Paola Girardi has been appointed as the new editor of Casaviva from 2 November.
Girardi, born in Bari, she began her career at Mondadori, in 1982, in the graphic design area. She became a qualified journalist in 1985, and the following year she moved to Casaviva where she remained until 1989. From ’89 to ‘98 she was head of the design and layout department of Elle Decor (Edizioni Edif) before returning to Mondadori, to work on the weekly Grazia, where she worked also on the title’s supplements. In 2000 she was appointed editor of Sposabella (Condé Nast) and, after editing the travel magazine V&S (Edizioni Quadratum) from 2006 to 2009, she took the helm at Home (Hachette Rusconi), where she remained until now.
Casaviva is the leading title in the homes and furniture segment, in which Mondadori operates with a number of established titles that cover all of the circulation and advertising targets in the sector.
With a formula based on lifestyles, the evolution of tastes, the pleasures of the home and a constant update on production, Casaviva is an essential point of reference in the interiors market.
