To coincide with the Venice Film Festival, Grazia, the leading 100% Italian fashion brand, with 21 editions around the world, presents “Io sono il Cinema” (I am cinema).
A special issue of the magazine edited by Silvia Grilli dedicated to the rebirth of the world of cinema: from the stories of the most popular actresses and actors al who talk about their burning passion for the set to the mythical red carpet and the most glamorous fashion.
“Today Oggi Grazia is out with an extraordinary issue dedicated to a vibrant passion for the cinema. The 16 personalities involved in the putting together of this issue talk about their love for the set and how it has given an added dimension to their lives. All of them also remind us that art is freedom. Among the 16 is Sahraa Karimi, the only Afghan woman with a degree in film-making. In her piece she talks about how the Taliban, with their medieval cruelty and cultural vandalism, are against art, against the cinema and against women. Indeed, they consider educated and independent people like Sahraa a threat. I hope that in these pages you can identify with the passion that animates the protagonists of the issue. Let’s all appreciate the infinite value of freedom. I invite you all to become a threat” declared the editor Silvia Grilli.
