ARCHIVIO is a magazine created and published by Promemoria Group. A unique object whose inspiration is to bring to light unpublished fragments and extraordinary stories from the archives, giving voice to the materials and the professionals who work there. The ambition is to show their passion, make us reflect and offer new perspectives on the idea and practice of memory. ARCHIVIO is renewed every 4 issues: it maintains the name, intentions and vision, but changes the editorial team, the design and the inspirations, in order to always have new interpretations. Thanks to the collaboration of important professionals on the international scene, since 2018 the magazine has explored over 120 archives in 9 different issues, four of which are already sold out.

When did fashion become obsessed with its own history? The third cycle of ARCHIVIO begins here: four thematic issues, each edited by a Guest Editor specialized in the sector who opens the doors of the archives for us and shows us where to observe in these vast worlds. The first, ARCHIVIO N°9, is dedicated to Fashion, with Stefano Tonchi – curator and journalist in the sector – as Guest Editor-in-Chief, supported by Marco Pecorari – scholar and Program Director of the MA in Fashion Studies at Parsons in Paris. The editorial direction is by Daniela Hamaui, while the artistic direction is by Alessandro Gori. For the cover we asked the artist Francesco Vezzoli to create a portfolio that brought fashion archives into dialogue with pop culture.

ARCHIVIO N°9 explores the international panorama of fashion archives and the numerous types of studies that are taking place in today's world. All divided into three sections: Public & Institutional , Brand & Strategies , Private & Personal .
The Fashion Issue also includes a special poster: an (in)complete mapping of the countless fashion archives in Italy. A Reminder search visually processed by Accurat. The result is a map that is also a small work of art.
