The Mondadori Group confirms its role as the primary interlocutor for the digital world also at the leading B2B events. The Group was present at the latest edition of the IAB Forum with a stand dominated by a large central carousel, thematic activities and two workshops in which Giallo Zafferano and Grazia Factory were able to present their respective business models to leading players in the sector: a “merry-go-round of emotions” which, in line with the communicative mindset of the Group’s digital properties, generated over 1,500 contacts in the two days of the fair.

“The desert will be an extraordinary and unexpected discovery for our runners; amazing, moving and fascinating them, and, above all, leaving a unforgettable memory of the colours of the landscape that will last a lifetime. We are extremely proud to have collaborated in this highly original project which, in addition to the splendour of the nature of the desert, will also highlight the multiplicity of women’s skills and how Israel is an exceptional place where everyone can take advantage of the many opportunities to realise themselves and their dreams,” declared Avital Kotzer Adari, director of Israel’s National Tourist Board.

The initiative, which was launched in June, has involved both beginners and experienced runners with a training programme promoted by Donna Moderna and based on targets  assisted and advised by motivational coach Max Monaco, trail running instructor Federico Bertone and Lucia Rossi, a pharmacist and nutritionist.

fashion editor of Donna Moderna and Starbene

From Monday 9 July, Annalisa Monfreda, editor of the weeklies Donna Moderna and Starbene, will take on also the role of editor of Tustyle.

At the same time, Paola Salvatore, the current deputy editor of Tustyle, will expand her responsibilities following her appointment as fashion editor of Donna Moderna and Starbene.

This new organisational structure will give Tustyle, Donna Moderna and Starbene an innovative, cross-over position: on the one hand thanks to specific editorial skills, the fashion content offer for readers of the three weeklies will be enriched, while, on the other, it will be easier to enhance the relationship with interlocutors in the mass market advertising sector.

Donna Moderna presents the Atlete project

25 stories of women – told across all of the brand’s channels – who despite many sporting successes have remained largely unknown

Donna Moderna, the magazine edited by Annalisa Monfreda, presents a project called Atlete: stories of female sports professionals who – despite many sporting successes – are relegated by Italian regulations to amateur roles with a marginal image, also among the general public. From winter to team sports, and from swimming to disciplines generally considered more male, such as football, car racing and boxing, their stories stand out for their strength and determination and a capacity to enter the collective imagination and bring honour and acclaim to the country.

“In the great chorus with which in 2018 we are giving voice to “Donne come noi” (Women Like Us), which looks at women who are making headway gaining space in society, we felt that athletes deserved a special mention,” explained Annalisa Monfreda, editor of Donna Moderna. “They are the pioneers of female empowerment, as they continuously challenge the limits of their bodies and the society in which they live. And yet, despite this, they still face disparity with the other half of the sky, a disparity that is even written into the rules!”

Atlete ( is an online long-form response in 25 chapters, that will be published weekly, each of which – with video, photos and text – will tell the story of an outstanding sportswoman or group of sportswomen – that are representative of a universe, a specificity or a particular battle. Some examples: Eleonora Piacezzi, 23, is one of the brightest hopes of Italian women’s football. She plays for the national team and the Cuneo women’s team but she is still obliged to work part-time in her family’s greenhouse business in Liguria, and to train twice a week on her own and another twice a week in the evenings, after driving many kilometres by car to join her team-mates. Or Nataliya Shudruk and her team-mates of the Lobsters Pescara (a female American football team, a sport that in Italy has fewer then 100 participants) who in order to find the resources they need to participate in the championship had to organise a crowdfunding initiative and a self-produced calendar.

Atlete is also a series of 6 reportage article, published once a month in print, with outstanding photographs by Ugo Zamborlini and written by Gianluca Ferraris and Barbara Rachetti. And, from 15 June, an 8-part podcast, produced by Piano P, each of which telling a story in the voices of journalists, the protagonist and background sounds, along with audio extracts from the competitions.

The story continues also on social channels, using the hashtag #Atlete to share the project with the entire community of the Donna Moderna brand: the video interviews of Atlete will be available on YouTube and posted natively on Facebook and Instagram.

