First episode of author’s interpretations

Each issue of IL, an exclusive and special guest. The promise made by IL to its readers continues, with the launch of the new graphics and new programming. The issue that comes out on newsstands from 29 May with Il Sole 24 Ore is a unique piece, a true collector’s number.

For the first time the award-winning artist, Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale, Camille Henrot puts her art at the service of IL fashion and “reads” the collection of suits for autumn-winter with her trait pictorial that combines different techniques, watercolor and collage, combining it with the use of Japanese colors and brushes and with its colorful, subtle and meaningful style. A corpus of 28 original works, created exclusively for IL and characterized by Henrot’s eclecticism in experimenting with the different means of expression of his artistic practice.

The project is the first episode of the author’s reinterpretations of the stylists’ proposals, by the well-known curator Milovan Farronato, who conceived this original cycle of works of art inspired by fashion exclusively for IL.

The # 1 series-project involved the French artist, Camille Henrot, who lives and works in New York where he makes films, draws, sculpts, paints and conceives installations to investigate what it means to be, at the same time, a private individual and a global subject. In addition to the prestigious 2013 Venetian award for the film Grosse Fatigue, Camille Henrot received the Nam June Paik Award in 2014 and the Edvard Munch Award in 2015. In the autumn of 2021, an exhibition of his will be hosted in the renovated Munch Museum in Oslo.

Another chapter dedicated to art and another exclusive: the visual interview with Emilio Isgrò, where the “master of erasure”, conceptual artist and painter, but also poet, writer, playwright and director, to answer IL’s questions, created two original photographs.

Intimate, profound, written like a true educational novel, Paolo Fresu’s musical autobiography, which is told with an open heart about IL, through a soundtrack that talks about his life, from Lucio Dalla to the village bands.

Another great novelty: starting from this issue, the Mail of the Heart of IL, an original, contemporary version of the classic section of letters of private confidences. Stories and questions “from man to man” answered by Luca Ricci, the writer of L’amore and other forms of hatred (Einaudi 2006, Chiara Prize). A regular appointment for IL readers who want to talk about love, sex, feelings.

Two great insights: “The war of the generations”, where the clash has become the new class struggle. Three authors analyze the consequences of the breakdown of the pact between generations, where the Millennials pay the most. And “The Southern Question” a journey into the stereotypes still deeply rooted between North and South. With another exclusive (a number full of exclusives this IL), a speech by the great Dutch journalist and writer Jan Brokken on “why the Dutch complain of the Italians but they cannot do without them “.

Finally, for the great investigations of IL, an interview by Raffaella Calandra to the national anti-mafia prosecutor Federico Cafiero de Raho on criminal solidarity and new affiliations and in particular on the phenomenon of “reverse lace”.

And then fashion, accessories, technology, cars, fashion, sports equipment and the fixed appointment with “The talking objects” by the writer Enrico Dal Buono.

IL is promoted by a campaign to support the planned exit on 24 ORE Group vehicles. The issue is also supported by a digital campaign on all the Group’s online and social media.

IL supports Treedom and plants a tree for each issue.
