Mondadori Media's offer is further strengthened after the success of The Wom Beauty with the launch of Mypersonalbeauty, the new brand extension dedicated to Mypersonaltrainer’s beauty wellness, which already has 1.3 million followers on social media, as announced today at the IAB Showcase 2024.

Mondadori Media, Italy’s leading social and digital publisher, presented The Beauty Revolution! at the IAB Showcaseevent, the IAB Italia marketplace dedicated to digital content.

During the panel dedicated to the world of beauty, the latest Mondadori Media development was presented: from Mypersonaltrainer, a brand leader in the fitness and wellness sector, comes Mypersonalbeauty, designed for women over 35.

It’s a publishing offer that aims to speak to all generations. Mypersonalbeauty, which is more focused on beauty wellness and involves experts, is aimed at a target group of successful and well-informed women, complementing The Wom Beauty, dedicated to beauty lovers under 35, focusing on beauty and style inspiration and the hottest trends, narrated by creators who are part of the Power Talent agency roster with the recent addition of top beauty TikToker, Arienne Makeup.

Both brands are present on the Internet and on social media, and with The Wom Beauty’s over 1 million followers on Instagram and TikTok, and Mypersonalbeauty’s 1.3 million followers on Instagram, the two are already affirming themselves as brand leaders in the beauty sector.

As mentioned above, Mypersonalbeauty can count on a team of professionals, including doctors, cosmetologists, researchers, wellness coaches and beauticians, who will address topics such as anti-ageing, skincare, hair and nail care, and body and facial treatments through a variety of formats. There will also be weekly columns, videos, articles, test&tell initiatives, analysed and customised content, as well as the new themed hubs to keep up to date with the latest trends.

Through its publishing brands, The Wom Beauty and Mypersonalbeauty, and with the participation of Power Talent Agency talents, Mondadori Media highlighted the new trends in the beauty world during the IAB Showcase 2024, with a particular focus on target diversification and the values that have always made the three brands stand out: authenticity, authoritativeness, wellness inspiration, harmony, balance and freedom of expression, vision and talent.

Webboh Lab and Z Power: the two big news for Gen Z announced at IAB Forum 2023 from the stage “Regeneration from Z to Alpha”

The two big news: Webboh Lab, the observatory dedicated to the younger generation, and Z Power, the “spin-off” for Gen Z from Power Talent Agency

At the IAB Forum 2023, Mondadori Media enlivened the Vision Arena with a rich schedule focused on Gen Z and with two inspirational speeches, by Andrea Santagata and Benedetta de Luca, on the future of digital media and inclusive communication.

Mondadori Media, the leading Italian multimedia publisher on social media and in the digital world involving Gen Z, was the protagonist with the stage “ReGENERATION from Z to Alpha” in the Vision Arena of the IAB Forum 2023, the main event in Italy dedicated to digital innovation, which was held in Milan on November 8 and 9. Building on its experience of social and new generation issues, Mondadori Media took advantage of the valuable setting provided by IAB Forum to announce two great new products dedicated to Gen Z: Webboh Lab and Z Power.

Webboh Labis the first permanent digital observatory of Gen Z, which gives back to the world the authentic photograph of this new generation: a privileged vantage point to know up close and in real time the thoughts, opinions, expectations and interests of young people, thanks to the centrality of Webboh, the first Italian community dedicated to Gen Z, and the authority of the Istituto di Ricerca Sylla.

In less than 48 hours, 24,000 teens between the ages of 12 and 20 responded to the first instant survey launched in community stories on Instagram. The results showed – as professor Furio Camillo, Professor of Business Statistics at the University of Bologna and Sylla’s Scientific Director, had the opportunity to illustrate – that Generation Z is not a monolith, but is made up of five profiles of social media users: Meme Maestro, comprising 40% of young people surveyed, Creative Explorer (18%), Like Lover (17%), Social Soul (14%), and Digital Dreamer (11%).

The Meme Master uses social media through entertainment and virality, while the other four clusters use the platforms for more value-based purposes, such as exploring interests, promoting social causes, obtaining support and sharing their creativity. Another piece of evidence that emerged debunks  the belief that young people without social media are  lonely: when asked to imagine a world without social media, the fear of loneliness scored 4.3 – on a scale where 1 equals “not at all” and 10 equals “maximum” – and is one of the last most important markers (the highest marks were obtained by “I would be bored” and “I would do more sport”). A further interesting result shows that, in a world without social media, the younger generation would miss WhatsApp and Instagram, followed by TikTok and YouTube, while they would not miss Facebook, in the last position behind Twitch, Discord, and X. To learn more about all the results of the survey and the survey possibilities offered by Webboh Lab, visit

There are also important news about Power Talent Agency. Z Power is the new agency’s spin-off dedicated to young talents who relate to Gen Z and with whom they share values and themes. A roster of ordinary young creators who speak about what they believe in, including ACapoDelGlobo (aka Giulia Berettini), Ella’s Book, Webboh talents as Claudia Mariani, Arianna Madonna and Christian Candela, and so many others. Z Power aims to create a bond between creators and brands that want to connect with their audiences, creating an ecosystem of mutual collaboration and growth. Its launch enriches Mondadori Media’s proposal for communicating the world of the younger generation, thanks in part to synergies with the Webboh publishing brand.

