Intersection Italia


Intersection Italia

Intersection, quite possibly the world’s only car magazine with style, has just rolled out its Italian version. Worlds away from the hyper photoshopped chrome and burnt rubber glossy pages of other car mags, this is a nuts and bolts, design savvy look at the incredibly powerful culture surrounding the automobile and other equally lusty modes of transport. And perhaps most importantly, you can read one in public without looking like a meathead or hormonal teenage boy.

The inaugural issue features Phillippe Starck (and a novel car design by him), Jean Nouvel and Jun Takahashi among others, as well as a look at West Coast USA’s roadside tourist stops (commonly called autogrills in Italian), Chinese take-away bike/camper hybrids, a keen look at an open source automobile among a host of other gearhead fancies. 2DM double teamed an editorial, as well, with a gritty piece by photog Bruna Kazinoti and stylist Ilaria Norsa. With its a-ok art direction replete with a slathering of slab-serifs by Francesco Petroni, excellent editorial curation and the style and reverence that the oft-maligned automobile deserves, we’re pretty revved up about Intersection Italia. Benvenuto!
