Grazia and Salvatore Ferragamo Parfums together for the launch of the new fragrance Amo Ferragamo

English model Suki Waterhouse and four cosmopolitan influencers are the protagonists of a special project to celebrate the passions of contemporary women

Grazia and Salvatore Ferragamo Parfums have developed a special project to mark the magazine’s 80th anniversary and the launch of the new fragrance Amo Ferragamo.

Travel, fashion, self-awareness and independence are the passions of contemporary women that Grazia and Salvatore Ferragamo Parfums jointly celebrate by talking about what women love. Because the Mondadori Group brand describes the contemporary world and fashion, talks to women and shares their greatest passions, the same passions to which Ferragamo has dedicated Amo Ferragamo.

The face of the new fragrance and featuring on the cover of this week’s edition of Grazia is Suki Waterhouse, the British model who symbolises the mil­lennials generation. In addition, to enhance this event, Grazia has involved four international influencers – Tatjana Catic, the London-based German fashion, fitness and beauty icon; Kristina Bazan, influencer and artist with over two million followers; Xenia Van Der Woodsen, who travels the world and lives between  Hamburg and Paris; and Marta Lozano, the Spanish socialite and fashion enthusiast, who is also enormously successful on YouTube – who will interpret on social media and other platforms the themes of the Amo Ferragamo campaign.

For this occasion, Grazia and Salvatore Ferragamo Parfums have also organised a special event involving the editor of Grazia Silvia Grilli, the chief executive of Ferragamo Parfums Luciano Bertinelli, the influencers  who are part of the project, as well as a number of personalities from the world of entertainment, including Fabio Volo and Johanna Maggy Hauksdottir, Filippa Lagerback and Daniele Bossari, Camilla Raznovich, and the actresess Giulia Bevilacqua and Benedetta Porcaroli.

For its unmistakeable style, Grazia has become a point of reference for the most dynamic readers and digital communities, as well as the preferred advertising vehicle for companies in the up-scale fashion and cosmetics sectors. These strong points have enabled Grazia to evolve into an international multi-channel print-digital-social-events system with over 20 editions around the world.

Donna Moderna and L’Oréal Paris launch Donne come noi, a big project focusing on female empowerment

The initiative is organised along three narrative lines the three: a book written for Sperling & Kupfer, a theatre show and a training programme

Donna Moderna, the Mondadori Group magazine edited by Annalisa Monfreda, on the occasion of its 30th anniversary, is launching with L’Oréal Paris a female empowerment project: Donne come noi (#donnecomenoi).
Empowerment means giving both power and responsibility to someone. And in this case, it means encouraging women to think big. Donna Moderna aims to do this with an inspiring book, a moving theatrical show and a training programme that provides specific skills.
L’Oréal Paris is accompanying Donna Moderna in this project, much as it is always at women’s sides, by offering the show and training programme for free to Italian women in order to help them to learn to believe in themselves.

The book
Donne come noi (Women Like US) is the title of a book that the editorial team of Donna Moderna has written for Sperling & Kupfer (in bookshops from tomorrow, 6 March, and presented at the Tempo di Libri event at FieraMilanoCity on Thursday 8 March at 5.30 pm).
34 journalists tell 100 stories about contemporary Italian women who, thanks to their determination, skills and courage, have achieved something important. From the boxer Irma Testa to the physicist Fabiola Gianotti, the restorer of The Last Supper Pinin Brambilla Barcilon to the manager of rappers Paola Zukar.  Strong and engaging stories that through struggles and success can inspire women to continue to their evolution in the family, at work and in society in general..
For 10 weeks, from 8 March, some of these stories will be broadcast on R101 in the Isabella Eleodori slot, on Thursdays at 10.30 am.
“Today, there is more than ever a need for stories about women’s conquests and successes; of a gallery of inspirational models. Telling stories has never been more important. And this is the sense behind the book that the editorial team of Donna Moderna have put together to celebrate the magazine’s 30th anniversary, a magazine that has accompanied the battles and celebrated the progress made by women. As the first edition is published, we are already at work on the second, as we collect stories from our readers, who can send them to us by email at this address:», declared the editor, Annalisa Monfreda.

The theatre show
To continue with inspiring stories, Donne come noi is also the name of a theatrical show produced by Donna Moderna, in collaboration with Teatro Franco Parenti, and that will tour Italy from 17 April. From the stage, five actors will play some of the protagonists from the book, as well as the journalists who met them, sisters, friends, teachers. A piano, a cello and an accordion weave through the stories and, in the background, a wall changes colour and is animated by key words. The theatre stimulates the emotions and after an hour and a half, the audience feels a pervasive sense of possibility and the perception that the only limit holds us back from achieving great objectives is the imagination.

The training programme
Team work, time management, reconfiguring your career, thinking outside the box, learning to present yourself: these are just some of the skills that the course, designed and developed by Donna Moderna will provide and that is offered free of charge in a number of Italian towns and cities.