The IAB Forum 2023 hosted, among others, the plenary panel titled “Generazioni e Rigenerazioni,” an inspirational moment held by IAB Italia President Carlo Noseda and Andrea Santagata, Managing Director of Mondadori Media Area Digital and Polo MarTec. The panel was focused not only on digital evolution in the last 20 years but also on future and its applications, starting with AI.

On the same stage Benedetta De Luca, Disability Advocacy, Gender & Inclusion Editor for The Wom and creator of Power Talent Agency, attended too. She addressed the theme of inclusion within the world of communication together with Martina Fuga, Communications Manager of CoorDown, and Nicola Acampora founder of PizzAut.

Mondadori Media enlivened the Vision Arena with a rich schedule and many guests with the moderation of Giampaolo Colletti, journalist contributor to Il Sole24Ore and StartupItalia Director: 25 professionals in this sector, 65% of them women, delved into topics related to the new generations, such as communication strategies (thanks to the intervention of media and advertising agencies Open Influence, Ogilvy, Omnicom Media Group and Dentsu Creative) and the evolution of trends, thanks to the intervention of the main social platforms such as Meta, TikTok and YouTube. The values and creativity that characterize Gen Z with panels by The Wom and Webboh were outlined too.

During the two intense days of IAB Forum 2023, there were many workshops signed by Mondadori Media: in the first one, “The Social Big Opportunity,” Andrea Santagata presented Mondadori Media’s development strategy and, in the second one, Edoardo Rettori, Sales Account Manager of AdKaora, and Betty Lasjuilliarias, Digital & Omni-Channel Manager of Alcon, illustrated the successful case study for the Alcon brand thanks to the new Impact Video format of AdKaora.

Mondadori Media is Italy’s leading multimedia publisher, with a distinctive positioning and audience on the editorial market. Through its brands, the Mondadori Group’s social multimedia company caters for the passions of the Italians – food, beauty, fashion, health and wellness, science and tech – and reaches more than 26 million unique users every month (source: Audiweb Jan-Aug 2023) and a total fanbase of 100 million (source: Comscore Shareablee + Pinterest insight October 2023).

Webboh is the flagship media of Gen-Z. Founded in April 2019, it has been part of Mondadori Media since February 2023. It currently has a fanbase between TikTok, Instagram and YouTube of 3 million users of which 70% are under the age of 24, a website of 2.5 million monthly unique users (source: Audiweb Average Month 2023) . It is in the top ten most influential Italian media on social, as well as the first in target generation Z for engagement and video views (source: Top Italian Media Rankings of Prima Comunicazione made by Sensemakers). The topicality, authenticity and interest aroused by the content is guaranteed by the bottom-up editorial model: the community is involved in every part of the creative process.

Power Talent Agency is Mondadori Media’s agency that manages a roster of talents with different artistic paths. The variety of profiles makes Power a unique reality in the Italian digital world, in which the talent of influencers and creators is transformed into value for brands, reaching over 30 million video views per month.The projects developed can also benefit from integration opportunities with Mondadori Media brands, from The Wom to Mypersonaltrainer to Webboh, for the creation of content with a strong impact in message, language and style. The goal is to create authentic stories for all target segments, especially for the genZ and young millennialZ public.

More than 27 million adult Italians follow at least one influencer on social media (up 17% from 2021)

The data emerges from the new research "Italiani & Influencer" conducted by BVA Doxa in collaboration with Mondadori Media and Buzzoole, which investigates the role influencers play in the daily lives of Italians.

  • Among the most noted are Chiara Ferragni, Giallozafferano and ClioMakeUp
  • Increasingly relevant role of mentors in procurement.
  • More than 3 million people, particularly gen z and millennials, follow at least one virtual influencer.

Over 27 million adult Italians (18-74 years old) follow at least one influencer or the social channels of a publishing brand (+17% compared to 2021), the figure corresponds to 71% of active users on social networks confirming the increasingly relevant importance of these figures in people’s daily lives and the fundamental role they assume in purchasing processes.

