This Magazine of Ours
When art and science come together
For over twenty years, some of the most enlightened cultural debates in Italy unfolded on the pages of Pirelli. Rivista d'informazione e di tecnica, a magazine published from 1948 to 1972. Topics concerning science and technology interacted with essays on art, architecture, design, and literature. During the visit to the Pirelli Foundation, and to its historical archive and exhibition spaces, the students will listen to the contributions of writers, journalists, poets, and scientists, and they will see the works of the photographers, illustrators and graphic designers who helped create this magazine. Working together like a real editorial board, with the support of digital applications, the students will draft a new issue of the magazine based on the editorial project of the historic magazine: from writing articles to selecting the illustrations, from the graphics to the layout.
