Archivio magazine is an innovative semestrial publishing project which focuses 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 is constructed around a theme, but in a loose way, browsing from art to fashion, culture, sport, design, cinema, science, photography… No barriers. The edition is exclusively built with archive's documents, mostly unpublished and each issue involves most relevant archives from all over the world. Each time through a high quality selection of documents, pictures and exclusive contents, Archivio's aim is to rebuild the contemporary culture opening up the heritage and richness of the archive's world, by using our ability to watch everything from a contemporary point of view, because what archives can teach us is how memory becomes future.
