ArchivioUCSC Centenary Edition

 - Archivio
Special issue dedicated to the last one hundred years through the archives of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore.
This special edition was conceived on the occasion of the Centenary of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, which relied on Promemoria to talk about its archives through a new perspective and an unusual format as proposed by the editorial staff of Archivio Magazine. Every archives hides a special story, one or more tales that have never been read, never been heard: traces, signs that can give life to new interpretations of the past and the present. To sharper visions of our future. The UCSC Centenary Edition by Archivio Magazine is a work of research and narration, an unprecedented witness to how unexpected a project born at the center of a story, at the center of History—in the archives—can be.
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 The edition is exclusively built with archive's documents, mostly unpublished and each issue involves most relevant archives from all over the world.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.