Interni presents “House in Motion”

With this edition, Interni’s much-awaited exhibition event celebrates its 20th anniversary

Interni confirms its leadership in the professional living segment and in the communication of the design system:
• advertising revenues up by 8.5%
• a system of publications that distributes over 652,000 copies

HOUSE IN MOTION” is the title of the much anticipated exhibition-event conceived by the monthly magazine INTERNI, and that with this edition celebrates its first 20 years (1998-2018).
With the patronage of the City of Milan, “HOUSE IN MOTION” will run during the FuoriSalone, from 16 to 28 April, the courts of the University of Milan, at the Orto Botanico in Brera and at the Audi City Lab in Corso Venezia 11 (formerly the Seminario Arcivescovile), where INTERNI has extended the reach of its urban animation initiatives.

The Mondadori Group magazine edited by Gilda Bojardi has called on leading protagonists from the world of Italian design and designers and architects of international standing to examine the theme of the “House in Motion”, in collaboration with companies, multinationals, start-ups and institutions. The result is an extraordinary collection of over 32 exhibits, from installations (18) and design islands (14), to micro-architecture and macro-objects, all site-specific, that combine to create a mosaic of forward-looking styles and visions.

The designs interpret issues related to living and mobility which, increasingly intersect and contaminate each other to generate new lifestyles. The home becomes a place that responds to the needs of those who inhabit it and adapts to their evolution; at the same time, places of transition, stopovers and work, such as means of transport,  adopt the friendly and informal spirit of homes, in which technology has an increasingly decisive. It is an exchange that generates new behavioural models and unseen design solutions.

Massimo Iosa Ghini, with Italcer Group, has translated these ideas into a linear and open house  of ceramic panels, set in the beautiful Cortile della Farmacia, equipped with special software that transforms it into a space for social interaction and sharing (Home Co-Thinking). The Peter Pichler Architecture studio, meanwhile, has given form to an almost spacy structure made entirely of wood (Future Space) in the centre of the Cortile d’Onore, a sort of six-pointed star of organic and dynamic form. Lorenzo Damiani along with Ikea Italia Retail has designed a ‘transportable’ house, with mysterious interiors to be explored, which demonstrates the ability of the Swedish company to accompany change (Searching for Infinity). Diego Grandi, celebrates the 80th anniversary of the magazine Grazia, an international point of reference in the world of fashion, with an installation inspired by the succession of arches along the portico of Largo Richini, that will host activities and events, an open, fun and emotional space, with free entry and liked to the outside, that reflects the spirit of the magazine (Infinity Hub, a wandering place).

Among the most significant international participants is the British studio Stanton Williams Architects that with Focchi Group presents ‘Baldacchino’, a luminous pavilion in metal and plexiglass pavilion which becomes a space for a dance performance, and, from Turkey, Tabanlioglu Architects that with Nurus are proposing housEmotion an archetypal structure with vibrating borders that represents the place of origin; from which we leave in pursuit of new experiences.

Among other things, designs will be on show by Dario Curatolo with Regione Puglia, Aba-Paolo Belardi and Daniela Gerini with Regione Umbria, Davide Rampello with Jiuquitang Co., Lissoni Associati with Elisabetta Illy and Stefano Guindani, Filippo Taidelli with Universal Selecta and Casalgrande Padana, Labics with Elica, Alexander Bellman with Samsung Electronics Italia and 14 other design islands.

“INTERNI HOUSE IN MOTION” also has two co-producers: Audi, the premium brand of the Volkswagen Group, and Eni Gas e Luce, a new company of  Eni SpA for the retail sale of gas, electricity and energy solutions. Each of the main sponsors are presenting a high-impact installation, designed by internationally renowned architects and in dedicated locations: Mad Architects with Audi at the Audi City Lab, the former Seminario Arcivescovile in Corso Venezia 11, while Eni gas e luce with students from the SOS-School of Sustainability and Mario Cucinella Architects at the Orto Botanico in Brera.

Ma Yangsong from the Mad Architects Studio has designed for Audi an evocative ring of light (Fifth Ring) that hangs over and animates the courtyard of the palace in Corso Venezia 11, a mix of fog and reflections, a metaphor for the conjunction of innovation and the future, represented by on of the car manufacturer’s most surprising prototypes.

