Emanuele Farneti talks about the April cover of Vogue Italia
The last cover of Vogue Italia is not like the others, writes the editor of Vogue Greece, Thaleia Karafyllidou. Refers to the April cover of our magazine, which is completely white.
As Emanuele Farneti, director of Vogue Italia, explained in his editorial: “We decided to print a completely white cover for the first time in our history not because the images were missing, indeed the opposite, but because white means many things to the same time. Just under two weeks ago, we were about to print a long-planned number that also involved L’Uomo, in a sister project. But talking about anything else, while people die, doctors and nurses risk their lives and the world is changing forever is not in Vogue Italia’s DNA. So, we put our project aside and started from scratch. ”

Vogue Italia’s latest cover is unlike any other, as Vogue Greece‘S editor-in-chief Thaleia Karafyllidou points out. She is referring to the cover of our April issue, which is completely white.
“The decision to print a completely white cover for the first time in our history is not because there was any lack of images – quite the opposite. We chose it because white signifies many things at the same time “, Farneti writes in his editor’s letter. “Just under two weeks ago, we were about to print an issue that we had been planning for some time, and which also involved L’Uomo Vogue in a twin project. But to speak of anything else – while people are dying, doctors and nurses are risking their lives and the world is changing forever – is not the DNA of Vogue Italia. Accordingly, we shelved our project and started from scratch “, he explains.