Over the last thirty years, women have conquered professional roles form which they were previously excluded and have redrawn the balance inside the family towards greater equality. But still, in Italy only 48.8% of women work, compared with 66.8% of men. The worst figure in Europe, with the sole exception of Greece.
The aim of this training programme is to contribute to improving this situation by providing participants with the so-called soft skills that are now more important than ever in the selection of candidates. A team of trainers will be supported by a number of corporate professionals who will share their experience and offer guidance.

L’Oréal Paris is our partner in the “Donne Come Noi” project and, in line with the claim “Because you’re worth it”, supports the self confidence of women of all ages, around the world, as there is no single model of beauty.
Every woman has her own idea of being beautiful, an authentic way of  affirming and expressing herself and her values. L’Oréal Paris supports women around the world by encouraging them to see themselves as unlimited, in their realisation of their value and potential and for years has been at the forefront of female empowerment and always focused on gender discrimination and equal opportunities.

To support the initiative, a campaign has been developed across a range of media: print, web and social channels.

Donne come noi” has been organised in collaboration with Mondadori Store, that will host the training courses and book presentations inside its Bookstores. Here is a list of dates: Genoa 13 March, Turin 14 March, Bologna 22 March, Florence 23 March, Tolentino 24 March, Parma 26 March, Velletri 12 May, Bisceglie 19 May, Salerno 26 May. The addresses and times of the presentations are available at:

A year of success for CasaFacile

A new site, more castings to join the CF Style team, special initiatives and events for the magazine’s 20th anniversary

CasaFacile confirms its position as strategic brand and records +23% in revenues vs. 2016

A year full of special initiatives, news and events. 2017, for CasaFacile 2017 marked its 20th year, and it is preparing to welcome 2018 with much that is new.

Never more than this year has the Mondadori Group’s interiors monthly, dedicated to those who love their home and want to experience it every day with style and originality, met the challenge of accompanying readers on a discovery of a world that is simple, accessible and aspirational, all at the same time, while also making the dream of an ideal home both real and possible.

An exciting and trendy soul, with a touch of anti-conformity, has made the magazine, edited by Giusi Silighini, a winning product, made up of creative ideas and original suggestions that have always ranged from decoration to DIY, with a growing attention to style, design and innovative furnishing solutions.

“I asked my team to focus on the approach to features, above all when the subject might seem banal or unexciting,” the editor Giusi Silighini explained. “The ‘standard’ guide to choosing a matrass now starts from the highly personal style of sleep of each of us, before looking at the opinions of experts, the ‘classic’ layout of a child’s bedroom becomes an opportunity to apply the pedagogical principles of Maria Montessori. In this way, every page is ‘animated’ and the information becomes more layered in order to enrich all kinds of content, a bit like with HTML 4.0!”.

Among the many surprises that have marked the year . from the dream house to the CasaFacile Design Lab, as well as  workshops, supplements and the “Facciamo Casa” box set, produced with Mondadori Store – CasaFacile now brings to newsstands a special issue on the magic atmosphere of Christmas, with a scintillating cover and three whole homes, specially decorated and photographed by the magazine0s team.

The new and the CF Style community

Also the CasaFacilecasa-sul-web” (home-on-the-web) is completely new: even more beautiful, with more images and videos and easier to use. The changes include: broader content, tutorials, DIY, shopping suggestions among crafts and  design, as well as the new panoramic format and the homepage slider with high-impact photos that make it easier to catch the mood and style details. On there are also 20 videos dedicated to design icons, selected and presented by the journalist and TV presenter Giorgio Tartaro and the directories for CF style architects and Interior designers (all selected by the editorial team) ready to reply to readers queries ranging from to the simple restyling of a room. The redesign of the site has contributed to a growth in the traffic of casa, which is currently stable at around 300,000 unique visitors/month (Source: Audiweb View – Total Audience Digital– Average in the last 3 months).

CasaFacile is now much more than a magazine: in 7 years of active presence on social media it has created a team of 24 creative bloggers that share the style and actively participate in the title’s initiatives, but, above all, cultivate a dynamic and enthusiastic community of some 287,000 fans on Facebook and 103,000 followers on Instagram.

But the CasaFacile team will get even better: in January 2018 we will run a new casting to enlarge the team of bloggers and identify new ambassadors of the CF style. Details about how to take part and apply will appear soon on both the site and in the magazine.

The figures of an advertising success

The new editorial approach of CasaFacile has also been rewarded by the advertising clients. In fact, 2017 has confirmed the importance of CasaFacile as a strategic advertising vehicle. The brand continues to grow, both in terms of the number of clients (more than 160 this year, also form outside the sector), and in terms of advertising revenues. Indeed, the positive trend has led to an increase for the CasaFacile system of +23% in revenues, compared with 2016, a result achieved though both display advertising and  thanks to the numerous special projects and events organised exclusively for partner clients.
