    C41 Podcast #05: Situér Milano

    C41 Podcast #05: Situér Milano

    Listen to the fifth episode of our podcasts series with Situér Milano, a design duo, interviewed by the talented freelance journalist Marta Galli.
    Sometimes it's the simple ideas that change the course of things. And it was the simple idea to bend metal instead of welding it that changed the lives of Federica Paoli and Biagio Castellani, the thirty-year-old founders of situér Milano. The brand, which is less than two years old, already had deep roots in the metalworking world however, inherited from Biagio and the family company that produces industrial shelving in Tuscany. You can read the interview with this designer duo also on C41 Issue 10.

    Bimbe Nel Pallone - A true story by C41 for adidas

    Bimbe Nel Pallone - A true story by C41 for adidas

    C41, through the curatorship of Naomi Accardi, the shots of Leone Balduzzi and the video of Luca A. Caizzi, narrates the extraordinary story of Mr. Jo and her “Bimbe Nel Pallone”. This project launches and baptizes the print ISSUE 10 of C41 Magazine, a meaningful step towards the maturity of the magazine based in Milan and Amsterdam, which has always sustained the enhancement of minorities and true stories.

    In a neighborhood classified as “dangerous”, Joanna Borella (Mr. Jo) offers girls of all ages the opportunity to play football while having fun and arising her awareness on the concept of equality.

    “Joanna Borella started throwing the ball at the same time she learned to stand and walk upon her arrival in Italy in the late 1960s. After spending the first year of her life in an orphanage in Bombay, Mister Jo – calling her in the same way she is known in the multicultural neighborhood of NOLO, north of the city of Milan where she lives and works – was welcomed into her new family by two older brothers who introduced her to the beautiful game of football. Football has become part of her daily life and within fifty years she has managed to become a household name in the local women’s football community thanks to her dedication in breaking down the prejudices that spoil the very essence of the game.”

    Reading Room presents: Magazine, dall'Italiano Magazzino #2 La Direzione Artistica

    Reading Room presents: Magazine, dall'Italiano Magazzino #2 La Direzione Artistica

    In Italy the Anglo-Saxon term "magazine" is increasingly preferred to "rivista". Magazine recalls the Italian "magazzino" (warehouse) and in fact the etymology confirms the common origin from the Arabic makhazin which means "to conserve, to store". The magazine would therefore be understood as a collection of stories and images, selected and ordered to be first published and then kept by readers. Starting from these premises, the cycle of talks Magazine, dall’Italiano Magazzino wants to generate and store narratives, voices, perspectives, to try to express the charm and complexity of the magazine.

    In the first talk the guests have discussed about the role of digital and the implications of social platforms, in the second appointment the invited art directors talked about the importance of editorial design and the changes in the publishing industry. The evolution of writing and the predominance of visual culture in the contemporaneity will be the themes of the September talks.

    The talks are hosted by Reading Room, the Milanese space dedicated to independent periodical publishing, in collaboration with Combo Milano and in media partnership with C41 magazine.