SOS-School of Sustainability and Mario Cucinella Architects meanwhile, brings the intangible beauty of energy behind the nature of the Orto Botanico in Brera, transforming the area into a smart city in which history lives alongside the most advanced urban models. Seven hundred small, well-lit and smart living units are the protagonists of an interactive space.


The music of R101, the official radio of “HOUSE IN MOTION”, will animate the evening of Friday 20 April with the music show R101 DUAL DIGITAL DJ SET featuring Aggness and Gerry Pulci while on Sunday 22, at the end of the first week of the exhibition and the FuoriSalone, an exclusive concert by the jazz pianist Danilo Rea.

The INTERNI system

In April the INTERNI integrated communication system is multiplied by six, underlining its role as the main source of information for the world of design. In fact, thanks to 4 print publications (INTERNI, INTERNI Panorama, the free press INTERNI King Size and the Guida FuoriSalone), a big event (“INTERNI HOUSE IN MOTION”) and INTERNI online (web site, app and social), the system offers tools that make it possible to be up to date in real time about trends, what’s new and previews related to the design world, making it an authentic vademecum for everyone who wants to find out about and find their way around an event that is unique in the world, the FuoriSalone.

The INTERNI system in numbers

With an appointment that gives to Milan a unique and exceptional level of visibility, the INTERNI system confirms its absolute leadership in the professional living segment with an 8.5% rise in advertising  revenues, as well as in the communication of the design system, transforming itself from a sector-based publication to a mass media platform. The brand’s strength derives from the figures that the entire INTERNI ecosystem can boast on this occasion: 55,000 copies of INTERNI, 200,000 copies of INTERNI/Panorama, 120,000 copies of INTERNI King Size, 250,000 copies of the Guida FuoriSalone, a total print run over 625,000 copies, with more than 4,000,000 readers and around 1,200 pages.

Further proof can also be seen on the territory: in fact, an important street advertising campaign is foreseen for “HOUSE IN MOTION” that includes banners in 15 locations in the centre of Milan, 1,000 flags for around 500 events, 10 shuttle bus retros, as well as totems, decorated newsstands, floor-graphics, station domination (Rho and Cadorna), windows and led walls (Megastore Mondadori in Piazza del Duomo and the Rizzoli Store in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele).

To find your way around the increasingly rich panorama of appointments planned for the Milan Design Week, a must-have is the Guida FuoriSalone® – which is also available as a free app for iPad, iPhone and Android devices (tablets and smartphones) – which provides a reasoned summary of over 400 events and a day by day list of appointments involving the companies, designers and architects participating in the FuoriSalone, and the Guida Zee Milano (available only in the digital version) with a selection of new itineraries and fashionable locations around the city: from design to shopping, and from department stores to restaurants and hotels.

Donne come noi: on stage with Tosca at the teatro Franco Parenti in Milan

The show inspired by the book “Donne come noi” written by Donna Moderna and published by Sperling&Kupfer

Donne come noi is the name of the show produced by Donna Moderna, in collaboration with the Teatro Franco Parenti, that will open in Milano on 17 April 2018 before going on to tour Italy.

Based on the book of the same name, written by 34 journalists on the editorial team of the magazine, and published by Sperling & Kupfer. Donne come noi is a collection of 100 stories of contemporary Italian women who on the strength of their tenacity, competence and courage have achieved something important.

They include: Fabiola Gianotti director general of CERN, Pinin Brambilla Barcilon restorer of the Last Supper, Elena Cattaneo pharmacologist, biologist and life senator, well know for her research in stem cells and Huntington’s disease, Chiara Vigo weaver and the world’s last great expert of fine linen, Paola Zukar the lady of rap and manager of artists such as Fabri Fibra and Marracash, Roberta Buzzolani Chief Prosecutor of Sciacca, Francesca Bosco one of Italy’s best-known criminologists, Bebe Vio fencer and paralympic champion, Sofia Goggia one of the world’s leading skiers and winner of the downhil gold medal at the recent Winter Olympic Games.

The show by Giulia Minoli and Emanuela Giordano, brings to the stage 5 actors who interpret some of the protagonists of the book, accompanied by piano, cello and accordion. The leading part is played by actor and singer Tosca with Giovanna Famulari, Maria Chiara Augenti, Eleonora De Luca, Rita Ferraro and Fabia Salvucci who together will tell the stories of women who have changed ytheir lives and those of others, that are a hope for the future, who can be taken as models and examples.

