Gloria Maria Cappelletti
From Benevento, 42, after a road accident (a degree in law), she decides to follow her passion for fashion to the full.
She made her debut as a slave-intern at Cosmopolitan, and then went on as assistant first and then stylist at Io Donna. There she began her first experiments with writing, which became the focus of her work once he moved to Velvet.
The idea after all is not so bad, given that today she is the Fashion Editor of La Repubblica and its weekly issue "D": writes about fashion shows, customs, society, manias, myths and stories. There are a lot of things to say about this world!
Gloria Maria Cappelletti has consolidated her reputation as a pioneer in digital art through her respected and homonymous "Gloria Maria Gallery", where she made known and supported some of the most influential digital artists of our generation who, often, were at the beginning of the their career as Petra Cortright, Rafaël Rozendaal and Amalia Ulman. Since 1999 she has been an agent at the international photographers agency Management Artists, consolidating the career of photographers and directors such as Steven Klein, Stephane Sednaoui and Daniel Sannwald, to name a few. Gloria Maria is curator of the Milan Fashion Film Festival, now in its fifth edition. Since 2013, Editor at Large of iD.co Italy has also been the Creative Director of VICE Fashion & Luxury Group Italy, a three-hundred and sixty-degree creative agency by Vice Media that deals with research, strategy, creativity, development, production, content distribution and activation worldwide.
Fashion is and must be a cultural industry that continues to be challenged by more and more different forms of communication, printed press, the web and social networks.
Through the eyes of those who create the system in its entirety, this meeting aims to examine the state-of-the-art and future of communication of the project.
