Searching through archives for intriguing photography and surprising stories, the makers of Archivio magazine use historical records to provide a fresh and original perspective on the world.


Andreas Gursky argued that “Reality deserves to be represented only where it is constructed”. When reality can change in a moment, archives take on an important role in preserving the past. However the act of archiving, in its selective nature, itself distorts the past and manipulates ‘reality’. This fourth issue asks how we can define the truth of things, and if a story can ever be objective.


In this issue:


  • Enrico Deaglio tells a story of racial persecution and anti-Semitism in Milan
  • Bill Owens’ iconic shots of post-war stars and stripes suburbia
  • Carlo Antonelli breaks into the cultural environment where Stone Island founder Massimo Osti was trained
  • The alteration of the body on a theatre stage
  • How perception is altered by the gaze in art and psychology
