From today, Wednesday 6 January, the new issue of Vanity Fair which he sees as the protagonist Pope francesco together with his message to face 2021 with love and hope: "We are all in the same boat, we must become a great human family".

"We had a dream, at Vanity Fair, for the end of 2020: to start the new year with a message from Pope Francis, to entrust him with the task of opening 2021 with confidence in a better tomorrow", writes in his editorial the director of the weekly Simone Marchetti. “In recent months, we have talked extensively with his collaborators. And today we are proud of this issue which reports two great themes dear to the Pontiff and also fundamental for Vanity Fair: respect and love for diversity, all diversities. And the hope that the vaccine will be available for everyone, without distinction or nationalism, and above all for the most vulnerable and needy .

The cover portrays the serene face of the Pontiff who recalls a phrase of St. Francis, "All Brothers", a universal invitation addressed to every man and woman to be a great human family beyond diversity, indeed by accepting, loving and respecting diversity of all. A message that Vanity Fair for its cover has decided to translate into different languages.

A special issue that arrives on newsstands after months of pandemic and in the first days of the new year to remind us that "from a crisis like this one does not come out the same, but better or worse", as His Holiness recalled in his Pentecost homily.

The Pope's message continues inside the issue with an extract from the Urbi et Orbi Christmas blessing granted to Vanity Fair. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, 84, is the 266th Pontiff: from St. Francis of Assisi he inherited not only the name but also the desire to embrace all diversity.

Vanity Fair launches its first cartoon – Italian Cuisine


Vanity Fair launches its first cartoon produced by Mad Entertainment: a Christmas short film starring Roberto Bolle, an artist also celebrated on the cover

Roberto Bolle is the protagonist of the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair on newsstands from December 16 and also of the first cartoon created by the weekly with MAD, award-winning Italian animation studio.

"We will dance together again" is the title of the author's short and together the cover shout of an issue dedicated to the tales of Christmas, to the stories of hope and the dreams of artists and ordinary people who in this difficult year have managed to transform difficulties into projects, into hope and into opportunities.

Precisely for this reason, on the cover there could only be him, Roberto Bolle, one of the most famous dancers in the world, an example of resilience and strength. "I know I gave up childhood, adolescence and youth," says the étoile in the interview with Vanity Fair. “But I'm also aware that those periods will never return. I have been a soldier. One always on the march. But I'm not one of those soldiers who wrote letters from the front full of regret or nostalgia. I have chosen my fate. I went towards my future .

And when asked how to choose a destiny, he replies: «With clarity, tenacity and determination. To give oneself to dance in an all-encompassing way meant not giving in to despair and not changing direction when every clue suggested abandoning it. We are human beings: we have ups and downs. To resist the seconds I had to give myself a mental approach. In my job, body care is fundamental, but without your head you can't go anywhere ".

Bolle says that for those who do their job, over time, you learn above all that there is no fall from which you cannot get up and that there is something that goes beyond passion and talent: "Chance. You rehearse for months in the dance hall and then suddenly you stumble. A fall can change the course of a career. It takes humility, a sense of thrill, the ability to endure loneliness. Dance leads you to improve body and spirit. Give dreams and magic. But as with everything there is a price . Speaking of loneliness: «Loneliness has been a great traveling companion. I found myself immersed in it and had to deal with it. By nature I am quite a lonely person, but at first, when I was traveling to fulfill very difficult commitments in front of which I felt inadequate, having to face them alone was tough. Then, I must have been about twenty-seven, everything changed and I began to savor solitude for what it is: no longer a limit, but an achievement. A form of freedom. A pass for absolute concentration. I could go around the cities, decline the days at my own pace, leave an unpacked suitcase for weeks without anyone being able to tell me: “Roberto, tidy up” .

The story of Roberto Bolle, the efforts, the constancy, his constant pushing beyond the limits of the body and of destiny are the best metaphor of what is happening, of how to face it, of how to never stop throwing the heart over every obstacle , for this reason the protagonist of the first Vanity Fair cartoon could only be him.
“One thing has always impressed me about classical dancers. And it is not about the spectacular evolutions or the most intense interpretations , writes the director Simone Marchetti in his editorial. "What makes me think of their art is the smile they have always printed on their faces while they are on stage, a serene and proud expression even when they take the most difficult steps, the most painful, the most dangerous. They smile. As if nothing had happened. Because the effort, the suffering, the fear must never be seen. The viewer, on the other hand, must look at the art, the character, the history ".

The cartoon "We will dance together again" directed by Francesco Filippini is a new project, a surprise for readers: it is a work created by Mad Entertainment, a jewel of Italian creativity, a production house that includes, in the historic building of " L'oro di Napoli ", a creative factory in which about 40 young creatives work, including directors, screenwriters, designers, animators and dreamers able to give body, color, emotions and words to works that make the hearts of the spectators beat faster the world.

This animated short will be available from December 16 on the Vanity Fair website and social channels. But that's not all: to celebrate Christmas together with all readers and users, Vanity Fair launches an Instagram filter that allows you to play with the covers to become the protagonists of a special greeting card. "What would you like to find under the tree?" is the question posed to friends of the newspaper: actors, singers and celebrities who have told in a video what is the gift, symbolic or not, that they would like to receive at these holidays. Their answers can be found on the weekly's Tik Tok profile.
