L'Integrale is an independent Italian magazine of bread and culture conceived as a series of magazines-books. Bread, which has always accompanied and intertwined with human stories, becomes here the horizon and the pretext for exploring the things of the world through essays, reportages, stories, photographs and drawings. Each issue consists of a part dedicated to longforms, signed by Italian and international authors and authors, and a final part of fixed columns, including that of recipes "experienced" by bakers and the photographic column of Fontanesi. The illustrations, which run through all the pages, are created specifically for the magazine.

It tells of the ovens used by the partisans in the Cuneo valleys and of an eastern Milanese oven that experienced the transformation of the landscape from countryside to hinterland.