In addition,57% of Italians, out of the analysed sample of the population aged 18-54, follow a macro influencer or the social channels of an editorial brand every day (+20 percentage points in two years), 8% once a week, and only 5% said rarely. The “macro influencer” category includes people and editorial brands with at least 100 thousand followers recognized as influencers by their communities in six specific fields: lifestyle, beauty, fashion, entertainment, food and wellness.

These are some of the data that emerged from the new research “Italiani & Influencer” carried out by BVA Doxa in collaboration with Mondadori Media and Buzzoole, with the aim of thoroughly investigating the opinions of Italians towards a category that is increasingly present in people’s daily lives and has a strong impact from the point of view of purchasing processes and consumption.

But who are the top 5 macro-influencers by notoriety in Italy? Leading the ranking remains Chiara Ferragni (cited by 86 percent of the sample), followed by Giallozafferano (72 percent) and Benedetta Rossi (72 percent). In fourth place is ClioMakeUp (62 percent) and in fifth is Aurora Ramazzotti (60 percent).

Very interesting, and in discontinuity with other media, is the figure for the most followed topics on social media: in first place, in fact, the research notes food tied with entertainment, with 58 percent. It is not surprising, then, that the Top Five include two food media brands.

The importance of influencers as true tutors in purchasing processes is also reconfirmed in this year’s survey: 46% of respondents have made at least one purchase suggested by an influencer and 83% take their advice into consideration.

Examining purchase intentions in individual areas, topping the list of Italians’ preferences are the profiles of Giallozafferano (83%) in food&beverage, Mypersonaltrainer (81%) in the wellness area, and ClioMakeUp (88%) in the beauty world.

Andrea Santagata, CEO of Mondadori Media comments: “Years ago, we decided to strengthen our digital area by investing to strongly enter the social media segment and the influencer marketing sector. The results of this research fully confirm the validity and strength of this decision” – and continues- “Investing and growing in new media also means identifying and enhancing new talents and always focusing on new communication languages. With a network of 200 creators and more than 800 million monthly video views on the socials of our editorial brands, we are witnessing the transformation taking place in video entertainment, where social and creators are the new palimpsest of Gen Z. Socials today are increasingly the reference point for Italians on their main interests and passions with volumes typical of TV to which is added the ability to engage audiences.”

For the first time ever in the Italian scenario, it emerged, in addition, that there are more than 3 million Italians who follow at least one virtual influencer, particularly from the Gen Z and Millennials target audience. Specifically: 28% are from the 18-24 age group, 34% from the 25-34 age group, 24% from the 35-44 age group, and finally 14% from the 45-54 age group. Those who know and follow virtual influencers do so consistently every day (as if they were real influencers). In fact, 57 percent of respondents follow them every day, 28 percent every 2-3 days, 7 percent more or less once a week, 4 percent every 10-15 days, and only 5 percent have no usual frequency.

“The presence of influencers in people’s daily lives – adds Gianluca Perrelli, CEO of Buzzoole is now well established. Indeed, in recent years, we have witnessed their evolution, thanks in part to their ability to create more and more empathy and affinity with their communities, establishing a trusting relationship with people. Two interesting trends also emerged from the analysis. The first is the extraordinary growth of TikTok with 25 percent, confirming it as an increasingly strategic channel. The other is that of virtual influencers, who are playing an increasingly prominent role on par with real influencers, as well as reaching out more to Gen Z and Millennials. In fact, we are witnessing yet another paradigm shift born in the wake of innovation itself.”

Regarding channels, in fact, there is the increase of TikTok with 25% (vs. 9% in 2021), especially for entertainment at 30%. Instagram, on the other hand, again emerges as the favourite social media of 77 percent (vs. 67 percent in 2021) of respondents.

Why do you follow an influencer?

Fifty percent of respondents say they follow them first and foremost because they provide advice and are considered experts to get information from, a motivation that was cited mainly by wellness (55 percent) and cooking (56 percent) enthusiasts. 46% follow them because they introduce new products.

The analysis considers the role of influencers in the buying process as well. In particular, it emerges that for 56 percent of respondents they are mentors in explaining a product especially in the beauty and wellness sphere; for 46 percent they are trendsetters who point out news or raise awareness of a new product (fashion and lifestyle); and for 37 percent they are people who point out where and when to buy a product (again in fashion and lifestyle).

In addition, 46% of respondents made at least one purchase because they were recommended by an influencer. In detail, 30 percent consider influencers’ advice a lot/regularly, 53 percent quite a bit, and 18 percent not much/not at all. The areas in which people shop are: beauty, food and fashion.

