Grazia, the Mondadori Group magazine edited by Silvia Grilli presents Together – Made in Grazia the third collectors’ issue, available on newsstands and at selected bookshops from 17 September.
Following the first issue dedicated to great Italian talent and the second which explored the future, this new edition will examine issues such as: inclusion, the fight against prejudice and discrimination, safeguarding the planet, the battle against digital bullying and probes new ways of working “together” to build a better world and the necessity to get active to combat all forms of discrimination.
“If divisions prevent us from finding a better way, with this special publication we want to contribute to overcoming the barriers, advancing rights and their constant defence. Because rights are never definitive, but are always provisional if we do not continuously fight to safeguard them,” declared the editor of Grazia Silvia Grilli.
The most significant contributions to this issue are by: writer and winner of the Premio Strega Edoardo Albinati who describes the discovery of beauty in mental distress, Marco Balzano winner of the Flaiano, Campiello, Bagutta prizes and the Prix Méditerranée who writes about the encounter of cultures that finally open up after a period of diffidence.
Also the writer Teresa Ciabatti interviews Renato Zero and does not refrain from singing of the utopia of a better world. Oscar-winner Jane Fonda reflects on the taboos in a society that excludes women because of their age while pop star Bebe Rexha makes peace with her body and recounts how only love and pride in ourselves can demolish discriminations against our bodies.
Another Oscar-winner, the director Oliver Stone, denounces the conformism of Hollywood, and in an intense interview with Pulitzer prize-winner Michael Cunningham, screenwriter Ivan Cotroneo looks at the fight against homophobia, which cannot exist without a fight against sexism, racism and anti-Semitism.
Extensive space is also given to fashion, with spectacular images in honour of an idea of beauty able to embrace also imperfections and articles inspired by nature and encounters between different cultures.
Together – Made in Grazia aims to probe the human soul, put itself in the shoes of others, and to embrace differences.
For Mediamond this third collection from Grazia once again confirms the great interest of the advertising market, marked by an excellent +23% increase in ad pages and a rise of +17% in ad revenues compared with the last issue published at the beginning of 2019.