Donne come noi is a project dedicated to female empowerment. Empowerment means giving both power and responsibility to someone. In this case it means encouraging women to think big. Donna Moderna, the Mondadori Group weekly edited by Annalisa Monfreda, wants to achieve this with an inspiring book, a show that is meaningful and moving and with training courses that develop concrete skills.
Teamwork, time management, career reconfiguration, thinking outside the box, learning to tell your story: these are just some of the skills that the training course, offered for free in many Italian towns and cities, aims to develop.
The objective of the training course is to provide participants with the so-called soft skills, that today count so much in the selection of candidates. The team of trainers will be supported by a number of professionals from companies who will bring their knowledge and experience.

L’Oréal Paris is supporting Donna Moderna in this project, just as it is always on the side of women, in terms of beauty but also in terms of self-esteem, as is expressed by the company’s famous claim “Because I’m worth it”. L’Oréal supports women by encouraging them to see themselves as “unlimited” with regard to realising their potential.
L’Oréal Paris offers the show and the training courses for free to Italian women so that everyone can learn to believe in their own worth.

The magazine thus becomes an event, and opportunity for exchange and direct contact with the country. Our aim has been to enhance our relationship with people  and we have achieved this, and we don’t want to stop,” Leone added.

An authentic consecration of a tried and tested formula that includes talk shows, debates with leading figures from national politics, conferences and entertainment: in the last four years more than 20 million people have been reached by the tour, with over 500,000 taking direct part in the events in 45 towns and cities, with more than 1600 guests and speakers (including government ministers, Regional Presidents and mayors), and almost 1000 events free and open to the public. This year the format will be expanded to include a new editorial team to cover a complete range of themes and issues of current interest:: alongside the editor Raffaele Leone and the editorial director of the tour Sergio Luciano, will be Nicola Porro, protagonist of talk shows on territorial growth and development; Oscar Giannino, who will oversee meetings with businesses on the economy and innovation; Vittorio Sgarbi, the unrivalled animator of lessons about art and the discovery of Italian treasures; the editor of Focus Jacopo Loredan who will moderate meetings looking at science and technology; Marco Ventura for encounters with local and national politics; Roberto Giacobbo literally “leading” city bike tours; the editor of Icon Michele Lupi who will run the meetings with leading figures from the world of fashion and Made in Italy; Fiammetta Fadda will talk to some of the best chefs in Italy, the editor of Ciak Piera Detassis will meet with stars from the cinema, Gianni Poglio with stars from the world of music and Antonio Carnevale with writers and authors.

A Panorama d’Italia info-point will be manned continuously in the heart of each city for the duration of the event and in other areas a number of institutional and entertainment events will be organised. Key figures from the local and national economy will discuss together examples of territorial excellence and development prospects, in collaboration with local Chambers of Commerce and universities. At each city on the tour, the Mondadori Group company Inthera will conduct research on the territory of each location to understand opinions and the level of satisfaction of local citizens. And, during the talk show “Presidente mi spieghi” (President Please Explain), the regional governor will respond live to questions from citizens.

Once again the tour will also feature the meetings organised by Focus and dedicated to the environment, in collaboration with the Italian Research Council and Air Force, and to astronomy with Umberto Guidoni who will take everyone on a “Journey into Space” with scientists and astronauts from the European Space Agency (ESA).

Also this year a central focus will be on young people, training and employment, including the return of  the project for children 100 libri per 1 scuola” (100 books for 1 school), that rewards the city’s high schools and best students, based on a competitve essay on their favourite book. In fact, thanks to the support of Mondadori Books, Panorama has been able to donate over 8,000 during previous tours to the winning schools. Moreover, also the 2018 edition of Panorama d’Italia will offer the possibility for high-school students, undergraduates and recent graduates to take part in round table discussions and individual orientation meetings organised in collaboration with HRCommunity Academy Italia, with the heads of human resources from leading companies in the area.

Finally, and also with the aim of promoting local business excellence, Panorama and IBM will take up a new challenge: to offer concrete answers to local entrepreneurs and companies who wish to raise a particular business problem. This is IBM Cloud Garage, an initiative that, in the space of two weeks, aims to find solutions which are presented at a specially dedicated event.
