From this week, Mondadori is strengthening the offer of the Starbene system with the launch of new content and services focused on health and wellness: integrated initiatives and tools able to provide readers and users with more and more answers on issues of interest for the whole family.
The new Starbene will feature with even greater immediacy all of the trends in living and eating well while interpreting, on a multi-channel basis, specialised content in a clear and immediate way while identifying products and services for its community. In line with the philosophy promoted by the brand, Starbene creates a direct relationship – through the pages of the magazine, the website and social networks – with those who want to live life in an aware and informed manner, as well as orienting the choice of products.
“Our brand is synonymous with a healthy lifestyle, a style of life for those who believe that health and information go hand in hand,” said Annalisa Monfreda, editor of Starbene. “What we wanted was to enhance, in print and digital, what sets us apart by providing to our entire public a network of over 100 experts, something that has always been a strength of the magazine,” concluded Monfreda.
