time. Visitors will attend entertaining workshops with meetings on style, beauty, wellness and current affairs.

“Casa Pangea Piccoli Ospiti”: a social project for children
“Experience Store” is not only a territory-related project of a magazine. It promotes also an important charity project, born from the cooperation between Donna Moderna and Pangea – a no profit organization working to improve the economic and social development of women and their families – to help children and their mothers who suffered or witnessed domestic violence to regain self-esteem and trust in the future, to start living and growing again. Businesses and the public taking part in the activities organized by ’“Experience Store” will contribute through a fund, to give them concrete support.

“I have great faith in this experience in the streets a lot. It allows us a one to one meeting with our readers: first of all the possibility of listening to them, but also of offering them a chance to express themselves, to ‘play’ during our castings, to make both small and big everyday dreams come true, to receive our greetings and advice, to experiment with emotions, all the services Donna Moderna offers. We have put together thousands of activities: and I want to invite everyone to participate, to let emerge their creativity, their glamorous dream and to do some personalized shopping’. Dear readers, please take advantage of this!”, Cipriana Dall’Orto, co-director of Donna Modern sais.

“The ’Experience Store’ is a mixture of different channels: press, internet and territory”, Angelo Sajeva , President and CEO of Mondadori Pubblicità declares. “It is an innovative idea which allows our advertising clients to relate with the final consumer but also to develop activities supporting local points of sale. Companies are more responsive to this kind of initiative, having understood their potentials from the beginning”, Sajeva concludes.
