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 issue 2 is guided byOscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Beauty, art, immortality, pleasures, the transience of life, art for art’s sake, conscience.
