Orlando is a huge, sumptuous magazine from Italy, celebrating literature, art, culture, music and anything that inspires and delights be that artisan Parisian perfumeries or classic line-drawings of Pinocchio.
The magazine is also constructed like a hotel. As you travel from the restaurant, to the spa, the hotel rooms and even the garage, you'll meet different hotel 'guests' from contemporary artists, designers, musicians and actors, to winemakers and artisans.
Each issue is also inspired by a classic work of fiction and this inaugural issue takes the epic poem, Orlando Furioso by Ludovico Ariosto.
From the publisher:
'In this Issue we had amazing guests at the Orlando Hotel: Luigi Serafini, genius author of the Codex Seraphinianus, the iper-realiste painter Miriam Escofet, who painted Queen Elizabeth II, the brilliant contemporary composer Stefano Fasce, the American artist Ian Fisher, famous for his dreamy clouds, then we have the wallpaper designer Anna Glover, the flowers photographer Kreetta Järvenpää, the magic illustrator Elisa Seitzinger.'
