Marisa and Marco on the cover of Vanity Fair: 101 and 102 years together for 80. For Valentine's Day, the weekly arrives on newsstands with a special issue that celebrates the generation that symbolizes love that wins everything

After the success of the number starring Pope Francis, which scored + 38% on newsstands compared to the same number of the previous year, and the digital campaign #iomivaccino, with over 4.6 MIO impressions, 4.4 MIO total reach, 59.3k video views , 92k total engagement and numerous well-known faces involved, Vanity Fair comes out on newsstands with a special issue dedicated to love.

"Like every year, on the anniversary of the feast of lovers, in the editorial office we asked ourselves how to tell love in the time of Covid-19", writes the director Simone Marchetti in his editorial. "This year there is also a special anniversary: ​​twenty years ago, the last kiss, the film by Gabriele Muccino that fascinated an entire country, arrived on the screens of cinemas. We therefore thought of imagining the first kiss we will give each other once the virus has left us. And here is the genesis of this cover: to celebrate the affection, strength, tenderness of a generation that has seen it all. The war, the pain, the fear. The reconstruction of Italy, the sweat of conquests, the tears of defeat. All to then finally face the most cowardly enemy: a virus that does not even have the courage to be seen ”.

So the kiss of becomes the protagonist of the cover Marisa Stradella (101 years) is Marco Razzini (102) who have loved each other for 80 years. Their bond, born in a Milan at war, was not lost even when Marco, a prisoner in Russia, was unable to give news of himself for more than three years during which Marisa never lost hope that they would see each other again. . They have never separated since his return. And now, after three children, six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, their love story continues. The tale of this generation continues with Stefano Bozzino, the Alpine who had traveled around the world playing the accordion under the window of the hospital where his wife was hospitalized. For the first time he tells of the recent death of his beloved and of the love that never ends.

The image of their kiss symbolizes a life manual that tells what love is. A love capable of winning everything and which also returns within the pages of the issue through the stories of other protagonists: Penelope and Alessandro, 18 and 19 who knew each other by sight, but fell in love exchanging messages during the first lockdown. Together for 16 and a half years, the web influencer Linda Tol and the photographer Renwe Jules four months ago they became Louie Gene's parents, a gift that was made to wait for. The men, the success, the disappointments, the strength to go forward always and in any case: the actress Serena Grandi, protagonist of the new film by Pupi Avati She speaks to me again, the story of an endless love, tells the lights and shadows of a life lived with passion. From the first to the last kiss. Finally there is Samuel Bersani. After seven years of silent recording he is back with a new album and a song that is the sequel to "En e Xanax", the hymn to a love of two people who shared panic attacks and the desire to accept their fears . Today, in the interview with Vanity Fair, after the end of that love, with the song Your Memory, the singer-songwriter explains that he closes a circle with the past and talks about the creative block that had paralyzed him.

Cristina D'Avena on the cover of Vanity Fair Italia – Italian Cuisine

At a time when much is forbidden to us, Vanity Fair celebrates desire with a special issue dedicated to love. Cover star, Cristina D'Avena as you've never seen her before

Vanity Fair celebrates desire, love and life beyond this difficult moment and does so by putting on the cover a character who has chosen to stop the usual clothes to dress those of those who have no intention of resigning themselves to the roughness: a Cristina D'Avena shining, proud, mistress of her own erotic, human, emotional potential.

The singer and actress – who made her debut at the age of 3 at the Zecchino d'oro and then sang the theme songs of all the most loved cartoons for several generations – reveals her sexy (and unprecedented) side in the Vanity Fair issue on newsstands from Wednesday 4th November. In the role of Dita Von Teese she poses for this special issue because, as she says, "In these uncertain times, the only way to exorcise fear is to cultivate and practice desire".

"The real problem is that we have lost our innocence: in March, when the first lockdown began, there was hope at the end of the tunnel, everything will be fine, the songs on the balconies, the batches of cakes, the live Instagram. All confined, some alone, others in company, however all convinced that something had to be sacrificed to get everything back ", writes the editor in his editorial Simone Marchetti. “But here we are: more disappointed, angrier, perhaps even more afraid than before. Because it is not just the virus and the prospect of yet another collapse of work, the economy and security that frighten us: it makes us anxious not to see the light at the end of the tunnel, the end of this terribly memorable year. And here comes this new, provocative issue of Vanity Fair: we designed a newspaper to celebrate desire, love, life, our body and that of others, our sexuality, that of those we love and those we desire, as well as this difficult moment .

In the pages of the issue, Cristina D’Avena interviewed by Marchetti tells us that only two things are valid for her at this moment: tolerance and hope. «The tolerance that is being lost due to the bias of social media and so much contemporary politics is fundamental to understand everything: others, what doesn't work, what works, how to adapt. And hope is a consequence of it: hope is the virtue of those who can see the light at the end of the tunnel. It is an exercise in strength .

How does he manage to exorcise fear? Living the power of the moments we still have. "We must love, embrace who we can, make love when we can, take advantage of every single second as if it were a gift. Don't think I'm superficial. I think my life and career have taught me to cultivate a healthy dose of childhood. And going back to being a child doesn't mean being superficial. It means, on the other hand, to be more positive because children know how to be light, great gift, and they know how to live better with difficult times because they have the carefree nature of reinventing themselves .

Her role as a child woman and a child woman makes men and women love her indiscriminately because she embodies the light-heartedness of childhood and the sensual chiaroscuro of adulthood, because it is reassuring and it seems to have always known her. Cristina D'Avena admits that she likes to awaken desire, to be a source of attraction and when the director asks her how it was to change her image so much for this cover she replies: "It's a provocation, an invitation to melt, to tolerate, to love more, to hope. I really think this is to be lived as a testing moment. And in moments of trial you have to do one thing above all: resist. And never lose faith. In the meantime, I recommend closing the doors of the house, turning off social media, cutting out everything and everyone. And love. We ourselves, who is close to us, who loves us. Because if you forget to love, you forget everything .

The number of in-depth studies dedicated to the theme of desire: sex over 60 told by the writer complete the number Lidia Ravera; the second eros Barbara Alberti; the testimonies of the children of hard movie stars or Leonardo Tano (son of Rocco Siffredi) e Mercédesz Henger (daughter of Éva Henger and Riccardo Schicchi); the designer is also the protagonist Betony Vernon considered the queen of erotic jewelry e Violeta Benini the "disseminator" who has over one hundred thousand followers on Instagram; cybersex is also explored at the time of lockdown and social distancing and Tinder, the dating app that in the time of Covid has become one of the few places to meet. Finally, the Vanity Fair editorial team went to visit Fabrizio Corona under house arrest.

This week, the Vanity Fair site and the Instagram profile will turn red with a series of live shows, interviews and specials to discuss desire, sexuality and the body beyond the difficult moment and beyond stereotypes.
