ZINE N°1 – Salt Age

Eta del Sale

Preview Cover

The first issue of Raccogliere will tell the story of these objects, alongside features and short articles involving local designers, renowned scientists and campaigners as well as chefs. Together they collectively tell the stories around climate change, the dilemma of UNESCO protection and the inaccessibility of the marshlands as a common good.
    Each issue of the zine will follow the principle of using the lens of a non-human actor (such as plants, objects and animals) to engage with and thereby offering new pers-pectives on the changing ecosystem. The zine is printed on a risograph machine (rice-based inks) with three colours on recycled offset paper. The design of the first zine takes visual cues and references from the Venetian lagoon landscape.
