Menelique is a new Italian magazine founded by Giovanni Tateo, Matteo Cresti e Fabrizio Soldano (but with an almost all female editorial staff!) with an intentionally political purpose: to face the intellectual desert in which we live, unable to stem the culture of hatred that occupies more and more spheres of public life.
In addition to insights into politics and current affairs, with a critical and feminist eye, Menelique does not lack short stories, photographic reports and illustrations.
Direct and clear from the index (divided into quadrants according to the accessible-complex and short-long coordinates) to the graphics, Menelique is what is missing in Italian political publishing, with its démodé visual design and its logics designed for a male audience .
Number of pages: 144
Basket, nuoto, skateboard, wrestling, yoga, roller derby, football, taekwondo, bodybuilding, running, futsal, Vasca ball, mayan ball, boxing and sa murra are some of the sports discussed in the new issue of Menelique magazine.
Thinking about it, many of these disciplines are not sports and it is difficult to define what a sport is and what it is not, especially if we doubt the necessary involvement of competition, the dependence on institutions that define the rules or even the centrality of the sport. physical activity (are digital sports sports?). But if it is difficult to understand what a sport is, it is easy to notice the peculiar character of sports publishing: the individual and his exaltation. Also (especially!) When dealing with team sports. Since sports publishing, in addition to being a thing for men, is also individualistic, this issue of menelique dedicated to sport follows an editorial line that moves away from these coordinates and focuses on the social, political and cultural elements that concern different disciplines , as well as on little-known sports in Italy, or on the corporealities involved in the sports world and their representations.
