The smile of women: the new issue of Vanity Fair celebrates women


"The smile of women": the new issue of Vanity Fair celebrates the irony of women through the voices of great Italian and international artists

Vanity Fair, on newsstands from July 29, dedicates the new issue to the irony of women through the voices of great Italian and international artists.

"In an Italy where out of 10 people who return to work after the lockdown, only 3 are women, there is nothing to laugh about," says the director Simone Marchetti. "But precisely for this reason we wanted an entire issue of Vanity Fair dedicated to female irony, an author's humor, or rather an author's humor, which was able to unhinge and sometimes even to bring down the male chauvinism that grips this country with strength of the most unexpected weapon: laughter .

"The smile of women" is the title chosen for this special issue that sees on the cover Monica Vitti, among the first to steal the stage from men and to use, as a weapon, self-irony, a ram's head to unhinge the true bulwark of male chauvinism, as he writes Michela Murgia.

As in a stand-up comedy, the words of Italian artists, actresses, performers (plus an international star) fill the pages of the issue and in their profession and in their life they also use fun and lightness: Katia Follesa he recounts his references from the past, from Zucchero's "dududu women" to Anna Marchesini; La Pina reflects on the concept of emancipation; the involuntary humor of relationships is instead the theme explored by Daniela Collu; Virginia Raffaele he tells of when he realized he had a comic power "transforming"; for the first time the queen of Instagram, of Australian origin, Celeste Barber gives an interview to an Italian magazine: she who makes the verse to Hollywood stars, speaks of irony as a gift that saved her in moments of crisis and that undermines the myth of perfection; Luciana Littizzetto that comedy has no sex, but it is easier to make fun of boys; Serena Dandini, explains why female comedy is revolutionary; the writer Barbara Alberti gives a hilarious (familiar) story about envy; Carla Signoris stresses that women no longer want to be pigeonholed in anything, and she herself refuses the comic actress label; Michela Giraud she tells of the woman who is always the mother of her boyfriends too; Caterina Guzzanti he writes a letter to his daughter: "In life, one must never recite"; Drusilla Foer he talks about the precious rules of bon ton (and grandmother) about elegance; the millennial Pilar Fogliati reflects on diets, beauty routines and some vices; while Chiara Francini he wonders: "To be or not to be the first in the class? this is the dilemma … .

"One last note," adds Simone Marchetti. «On July 31st Franca Valeri turns 100. We would have liked it in this team of artists, but unfortunately it was not possible. This issue of Vanity Fair wants to be a birthday present to you, immense artist

The project "The smile of women" also arrives on the social profiles of Vanity Fair: the voices of the artists in the number are flanked by those of the young Tiktokers, protagonists of some live on the Instagram profile of Vanity Fair, who will tell the comedy under 30: Cecilia Cantarano, Martina Socrate, Maryna, Giorgia Malerba, Jessica Brugali and Jenny De Nucci.

Everyone is called to imagine their own Phase 4. For Sorrentino, this phase coincides with the myth of the Great Italian Beauty, treasure and opportunity, an ocean of excellence to look at and from which to draw any hypothesis of rebirth. For readers who watch it, it is a call to commitment and imagination: everyone can send their vision of the future using the hashtag # phase4 and describing their dream for tomorrow with a photograph.

The contents of the issue will be enriched by some videos documenting the director's long work, all shot in the eternal city during the lockdown. For this special issue, the city of Rome has exclusively opened some of its major cultural institutions for reportage and artistic performances organized by Vanity Fair together with Paolo Sorrentino, documented in the issue and in the videos. Among these, the Borghese Gallery and the Opera House.
