ARCHIVIO is a biannual Italian magazine focused on archives and the edition is exclusively built with archive's documents. Each issue involves the most relevant archivesfrom all over the world with a high quality selection of pictures and exclusive contents.
ARCHIVIO magazine is an innovative publishing project which focus will be exclusively on the archive’s culture and reality. It is the first time that a publishing venture is born out of the need to enhance this huge heritage.
Every issue will be constructed around a theme, but in a loose way, browsing from art to fashion, culture, sport, design, cinema, science, photography… No barriers.
We want to use our ability to watch everything from a contemporary point of view, because what archives can teach us is how memory becomes future.
Every person is a memory. Memory which may be conjured up by joining the dots between what the subject has experienced over the years, starting from a personal history – which allows for a certain clinical-narrative accuracy – only to then go on to delve into the collective sphere, investigating and recounting private and institutional archives that accompany us through the presentation of the facts. Home to the facts are the eras: that’s why over the following issues we will identify four decade-long containers. We shall start off from that closest to us and that furthest away, so that archives may be created: the 1990s.
