About Cecilia
I am an independent Art Director, Visual Designer and Brand Strategist consultant based in Milan. I’m specialized in creation and management of brand identities, commissioned by direct clients as brands, companies and designers, and by design studios as well. Beyond that, I’m a true paper lover, literally obsessed with typography and always curious about what’s on in my city. And also when I travel, I always get in touch with local creative people. © pic by: Mattia Balsamini

For paper lovers! One of my fav place in the city is this little cozy place, just 35 square meters all covered by magazines. Basically, you are in heaven. As they say: “Reading Room wants to be a meeting place for fans, collectors, professionals and all those who, intrigued, decide to come in to browse a magazine. A space in Milan dedicated to the dissemination, understanding and appreciation of magazines.”  There you can find magazines about: photography, art, fashion, design, music; more than 200 international titles carefully selected. Reading Room stems from the desire to give voice and visibility to a phenomenon that in recent years, through visionary editorial projects, is redefining the publishing system and the sense of the printed paper at the time of the internet. Plus, they also organize events as project laughing events and talks. https://www.instagram.com/byreadingroom/
