It is urgent to run for culture

Between the scent of paper and that of ink, we carefully select independent magazines that represent a cure at the time of unculture as a value. By promoting editorial projects with refined content and aesthetics, we want to make a gesture of love and resistance.

Who is Frab's

Frab's is the remedy for those who have lost the senses of things. It selects and sells high quality and collectible periodicals online, usually hard to find in Italy.

Behind Frab's is me, Anna, a journalist from Molise who has moved to Romagna, there is my great passion for independent publishing, and there is Dario, the indispensable "accountant" of this great little cultural activity. Together we work constantly to give voice to this wonderful world that deserves to be valued also in Italy.
