HAMAM is a new quarterly magazine launched in summer 2020 more unique than rare. In fact, it deals exclusively with a topic that no other magazine talks about: bathing (metaphors for letting go, lazing).
With a real obsession for the bathroom, among its pages this very particular editorial product collects essays, projects by artists, photographs and interviews with collaborators from all over the world who understand the moment of the bathroom as one of the best practices of letting go. By reading this magazine you will discover all the details of what can be considered as the greatest healer in history: the bathroom. It is from this ancient practice of "transformation" that our inspiration flows endlessly. In the place where water and skin meet for ritual purification, we declare a solemn truth: no one is the same, but all are equally welcome.

ISSUE 4 - NAKED
Hamam 4's theme is Naked, as a commentary on the natural and unaltered state of things. Being naked doesn't mean exposing your body, it means being visible, vulnerable and ready to let go.