The survey involved over 1,300 respondents, representative of Italians between the ages of 18 and 54 who surf the Web, examining the six topics of greatest interest declined by socio-demographic profiles, with a focus also on the female target.

McDonald’s and Mondadori Media sign Italian data protection authority’s Pietrarsa agreement

A project to promote correct use of data by younger users, organised by Focus Junior, the reference brand for children and teenagers

The Pietrarsa National Railway Museum today hosted the State of Privacy ’22 event sponsored by the Regional Authority of Campania and the Municipality of Naples, which promotes correct use of digital data among users.

As part of this important event, McDonald’s and Mondadori Media, the Mondadori Group’s social multimedia company, took up the proposal of the Garante della Privacy – the Italian data protection authority – by signing an agreement in which they undertake to promote correct use of digital data among young users: the objective is to make available the necessary tools to educate youngsters about the value of their personal data in order to help them become active, knowledgeable citizens, users and consumers.

Through Focus Junior, the reference brand for children and teenagers which uses an edutainment approach to offer its readers a means to explore the world, concepts and terminology will be explained in a simple entertaining way to stimulate curiosity with the right questions and a touch of irony. Assisted by specialists on the subject, Focus Junior will publish articles in the magazine, videos, posts, memes and short clips on its website and social media.

The same content will be amplified in McDonald’s restaurants with a booklet edited by Focus Junior, packed with cartoons, infographics and illustrations, which will be distributed during events organised for youngsters. Given its widespread presence across Italy, McDonald’s is an effective amplifier of values, especially among young people, who have always been one of its most faithful publics.

We are happy to have accepted the invitation of the Garante della Privacy and to have signed this important undertaking to safeguard the younger members of the community,” commented Luisa Adami, General Counsel and Franchising Director McDonald’s Italia. “Personal data processing is an issue to which we pay great attention: protecting our users is a priority. We are proud to join a project to raise awareness among children and young people, an initiative I feel strongly about not only in my role as General Counsel, but also as the mother of two daughters who come into the project’s target group.

“Educating children and young people about personal data protection is a priority for society as a whole, and one in which, as a publisher that talks to the younger generations on a daily basis, we want to play an active part,” said Mondadori Media Chief Operating Officer Andrea Santagata. “This is why we have responded with such enthusiasm to the appeal of the Garante della Privacy to take concrete action in this area: we are doing so with a project organised by the Focus Junior brand, to answer the questions of young people and their families and give them the knowledge to be aware and responsible.”

 McDonald’s Italia

Active in Italy for 35 years, today McDonald’s has 640 restaurants across the country and a total of 27,000 employees who serve 1 million customers every day. Ninety percent of McDonald’s Italian restaurants are managed on a franchising basis by 140 local entrepreneurs, reflecting the brand’s strong local roots. McDonald’s confirms its intention of being a “local” brand

also through its choice of suppliers, 85% of whom are Italian companies or companies that have production operations in Italy. Worldwide, McDonald’s operates in more than 100 countries with over 38,000 restaurants.

 Mondadori Media

Mondadori Media is Italy’s leading multimedia publisher, with a distinctive positioning and audience on the editorial market. Through its brands, the Mondadori Group’s social multimedia company caters for the passions of the Italians – food, entertainment, science, fashion, edutainment and much more – and reaches more than 25 million unique users every month (source: Audiweb Jan-June 2022), an overall fanbase of 70 million people (source: Shareablee + social insight 2022) and almost 9 million readers (source: Audipress 2022/I).

Mondadori Media joins ONIM

The Mondadori Group’s social multimedia company joins ONIM to offer the National Influencer Marketing Observatory an even broader vision of Italy’s influencer marketing scene

ONIM – the National Influencer Marketing Observatory, which analyses Influencer Marketing at the national level in Italy, welcomes new member Mondadori Media, the social multimedia company in the Mondadori Group that leads the Italian market with 60 million fans.

This synergy will broaden ONIM’s vision of the Italian market even further, integrating the experience and know-how of the Mondadori Media brands, which lead the way in vertical segments linked with the Italians’ great passions: from Giallozafferano to Focus, MyPersonalTrainer and The Wom, to mention only a few.

The social multimedia company holds a distinctive position with 110 social profiles and a growing fanbase on all platforms. This dynamic range continues to grow with innovative editorial content drawing on exclusive partnerships with more than 200 top creators particularly popular with Generation Z, a target that is increasingly the focus of brands’ projects and special initiatives.

“The addition of a company like Mondadori Media,” says Matteo Pogliani, ONIM Founder and President, “represents yet another step toward a complete understanding of influencer marketing and the creator economy in Italy.
